Let's Connect with Psychoanalytic


        Cisneros uses the theory of psychoanalytic to show the different sides of each character. Some characters were id, ego, and superego. The psychoanalytic theory focuses on a persons mind. There four defense mechanisms are: projection, displacement, fantasy, and suppression. And these defenses keeps a person from facing danger or any harm. Down below are the main basics of Psychoanalytic...


The ID(Kids): Functions in the irrational and emotional part of the mind. Id is basically "I want, I want, I want" . It contains all the basic needs and feelings. The most popular principle of the Id is:I want it and I want it all now”. Id always get what it wants.

The EGO(Adults): The Ego develops out of growing awareness that you can’t always get what you want.  The Ego's job is to get the Id's pleasures but to be reasonable and bear the long-term consequences in mind. Ego is also concern about others and cares if someone gets emotionally hurt.

The SUPEREGO(Pre-Adults):The Superego is the last part of the mind to develop.  The Superego becomes helping out others. Basically, the superego is being concerned about what's best for everyone.
