Sigmund Freud was a great man, his greatness is till date, cited in his brilliant work and theories. Freud came up with the three categorically different structures to a person’s personality. Freud believed that personality has three structures: the id, the ego, and the superego.
The id is a tier or part of the personality set up; it is a structure that has no contact to reality- a structure that is unconscious totally. The ego is a grown state or a state that is furthered from an id state to form the structure of ego, which is in contact with reality and which uses reasoning to make decisions. Now, having stated both the states of id and ego, there emerges a state or structure called the superego, which is the moral attribute to a person’s personality, the ability to feel or analyze whether something is right or wrong. This is called the state of superego wherein lies the conscientious personality, gauging right from wrong. These above said analyzing statements were those of the Great Sigmund Freud who stated in correctness the different layers, tiers or substances that form the whole (in this case, the whole being a personality, which has structures to it).
Whilst Freudian principles are based on the theory or rather, a belief by Freud that personalities were like icebergs; there are many definitive views on personality and personality development. While Freud may have personality ideas that were listed as above, and thereby personality development would be done to and on every structural tiers of personality (the three tiers of personality), personality development can be encompassing and can be specifically enhancing as well.
Personality development can be compared to a lock-system of the house, without it, the structure is incomplete. It can also be compared with analogies like an envelope sealed or in other words, like sealing an envelope too. The refinement and the training that personality development brings with it, gives a light, subtle feeling of completion. One may not give it too much thought at times, but think about it, an un-sealed envelope that is posted, can very well, get misplaced or read or lost. Similarly, without personality development in today’s’ world, one may feel less competent than his contemporaries who may have had sessions in personality development, one is able to feel more confident and more aware with the surging attributes of personality development.
