Which is the dominant side of personality?
Are you a person who gets carried away with anything which catches your attention? If you want something, then you want it by hook or crook? No matter what, but you need to satisfy your needs immediately. Then you are a person driven by ID.
An individual with an extremely dominant id, for example, might become impulsive, uncontrollable, or even criminal. This individual acts upon his or her most basic urges with no concern for whether the behavior is appropriate, acceptable, or legal.
Id is said to be the matrix ground for the other two parts of personality . It works on immediate gratification of needs. The stubborn child within all of us.
Are you a person who thinks and act? Who although believes in satisfying his needs, but in a just way? Who understands that people have needs and desires and that sometimes being impulsive or selfish can hurt us in the long run! Then you are driven by EGO
An excessively dominant ego can also result in problems. An individual with this type of personality might be so tied to reality, rules, and appropriateness that they are unable to engage in any type of spontaneous or unexpected behavior. This individual may seem very concrete and rigid, incapable of accepting change and lacking an internal sense of right from wrong.
It’s the ego’s job to meet the needs of the id while taking into consideration the reality of the situation.Ego operates as a medium of balance between id and superego. It works on the principle of reality.
Are you a person who has a strong sense of moral and ethical restraints placed on you by your caregivers? Whose thoughts always dictates his belief of right and wrong? Always working with his conscience? Then you have a strong SUPEREGO
An overly dominant superego, on the other hand, might lead to a personality that is extremely moralistic and possibly judgmental. This person may be very unable to accept anything or anyone that he or she perceives as “bad” or “immoral.”
Superego is the part which holds the moral values, which a person learned from family and society. Which may sometimes lead to feelings of guilt and other time to proud because of the conflict with ID.
A person who is emotionally and psychologically healthy has a balance between the three aspects of personality.
So which part of the personality drives you?
