On the Id, ego, and superego

Egotistical people suffer from an inflated sense of self-importance. The Id is all about oneself; the superego is all about the community, whereas the ego is the balance between the Id and superego.

Egotistical people think that the world revolves around them. They have a high percentage of Id in their personality. This inflated sense of self-importance leads them to look down upon others. Imagine a combination of little knowledge and an elevated sense of self-worth. This combination is deadly and is perhaps responsible for many suicides.

The recipe to becoming successful is to lower one's inflated sense of self-worth and to care about the desires, feelings, and aspirations of others as well as to help them in their path to success. The greater the number of people an individual helps, the greater his chances of success.
