STRUCTURAL THEORY OF THE MIND

This is a concept developed by Freud, and it describes the three theories that
encompass the human mind.  These three theories are the: Id, Superego, and Ego.
These structures have different functions, they are:

Id – The Id is responsible for sexual urges, aggression, and other primal urges.

Superego – The superego encompasses the part of your mind that tells you to
control your primal urges, it acts as your conscience.

Ego – The ego is the theory that helps the mind deal with the conflict between the
‘wants’ of the Id, and the conscience of the superego.
