The transactional analysis comes originally from psychology and it is intended to help people deal with private (and business) relationship professionally. So transactions are all social connections that we have in our lives. They determines which part of personality dominates and what you’ve brought with your form your childhood. This means the transactional analysis reveals the personality and the communication concept.
There are three areas of personality, the parent-ego, the adult-self, and, finally, the childhood-self.
The parent-ego covers the first 5-6 years of life. It will identify which behaviors of our parents have been anchored in us as life motto.
The adult-self emerges, when we realize, that we can determine our behavior and our own thinking.
Finally, the childhood-self shows up the experiences, feelings and understandings of our childhood. It comes either with an adapted or natural behavior.
