Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In the final analysis, human decisions are informed by the Cognitive Systems but made by the Emotive Systems.  Why?  Because Emotive, also called Affective, Processing Systems are where the 'Should-Do' is finalized.  

See "Descartes Error" and other works by Hanna and Antonio Damasio.

To expect MPs to make only rational decisions is to expect the impossible, things have gone beyond that.

So that's how their teaching Freudian psychoanslysis these days, eh? "Cognitive systems" (ego), "Affective systems" (id), and "Should-do" WHERE? (super-ego).

There's a diagram in The Ego and The Id in case you're wondering. Like a ven diagram, except for the blob bit for super-ego.

I know, I know. Needs moar fMRI.

Yet there it is:
reference to experimental observations ("neuro science")
of peripheral, somatic, and autonomic expressions (a/k/a "behaviors"),
produced by physiologic interactions contained to
anatomical structures of the human nervous system (taxonomy),
whose theoretical purposes are communicated by categorical analogies (semantic distinction)--
not one but three domains of conscious and unconscious significance only to other human beings.

Freud-Complete Works, "The Ego and The Id". pp 3967-4011

Coincidence? Non! Neologism.

Freud was a charlatan and psychoanalysis is pseudo-scientific poppycock.

Freud: The Making of an Illusion

Actual science:

Emotion and decision making

Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain

Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst
