Supporters of Sigmund Freud attack Alfred Adler and his followers at a meeting of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society, causing Adler to resign his presidency of the organization and eventually start his own group.

The principle difference between Adler and Freud is that Adler will reject the Freudian position that sexual feelings and sexual repression are the primary motivations of human behavior.

Instead, Adler insists that feelings of inferiority, mostly on the subconscious level, combined with compensatory defense mechanisms (like overcompensation) become the primary forces behind behavior - especially pathological behavior.
