Many people have a tendency conflate cognitive capacity with personality traits.

A disgusting personality or repulsive disposition doesn't always indicate a person has diminished capacity.

Sometimes such traits just indicate that the person is a world class jerk.

DW and I discussed the matter of the president's ego recently and decided that from a Freudian perspective, his personality does not demonstrate evidence of ego or superego. Rather, we decided, his personality is a pure expression of the Id.

From a Freudian perspective, anyway.
