Shadow Aspect

Even though the ID is the most substantial part of the mind, early on in childhood it is suppressed by social constrains forming a negative image, which in turn is denied as a defensive mechanism forming the sociopathic Shadow aspect. Simultaneously the Superego is formed projecting a false self, conforming to societies sense of norm. Although the Superego suppresses the Shadow aspect, the Shadow remains, hence indicating that social skills such as morality, is a learned trait.
