Psychosexual Stages Match Game

Here's a quick way to brush up on your Freud. First, close your eyes and name Freud's stages of psychosexual development (hint: there are five of them). Then scroll down.

Here they are, out of order:


Next, two steps: Match the stages above with the definition fragments below (from Simply Psychology). Then put them in proper order.

__________. In this stage, the child becomes aware of anatomical sex differences, which sets in motion the conflict between erotic attraction, resentment, rivalry, jealousy and fear which Freud called the Oedipus complex (in boys) and the Electra complex (in girls).

__________.  A time of adolescent sexual experimentation, the successful resolution of which is settling down in a loving one-to-one relationship with another person in our 20's.

__________.  The libido is dormant.  Freud thought that most sexual impulses are repressed during this stage and sexual energy can be sublimated.

__________.  In this stage, conflict tends to come to a head in potty training, in which adults impose restrictions on when and where the child can defecate.  The nature of this first conflict with authority can determine the child's future relationship with all forms of authority. 

__________.  Freud said ________ stimulation could lead to an ________ fixation in later life.  We see ________ personalities all around us such as smokers, nail-biters, finger-chewers, and thumb suckers.  ________ personalities engage in such ________ behaviors, particularly when under stress. (Same word for every blank.)

All done? Check your work on Simply Psychology or Wikipedia.

Happy prepping and good luck with the exam!
