There are many different theories and definitions of "self" among professional psychologists, but many agree that the "self" consists of a person's conscious and unconscious aspects, their personality, cognitions or thoughts and feelings. All these traits or aspects combine together into the person's core identity. Other synonyms for "self" are soul, ego, personality, or individual.
