Psychoanalytic the ability to find satisfactions within the approved

Psychoanalytic
theory, developed by Sigmund Freud, is essentially a theory of personality
developed as a part of a form of psychotherapy. Despite its strictly clinical
and individual origins, this approach has been one of the most comprehensive
and encompassing in contemporary thinking, extending its influence beyond
psychology to other social sciences and various areas of culture and the arts.
Not always the individual conforms to the social tradition, but can rebel
against it. This can be due to many factors, but two are of particular
importance: the severity of the prohibitions imposed by society on the
individual, and the weakness of the ego and superego. The tendency to rebel
increases if social prohibitions are excessive, if the person does not have the
ability to find satisfactions within the approved social framework (ego
weakness), or if the social tradition has not been sufficiently internalized
due to a failure of identification (weakness of the superego). In the case of
Michael Jackson, he had an extremely difficult relationship with his father,
Joe; his father, recognized in 2003 that he periodically beat up Michael
Jackson as a child. Even Michael Jackson confessed that he was abused
physically and emotionally during the incessant rehearsals to which he was
subjected by his father “Joe.” His abuse had consequences. Michael had
various episodes in his life were he would cry from loneliness and even sometimes
vomit after seeing his father. From the abuse he received as a child from his
father, the only scape he had from his reality was to look for comfort. When Michael
got older, maybe to stop his loneliness and to try to create and finally live
the childhood he never had, he would regularly invite children over to his hose
theme park-like Neverland Ranch to lower his stress. Confirming that the id
operates in “according to the demands of the pleasure principle in order
to satisfy pleasure and reduce inner tension.” Moreover, this
“innocent” act brought a lot of problems into Michael’s life more than once, and
those times he was accused of sexual abuse of a child he invited to his house.
The trial ended with Michael not being guilty and not a pedophile, but was
declared a “regressed 10-year-old”. Michael felt the pressure and
internalized societal rules of the superego, it had an impact on his sexually
deviant actions. Freud may argue that Michael had a strong ego because his
personal victimization allowed him to solve problems logically as defined in
the reality principle. As a result, he committed in behaviors that increased
inner tension relating with the abuse he had as a child.
