  7. 7. According to Freud, anxiety is an unpleasant inner state that people seek to avoid. Anxiety acts as a signal to the ego that things are not going right. Frued identified three types of anxiety: • Neurotic anxiety is the unconscious worry that we will lose control of the id's urges, resulting in punishment for inappropriate behaviour. • Reality anxiety is fear of real-world events. The cause of this anxiety is usually easily identified. For example, a person might fear receiving a dog bite when they are near a menacing dog. The most common way of reducing this anxiety is to avoid the threatening object. • Moral anxiety involves a fear of violating our own moral principles.
