Definitions and meaning of ego

ego

Etymology

From Latin ego (I). Chosen by Freud’s translator as a translation of his use of German Ich as a noun for this concept from the pronoun ich (I). Doublet of I and Ich.

Pronunciation

  • (UK) IPA(key): /ˈiːɡəʊ/
  • (General American) IPA(key): /ˈiɡoʊ/
  • Rhymes: -iːɡəʊ

Noun

ego (countable and uncountable, plural egos)

  1. The self, especially with a sense of self-importance.
    • 1998, Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
      When every thought absorbs your attention completely, when you are so identified with the voice in your head and the emotions that accompany it that you lose yourself in every thought and every emotion, then you are totally identified with form and therefore in the grip of ego. Ego is a conglomeration of recurring thought forms and conditioned mental-emotional patterns that are invested with a sense of I, a sense of self.
  2. (psychology, Freudian) The most central part of the mind, which mediates with one's surroundings.
    • 1954, Calvin S. Hall, “A Primer of Freudian Psychology”
      In the well adjusted person the ego is the executive of the personality and is governed by the reality principle.
    • 1991, Stephen Fry, The Liar, p. 19:
      ‘Everything begins with “I”, you mean. Which is ego,’ said Tom, placing an ankle behind his ear, ‘not id.’
