Default Re: Questions?

Question? Okay I have a question...why all the fixation?


Fixation is the state in which an individual becomes obsessed with an attachment to another person, being or object (in human psychology).

Sigmund Freud theorized that some humans may develop psychological fixation due to:

1. A lack of proper gratification during one of the psycho-sexual stages of development, or
2. Receiving a strong impression from one of these stages, in which case the person's personality would reflect that stage throughout adult life.

Whether a particularly obsessive attachment is a fixation or a defensible expression of love is at times debatable. Fixation to intangibles (i.e., ideas, ideologies, etc.) can also occur.
