An id is a pleasure that needs to be satisfied. In this case, Cholly’s id are to achieve manhood by having an intercourse. Since Cholly has no parents, no one teaches him what is good or bad. He has no idea about the moral of society or what is appropriate in the society. Therefore, he creates an idea of having an intercourse to achieve manhood. Ego has a job to satisfy both id and superego needs in a way that is socially acceptable. However, Cholly does not know what is appropriate since no one teaches him. This causes Cholly to become violent to everyone especially his family. This answers the questions: Why does he burn down the house and put the family outdoor, why does he fight and abuse his family, and why does he rape his own daughter. It is because id, ego, and superego are not balanced well. It causes Cholly to do what he wants without thinking about the social norms or
According to psychologist, Sigmund Freud, there are three main parts that make up a human’s personality: the id, ego, and superego. In the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey, the narrator of the story, Chief Bromden, represents each of these traits. In the beginning, Bromden only thinks of himself as any other crazy man, who no one pays attention to, but throughout the story Bromden develops mentally through all three stages of Freud’s personality analysis, maybe not in Freud’s preferred order, but he still represents them all.
In the last and final phase of the sequence, according to Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality, the Superego is the component of personality composed of our internalized ideals that we have acquired from our parents and from society. The Superego works to suppress the urges of the id, and tries to make the ego behave morally, rather than realistically (Friedman).

The first idea of Freudian psychology in the Lord of the Flies that must be discussed is the
...y towards others. Ego which is developed from the id, is used to satisfy the id is a way that is safe and socially acceptable. The ego operated in both the conscious and unconscious mind. Finally the superego is developed during early childhood and is responsible for making sure that moral standards are followed. The superego can make a person feel a certain level of guilt if rules are not follwed (www.simplypschology.org).
The thought of Freud has a total focus on an individual’s mind and how this internal struggle effects how humans interact within society. Freud argues that every human has three functional parts of their personality that exist within the mind itself: the id, super-ego and the ego. Thurschwell describes these three layers as how they relate to each other. The id is the deepest level of the unconscious, which is dominated by the pleasure principle and has no concept of time except for the present, demanding instant gratification of sexual and aggressive (Eros and Thanatos) urges. The superego originates through identification with the individuals parents, functioning as an internal censor witch represses the dangerous urges of the id. The ego starts as part of the id but is more sensible as it has knowledge of the outside world. Unlike the id, the ego is dominated by the instinct to protect oneself. Although these three layers cannot be physically mapped out in the mind they do show how Freud constantly focused on the internal mind...
Freud's often-controversial psychoanalysis was an attempt to explain the human psyche (mind) which is comprised of three components: the id, ego, and superego; and the conflict between these components shaped personality (Swanson, 1963, p. 14-16). He believed the ego is responsive to the id that developed at infancy. He also believed that defense mechanisms are unconsciously adopted to protect the ego from anxiety. He was convinced that anxiety was used to warn the ego of potential threats. He focused on internally held forces, including conflicts, biological dispositions, and sexual motivation for his theories (Macintyre, 1963, p. 98-99). He sought to address underlying issues in a person's life, and personal cha...
ID and superego can fight so ego is there to control the balance. If the superego takes over a person mind It can lead him to mental illness of feeling guilty at any action he will made because a human cannot superego’s satisfaction, If the Id take over a person will act in an inappropriate way. He believes that a mental healthy person has a strong ego but in the situation when the Id or superego become dominate mental illness person will start to result anxiety to signal ego that it is facing a situation that demand action therefor ego has to make defences mechanisms to avoid the anxiety of unconscious mind and maintain a positive
Deep in the minds of human beings lies a vast ocean of emotions and experiences. The human mind is often misconstrued and simplified by those who possess one, but delving deeper into the mind and it’s processes you see a whole other world that is veiled beneath the surface. One of the most famous examples of the human mind is the image of an iceberg, what is on the surface is so minimal compared to the immense body that lies underneath. Sigmund Freud was the father of psychoanalysis and believed in the idea of the unconscious and subconscious that help power who we are. Through psychoanalysis Freud began to reclaim the self as an individual and stressed the importance of the external world and it’s direct role with the internal realm of an individual. Although it was originally found to be a sort of therapy for those with mental illnesses, it has an interesting and analytical and philosophical view of the self, and through this spawned new beliefs in philosophy. Through the establishment of the id, superego, and ego, and the past’s affect on the shaping the present state of the self, psychoanalysis reclaims the self for an individual and is successful in doing so.

In Sigmund Freud’s “An Outline of Psychoanalysis”, we encounter the id, ego and the superego. Freud explains that our id controls everything “that is inherited, that is present at birth, that is laid down in the constitution” (Freud 14). Our natural instincts are controlled by the id. The fight for survival is driven by the id in our psyche. The ego “preforms by taking control over the demands of the instincts” (Freud 15) it seeks a safe
The next thing that caught my attention was Freud’s structure of personality with “id, ego, and superego”. When I learned about this last year I had a difficult time understanding the role of each part but now after rereading it in this textbook I have a clearer grasp on it. The interesting part of it is how it combines our unconscious and conscious. Freud relates the unconscious with our biological, ancestral urges in the id. He relates the conscious with reality and morals in the ego and superego, respectively. It makes sense because our mind is always conflicting with whether we should give attention to our pleasures or not, still having to think if it is realistic, or socially correct. You see this happening everyday with our decisions in life. An example would be if you are super hungry, and your friend has food right in front of them that they just bought. The id would make you grab the food from in front of your friend and eat it. The ego would tell you that you would be home in 15 minutes and you could eat
In all the psychology of the personality is difficult to understand, because trying to read what someone is thinking about you and your personality is a tough process. This was roughly and explanation into the view of Freud’s view of the id, ego, and superego and some of the psychoanalysis stages that come in the crazy world and studies of Sigmund Freud. Even though his views are not popular today some people still research them and think to themselves he might not be as weird as people told me he was.
The id and superego are on two opposite ends of the spectrum, and they are polar opposite to another, but they each live inside humans. The id is the primal instincts of one’s self it has; it is the
