For those of you wondering what the heck I'm talking about, the Id (i.e., Devil) reflects our desire to please ourselves with immediate satisfaction (i.e., eating fast food), whereas the Superego (i.e., Angel) reflects our desire to live according to a set of morals (i.e., living a "green" lifestyle).
Freud argued that the Id and Superego are two opposing psychological forces. To mediate this conflict, Freud suggested we have an Ego (i.e., the self) to ensure that both the Id and Superego's goals are met.
Oh dear, I can't believe I just posted a blog about Freud's structural theory of psychodynamics!! Meghan, I hope this puts a little smile on your face!! I suspect Experimentaholic will not appreciate this posting!!
