Using others to reinforce my definition of myself

— Discovering the psychopath in me

I got into an argument.

I knew the person I was speaking with held strong beliefs that contradicted mine.

It happened in a group conversation. At a social gathering, she came over with friendly intentions not knowing what awaited her.

I patiently let her share her view point to the group, ready to pounce. A rebuttal to her beliefs was prepared before she even knew what we were talking about.

I salivated over the the opportunity to tell her how wrong she is.

I won. She felt less sure of herself. The confrontation was all for my ego.

It feels bad.
