Ego and Self

I came across and read this today about the ego and self. It got me think about my own ego and wondering; what is my self? Where does my ego stop and self begin? Would exposing your ego cause you to not fit into society even more?

I think a lot of this is influenced by modern psychology and Eastern thought. However there should be a Jewish point of view on the ego and self as well. I like to think that the self is part of the soul or is the soul. Perhaps finding out the toxic parts of the ego will help improve overall stress and the ability to relate to others.
