Psyche
Originally the name given to a Greek god in mythology, the word usually refers to the mind, especially to the unconscious mind postulated by Freud.


Psyche is also definable as soul, spirit, (inner) self, ego, true being, inner man/woman, persona, subconscious, mind, intellect or as Jung's 'anima'.

The psyche is the home and source of the irrational (meaning merely not-logically based) human responses called ‘feeling’ or emotion.
