Secondary process

Secondary process (in psychodynamic approach) is mental activity and thinking characteristic of the ego and influenced by the demands of the environment. It is characterized by organization, systematization, intellectualization, and similar processes leading to logical thought and action in adult life. Innovation and creativity is thought of as a combination of the primary and secondary processes.
