When threatened, the Ego will use every trick it has to hide it's identity.. Including Humour, lol... Ego, like the Devil we don't know, prefers not to be known.

Seriously though, I think your Ego is probably half as big as mine..
Yove made 2318 posts, and only have 444 likes..
Me (showing my ego here), have made 1191 posts, and have 824 likes..

Edited to add: Just gave you another like for your collection to give your ego a boost.. lol.
Oh, and in my world, the smaller the Ego the better.. Sucks to be me..

You just vaguely hurt my ego I just checked out my likes and I only got 300 something... I knew it was low but golly... :-/.

I'll add that Ego is a much needed protector of the bodily desires and physical well being,  just like hunger but  I don't think we can ever have it 100% in control and be able survive in the world....unless you end up being a martyr!

At the other end of the spectrum  I see people who are very egotistical and full of pride and feel sorry for them because they are so unware of the peace you have when you do get it under control no matter what the enviroment. They will have a tradgic realization  and deep despair someday because of their over rated blind faith in themselves.  Life is chance with only a small measure of influence toward the outcome.

Oh wow! To me, that shows that I'm probably spending way too much time on here and have no life. Damnit-damnit!


EDIT: Wait, wait! I just looked at Today's Top Posters. I'm nowhere on that list, so I feel better now. Phew! False alarm. Still no life, though.

When I log each morning my first glance as at the notifications at the top of the screen.. That's my ego going "oh yes, people like and accept me" and when I look in to see the notifications are only people quoating my posts to tell me what a moron I am my Ego takes a beating...

But like you say, Some Ego is needed, i think..  I think there is a healthy level of Ego.. Or healthy/productive ego and a unhealthy destructive type Ego.. I might be wrong, but I think that identifying Ego and getting to know it, is the first step towards removing it or at least having your true self empowered enough to control it.

I remember reading something before about the difference between "Big(Inflated) Egos" and "Strong Egos".  Something to do with the whole, "The bigger they are the harder they fall" thing but adding onto it, that "Strong Egos" (which contain more balance) are generally better at dealing with a fall. I'll have a look for it tomorrow.

My question is how does someone's ego differentiate from someone's personality? How do they influence or reflect eachother?

I feel like ego is a separation. From others and from the self, but essentially we all have one so how separate can it really be?

Tee hee..
What do you think?

I think you define yourself by your actions..
I've not been involved with many of your posts, but I think your Ego is kind of Aloof most of the time..
Speeking from one (alter-ego) Professor to another, lol, your Ego is easily bruised when someone points out that your facts are wrong, which is why you spend a lot of time making sure your facts are correct before posting them..

Am I Right?

Quite right.

How is it that you seem so emotionally connected to others?

Interesting social experiment Pro T.

But, did you consider that the 'like' button only came into existence about April last year or so? I'm way up the 'like' scale too, probably only because I joined in May, 2012.

As an aside, Hasina would be in the #1 spot of course. She's attractive, young, smart, witty and artistic. But she's also not very contoversial. (Sorry to appear to be speaking about you behind your back Hasina.)

Edit: Pro. Buzzkill is a perfect example, 1338 posts, but a member for over 4 years. (Well, that and Professor Buzzkill, your user name isn't that friendly, sorry). :)

Then again, along those lines, maybe the reason I'm more 'liked' than I should be is because my username is 'Likely Guy'? (I didn't do that on purpose, by the way, I live in a small town called 'Likely', and I'm a 'Guy' - I'm not very original, I know.)

Actually this isn't a social experiment.
Nor is collecting peoples likes my real intention or hidden agenda behind this thread.

I'm genuinely interested in peoples Ego's and how others percieve themselves.. It's something we do every day and fail to analyse. We live out our lives day in and day out and don't even ask the most imporant question of all which is "Who am I really?"  "What defines who I am?" Those kind of questions reveal our Ego's and true selves..

Come on. I joined years before the like system! I realise that im not entirely popular on this site because of some strong views or controversial posts i have made, and i have to admit that since the like system my ego has taken a bit of a dive.

Especially when you make a post that you think deserves a like and no one will oblige you. But i am happy in my real life and have an interest in the unexplained so where else will i hang out online?

Edit to add. I wonder if the like system has killed off a few members who realised they weren't quite as popular online as their ego thought?
