    I'm a psychology major that'll be going for my doctorate next year. Not sure what kind of information you're looking for...

    Not sure if this is what you are hunting for, but then again everything can be considered "Freudian"

    WARNING - READING THIS MAY CAUSE YOU TO RETHINK YOUR LIFE DECISIONS

    Or if you're like me, you'll take it with a grain of salt


    Freud
    Freud:
    Oral Stage (Birth to 18 months). During the oral stage, the child if focused on oral pleasures (sucking). Too much or too little gratification can result in an Oral Fixation or Oral Personality which is evidenced by a preoccupation with oral activities. This type of personality may have a stronger tendency to smoke, drink alcohol, over eat, or bite his or her nails. Personality wise, these individuals may become overly dependent upon others, gullible, and perpetual followers. On the other hand, they may also fight these urges and develop pessimism and aggression toward others.

    Ha ha, touche my good man. I don't know if there is actual proof that he "qouted it" but i'm sure he said it one way or another. After all, he was indeed a cigar lover as well.

    Made it halfway through The Freud Reader by Peter Gay for a psyche class in high school (decided that I wanted to get a head start on the class, that was a bad life decision to say the least) and I'm never picking that crap up again. If I never hear about the Rat Man ever again, it'll be too soon.

    Freud is no longer considered relevant in terms of his literal doctrine. There is probably no such thing as Freudian Psychologist anymore, since his ideas are all based on only the sick people he saw (he never formed any theories based on healthy people.) He also used no empirical data, and his theories were developed without any way to test them. He needs to be respected for inventing psychology. Also, he was rocking the ganja pretty hard.
