I was hoping someone might have previously done the essay "Discuss the ability of Freud’s Theory to explain personality." and would be able to upload it here so I know what sort of thing I'm aiming for. This is my first uni essay set and I'm not quite sure how to go about answering the title, particularly in regard to relevant references. Obviously I do not intend to copy anything due to plagerism checks.
Please help!

Just discuss Freud's theory in terms of stuff like methodology, implications, ethics etc.
Then explain a bit about personality theory, perhaps evaluate personality theory with conflicting ideas and again methodology (psychometrics and statistical analysis)
Then explain Freud's application of his theory (which you would have previously evaluated) to personality*
Give alternative views of personality explanations and how they overcome Freud's shortcomings*
***
I would recommend reading around, not just textbooks but journal articles examining all the above. I find scopus is a good database resource for psych and quite easy to use and navigate. Just put in 'Freud and personality' for example, of 'Freud critique'. I would also sort by relevance or citation rather than the default date
