Having sifted through some of my library it turns out I was mistaken - turns out I was thinking of some Jungian presentations and the Freud ones I have encountered I cannot share, I'm afraid.

It was my pleasure. If anyone enjoys the presentation they are welcome to use it.

Yeah - That is really nice - Thanks Waters.

And that was your own work as well? Respect!

That is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for.

I should have thought of that myself - 'going Freudian' in a drawing dup, especially as a couple of years ago a friend asked me to provide some notes on the psychological research of drawing duplications and some of the product may have been relevant to this thread. Mind like a sieve!

But I don't think I could have done it in such a fabulous way.

Thanks again.

Alright - here's one for you.

Young guy goes into Freud’s liquor store. The man behind the counter asks to see his id.

Well, to be honest, I cannot claim credit for the above gag, alas. Here's another I found on Her Majesty's internet, but I like it less, coz it's less like Bruce Lee's techniques - i.e. it's not fast and punchy.


Mr. Perkins, the biology instructor at a posh suburban girls' junior college, said during class, "Miss Smythe, would you please name the organ of the human body which, under the appropriate conditions, expands to six times its normal size, and define the conditions."

Miss Smythe responds.

Miss Smythe gasped, then said freezingly, "Mr. Perkins, I do not think that is a proper question to ask me. I assure you my parents will hear of this." With that she sat down, red-faced.

Unperturbed, Mr. Perkins called on Miss Johnson and asked the same question.

Miss Johnson, with composure, replied, "The pupil of the eye, in dim light."

"Correct," said Mr. Perkins. "And now, Miss Smythe, I have three things to say to you. One, you have not studied your biology. Two, you have a dirty mind. And three, you will someday be faced with a dreadful disappointment."



Please do not encourage me to start telling jokes as I'll be up all night, and we'll go off thread.

It is supposed to be about Freudian slips, in case it seems I've suddenly gone off on a tangent.

I do like that one also.

Thanks I was in a rather dark mood and am smiling as I type Olly.

It was fun while it lasted but we're here to work, right?

I should think that a few of Freud's defense mechanisms could be "mentalized." I want to think about this for awhile.

Just read through the gag.

Looks like I slightly mis-told it.

Post-Jungian slip?

Yeah ... or some such ...

I looked through your thread, Thomas, on Fairy Tales and found it became hard to follow quite quickly ...

http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=161

I couldn't follow all the references ... maybe I missed some important link or something.

But it also got me thinking about the power of the symbolic, and reminded me of another reason why I love the psychodynamic perspective so much. The power of fantasy and imagination - it reaches parts of the brain that other beers cannot reach (to quote a well-known sales slogan in my country). Crucial part of psychology and what makes us human.

This is something that could be woven into our mentalism with ease. It's just doing it in a clearly Freudian (or post-Jungian!) way that might be a tad more tricky.

I'd be interested to read your Masters dissertation, if you'd care to PM it to me, although I may take a little while to get through it. If you'd rather not, no problems.

But also, as I'm none the wiser as to what post-Jungian analytical psychology (right?) is all about, would you please type up a few lines just to give a brief outline ...

I think others who have contributed to this thread would also be grateful to you if you made this effort.


I think you are right that a lot of Freudian defence mechanisms could be woven into our presentations. I would like to see a routine that demonstrates confabulation or rationalisation, if such a thing were possible.

Ultimately, people have to interpret what we do when we perform - even if their interpretations don't obviously seem to involve defensive manoevures. So us mentalists see confabulations and rationalisations whenever we perform. If only we could hold up a mirror and show it back to our spectators!

I errored when I said Jung's Tower was on a river...it's on a lake...my own post-Jungian slip.

What is a Freudian slip anyway?

Isn't it where you do one thing, but mean to do your mother....

Jung puppet loved it but Freud puppet didn't get it.

Projection, anyone? Some sublimation, perhaps?
