We all have an ego but some individuals have one that is astronomical in size.  Very specific personalities are the owners of this inflated self worth. Of course, the first type that comes to mind is the narcissist.  They believe they are right about everything all the time.  They are sure they are smarter than everyone else. The egotistical individual is all about material items.  The more they have the better.  Even if their income is low, whatever they purchase they brag about even though it may not be the top of the line luxury vehicle.  They are also a huge fan of gossip.  They seem to thrive on it.  While the rest of us prefer to ignore it, mind our own business and not participate, they dive right in as it was a swimming pool. I think one of the more difficult traits about the giant ego is that they continually interrupt.  You cannot finish a sentence.  There are people who do not have this trait but do interrupt primarily because in their life they were never able to finish a sentence or express their thoughts fully. It makes you feel as if you are interrupted so much when speaking that your thoughts just don’t matter. The egomaniac believes that they hold a position of power.  There are certain cases where this is actually true such as in the workplace, lawsuits, in the home, and with family and friends.  They literally laud it over everyone. Above anything else they hate losing. You can’t  play a simple board game without them becoming upset if they don’t win.  It is also true in almost anything in life.  If a wife leaves them, they literally seek revenge.  In the workplace if they lose out to a co-worker, they not only become upset but again seek revenge so that they will come out victorious. How do you feel about this type of person?  Do you know anyone? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
