Who is an Egoistic Person?

A little bit of narcissism results in social success and overall happiness and is therefore a good characteristic. A bit more of narcissism results in more social success and gets a person to climb the career ladder. A lot more of narcissism results in success but also gets the person to be extremely sensitive to critics and sarcasm, and can therefor never be truly happy.

An egoistic person can never be happy nor can he/she make his/her partner happy and will always expect perfection from his/her children.

Self centered and close minded people are all over the place. These people often misinterpret whatever you say into something that they think goes against them and their religion/country/race. No matter how you explain, they will not listen and continue to “champion” their point/cause. These people like to believe that everything they think/do/say is right even when it is very wrong. You can try to reason out with them but they would only get angry and hold on to any shards of the same point that you have already broken.

These people never ask or check if their intepretation of the matter is correct.  They just do what they think is right and what makes them happy. It is funny how they consider that whatever they say or do is always correct and that everyone else is always wrong.  They just don't seem to understand that someone else can have a different point of view. They think they have the best and most absolute point of view. Points and views can only be tested by dicussion with someone else. Until you see both ways completely.

Egoistic people can be of any age, race or religion. No specfics. But one thing they all have in common is their holier-than-thou attitude and getting defensive when someone challenges their views. They are everywhere..............

Yes, I'm dealing with such kind of person. Who is none other than my father-in-law. He is highly highly highly an egoistic person. Nobody can say that what will he think & what will he say. He just want to be superior all the time & shows that no one can be right except him. And about me, he has his own misconceptions.Whatever he has to think, he thinks..If I try to explain, he never listens..

I'm really fed up with this person. He has made my life hell..Now I'm just thinking to avoid him all the time. He is a torture.There is no respect in my heart for him..

I just can't tolerate him..I am bearing him since last two years.Now its out of limit.. please suggest something if you can...

After reading your analysis I've understood that I'm an egoistic person. I'm sorry for who has to live with me, but this is just the way I am.. Egoistic people (me too) isn't even happy, we always are unsatisfied.. It's difficult to live in this way

(Sorry for my english, I am not good at all)

This is a great post, I have been a very egoistic person as the result of worshipping an egoistic father and emulating that image. Now I have found myself and although it is very hard to break the habit of narcissism, I am only allowing enough for what makes a person human and healthy. :)

Egoism is overcome by following Jesus Christ and obeying His call to overcome selfishnss and worldliness. The egoist can do better by showing concern over other persons' needs and interests.
