    4. Sigmund Freud: Freud developed psychoanalytic therapy or psychoanalysis as a way to treat patients. A psychoanalyst works to move unresolved, hidden issues from the unconscious into the conscious. The techniques that a psychoanalyst would utilize to treat a patient are: free association, dream analysis, resistance, transference and interpretation. According to Freud, these unresolved issues usually were introduced into the psyche during childhood. Once the patient realizes their issues stem from experiences that no longer exist they will cease to be burdened by them. Once this insight takes place, the conflict is resolved and the patient can develop healthier or more adaptive behavior patterns.
    Criticisms: Freud's methods were developed with a specific group of people in mind, primarily upper-class Viennese women. Psychoanalysis is both time consuming and expensive and it rarely works for people with severe mental disorders.

    Interesting Facts
    Fact #1
    Researchers have created a way to evaluate those considered “creative” and separate those who are considered “non-creative” by mainly taking a look at how they investigate a particular problem, what cognitive processes they use to solve it, and which information they deem useful to store. Through Sternberg and Lubart’s investment theory, the “buy low and sell high” concept is also applied to creative people. They take their high potential ideas that most feel are worthless and wait until they are highly valued and supported so that they will eventually “sell high”. This theory also states that in the minds of “creative” people, six different “but interrelated resources are coming together”: intellectual ability, knowledge, thinking style, personality, motivation, and environment (Huffman 298).
