Egogram is a means of conceptualizing the personality of an individual. It is very popular in Japan and used as a means to study persons traits. It is part of Transactional Analysis. "the most important aspect for the use of the egogram in modern psychotherapy is that, it gives an evaluation of the distribution of energy in the personality, and it can be used by the individual to show how much energy is needed to be re-distributed to other parts of the personality to make positive change."

Hi Kannan,

The Egogram is a questionnaire connected with transactional analysis. The transactional analysis is a type of psychotherapy developed by Eric Berne (1961) that emphasizes the influence of the ego states of Parent, Adult, and Child on a person's interactions with others. The Egogram for each students evaluates subjects based on 5 categories: critical parents (CP), nurturing parents (NP), adult (A), free child (FC) and adapted child (AC). The parent ego state relates to critical (CP) and nurturing (NP); it is based on the subject's perception of his own parents. The adult ego state (A) is concerned with reality testing and estimating probabilities in transactions with the outside world. The child ego state comprises the free feelings (FC) and adaptations (AC) actually experienced in childhood.

Hello,

An egogram is simply defined as: ‘a bar graph showing the relationship of the parts of the personality to each other and the amount of psychological energy emanating outward.’

The Egogram is a bar graph showing the amount of energy within the ego structure of the person and how he will re-distribute his energy within the different egos at one given time. Thus the most important aspect for the use of the egogram in modern psychotherapy is that, it gives an evaluation of the distribution of energy in the personality, and it can be used by the individual to show how much energy is needed to be re-distributed to other parts of the personality to make positive change. It is simple to construct and use, for example, firstly, draw a horizontal line on a piece of paper. Underneath, label the five ego states – adapted child, free child, adult, controlling parent and nurturing parent.

Think of yourself at this particular time or at a specific moment in the past, draw whatever you feel is the most energised part of your personality, and draw it with a vertical line. (This will be your highest column.)

Now, using your intuition, draw the lowest energised part of your personality as it is in comparison with the other. (This will be the lowest column.)

Then fill in the other states as you see them in comparison with the above.

Having done the exercise, you should have now an egogram of the distribution of your energy within your personality at a given time. This will help you see where you might need at certain times to re-distribute your energy to help solve problems in life or therapy.
