Ego is a component of personality that determines reality principles while the id is mainly about the satisfying drives and include the pleasure principle. In the beginning of the movie, the Grinch's ego is unbalanced and is soley controlled by his id. When his needs weren't sastify, in one scene, he would binge eat because he was "bored". His ego was also controlled by his id when he decided to leave Cindy Lou in parcel sorter. After witnessing the residents coming together and sing, the Grinch realizes that Christmas doesn't revolve around the presents and the materialistics materials. His superego kicked in and influenced to think about the morally correct thing to do and returned all the presents to the Who. This shows that his ego is no longer mainly controlled by id, and it's now balanced out by between superego and id. The superego is the part of the personality that contain all of our internalized ideals, morals, and provide a conscience.
