Exam 3 Essay

2227 words - 9 pages

Before I get started I just want to note that this paper made me realize how far I have developed from my childhood and even the beginning of high school. With that said I’m going to describe my own progression through the psychosexual stages of development.
The first stage is the oral stage, which begins when you’re born to 18 months. This has to do with the infants’ pleasure centers on the mouth. Things such as chewing, sucking, and biting are the sources of pleasure that reduce tension in the infant. Since I wasn’t able to remember this part of my life I asked my parents how I was during this age. According to my parents I wasn’t difficult when it came to weaning from breastfeeding to a bottle. I believe the reason behind this is when I was in the hospital I didn’t want to latch on to my mother and breastfeed. So, the nurse gave me a bottle. The interesting thing about this is none of my other siblings did this; my younger brother Adam was the opposite of me. He wanted to breast feed till he was one and a half. Also, when I was younger I wasn’t a biter so that wasn’t a problem. I think I’m fixated in this stage because when I would cry as a baby my mom would automatically give me a bottle. I was the first child so my mother thought if I cry I’m hungry. The other reason I think I’m fixated in the oral stage is because when I’m playing a sport or in class I like to have gum or sunflower seeds in my mouth. Personally, it makes me feel calm and relaxed. With that being said I think I’m over indulged that’s why having something to chew on is calming. When something is given to you many times it becomes a custom. For me it was if I cry I’m handed a bottle; so the act of being given a bottle made me over indulged in the oral stage.
The second stage of the psychosexual stages is the anal stage. This stage begins from 18 to 36 months. This is a time when most children are experiencing toilet training. The child’s greatest pleasure involves the anus and urethra and their functions. The last time I wet the bed I was five. That is old for someone to still be wetting the bed. I remember that I was afraid of getting up at night when I was younger, so maybe that had something to do with it. It’s really embarrassing to say it, but I’m being honest. After that one incident I never was afraid to get up and go to the bathroom. I was so embarrassed that I never wanted it to happen again.
The third stage is the phallic stage. This stage begins from age three to six. Freud’s third stage comes from the Latin word phallus, which means “penis.” This stage deals with overcoming the Oedipus complex by identifying with the same-sex parent. The Oedipus complex is the boy’s intense desire to replace his father and enjoy the affections of his mother. This stage took me some time to remember when I overcame the Oedipus complex. With some thought I finally got it. First off I will start out by saying this. When I was younger I remember being a mama’s boy for a little...
