Subject: Sibling Rivalry
April 10th is celebrated as 'world sibling day,' which brought my attention back to one very interesting topic 'Sibling Rivalry.' Wikipedia article on Sibling Rivalry is quite intriguing. Sigmund Freud has associated sibling rivalry(like many other things) with Oedipus Complex, do you think that it's a possibility and what about effects of Sibling Rivalry, do you think that it's helpful in upbringing of children or it's a hindrance?

No. Freud was damaged goods and he perceived the world through his disfunction.

What according to you was Freud's dysfunction, and what made you reach to the conclusion that he was dysfunctional? It's not that I am a great fan of Freud, but just curious! nod

One of Freud's problems was that he was preoccupied with sex and tried to intrepret everything in relation to it, mostly that all actions were controlled by sexual drives.

I think that might be the only problem of Freud, and I am not even sure if that was a problem. I prefer Jung and Eysenck over Freud, but as a matter of fact it was Freud who popularized Psychology the most. It doesn't mean that I am in favor of popularity at the expense Truth, but yes, if more people are attracted towards a subject and start exploring it, there are chances of getting more closer to Truth. Yes, it's a speculation of mine. Freud is one of the most read authors of all times over here, in India.
