I guess I have a lot more reading to do. Any book suggestions?
Its been a while since i did Psychology but heres a little brief definition i hope it helps
"Id, ego and super-ego are the three parts of the psychic apparatus defined in Sigmund Freud's structural model of the psyche; they are the three
theoretical constructs in terms of whose activity and interaction mental life is described. According to this model of the psyche, the id is the set
of uncoordinated instinctual trends; the ego is the organised, realistic part; and the super-ego plays the critical and moralising role."
Your superego is the part of you personality which is sort of like a 'referee' it divides between the basic principle drives (intuition is included
in this) and the reason part of your personality.
