FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION THAT. In those same pages of PT concerning difficult people, one was identified as The Egoist, in which two of the four traits, "unable to compromise" and "takes everything personally" conspire against them in a damaging circular relationship.

They use the term "entitlement" in describing them.

A person who is convinced his perspectives, beliefs, and values are right cannot tolerate any conciliatory conversations.

What separates this person from say you or me - who can be at times quite egotistical, is this:

Something happens and we ego-involved and lose perspective, but with the truly egoic, such a response is independent of the stimulus.

Interesting! Thanks for the addition :)

Oh man! What a recipe for personal disaster.
