The primary action of the superego is to suppress entirely any urges or desires of the id that are considered wrong or socially unacceptable. It also tries to force the ego to act morally rather than realistically. Finally, the superego strives for moral perfections, without taking reality into account.

The acquisition of moral or ethical values is an important aspect of the socialisation of children. Freud and Piaget have both described how this process happens.

Perhaps Freud's single most enduring and important idea was that the human psyche (personality) has more than one 's personality theory () saw the psyche structured into three parts (i.e., tripartite), the id, ego and superego, all developing at different stages in our lives.

Even though the superego and the ego may reach the same decision about something, the superego's reason for that decision is based more on moral values, while the ego's decision is based more on what others will think or what the consequences of an action could be on the individual.
