Answer : EGO
self, ego – n
your consciousness of your own identity
The word ego comes from the Latin word meaning“I.” When Freud developed psychoanalytic theory, he used the German word es to describe the part of the self that is responsible for decision making. Freud’s English translator chose the word ego.
A more common definition of ego is self-esteem or self-importance. When someone thinks too highly of themselves, we say they have a big ego. Someone who thinks of themselves as better and more important than other people might be called an egomaniac.
The definition of ego in psychology is quite different from the common usage of the word. In psychology, ego is a neutral concept that simply describes an aspect of yourself.
