Definition: Sigmund Freud described the ego as the part of personality that strikes a balance between the basic urges of the id, the moralistic demands of the superego, and the realities of the world around us. As you might remember, Freud believed that the id was the part of personality made up of all our unconscious desires, wishes, and needs. The ego helps satisfy the demands of the id in ways that are both realistic and socially appropriate. Learn more about the ego.
