Okay, I've been like this for as long as I remember and it's really hard to explain. Anyways, Freud mentioned the Id and the Superego as that angel and devil on your shoulder. Well, I always thought my way of thinking was normal, like whenever I see something or am confronted with something to think about I have two thoughts completely contradictory on everything. It kinda gives me the ability to see both sides to everything. I always say it's like my creative side and my logical side, or my Romantic era thinker and Enlightenment era thinker. Like I kinda feel like I'm two different people I guess.

Well to get to the point I was talking about this with several of my friends and they thought it was weird, and they don't have thoughts like that. My girlfriend said I should see a therapist about it, and I guess the Id, Ego, and Superego are all supposed to be subconcious. I don't know, does anyone else think this way?

I think you're describing that in a way that makes it sound weirder than it is.

And the ego is mostly conscious, and the superego partially conscious, I think. They're not all unconscious, they're a model of the mind that's supposed to make up all of your thought processes. Although they don't, because psychology has changed since then.

Well it's not like guiding me on right or wrong, it's hard to explain. It's like one side romanticizes almost everything and the other side tries to use cold logic. I don't know how to explain it any better than me, but they feel like two different people, but not in like a schizophrenic way.

euhhhh. I have an imaginary friend named Simon... or Jack I cant remember his name. He tells me to do some funy stuff. Or they. Are they 2? wait I dont remember...


You do not need to consult a psycho guy. You are just more enlighted then others and care about other peoples reaction. You are the next budha

its not a personality order, dichotonomy in the human thought process is very normal. Are you also familiar with his theories on eros and thanatos?

Oh...

I was trying to be teh funniez. I don't know really, I thought everyone could approach problems from more than one "angle" or point-of-view.

I don't really know what this has to do with id, ego, and superego. Doesn't everybody have different "sides" to themselves?

From what I remember from psychology (not a lot), I don't think what you're describing really applies to Freud's id-ego-superego model.

To me, it sounds like what you're describing is called "making a decision." Simple as that. Doesn't everyone approach problems in several different ways before deciding the best thing to do?

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

It's not just my decision making process, that was just an example. It's like everything is contradictory, I don't know how to explain it better, it's just my thoughts on everything, and the two sides of my personality are constantly arguing, like almost a fight for how I'll become. One side will plant an idea and the otherside will freak out and become paranoid about it, I have to play tricks on myself like a preemptive reaction for things I might become paranoid about just to keep from feeling paranoid later in the night.

This is dissociative identity disorder.

Wow. Freudian Psychology with the Pit, I didn't know that we were that sophisticated. I always though the three parts were subconscious, but maybe not for everyone. And take into mind that many of Freud's ideas have been disreguarded by modern psychologists. Sometimes Father doesn't know best. Get the pun?

They don't ever take control, like I don't know, they wander like thoughts, but like they never have control of my arms or what not, just like my thoughts. I'm not multiple personality.


Regardless, Freud's id/ego/superego theory is unable to be proven and thus not used in modern psychology.

I don't know what's wrong with you. I'm not a psychologist. Go to the doctor, receive meds.
