Through Lear, Shakespeare expertly portrays the inevitability of human suffering. The “little nothings,” seemingly insignificant choices that Lear makes over the course of the play, inevitably evolve into unstoppable forces that change Lear’s life for the worse. He falls for Goneril’s and Regan’s flattery and his pride turns him away from Cordelia’s unembellished affection. He is constantly advised by Kent and the Fool to avoid such choices, but his stubborn hubris prevents him from seeing the wisdom hidden in the Fool’s words: “Prithee, tell him, so much the rent of his land comes to: he will not believe a fool” (Shakespeare 21). This leads to Lear’s eventual “unburdening,” as foreshadowed in Act I.

He takes this to a personal level because Othello refused the requests of high ups for someone else. Nonetheless, some people may say ego defence mechanisms play a more important role in Iago's life because he justifies all the wrongs he plans to do with a defence mechanism called rationalization. Rationalization is the concurring of wrongs by giving self-serving reasons. Nevertheless, Iago feels a lack of security of his job and cares for nothing else at that moment but getting what he believes should be back. This is just like being sick: one does not care about anything but getting well.
Despair & Disgust touched on the characteristics of ego integrity/ relativity of life (lecture). And ends with despair, regret, mortality and fear. As far as which theorist makes most sense to me... I would go with Freud. Although Erikson has more than exceptional point of views, I feel like Freud makes most sense to me because of relevance in all the sexual connotations that he lists.
Unintentionally, Isabella ignites a sexual flame inside Lord Angelo which grew with almost every word she said "I come to know your pleasure” (Shakespeare 138). Angelo replies to this by saying "That you might know it would much better please me, than to demand what 'tis." (Shakespeare 138). Then replies in a speaking voice where she can hear "Your brother cannot live" (Shakespeare 138). In this moment Isabella triggers Angelo 's desire, causing him to manipulate her into thinking her brother will be put to death so he can then trick her into having sex with him.

Between these two extremes every imaginable intermediate situation—or "ego state"—may be met with. But such ego states also depend on an outside world with the capacity to transform the ego-ideal into an ideal ego which, as early as the third year of life, allies itself with the superego to form an agency of great power in the life of the individual. Thus the earliest object relationships produce distinct character types: an ego strong in its narcissism but socially ill-adapted; an ego that is weak, and undeveloped in all respects; or an ego that is bound to a strong superego and thus able to assert itself in the world.
It must work to satisfy human’s instinctual tendencies while taking into account their conscience and doing what is rational and acceptable. Freud argues that these internal process that are constantly at work in our mind are what shape humans to do the things that they do.
