The ego state model


In TA terms, we introject, or take in, our parents and keep a psychological copy of them for future reference. 

Often, this helps us to take in useful rules and regulations, knowledge about the world, how to look after ourselves and other people, etc. However, if our parents gave us the “wrong” information, or lived by not-very-useful rules themselves we end up introjecting something that doesn’t work particularly well for us later on.
