In psychology I was taught there was a common misconception between the "ego" and the "id" can you confirm this?
In a nutshell, during first semester psychology I was taught that the “ego” was part of a system determining between right and wrong while the “id” was responsible for looking out for the self and our own best interest not really right from wrong.
Did I take this in correctly?
