  • Socialization

    The lifelong process of learning one's culture and of internalizing the norms and behaviors considered appropriate of adults in society.

  • Personality

    An individual's stable behavioral characteristics such as their ingrained ways of thinking, feeling, and acting.

  • Freud's Model of Personality

    Freud argued that personality consisted of three elements: 1) Id - our basic biological impulses; 2) Superego - the internalized cultural norms of society; 3) Ego - the element that balances the id and the superego.

  • Watson's Behaviorism

    The idea that all of our ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving are learned behaviors rather than preprogrammed biological propensities.
