According to Freud, the id, ego, and superego are three components of the human psyche that constantly interact and can create conflicts.

      Latency

    C. Phallic
    Explanation
    Freud's psychosexual theory suggests that during the phallic stage of development, children develop unconscious sexual desires for the parent of the opposite sex. This stage occurs between the ages of 3 and 6 years old, and it is characterized by the Oedipus complex in boys and the Electra complex in girls. During this stage, children may experience feelings of attraction towards their opposite-sex parent and rivalry or jealousy towards their same-sex parent. It is during this stage that children also start to identify with their same-sex parent and internalize their gender roles and values.

This allows individuals to avoid confronting distressing or threatening thoughts and emotions, ultimately protecting their psychological well-being.

Therefore, the correct answer is self-serving bias.

It creates a safe and non-threatening environment where individuals can explore and express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences freely, leading to greater self-awareness and self-actualization.

      Humanistic theorists

    Correct Answer
    D. Humanistic theorists
    Explanation
    Humanistic theorists have been criticized the most for encouraging individual selfishness and self-indulgence. This is because humanistic theories, such as Maslow's hierarchy of needs and Carl Rogers' person-centered approach, emphasize self-actualization and personal growth. Critics argue that this focus on individual fulfillment may lead to a disregard for others and a lack of responsibility towards society. Humanistic theorists are often seen as promoting a self-centered perspective that prioritizes personal desires over collective well-being.

      Not easily able to delay gratification of thier personal desires

    Correct Answer
    B. Extremely introvered personality

    People who perceive an internal locus of control are likely to have an extremely introverted personality. This means that they tend to be more inward-focused, preferring solitude and introspection over social interactions. They may feel more comfortable and energized by spending time alone rather than being in large groups or engaging in social activities. This introverted nature could be attributed to their belief that they have control over their own actions and outcomes, leading them to rely less on external validation or social interactions for their sense of self-worth or fulfillment.
