Cheers. They are Sanders on sale at the moment. What I really love are the single monks that are slightly swept back. But, of course, these feature more in the high end manufacturers which are out of my reach.
Saw someone at work with single monks today. I've always loved single monks but have never thought I could pull it off (so to speak).
Achievable? Acceptable? Possible?
Or would I come off looking like some sort of egomaniac?
I know, I wasn't questioning what you said. Ego is a common genesis for positive social change, no doubt, but that is just ego.My question (again not disputing that ego can and does lead to good) is can an egomaniac (or someone with narcissistic personality disorder), by definition, have any sense of benevolence or the greater good?
Yes, but don't you, by definition, cease to be an egomaniac if your motivation is a non-self serving benevolent legacy?Is there a clinical psychologist in the house?No doubt you don't get anywhere near a seat in Parliament without a hefty ego.
Don't agree with this. It's semantics, and probably pedantry, but there is a nuance that's missing.I've met plenty of pollies over the years, most of the best have ego, drive and self belief, but also a selflessness and self awareness. Egomaniacs by definition lack self awareness, don't they?For some the ego is motivated by achieving change for a particular perceived general good.Not sure if this makes sense. SF psychobabble.
