What is Ideal Concept of a human according to Plato in The Republic?

After reading Plato's republic I assumed Plato, (as an author [ not socrates character]), is trying to tell the reader that his ideal concept of a person is one that is aware of his human needs, yet does not happen to indulge in them all the time, but only when its a good time I suppose. However, this thesis kinda seems to be a review of the character Socrates in the book.

So my question to you is, what is the actual Ideal concept of a human being presented from Plato's point of view as an author of the republic, and not from socrates character.

A successful research paper depends on the topic chosen by the writer. Choosing the right research topic requires a lot of time, and many college and university student spend a lot of the time researching which topic is appropriate for the academic paper. Everyone undergoes the same process of finding the most suitable topic starting from high school to Ph.D. level students. It is for this reason that teachers opt to assign students assignments with open topics so that they can research their topics. General directions are the only instructions they receive, and the rest is left for them to research. This is tiring, and time-consuming.
