Lovely Dr. Vania Manipod tells us how Freud and psychoanalysis influences her psychotherapeutic approach while wearing our Freud Socks.
Here is a quick rundown of Freud's Ego, Id and Superego.
Freud's theory tells us that each one of us (each of our personalities) is made up of three parts - Ego, Id and Superego.
Id is that instinctive part. Think of a baby who cries when she is hungry and hits when she is angry. It's main objective is to seek pleasure. Most of us grow up and learn to regulate that part of us. (But not all)
Ego is that person we meet in the real world, the part that mingles at parties and chats with the checkout person at the grocery store. It's the part of us we present to each other (and ourselves).
Superego is that part of us that knows all the rules of society, and all that stuff our parents tough us. It's the part that knows you can't just grab what you want in a store, you have to pay for it.
Id and Superego are somewhat at odds, and Ego is there to negotiate between the two.
OK, now you are sufficiently prepared to wear our Freud Socks!
