Freud on Children

“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”
~Sigmund Freud


I guess Mr. Freud would have found me more interesting as a child then?
Come to think of it....

I don't know... but as time passes I feel less and less that SF was really all that insightful. Seems to me that his insights into the human psyche were awfully culturally bound. I like this quotation though. Children do have radiance.

I think I'd prefer analyze your quote, Dan.
I do have a respect for his accomplishments. There were quite a few.
