There are not many similarities between psychoanalytic theory and behaviorist theory. Psychoanalytic theory is based on the unconscious and conscious thoughts of a person where as Behaviorism is based on the behavior of an individual without taking into account any thoughts or cognitions of the individual. The only similarity that I see is that they are both theories to explain human behavior - one looking at thoughts and one completely ignoring thoughts. more
