Edmund Bergler, Long-Forgotten Psychoanalyst
posted in Psychology by admin
Edmund Bergler was an American Psychoanalyst
from the 20th century, whose work was based off of
Freudian psychoanlysis. A lot of his published work is
based on the unconscious and how it dictates our
actions. How does this relate to money issues? Well,
according to Bergler, our unconscious wishes for us to
suffer. The psychological neurotic is preconditioned
through years and years of bad habits to suffer instead
of working his or her way out of the bad situation.
Sounds a bit kooky, doesn’t it? But I swear that it
makes sense. Bergler wrote about basically every type
of psychological problem that exists: weight troubles,
financial woes, divorce, the lack of laughter in one’s
life, even creativity and productivity.
Sadly, Bergler’s kind of forgotten. Why, though, when his work makes so much sense?
I’m going to attempt to shed some light on Bergler, along with my own financial goals, through this
blog. Many of his books are out-of-print. My hope in giving him a spotlight here on this little stage
is to drum up at least a little interest in him so that his work is not forgotten. Trust me, it’s actually
really useful.
To that end, I’ll start by offering the ten rules for combating not-too-severe cases of tension (aka
anxiety). These are found in Tensions Can Be Reduced to Nuisances

Understand that your “inexplicable depressions” and “lousy moods” are no more than alibis presented to your inner conscience. 7.” His language may be a little old-fashioned but his ideas are not.
