Sigmund Freud is perhaps the most familiar psychologist in history. He created psychoanalytic theory, which is clinical psychology's first self-conscious school of thought. Freud created the theory of the unconscious mind, and he introduced the ideas of the subconscious, defense mechanisms, repression and penis envy into the popular culture.
