Intrapsychic System

Superego– Social Moral, Ego – Intellectual, and Id – Biological

Topography of the mind

Conscious, Preconscious, and Unconscious

SuperEgo: the third structure of the personality to develop; acquired by means of the process of learning; represents the internalization of society’s values and standards; it’s Ego Ideal rewards appropriate behavior and it’s conscience punishes inappropriate or unacceptable behaviors; operates on the basis of the perfection (morality) principle.

Ego: the second structure of the personality to develop; represents rational thought, memory, etc.; attempts to conform to the Id’s mental images to objective reality; operates on the basis of the Reality principle by means of secondary process.

ID: the oldest structure of the personality; innate and physiologically based; provides the psychic energy for all three parts of the system; knows only the inner world of subjective experiences; operates on the basis of the Pleasure Principle by means of reflex action and/or primary process.
