Egocentric: 1) dwelling upon one’s self or upon one’s own personal interests almost to the exclusion of everything else; viewing everything in relation to oneself; self-centered. 2) in philosophy, existing only as conceived in the individual mind. Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary Today, be aware of some of the ways conditioning results in egocentricity. Example: I’m in a hurry; I shouldn’t have to wait for slow people. (Extra credit: Remember that conditioning and egocentricity is universal and not to be taken personally.)
