What does ego mean to you?


I always think of the Psychoanalytic (Louis Althusser, preferably) definition of the ego (or Imaginary): a self-concept. To me, it has to do with sentience and self-awareness. Emotions cultivate this imagery to fulfill self-actualization—but ego plays a role (using our name as a symbol). For most people, however, ego only means conceitedness (which is only part of the ego). What do you think?
