Interesting. That will depend how you define ''I'', the sum of all ideias in our brain? All the memories? But we cannot remember all things we have in our brain I suppose, so, the ''I'' is always changing when we forget? Our we should define ''I'' as the core memories that defines personality?. There are a lot of psychologic forces operating inside us and we don't notice, because are uncouscious. Some people are more aware of those influences, other don't.
If you think well, every day you learn something, so, the ''I'' is never constant under the first definiton. There is no ''I''. Is like the old question about time: '' If the past is gone, the future is yet to come and the presente takes no time at all, how can time exist?''
''I'' only exist in a fraction of a second.
Also, we react under the pressure of the enviromment...is the enviroment that will influence our behavior I suppose, so you don't no how you will reacted is certain situations.
That ego, id stuff of Freud was never confirmed, or am I wrong?
But, yes, it's a good speculation to say that a lot of people make na imagem of the ''I'' that is very distorted
