Ego States

The First Order Structural Model

Structural Ego State Model

Eric Berne devised the concept of ego states to help explain how our personality is made up and how we relate to others. These ego states are drawn as three stacked circles and they are one of the building blocks of TA. They categorise the ways we think, feel and behave; at the simplest level they are called Parent, Adult, and Child.

Each ego state is given a capital letter to denote the difference between these Ego States and actual parents/adults/children.
