One of the biggest questions we have to deal with in a globalised world is the question of Identity.
- How do we understand ourselves?
- How do we understand the Other?
- How do we live together with mutual respect for each other’s Identity?
Jamila Koshy, an Indian Psychiatrist, states that Identity consists of three main aspects. The first is the self-identity which is the awareness of oneself, also called the Ego identity. The second being personal idiosyncrasies and finally, the social identity which is the social part of one’s identity.
In this video, Jamila expands on the Ego Identity, exploring the main Influences that make up one’s Ego Identity and concluding with inevitability of the God dimension to form a stable Identity.
