The 4 Psychologists and their theories Explained:
Freud- Freud explains that the psychosocial stages are actually psychosexual stages. Each stage represents a different sex drive on different parts of the body. As a person grows physically some areas of their body become important as sources of pleasure or frustration. Freud believed that life was built around tension and pleasure, and he believed that tension was due to the build up of "sexual energy " and pleasure came from its discharge.
Kohlberg- Kohlberg believed that life was built upon moral dilemmas. He believed that our moral values start at an early age as children must obey their parents and if they don't then they will be punished knowing they did wrong. As the child grows older they see their morals grow as they observe peoples' viewpoints other than their parents. Also as they grow up they start to learn more about the universal moral and base theirs off these set of principles.
Piaget- The Piaget stages of development are a blueprint that describes the intellectual growth from infantry through adulthood. As a child how we learn is through experimentation and observation. Between 7 and 9 months we begin to speak and through 18 months we begin to walk. As we grow older or brain becomes more complex and we start to be able to do complex math. Also our brains start to develop a drive for intimacy.
Erikson- According to Erikson, the ego develops as it successfully resolves crises that are distinctly social in nature. These involve establishing a sense of trust in others, developing a sense of identity in society, and helping the next generation prepare for the future. Erik son explains that throughout life we have drives for intimacy and we also have confusion on where we are meant to be in society.

Personality Results Summary-
Myers- Briggs- My strengths are that I am extremely upbeat and good with communications. I am always looking to improve relationships and although I am good at making money, I am not so good at managing it. I am able to sympathize well with others, although if we don't see eye to eye my love for debate could spark up arguments that could end up being taken personally. I am very flexible when it comes to doing new things and I always like new adventures.I am very committed to relationships and taking on new ideas with the significant other. If that relationship ends I am able to continue living my life the way it was when I was in the relationship. Some of my weaknesses are that sometimes I am not able to follow up on ideas because something else that is more interesting may be taking my attention away from the original idea. Another thing that could be good but most likely is bad is that I'm a big risk taker which means I could lose everything at once. Although I am very committed to my relationships and always looking for growth, if I see something that interests me more then I will end the relationship.
Big Five- After taking the tests my results show up as this: After scoring low on the O means that I am down to earth and have narrow interests and on the uncreative side. On the conscientiousness test it shows that I am neither on the organized or disorganized side. (Although I know Im on the more disorganized side). It also shows that I am relatively social and enjoy thecompany of other people. This connects with the other personality test as the other test says that I am extroverted as well. My agreeableness test shows that I tend to consider the feelings of others, along with this I am sympathetic, forgiving, and courteous. My most one sided test was the neuroticism test as it says that I remain calm in tense situations, which connects with my Johari window and my other tests that say I am a laid back person.
