ID – What Is ID?

ID is the first part of the personality that is found only from birth. It is completely part of the subconscious mind and responsible for the development of our initial behaviour. According to Freud, our psyche is our source of energy. It works on “Pleasurable Principle“. Pleasure theory says that all our needs, wishes must be completed immediately. If it does not happen then stress and nervousness comes into the act. ID, an extremely important in childhood plays a significant and eminent role. In fulfilling the basic needs of the infant.

For example, it can be understood that the child cries for him/her appetite until he/she gets milk. According to Freud, ID exists only in the infant stage. That’s the reason child weeps for the need for water without any discretion. You can not convince him/her to wait for a while that it is not possible to fulfil the desire right now.

Furthermore, just imagine if our personality is just made out of ID, how would you have felt? Yes, you got it right. Our life must be filled with so many difficulties. We would have started bothering anyone or everyone to fulfil our wishes. And socially also our lives would have been filled with difficulties and terrible. With ageing, ego and superego develops, which help us regain our social life by regularizing the ID. By the way, Id lives in our personality.
