The term complex , from Latin complexus, allows reference to what It consists of various elements . The complex is called union of two or more things at factory set that are located close to each other and that is under the same technical and financial direction and at set of facilities or buildings that are grouped together to develop a common activity.
A complex, therefore, consists of several units . For example: “I have a reservation in a tourist complex facing the Caribbean Sea”, “The industrial complex of my city continues to grow and already occupies several hectares”, “Luciano's father has a hotel complex in Cancun”.
Complex is also something difficult, entangled, elaborate or complicated : "It's a complex problem, I don't think we can solve it in a few hours", "Amanda is a complex person, you never know what she is thinking", “The evaluation was so complex that only three students managed to pass”.
For the psychology , a complex consists of a set of repressed emotions and ideas and associated with the experiences of the person . These unconscious ideas disturb the subject's behavior and influence their personality . He Oedipus complex and the Electra complex are some examples.
The first case cited, the Oedipus complex, we can say is that which makes a child, in the stage that goes from two to seven years, feel a normal and unconscious rejection towards what is their same-sex parent. Thus, for example, there are children who are attracted to their mother and reject, on the other hand, their father.
That translates into the fact that the aforementioned child is very possessive of his parent, demands constant pampering as well as continuous attention. A fact that will even lead you to enter your parents room without calling with the clear objective of avoiding all kinds of intimacy between them.
A circumstance that which, with the passage of time, will disappear as the child in question is identified with the parent of the same sex.
On the contrary, the aforementioned Electra complex is one that makes the girl feel an emotional attraction to her father. That one is not as palpable as the Oedipus because of the simple circumstance that the little ones have such an emotional relationship with their mothers that they cannot establish such rejection or competitiveness with them so openly.
Between three and seven years is when the aforementioned complex also takes place that often leads the girl in question to even state that she wants to marry her father. However, after that time it will disappear and the girl will begin another phase in which her mother is her role model.
