Three Parts of the Mind

Id

The id

The Id

Basic drives (life/sexual and death/aggressive)

  • No sense of fear, morality, or good/evil

  • Only sees the self—no awareness of others

  • The pleasure principle

    • Eros

    • Thanatos

      • Repetition Compulsion


The ego

The Ego

-The mediator between Id and the demands of society

  • Formed by the experience of pain—defends the Id

  • Does not exist to punish the Id—exists to fulfill the Id’s desires in socially acceptable ways

  • The Reality Principle

    -Censors painful feelings from reaching consciousness


The superego

The Superego

The conscience

  • Judges the Id and is responsible for guilt, pride, and satisfaction

  • Represents morality and parental authority
