    What are ego boundaries?

    And how do they get infringed upon?

    ...someone who keeps measuring himself against others...
    That's an interesting one.

    I'll have to think about that one.

    It's problematic in cases where people have to rely on each other and share resources...
    [Sorry to ask so many questions, but I'm genuinely curious how you see things...]

    Why is that?

    What problems does "it" create?

    Talking too much and too loud to the point of suppressing others' voice and not noticing or caring about that..

    Mental boundaries within which you can exist as yourself...and express your own voice and identity..

    You become fearful of exerting them...even when they are not offensive in nature...

    Discontent, stress, fear, more risk of crime and violence, certain members' voice becoming suppressed and less active in the group...disparity in resource sharing, monopolizing of resources and power, slavery, fascism, dictatorship...a less synergetic, less harmonious and less overally-efficient collective system...

    There's this dude at my work who thinks he's the centre of the Universe (if people are happy, it's because he's handsome and charming, if people are unhappy, it's because they're jealous/resentful of how handsome and charming he is).

    And while he's relatively harmless (he occasionally steals my thunder), I'll call him by a similar sounding but incorrect name from time to time. If he corrects me, I'll act all bashful and apologize, but I'll still make sure I get it wrong a few weeks later. It works very well, because I have been there a very long time and have a bit of status. His face gets all red. I was inspired by Ron Swanson:

    No more relevant than a double post.

    Thank you for your response, yeghor.

    Seems a bit limited in scope, but ok.

    Hmm, ok.

    What if you are just fearful and don't have good ego boundaries?

    Is it other peoples' fault if you can't exist as yourself, express your own voice and identity, when around them?

    Once again, what makes one be the victim, as opposed to the perpretrator?

    What if one is just excessively fearful, and then blames others for their excessive fearfulness?

    Man, that's a lot to be blaming on egotism.

    You think any of your feelings around this might have to do with Critical Parent Fi?

    I don't know if @Article Poster is an admin, tho, anymore, or someone related to 'Personality Type In Depth'...

    Anyway, having been called a narcissist a number of times, I've actually done a reasonable amount of research into it.
    We pull in RSS feeds from a few sites including Personality Type In Depth. Article Poster is just an ID I created for the things to show up under.

    For the record since you mentioned it, you don't strike me as narcissistic. I think people use that term too lightly today. The one person I've known who I believe truly suffered from NPD was destructive to everyone around her. She had a highly inflated verbalized opinion of herself, was only able to accept positive strokes, blamed others for every negative circumstance in her life and wasn't able to accept any constructive feedback. She was poison.

    I do subscribe to what @Jaguar said in a sense that I tend to admire people who don't brag about their accomplishments. Humility is a virtue. That being said, there is something to be said about communicating. I (again) learned this the hard way last fall on this forum. There is something to be said about visibility and people don't always know what you are doing or how you are contributing unless you communicate with them.
