    I have decided my values are empathy, creativity and presence.

    And I wonder what are the values of my id. But I have strong reason to think my id values attention, sex and food

    I find the values of my id are sometimes in conflict with my the values of my super ego, so thank heavens I have a strong ego to mediate.

    So we might say my true values are a trade-off between the values of my super ego and my id.

    So my ego's life task is to reconcile attention, sex and food with empathy, creativity and presence.

    Do you have any tips?

    I value a lot of things.

    Truth, Love, kindness, reason, creativity, imagination, friendship, family, purpose, freedom, fun ...and a bunch of other things.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    But the problem is that some values reinforce other values and some values conflict with other values.

    So how do we deal with conflicting values?

    Perhaps values are not the last word.

    Did you even think about those values, or did you just list what you think you should value based on what other people expect of you?

    Now I know what they mean by inferior Fe. I hope you use Ti instead where you can... I doubt your feelings would serve you very well if you honestly value all those things equally.

    I value the pursuit of happiness in a way that doesn't require me to step on other people's toes too much.

    "Too much" = causing physical or psychological trauma or turning society against me
