Intrapsychic is a psychological term referring to internal psychological processes of the individual. These processes can be positive (egosyntonic), negative (egodystonic) or neutral.

An example of positive intrapsychic process might be the development of higher level social skills acquired through education or specific social contact, like working in a corporate environment. An example of negative intrapsychic process might be stress over social responsibilities, conflict with social mores, conflict of morals, or a crisis of faith. A neutral intrapsychic process might be characterized by the aspects of ego integrity that define the personality; a love of animals, a dislike of broccoli, a preference for historical novels versus murder mysteries, etc.
