SEMESTER Spring 2014
Introduction to Psychology (PSY101)
Assignment No. 02
Due Date: July 18, 2014 Marks: 15
Topic: Structure of Personality
Upon completion of this assignment, students will be able to;
· Understand the basic elements of Freudian psychology
· Understand which element of personality is operational in their life
1. You are required to critically read the story that has been given below. In that story, three
elements of personality that were given by Sigmund Freud have been incorporated. Your
task is to identify which character of the story is depicting which structure of personality
as given by Freud e.g., id, ego, and superego. After the identification, you have to justify
your choices as well. The story is as follows:
Mr. and Mrs. Hamad had 4 children; Ali, Amna, Bushra and Ahad. Once they had to go to
another city for a wedding ceremony. The kids stayed behind with their grandmother as their
exams were going on at that time. At night, Ahad started to have a very strong craving for
something sweet to eat. At once he thought about the ice-cream that his mother had left in the
freezer thinking that if any sudden guests will come, she will serve it to them. She had forbidden
her kids from eating that ice-cream. However Ahad wanted to eat that ice-cream at any cost. So,
he went to the kitchen.
As he was about to open the ice-cream box, Ali and Amna came into the kitchen. When they saw
Ahad with the ice-cream, they were shocked. Ali came forward and scolded Ahad, saying “Ahad!
You should not be stealing. This is a very bad and dishonest act. How can your conscience be
satisfied after doing such an immoral act?” Ahad defended himself by saying, “I do not care
about what you think. I am having a very strong craving for sweet at this moment. So please
hand over the box to me.”
Amna, who was watching her brothers arguing, stepped forward and tried to mediate the
situation. She said to Ahad, “Dear Ahad! Please do not fight with your elder brother. If you are
having such a strong craving, then here! Take this candy from me. In this way, your craving will
be satisfied and you would not have to steal anything as well.”
Make sure to present your answers in tabular form! Marks will be deducted if table format
would not be followed.
1 mark for identification
2 marks for justification
2. What do you think which element of personality is most prominent in your case. In other
words, in your day to day dealing which element among id, ego and superego do you

Today is the Last Day Plz Guys Start Discussion......
plz solution ni discussion he kar lo
in this story Ahad has id personality
bcoz he has immediate gratification of need 2. Amna has ego personality bcoz she know need can be fullfill in a sociable and mannerable form
3. Ali has super ego bcoz he holds all internalize moral standards and sense of right and wrong
The ego deals with reality, trying to meet the desires of the id in a way that is socially acceptable in the world. This may mean delaying gratification, and helping to get rid of the tension the id feels if a desire is not met right away. e.g
The superego develops last, and is based on morals and judgments about right and wrong. Even though the superego and the ego may reach the same decision about something, the superego’s reason for that decision is more based on moral values, while the ego’s decision is based more on what others will think or what the consequences of an action could be
