Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality argues that human behaviour is the result of the struggle

Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality argues that human behaviour is the result of the struggle (interactions) of three components of the mind: the id, ego, and superego. This theory, known fully as “Freud’s structural theory of personality”, places great emphasis on the role of unconscious psychological conflicts in shaping behaviour and personality. Conflicts among these three structures, and our efforts to find balance in what they “desire”, determines how we behave, and approach the world. What balance we strike in any given situation determines how we will resolve the conflict between two behavioural tendencies: our biological aggressive and pleasure-seeking drives (id) versus our socialized internal control (superego).
