Freud was the original proposer of the idea of a subconscious and an unconscious mind. According to him, human behaviors, motives, and actions were all guided by what lies in his subconscious and more importantly, his unconscious.
There were some succeeding psychologists who tool fragments of his theory and worked on them, but there were also a couple of them who completely disregarded his theories. Freud didn’t care about what these psychologists believed, he still continues to awe-struck people with his ideas.
There’s just too many questions such as what guides our behavior, the reason why we think the way we think, what lies under all the conscious thoughts? Where do random thoughts come from if we aren’t aware of them at first?
As Freud firmly believed in his theories, they resulted in testing methods which still continue to be famous amongst the masses.
