The Ego or the Conscious Mind, is similar to that of Freud’s conscious mind. According to Jung this part of the mind can also be called the Ego as it is not only responsible for our voluntary actions, such as, thinking, feeling, decision making, and analysing, but is also largely responsible for our separate identities as individuals. The Ego is the conscious, and rationalizing self. In Jung’s own words, “So far as we know, consciousness is always Ego-consciousness. In order to be conscious of myself, I must be able to distinguish myself from others. Relationship can only take place where this distinction exists.”
