I agree with Amberlie Byloff on the assertion that there are accidents in that Freudian slips are valid to some extent. It is true at some point one finds himself or herself affected by the Freudian slips. I also agree with Byloff that, the Freudian slips do not depict the wholeness of internal state of the unconscious part of the mind. I tend to believe that the Freudian slips come out as a result of something that one is thinking about but does not want it to come out expressly or at that time. For example, when one male is being served tea by a fair lady, if asked, “Do you want butter and bread or a cake? He may respond “butter and bed.” Bed here may indicate the sexual desires that the man does not want to reveal, but accidentally does. It is thus evident that the Freudian slips are circumstantial, and at times my just be forgetting to pay attention of one’s active thinking.
I agree with Byloff on self-psychology as an interesting field. Jamie McLean (2007) for treatment of narcissistic patients, as Kohut suggests, one has to experience the world from the patient’s “view Point.” Dou you think this is possible?

Kathie Burnette claims that all behavior is not determined without accidents and that people are generally extreme and diverse. One wonders whether it is diversity that creates “accidents” or the differences in the way one was brought up. It is evident that this may not be case as the human brain operates in the way and hence, the “accidents” are universal. It is not all unconscious thoughts come to be verbalized as Burnette claims. It is only a few that accidently come out.
Todd claims that “The goal of Kohuts therapy is the development of a cohesive self that has the realistic ambitions and goals, is able to be creative, intimate, and flexible and is able to make its own judgments and maintain its own sense of self- esteem.” Can one develop self-assessment that is devoid of biases?
