There are two types of consequences that you will need to be concerned with: natural and logical. 
Both of these types can be positive or negative. To help you get a handle on what each type means, I’ll define them and give both a positive and negative example.

Puzzle box and animal behaviour

According to Freud's sigmund the founder of this model   the id is  part of the mind that contains sexual and aggressive drives and hidden memories, the super-ego operates as a moral conscience(on shen), and the ego is the realistic part that mediates between the desires of the id and the super-ego.

Although each part of the personality comprises unique features, they interact to form a whole, and each part makes a relative contribution to an individual's behavior.
