The Gods are beings of which Greek mythology speaks a lot due to
their intervention in history, each one is well known to fulfill a
specific role and thanks to this they are known, but in this case we
will talk about 9 gods and their complexes of each of them.
In Greek mythology, Elektra, is a character known for her role in the
tragic story of the House of Atreus. Elektra was the daughter of
King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra.
The Electra complex is a term coined by the psychoanalyst Carl
Jung, it is considered the female counterpart to the Oedipus
complex. The complex is characterized by a daughter's
unconscious attraction and attachment to her father and rivalry with
her mother
In Greek mythology, Hephaestus was the god of fire, blacksmiths,
craftsmen, and artisans. As for his complex, Hephaestus is not
typically associated with a specific psychological complex in the
same way as figures like Oedipus or Narcissus. However, his
physical disability and the challenges he faced as a result of it can
be seen as a source of potential psychological complexity.
While there is no specific psychological complex associated with
Hephaestus in mythology, his story can serve as a reflection of the
resilience and triumph of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
Hera, in Greek mythology, is the queen of the gods and the
goddess of marriage, women, and childbirth. She is the sister and
wife of Zeus, the king of the gods. Hera is often portrayed as a
powerful and influential figure, but her complex can be explored in
terms of her relationship with Zeus and her role as the goddess of
Hera's complex is a term used to describe a pattern of behavior in
which a woman displays jealousy, possessiveness, and a strong
desire for fidelity in her romantic relationships. The Hera complex
can be seen as a manifestation of the fear of betrayal and the
desire for monogamy and loyalty in a romantic relationship
In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a young hunter renowned for
his exceptional beauty. He was the son of the river god Cephissus
and the nymph Liriope. Narcissus was known for his arrogance and
disdain towards those who loved him.
The story of Narcissus serves as a cautionary tale about excessive
self-love, vanity, and the destructive nature of ego. It has become a
symbol of someone who is obsessed with their own appearance or
self-importance. The term "narcissism" is derived from Narcissus
and is used to describe an excessive preoccupation with oneself.
Cronos, also known as Cronus or Kronos, is a figure from Greek
mythology. He was one of the Titans, a group of powerful deities
who ruled the cosmos before the Olympian gods came into power.
Cronos was the son of Uranus (the sky) and Gaia (the earth) and
was married to his sister, Rhea.
Cronos' complex, often referred to as the Cronos complex, is a
term used in psychology to describe the idea of a son's
unconscious desire to overthrow and surpass his father. It draws
inspiration from the mythological story of Cronos and his fear of
being overthrown by his own children.
Ulysses, also known as Odysseus in Greek mythology, was a
legendary hero and the protagonist of Homer's epic poem, the
Odyssey. He was the king of Ithaca and played a significant role in
the Trojan War.
His complex is commonly referred to as the Odysseus complex,
which is derived from his Greek name, Odysseus. The Odysseus
complex is a psychological concept proposed by the psychoanalyst
Carl Jung. It describes a pattern of behavior in which an individual
experiences a longing for adventure and exploration but is
simultaneously held back by a desire for security and familiarity.
