Psychoanalysis Perspective

In this photo, I was angry that the ice cream shop we went to was closed, so naturally, I took this anger out on my mom by being sassy towards her. I am exemplifying Freud's Displacement defense mechanism. My parents thought my attitude towards the situation was funny, but clearly I was not pleased.
On this day in pre-school, I was surprised that the boys got to eat snack first and the girls had to play with toys while waiting for them to finish. I was hungry and I didn't want to wait! If I had known about Freud's theories on Personality Development back then, I'm sure I would've agreed on the criticisms that state that he had men in mind, and women were an afterthought- because it sure felt like we were an afterthought in this situation!
