Abstract: The purpose of this research is to know about Michael Foster’s characteristics and his personality problem using the concept of Personality Structure by Sigmund Freud. The writer uses descriptive qualitative method to analyze the problem. The data are collected from the scenes, the dialogues, and the appearances of Michael Foster and analyzed using psychoanalysis theory. From the analysis of this movie, the writer finds the characteristics of Foster who reveals who he is. Foster has a personality problem which is started by the absence of parents in his oral stage. This condition causes the unstable personality, but the presence of his sister can maintain Foster’s unstable personality. Later, it is aggravated by the death of her where it leaves a deep impact on Foster and has an influence in his present. The fact that his sister died many years ago puts Foster in difficult situation to show his love and express his missing. So, he looks for the girl who has the similarities with his sister to displace her. Foster’s personality structure (id, ego, and superego) cannot work balanced. Those feelings become Foster’s dominant id and take control of Foster. In fulfilling his id, Foster’s ego uses defense mechanism to reduce the anxiety and avoid the unpleasant feeling, such as repression, displacement and projection. Foster is controlled by his dominant id and his ego guides him on making a decision where his superego, that needs the perfection, cannot supervises Foster’s ego. The id is too dominant to take control of Foster.
