Shy Cookie VS the BOSS

I was laying on my bed doing my nails when I started to wonder: Do I have 2 personalities? I thought of this because during my job interview yesterday the manager had mentioned that outside of the workplace he was very anti-social but once in the work place he was friendly. I thought "That sounds a lot like me". Then I got to thinking am I one person with two different personalities? Is there this shy person that can transform into this confident boss? No. Not two personalities, just two parts of my psychic apparatus. Freud said that in every one's psyche there's the the id, the ego, and the super-ego...well I have the id, the shy cookie, and the BOSS.

Freud has been proven WRONG in a lot of his theories, but this one hasn't been disproven. In fact, it makes a lot of sense.

So, here's me:

The Shy Cookie isn't really that shy, just a tad bit anti-social. She doesn't want to be bothered and is often in her own world. I merge into Shy Cookie mode mostly when I'm shopping. That's probably why I'd rather shop alone. I'm in the zone and I don't want people to take me out of it.

The BOSS lady is confident. She walks around as if she owns the place yet she doesn't come off as being arrogant. She's very social and approachable. She's eager to help people and takes a lot of pride in her work. ImBOSS when I'm at work or at school.

[ I haven't been BOSS at the job I have now though..perhaps because I'm way out of my comfort zone at that place and I just don't care. No Worries...My new job starts next week. ]

And then there's the id. We all have one.

The id is a mass of instinctive drives and impulses, and demands immediate satisfaction. It's responsible for our basic drives such as food, water, sex, and basic impulses. It is amoral and egocentric, ruled by the pleasure–pain principle; it is without a sense of time, completely illogical, primarily sexual, infantile in its emotional development, and will not take "no" for an answer. It is regarded as the reservoir of the libido or "instinctive drive to create".
