Meet Freud, he is an odd psychologist-psychoanalyst to be precise. Sure, he was a famous psychologist that made so many contributions on modern-day psychology, and Freud through observations, determined symptoms and was able to come up with follow-up observation OF patients; however Freud attributed symptoms of, for instance, one's anger toward one's husband to sex and aggression. In fact, even during the stages of growth (baby to adult), at one point, Freud believed that toddlers had the feelings of Oedipus complex, which is when all the boys secretly had feelings to their mothers, that was greater than how a son would love their mother, and therefore developed feelings of jealousy towards their father. Moreover, Freud prescribed LSD (cocaine)to his patients, before it was even illegal. Very interesting, eh?
