Fun psychology facts, psychoanalysis

Fun psychology facts: psychology means the study of man's behavior and mind generally. The term comes from the Greek word for soul. Psychology usually means the inquiry into the workings of a normal mind. As such, it has been carried out in many ways for as long as man has been capable of thinking about the reasons for, and the nature of, his thoughts and actions.

In later years, inquiry into disturbed minds, with definite problems, has been called psychiatry, which is a branch of medical science. In the late 1800s, Sigmund Freud began to investigate the mental conditions of persons with emotional problems. Freud's experiences led him to develop a method of treatment called psychoanalysis, Freud has described the results of his work in psychoanalysis essays. Two of Freud's colleagues, Alfred Adler and Carl Gustav Jung, broke away to form other schools.

Much about human psychology has been discovered by studying the behavior and responses of animals under controlled conditions. Ivan Pavlov, a Russian physiologist, experimented with dogs. A typical device used by later psychologists was to place rats in specially constructed mazes to observe how they learned the way out by trial and error. People's emotions and mental processes can be examined by analyzing the results of various tests set by psychologists. Often, the people being tested have to fill in specially designed forms.

Psychoanalysis facts: it is a method of treatment for people who are mentally disturbed. It was first developed by Sigmund Freud an Austrian doctor, and described in his psychoanalysis essays. Freud believed that mental conflict in a person could arise from repressed fears and desires in the unconscious part of the mind.

Psychoanalytical treatment is typically carried out by relaxing patients on couches and encouraging them to talk freely until the root cause of the mental trouble comes to light. Often the trouble may be traced to some incident or condition that occurred in early childhood. Once the cause of disturbance is determined, treatment becomes possible.
