It comes to a point where I keep on wondering whether I am such an egoistic person or not. It begin to bugging me ever since that day and wonder why only now someone whom I barely know telling me about this.
I was curious to find out the real meaning of ego so I search for answers in Oxford Dictionary. From the point of Metaphysics ego mean a conscious thinking subject. From the point of psychol, it means the part of the mind that reacts to reality and has a sense of individuality. And the other point of it is about self-esteem.
So when it comes to egoism; the meaning is simply an ethical theory that treats self interest as the foundation of morality. It is also a systematic selfishness and self-opinionatedness.
Hhhmmm…when come to think of it, being labeled as ‘an egoistic person’ is not bad after all. *wink wink*
Do they look like egoistic person??
I take comments positively; be it about my career, my personality, my life, be it whatever as long as it’s a constructive comments. I believe learning is a life-long process and by taking comments constructively will help a lot for room of improvements.
On the other hand, sometimes we can’t be too judgmental on other’s personal character or on other’s personal life because our judgments might be wrong or it might be right sometime. I guess it’s better to know an individual well before coming with such impression.
I personally felt being ‘ego’ is necessary whenever it is applicable. Don’t you think so??
