May I try to explain a little better?
Maybe because I am aware of the Ego at play at all times..... It doesn't need to be tickled/ threatened to draw my attention to it. i have been studying this for some time ....oh, only about 30 odd years or more. Anyways, my point is...... i know enough now to know, it is always there...Present, waiting, like a nagging bore waiting to elbow in.

Have you ever seen an ill-treated dog that is so up the wall wanting to be alpha that it is on guard constantly..... This is the ego..... Your's/ mine...It's the ego. It is not subdued because the risk it holds onto so tightly is flawed...It sees loss where there is none. It sees losing, when there is nothing to lose. It sees only want. Holding tight to an imagined situation or circumstance.

No amount of molly-codling, stroking, recognition, accolades, accreditation's, scores, wins, numbers nor awards will every abate its greed for supremacy. By it's nature you can never appease the Ego....It's nuts.

Give in to the ego mania.

Buy yourself a crown off Ebay and some robes you'll enjoy it. Your neighbours might look at you oddly and the postman might think you've gone insane but who cares about them?

How are you defining Ego? (Freud's or your own)

What is your  purpose in picking apart ego's?
Sherapy..
20960 posts (wow impressed)
74 likes.. ( :lol:)

But seriously.. I'm defining Ego as I percieve it, which I guess is a mix of Freud & my own crock-pot theories.. Not so much Jung as I havn't really looked into his theories of Ego.

My purpose in picking apart Ego's is genuine interest.. I know I have an Ego that I need to understand better.. Having other people join in this exersize is entertaining, educational & empowering.. I do however have an alterior motive, however, so far, there's been no oportunities for this alterior motive to be realised..

Your a ticky one Sherapy..
I've read a few of your posts in the past and to be honest I've found your posts very difficult to read and understand which makes me think that your Ego & personality is at a completely different wavelength to what I know.. I'll take a stab at part of your personality from what I can glean anyway, and say that you over anylise far to much to the point of missing points altogether..

Am I right?

Anyway, pick apart an Ego if you like.. B-Randomly hasn't been picked on yet.. I'd love to pick on his Ego, but we know each other quite well through PM's, so that would be cheating in my book..

Editied to add: I don't think anyone has picked on Oujia's alter ego either..

No, you're dangerously narcissistic. You've been handed the world on a golden platter, whilst retaining the silver spoon. You have had no challenges.

Your user name denotes a 'self made man' and self admittedly, you're clearly not that.

In a way, I feel sorry for you. :(

I went to Ouija's profile, and it's all there.

My base response? She's someone that entertains mysticism and exhibits a lot of empathy.

Soooo what?

Most narcissists have a poor self-image and their narcissism is a defence mechanism used to protect their damaged egos.

I have no damaged ego and my self-esteem is actually very high. I dont fit the criteria for megalomania because -
1. I'm not neurotic (I'm not deluding away a distressful incident using narcissism).
2. Its not an anxiety related to the loss or disappearance of an object.
3. I dont suffer from paranoia.
4. I dont have volatile mood swings between depression and mania (bi-polar).
5. I'm not depressed and have no history of it.

My ego is about the entertainment value it brings me not a mental disorder. I'm what you would call a complete muppet lol.

There was a priest, a rabbi, and me. We were on top of of a 100 story sky scrapper with bets about our egos. The rabbi whips out his ego..

"wow... 4 floors, beat that guys"

The priest goes

"piece of cake" he brings his ego out and lets it hang.

"holy crap!!!! Ten stories!!!"

At this point they look over at me at me and I'm jumping up around swinging my hips and weaving.

"what the hell are you doing seeker?"

Then how do you perceive ego Mr.T ? How are you incorporating Freud's theory of Ego into your perception of ego?

You obviously don't know anything about me Mr Wrong wig...... Of cause I have tried the many masks, guises, hats, shields, crowns, labels, badges, awards, accolades, being the so called winner. i have tried it all out for size.The donning of habits, robes and superficialities. There is nothing of substance nor sustenance with in it...... I got bored.
i feel i would have to be pretty stupid and/or superficial to still be in need of that. Yet if I had not ventured into its realms i could not speak from the well trodden path of understanding/ knowledge I have.
It's all part of the exploration into what it is to be-ing human as we are not a one thing but multi-facetted with the Ego being within the realms of the darker side of ones own self, so to speak. No-one can only stay in the light, if we are to know ourselves and each other. To see the contrast have the measure, the gauge, the understanding?
Been there, done.

I hope this helps.

Admitably, most of the time my ego percieves is self.. But sometimes especially when meditating or in deep self reflection or thought, my true self squeezes through and percieves my ego.. Is kind of hard to explain, I had a onion chart showing Ego and layers of with the borders between types of Self. Through Meditation, the boders between True self & Ego are easily crossed..

Imo, Ego is, like i said before, a false center. It is the result of living with other Ego's.. It's needy, and want's to be socially accepted and liked and noticed.. Society builds your Ego and your ego is strengthened by society and how society reflects back on you.. Ego however is not the real you because Ego is a reflection of society.. Ego needs to be fed and pampered and told that it' fits into society.. It's contionuously seeking attention and it uses the outside world and others to justify it's existence.. It is false, because it thinks it is the center of existence but isn't. As far as I'm aware, Jung puts Ego in the center of existence, and Freud put's it outside of the true self.. Like Freud, I place Ego as an encasing or sheilding mask around the other layers of your true self.

Great post!
Blue, for me to be able to get an actual  reality principle( a idea of who one is) or the Freudian term "Ego" online in and of itself would be extremely limited. I have experienced over and over the online persona doesn't translate at all who the person is. This has been the most profound insight I have come too, no one I talked to via online only ended up being like they were online in real life. I think online serves as a way to initiate conversations but without meeting them or talking to them it can only be shallow/surface at best( we maybe can glean we are of like minds , but that is about it. IMO) I  cannot truly know someone or contribute anything of valuable feedback  to them until I have personal experience with them. I do not think one can get a full picture of anyone's identity without actually talking to them in person and spending time with them.

I used to do this actually... This is a bit like profiling. I am very good ( see my ego), but I have learned to refrain... Look up my thread " inner voice"......

And one more thing... Sherpy over 20,000 posts but 74 likes.. Holy crap... We don't always agree, but what is that about .... seriously.. I never thought she was that disagreeable... Quit logical actually.
