Examples of latency in the following topics:
- According to Freud, children’s pleasure-seeking urges (governed by the id) are focused on a different area of the body, called an erogenous zone, at each of the five stages of development: oral, anal, phallic, latency, and genital.
- Latency (6-12 years of age): During this stage, sexual instincts subside, and children begin to further develop the superego, or conscience.
- The strengthening effect on the behavior can manifest in multiple ways, including higher frequency, longer duration, greater magnitude, and short latency of response.
- Freud’s psychosexual model of development includes five stages: oral, anal, phallic, latency, and genital.
- Specifically, he maintained that these conflicts progress through a series of five basic stages, each with a different focus: oral, anal, phallic, latency, and genital.
