Get This Look: Psychologists

1. Sigmund Freud

The father of psychoanalysis, Freud has fans and detractors of the “a cigar is just a cigar” variety. It’s thanks to him that we all glibly refer to our Ids, Egos, and Super-Egos. (Sadly, we have not yet developed the Super-Eggo, a kind of waffle I have often imagined that would be the size of a whole pizza. Thanks for nothing, Freud.)

2.) Carl Jung

Carl Jung was a party animal who introduced a school of psychology dependent upon archetypes and the collective unconscious. This means that while Freud was kind of into dreams, Jung was more into questions like, “and what do you think the waterfall means? That shadowy figure represents sex!” Jung thought Freud’s take on the human mind was repressed and overly negative. Jung was all, “your mind is a lake,” and I was all, “Tell me more, Jung.”

3.) Mary Ainsworth

Mary Ainsworth’s work—particularly on attachment theory—has influenced educators and those working in the field of child development, with far reaching effects. She contributed to attachment theory with her “strange situation” theory, in which she left some babies alone in a room and then had their parents return to the room to comfort them. We all judge babies, Ainsworth was just the first to admit it.
