22. Freud Believed Aggression Originated in the Id
He claimed that the id was the pleasure-seeking yet subconscious aspect of human personality, the most animalistic part that is fully present at birth. It explains why toddlers can throw violent temper tantrums when they don’t get their way. The id is another thing that Freud got severely wrong, but he was right about one thing: humans will go to any lengths to seek pleasure and avoid pain.
