Presuming you are majoring in psychology or are into psychology.. whose theory or ideas do you like the best? I,myself, like Carl Rogers. He took the old stoic way of psychology and counseling and gave it a warm approach which he called "client centered approach" He also was the first theorist to stop calling people who needed therapy patients. He insisted they be called "clients" Rogers was against the idea of a theoripist prancing around with a high and mighty, do what I tell you attitude. Insisted that therapists get off their thrones and get into the feelings of their clients by sitting side by side with them and empathizing with them. you can read more about Carl Rogers here:

Carl Roger is revolutionary in exposing his person oriented treatment. He was positive about people and believed that they are capable of solving their problems and modifying their behavior bet placing them in right conditions. He bewlieved much in communication with the clients by creating in them confidence. He believed in people that they are good , deserve to be trusted and they can be mentally sound. He said that love is the driving force of human energy. It is an accepted fact that every human being in the depth of his heart seeks recognition, acceptance approval, mutual or reciprocal love which inte3grates a personality more positively.

I like Freud for his positive approach in accepting the people as they are and daring to place their trust in them. During my Teachers' Training for middle school and Bachulor of Education for Highschool children I have studied Freud Probel Rogers Erikson Maslo and many others. During my educational career I have tried to apply Rogers theory that is daring to place trust even in weaker section of students and obtaining positive results.

Never really cared too much for the various theories. However I did understand the teachings about “conditioning”; Pavlov's dogs experiments.
Pavlov and his studies of classical conditioning have become famous since his early work between 1890-1930. Classical conditioning is classical in that it is the first systematic study of basic laws of learning
