Freud’s theory was that there were three aspects to the human consciousness.
• Id: Primitive, instinctual urges.
• Ego: Rational and organized aspect.
• Superego: Critical, moralistic portion that controls the id.
Carl Jung’s theory involved splitting our psyche into four archetypes:
• Persona: The image we project in order to protect the Self.
• Self: The entirety of the person. Similar to Freud’s Ego.
• Shadow: Similar to Freud’s Id. It’s the characteristics that we repress inside ourselves. Not necessarily bad; a mean person’s Shadow might take the form of, say, an innocent child.
• Anima/Animus: The feminine aspect of a man, or the masculine aspect of a woman.
That’s just to name a few. Many theories describe our consciousness as being a multifaceted entity, and some even describe the human psyche as possessing more than one conscious.
