In an Indifference map, there are various Indifference curves[ICs]. These ICs show different level of satisfaction of the consumers. They are also formed with different level of taste and preferences and also the budget of the consumer. So obviously, the highest IC will represent the highest satisfaction the consumer can get.

Assumptions: 1] Consumer is indifferent against all the points on the IC.
                      2] All points offer equal satisfaction to the consumer.
                      3] The IC is governed by the assumtion of monotonic preferences, which means that consumer get more satisfaction with more consumtion of a commodity.
