10 Should I eat a bacon-double cheese burger? What would Id say?“Yes. It is yummy and I am hungry.”What would Superego say?“No. It is bad for my health. It is not an ecologically sustainable way to eat.”How would Ego resolve conflict?Use defense mechanism (rationalization) to satisfy id and superego. “Well, just this one time won’t hurt. I’m in a big hurry and wouldn’t it be worse if I had a sensible meal and then had to speed to get to my meeting on time?”
11 How are the id, ego, and superego at work (or not)? Pastor Ted Haggard was the leader of America's largest evangelical Christian association, the founder and pastor of one of America's most famous mega-churches, a campaigner for "family values" and a vocal opponent of gay marriage legislation. Then a male prostitute came forward and claimed that Haggard had paid him for services and meth. Haggard admitted to having paid for a massage and said that he threw the drugs away.George and the éclair
