The interest in the ego or the reason for the emergence of man as an important thesis in philosophy has been relevant for many years as its main component. The entry of the ego problem into psychology as a main subject coincides with the second half of the 19th century. In the history of philosophy and psychology, the nature of the Ego is approached from different points of view. The only meaning of this phenomenon does not exist even today. Many psychologists who touch on the subject of the ego also refer to it as polymodality. The next modality is always perceived as the real and true (I am now) Ego. The true Ego must be sought by consciously addressing the various layers of the subconscious. Just as a broken mirror can show a fragmented image of the truth, the real Ego transcends the farthest limits of human understanding and invades the deepest layers of consciousness. In the first half of the 20th century, various concepts of self-consciousness or human Ego appeared, seeking answers to practical questions such as the treatment of mental illnesses, psychotherapy, etc. Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud is the author of the most consistent pattern that emerged in the first decade of this century. A psychoanalytical approach to the concept of ego is presented as a control center for adaptation perceived through the communication of the organization of mental processes in a personality. This Ego is directly related to perception, provides the origin of movement and plays the role of awakening in connection with the external world. In the article, issues such as psychoanalytical approach to the concept of Ego, control of adaptation understood through the communication of the organization of mental processes in a personality are investigated
