True self (also known as real selfauthentic selforiginal self and vulnerable self) and false self (also known as fake selfidealized selfsuperficial self and pseudo self) are psychological concepts, originally introduced into psychoanalysis in 1960 by Donald Winnicott.[1] 

Winnicott used true self to describe a sense of self-based on spontaneous authentic experience and a feeling of being alive, having a real self.[2] The false self, by contrast, is a defensive façade,[1] which, in extreme cases, could leave its holders lacking spontaneity and feeling dead and empty, behind a mere appearance of being real.[1]

Winnicott saw the true self as rooted from early infancy in the experience of being alive, including blood pumping and lungs breathing – what Winnicott called simply being.[3] Out of this, the baby creates the experience of a sense of reality, a sense that life is worth living. The baby's spontaneous, nonverbal gestures derive from that instinctual sense,[4] and if responded to by the mother, become the basis for the continuing development of the true self.
