Alfred Adler, an early associate of Sigmund Freud, dies in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The primary difference between Adler and Freud is that Adler rejected the idea that sexual feelings and sexual repression are primary motivations of human behavior. Adler argued instead that feelings of inferiority, mostly subconscious, combined with compensatory defense mechanisms (such as overcompensation) are the primary forces behind behavior — especially behavior of the pathological sort.
