All my friend's and family that I correspond with, all tell me I'm on one. What do they mean by this?

Thanks

Don't worry. You aren't on one or you would never have admitted you didn't know what one was.

You are correct of course. He's just a psychopath.

Actually, an "ego trip" has nothing to do with knowledge. It is a term used to identify people who seem to possess an egotistical ethical framework, that is being they feel what is moral and ethical ( two differing terms) is that in which is self-serving. Basically, most politicians seem to be egotistical when they should be utilitarian is a plausible illustration. There are several accepted ethical frameworks and egotistical is the most common one for an explanation of self centered individuals.

I think the phrase "being a legend in your own mind" might sum it up in laymans terms.

No, I will simplify it like this, if a man buys a corvette and justifies the purchase simply because he wants it then he has made an egotistical decision. However, if a lady buys a minivan because it is safe, fuel efficient, and financially reasonable then she is displaying utilitarian principles for her family by taking other perspectives into account. However, after years of misuse, definitions alter and I believe that maybe the case here concerning the term "ego".

Not as bad as all the politicians he owns. Norquist should get under any sane persons skin.
