The Psychology of Personality

Keywords: awareness; conscience; soul; spirit; mind; brain


Consciousness can be defined briefly as the moral organizer of being, the inner meaning of what is good or bad, the inner judge (the superego in psychoanalysis). We become aware of the stings of conscience when we make moral decisions. But in reality, consciousness, or its awareness and development is the soul of transpersonal psychology, not consciousness. Self-awareness has almost nothing in common with consciousness, despite the fact that many appreciate the meanings of the two terms to be identical. The connotation of the notion of consciousness is the moral one, a connotation according to which this is something that prevents us from doing something bad, which we will regret later. Self-awareness is defined as the most evolved form of psychic reflection of objective reality.
