  • 1. A Personality is the characteristics and patterns of  feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, which make a person exceptional, one of a kind and exclusive to his or herself. Personality originates within an individual and remains consistent throughout life. Personality psychologists can interest distinctive characteristics of individuals, and similarities among people or groups. People are different from one another is evident. Every person  born is unique to his or herself. Including identical twins, they differ in fingerprints and personalities. Without a doubt, many scientific study of personalities and how individual differences have been performed. However, studying individual difference suggests studying inconsistency of how people are different, and only able to study the central tendencies of the individual. An individual can be characterized in conditions of he or she is inside. Maybe an important question of the difference is if people are more alike to his or herself over time because of situations they go through in life, and the deviation of an individual begins to change over time.<br />Of course, everyone knows when Freud did not create or invent the idea of the conscious versus the unconscious mind. The psychological community has an accountability to ensure to make others are aware of it and making the concept popular. A person is aware of the conscious mind this is the state he or she are in during the present time. What is happening at that moment, while a person is making memories, having feelings to the unconscious mind that will hold and recall them for a later time. Freud believed to work close with the conscious mind called the preconscious, what we might today call "available memory:" anything that obvious, memories a person is  not thinking of at that moment, yet a person can readily bring to mind. Today no one has a problem with this concept of the mind.The unconscious groups together everything that is not simply accessible to our consciousness, especially those things, which are so hurtful to us and we do our best to tuck them away because we do not want to deal with the pain of the memory. The unconscious also has an instinct of what a person can handle emotionally and what he or she cannot and will not allow the memory of suffering, death, or loss on a constant basis.<br />Freud found these theories challenging and was unsure how he if he could continue after the halfhearted welcome from The Interpretation<br />of Dreams, Freud "virtually cut off from the outside world.” (Pieces of the Mind, in Conflict, 29, 2004) Freud’s’ colleagues, decided he was immature sexuality, and decided he was unusual at best, and misrepresent at worst. However, in the fall of 1902, a younger generation of doctors began to show interest in Freud's work among them names like Adler, Jung, and Otto Rank would become interested and in Freud’s work and make, a name for themselves because of understanding what Freud was teaching at the time. Soon, similar psychoanalytic groups would spring up throughout the world. Freud and the young doctors formed a group to discuss psychoanalysis and named it The Wednesday Psychological Society. Soon groups much like The Wednesday Psychological Society began to develop around the world (2004).<br />Personality psychology deals with issues and questions, which is mutually common with human nature, individual differences, and unique patterns of other individuals. Research ranges from social, ethnic, and cultural differences, leads into analyzing, genetic codes, sexual, social, research of cognitive abilities. Methods vary, and some experiments collect the data from laboratories although other field studies and other techniques are as important to collect proper reliable information to ensure the studies are reliable (Brody, 1997). During the development of Personality Psychology, Jung’s approach to personality was influential. However, his persuasion is no longer as influential any longer. Although a few foundations around the world are still dedicated to critical psychology. Presently, most research that relates to Jung is on his imagery of personality types. “ The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI; Myers, 1962) is the most frequently used measure of Jung’s personality types and is often used by school counselors to direct students toward rewarding avenues of study” (Feist, 2009, chap. 4 , p. 129, para. 3). Then again, recently, researchers have extended their work on the effectiveness of Jungian personality types by searching for the natural resources in the way people manage their personal finances and types of careers they pursue.<br />Carl Jung<br />Carl Jung’s view is there were two main functions that humans had no choice in doing one is to learn or take in and perceive information. The second is how we use the information we learn is the way we make decisions on what we have learned, Jung<br />of Dreams, Freud "virtually cut off from the outside world.” (Pieces of the Mind, in Conflict, 29, 2004) Freud’s’ colleagues, decided he was immature sexuality, and decided he was unusual at best, and misrepresent at worst.

The second is how we use the information we learn is the way we make decisions on what we have learned, Jung<br />believed a person could perceive information through our senses, or our intuition. He also believed a person could make decisions based on logic, or subjective feelings. Jung believed that all four senses were important for every individual to function. However, he understood that each person did not achieve the same quality and amount of success. Jung also assumed that a person could recognize and organize his or her own preference for the functions within each individual daily life. Functions frequently used his or her "dominant" function. The dominant function is stable and supporting the second function supporting person. The third functioning individual is in Jung’s view is inferior. This is Carl Jung’s view on the human personality functions (Consulting Psychologists Press, 2010).<br /> Most people who set goals for his or herself are the people who seem to become the most successful in life. Attributing a particular goal will drive a person to the destiny he or she wants most in life. However, no matter the problem, delays, or risks, he or she has a drive required to fulfill the goal he or she set whether it was on a conscious or unconscious level. People have an ability for his or her-own self-awareness. However, often that capacity remains uncultivated and frequently people lack the nerve to face their fate whether it is good or evil within the culture or within them if they do not use all his or her total potential. Consciousness and the power of choice or free will and do interconnect (Feist, 2009).<br />Alfred Adler had philosophical theorists followers like Harry Stack Sullivan, Karen Horney, Julian Abraham H. Maslow, and other lesser and known theorists than Freud or Jung. Adler was known for at least three of his ideas. Adler had few followers to help with his organization to carry on his theories his writing skills were poor. In fact, the books published were scattered lecture notes that his editors who followed him pieced together to put into books form. Alder  did have  a few theorists like Maslow, Rogers, and Ellis, who followed him. However, soon many did not want to be associated with Adler’s name. Nonetheless, Adler exposed vast insight into the complexities and depth of the human personality Adler’s simple and economical theory was that people are born, weak, inferior, and with bodies at which led to having “feelings of inferiority and a consequent dependence on other<br />people. Therefore, a feeling of unity with others social interests is inherent in people and the ultimate standard for psychological health” (Feist, 2009, p. 69).<br />Conclusion<br />The conscious and unconscious mind was a mystery, and in many ways can still be. However, after looking at Freud’s, Carl Jung’s and Alfred Adler it shows the various attempts to understand the human mind and how each man chose to approach his experimentation and each contributed in his own way to learn how the mind works, and how a person’s personality is shaped. Freud is the one who began to understand the workings of the brain, Alder seemed to be on a different frame of mind than most people in the field, and Jung has impressed the current psychologists and others in the way a person’s personality comes to be. Of course, only a few have been discusses and there are many more with valuable input on the human personality, and many are very famous for his or her work in the field. Once again,  an important question of an individual’s difference is if people are more alike to his or herself over time because of situations he or she go through over time, and the deviation from an individual begins to change over time.<br />Brody, N. &.
