My ego was a need that I have for security/fluidity (desire to be many different things), my alter ego would be something that is artificial and fixed, a clear idea that I want to be but am not.

This alter ego can be imagined through a person in front of their boudoir spraying perfume. The sensuality behind this scene, the brief moments of entrancement as the perfume is released.
Despite their stressors and insecurities, one feels sexy in that moment.

There are different elements, but the thing is these differences are set.

Top Notes: The top notes of a perfume form your first impression of a fragrance. They are immediate and what you notice before anything else. Chemically speaking, top notes are small, light molecules of fragrance that evaporate quickly so they will be the first to fade. Top notes normally fade within 10-15 minutes of applying fragrance to your skin.
* -------------------------------------------------
Middle Notes: The middle notes of a perfume emerge right before the top notes fade away into oblivion. These are the “heart” of the fragrance and are sometimes called heart notes. The middle notes are often used to mask the base notes, which are unpleasant when first applied but become increasingly better with the passage of time. Middle notes typically fade within 30-45 minutes of applying the scent to your skin.

Base Notes: The base notes are the foundation of a perfume and help keep the top notes and middle notes from…...

Me Myself and Ego

... (phallic stage). Should any one of these early stages either be over- or undergratified, the person could develop a fixation and become locked into that stage of development.   Freud’s enduring contributions is the idea that an individual’s personality is composed of three parts, the id, superego, and ego. The id, which resides in the unconscious mind, is driven by only one thing: the desire for personal pleasure, "me, me, me." For instance, if you have an urge to satisfy your hunger but have no cash, you may simply steal a hotdog from a street vendor. The superego, which mostly resides in the unconscious, is the source of what we call our conscience. It is the part of our mind that tells us what is right and wrong, including social norms. The superego wants to obey standards. If we don’t, then we may feel guilty or anxious. The superego would tell the id not to steal the hotdog because it is wrong and you might get arrested. The third part of the personality is the ego, which resides in the conscious mind. The role of the ego is that of a mediator. It balances  the demands of the id with the demands of the superego. Freud believed that the mind tries to protect itself from frustration and severe distress such as war, rape, death, and so on. He believed that we have several techniques for this, which he called defense mechanisms (Corsini, 1994, p. 390). Here are a few common defense mechanisms that you might recognize: Displacement, Compensation and......

According to Jung (Bandura Freud) Ego Is Everything

...According to Jung the ego is everything that a person is conscious. The ego is concerned of the thinking process, feeling, remembering, and perceiving. It sees that the function of everyday life is carried out. It is responsible as well for our identity and sense of continuity in time. Not to compare the two of the ego and the psyche the psyche is both conscious and the substantial unconscious aspect of personality, more in as a complex personally disturbing a constellation of ideas. A complex has a very disproportionate influence on behavior.  It occurs over and over again in our life. Such in a mother complex will spend time related to the idea of mother whereas the same in a father as in sex, power, money or any other complex.   Jung didn't believe that the stages of development where important such as Freud.  Jung defined the stages in terms of the focus of libidinal energy.  Jung disagreed with Freud about the nature of the libido.  Freud believed that the libido was mainly sexual in nature and how it was invested within the five years of life was determined by a large extent on what a individual adult personality would be like.  He also believed that libidinal energy was directed simply toward whatever was important to the individual at the time and what was important changed as a function of a person's maturation. Jung believed that the libido as general biological life energy that is concentrated on different problems as they arise. Libido is the driving force behind...

Ethnic and Ego Identity

...International Journal of Intercultural Relations 24 (2000) 777–790 The relationship of ethnic identity and ego identity status among adolescents and young adults Curtis W. Branch*, Priti Tayal, Carla Triplett Columbia University, New York, USA Abstract A multi-ethnic sample of 248, ages 13–26, was used to examine the effects of age, gender, and ethnic group membership on ethnic identity and ego identity scores. Subjects were recruited from college and public schools in a large northeastern metropolitan area. The multigroup ethnic identity measure (MEIM) was used to assess ethnic identity and ego identity status was measured by the extended objective measure of ego identity status (EOMEIS). An age by ethnic group design was employed. Consistent findings of significant ethnic group differences in levels of ethnic identity were observed. Age and ethnic group were found to contribute differently to ethnic identity and ego identity status. The relationship between ethnic identity and ego identity status was found to be pronounced among subjects of color but not as dramatic as hypothesized. # 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.

The Master, Freuds Id, Ego and Superego

...Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film The Master, set in 1950, examines dueling forces of the human psyche. The three main characters can be viewed metaphorically in terms of Freud’s id, ego and super ego. Anderson’s new film is a beautiful character study examining the inner workings of human psychology. Freddy Quell is an immature, alcoholic, hypersexual, violent WWII veteran, possesses no self-control, impulsively chasing his cravings His behavior exactly fits of Freud’s id. His primitive qualities resound further in his hunched posture, which resembles an earlier stage of Human evolution. Lancaster Dodd, a writer, scientist and philosopher and founder and self appointed ‘Master’ of The Cause, a cult seeking to raise humans to a state of perfection. Lancaster facilitates this progression through a process of hypnosis which allows individuals to access distant memories of past lives stretching back trillions of years through time holes, providing a deeper, purer sense of self; Lancaster even claims these applications can cure certain types of leukemia. After losing a series of jobs and on the run from a group of farmers, Freddy, in a drunken stupor stumbles unnoticed aboard a docked ship, occupied by Lancaster Dodd and his entourage, just prior to casting off for sea. Freddy awakes unaware of his surroundings and unable to recall the events of the previous night. Hung over, he meets with Lancaster, who is more curious than upset about Freddy’s aggressive, disruptive...

Ego, Id and Superego

...The relationship between the id, ego and superego....let's start with id, it is born with us, it is the unconscious pleasure seeking component of the structural model. It's seeks pleasure and avoids pain. Simple basic instinct that we are born with. Next we have the ego, The ego is based on the reality principle and is in our preconscious. The ego understands that other people have needs and desires and that sometimes being impulsive or selfish can hurt us in the long run. Its the ego's job to meet the needs of the id, while taking into consideration the reality of the situation. Then we have the superego, The superego is divided into two parts; ego ideal and conscience. The ego-ideal is what we aspire to, a standard of good behavior. The conscience is our inner voice, it tells us when we have done something wrong. The superego is either a source of rewards, that is feelings of satisfaction and pride, or of punishment, feelings of shame or guilt. The demands of the "id" (I want it and I want it now) and the demands of the superego, (no it's wrong) are often in conflict with each other. According to Freud, the ego is the strongest so that it can satisfy the needs of the id, not upset the superego, and still take into consideration the reality of every situation. If the id gets too strong, impulses and self gratification take over the person's life. If the superego becomes to strong, the person would be driven by rigid morals, would be judgmental and unbending in his or......

Stages of Ego Development

...Stages of Ego Development Jillian Whalen PSY/230 June 20, 2014 Chris Allen Shreve Stages of Ego Development Jane Leovinger created a method of recognizing which stage of ego development one may be in at any given age. A verbal sentence completion test is implemented to help the participant understand more about which one of the nine stages of development she may be experiencing at the time and what she needs to do in order to move on to the next stage. Each stage explains what level of maturity, acceptance, and understanding one may be in at the time of test completion. They also help the individual understand their internal feelings about environmental factors surrounding them and how these factors form the ego. Loevinger notes that not everyone reaches self-actualization and many may be stuck at certain stages. Stage one – The Pre-Social and Symbolic Stage: Because this stage occurs at infancy, it is not as understood as well as other stages because the child is non-verbal and unable to complete the sentence completion test. An infant’s ego, according to Loevinger, is most interested in gratifying immediate needs, such as feedings and diaper changes. She also notes that infants form a close bond with their primary care giver. While the child recognizes she is a different entity from the world that surrounds her, she has trouble distinguishing her own identity from the caregiver. Stage two- The Impulsive Stage Loevinger describes this stage in...

Stages of Ego Development

...Stages of Ego Development Jane Loevinger is a personality psychologist that believed in eight stages of ego development. These eight stages are impulsive, self-protective, conformist, conscientious/conformist, conscientious, individualist, autonomous and integrated. These stages are a theory that allows a person to explain their experiences in life as well as make since of those experiences. These different steps are what a person will face throughout their life time. The first stage is the impulsive stage. The impulsive stage is your bodily feelings. The manifestations that might appear during this stage are how a person reacts to rewards and punishments. The second stage is self-protective. This stage is a person’s self control and their impulses. The manifestations that might appear during this stage are becoming deceptive. The third stage is conformist. This stage is when a person seeks approval. The person wants to be accepted in a group but anyone outside their group they might reject. The fourth stage is conscientious/conformist. Once a person gets to this stage the importance of approval is not as important anymore. They seek values feelings and adjustments. The fifth stage is conscientious. During this stage a person will develop a new sense in responsibility. They evaluate what is right from what is wrong because they seek choices. The sixth stage is individualist. In this stage a person’s inner self is manifested by being more tolerant with others and......

Ego Development

...Construct Validity of the Sentence Completion Test of Ego Development Jane Loevinger Washington University Evidence for the construct validity of the SenCompletion Test of Ego Development (SCT), some of it previously unpublished, is reviewed. The substantive component is substantiated both by intuitive plausibility and by the fact that rating skill can be communicated through written instructions. Internal consistency is shown by alpha coefficients of about .85. Evidence for sequentiality is provided by studies showing cross-sectional gains with age during adolescence, similar profiles of item scores for adjacent total protocol ratings, substantial correlations over long time spans, gains proportional to retest intervals during adolescence, gains following theory-relevant interventions of several months’ length, and better comprehension of lower than of higher stages. The SCT has substantial correlation with tests of related conceptions, such as Kohlberg’s test of moral maturity, and with measures of ego level applied to other behavior samples. Correlations with isolated traits characteristic of specific stages range from negligible to positive. Studies of external validity in general yield positive results, though theory does not sharply define what results should be considered positive. At lower ego levels there is behavioral evidence confirming the syndromes; at higher levels differential evidence lies in attitudes and ideas. Overall, the test has adequate validity...

Summary of Ego Boundaries

...The Summary of Ego Boundaries, or the Fit of My Father’s Shirt It is found that people often think and act differently. And there is such an interesting experience that you can always hear two voices from your mind, one is positive and the other negative. So we doubt that how many selves inhabit in our brain on earth, and we also wonder that how can we distinguish a self from another? Can a single person hold different personalities? Different people may give different perspectives. However, those are multiple personality and selfhood that Robert Sapolsky wants to argue through his own experience after his father’s death in his essay. Sapolsky firstly took us to look around Stephen Hawking’s lecture. Stephen Hawking was a highly respected astrophysicist. He couldn’t walk by himself, and even needed a spokesman to interpret for him in the class. After observing all Hawking’s behaviors and comparing with those he had in the past, the write considered Hawking’s act as a metaphor and raised further questions about the separation of bodies and consciousness. And the write thought that two hemispheres of the brain can function separately. He brought Roger Sperry’s experiment in to prove it. And he also introduced another notion presented by Julian Jaynes who stated that there were two individuals inside a single brain, which was rejected by Sperry. Nevertheless, there were battles about it all the time. Then the writer showed us different views about split personalities from...

Stages of Ego Development

...Stages of Ego Development Jane Loevinger’s has stages of development. The names of these stages are impulse, self protective, conformist, conscientious-conformist, conscientious, individualistic, autonomous, and integrated. The theory is made for a way to understand an entire life span. According to Jane Loevinger’s theory and the stages of development is way to explain our experiences, to make sense of it all. We change as we go through our life but what cause these changes psychologically is unknown. This theory breaks it down into steps that we all face at one point or another in our lives. As we mature and get older we start reaching other steps or stages. According to our text material “each stage provides an overall framework of meaning that the person employs to make sense of the world. We all encounter different stages at different times, and sometimes don’t even get through one of them. Types of manifestations that occur vary. It can be through your impulse control, interpersonal mode, and conscious preoccupations. All are around how we react and cope, how we physically and mentally react, and how we carry it and let things reflect on us as individuals. We all at one point or another have suffered and dealt with the fact or being scared of not fitting in, and trying to figure out why we are here and what we are suppose to be doing, the bigger purpose of life. How we react and then apply that all plays a factor on our development and ego....

Id, Ego, Super Ego

...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 organized, realistic part; and the super-ego plays the critical and moralizing role. ID The id is the unorganized part of the personality structure that contains a human's basic, instinctual drives. The id contains the libido, which is the primary source of instinctual force that is unresponsive to the demands of reality. The id acts according to the "pleasure principle", seeking to avoid pain or displeasure aroused by increases in instinctual tension. EGO The ego comprises the organized part of the personality structure that includes defensive, perceptual, intellectual-cognitive, and executive functions. Conscious awareness resides in the ego, although not all of the operations of the ego are conscious. Originally, Freud used the word ego to mean a sense of self, but later revised it to mean a set of psychic functions such as judgment, tolerance, reality testing, control, planning, defense, synthesis of information, intellectual functioning, and memory. The ego separates out what is real. It helps us to organize our thoughts and make sense of them and the world around us."The ego is that part of the id which has been modified...

Ego Development

...The stages of ego development according to Jane Loevinger is implicated to be ways to understanding, comprehending, and organizing of a person’s life experiences (McAdams, 2006). Through the different stages of ego will help to gain understanding into the personality of individuals in how each person is different in stages of their life by measuring by sentence completions test. The first stage of the ego development is considered to be invalid because the test guide lines of Jane Loevinger’s test is based on the subjects ability to talk and read, the test is a verbal sentence test; henceforth infants cannot verbally reply to the test. The second stage is the impulsive stage which is in early childhood, were the child acts impulsively in expressing their self as egocentric in how the child understands good behavior is rewarded and the acts of bad behavior is punishment for the act. The behaviorisms of the child are manifestations of being impulsive in their actions in selfish egocentric ways, which are dependent upon others and the bodily feelings (McAdams, 2006). The third stage of ego development is the self-protective stage which Loevinger viewed people as having understood and appreciation of rules and how important it is to obey the rules. The self-protective stage is in the awareness of possibilities of consequences to the cause and effects to obtain what they desire, want, or need from others. The manifestations possible are becoming opportunistic; manipulative in...
