The list of nominees for this position includes sexual seduction by adults, which Freud abandoned when he realized that his patients had been telling him fantasies and not recollections; the so-called birth-trauma, originally propounded by Otto Rank and accepted for a while with reservations by Freud, which tried to explain the human propensity to anxiety by referring it to a universally experienced shocking event; the discovery of the anatomical differences between the sexes which, it was inferred, led to fear of castration in boys and in girls to the conviction that they had already been castrated; separation from the mother in infancy leading to anxiety derived from the infant's recognition of its own helplessness and separateness; and fear of being overwhelmed by the strength of one's own impulses, this last being of a different order to the others since it refers not to the impact of the outside world on the child but to its sensing a disparity of strength between different parts of itself.
