This will be your first essay assignment and it will be on the topic of Chapter 12, Personality.
In this first assignment we will be going overt the concepts of personality with an emphasis on Freud and Psychoanalytic study. One of Freud’s main beliefs is that who you are came to be by past experiences in your childhood. Most of your habits, desires, and work ethic come from experiences that happened as a child. The bond and discipline from each of your parents is a key to how you developed in your personality. Your culture and where you were raised has a huge factor in this as well. Freud believed that specifically, your experiences through sex drives as a child helped shape your personality. He came up with psycho sexual stages of development. For your paper I would like you to explain how your habits, desires, and work ethic may have been shaped by your childhood. You may use psycho sexual stages of development as a guide, but if this is difficult, you do not need to use it. You will create an APA style paper that will be 3-4 pages long (not including the cover or reference page) and you will also use at least 3 sources (you can use the textbook as one of those sources) This assignment is worth 15% of your total grade in this class.
