two to three paragraphs about Sigmund Freud’s theory was right or wrong


Sigmund Freud suggested that sexual motivation underlies personality. According to Freudian theory, psychiatric symptoms are explained in psychodynamic terms, instead of in biological terms. Biological drives, in particular sexual motivation, provide the basis of personality. Hereditary differences may influence levels of sexual drive (libido) and phenomena such as homosexuality.
