Superego

LRDFLS-PTX7L4

According to Freud, the superego is the morality center of the brain, a place where the internalized voices of parents, teachers and authority figures resides. Which of the following characters best represents the superego, and why?

A

Ralph, because he is constantly asking himself what his father the naval officer would do and trying to behave accordingly.

B

Ralph, because he is the only one who feels responsible for the defenseless littluns, much as an adult might feel.

C

Piggy, because he maintains the strongest connection with the adult world and reminds others to do the right thing on many occasions.

D

Piggy, because he frequently butts heads with Ralph, who is slowly consumed by Id.

E

Simon, because he is frequently seen as a Christ-like figure who opposes evil and cares for the littluns.
