Interesting reading the responses here...
Here's a little bit of what I've gathered; having recently hit a terrible negative peak in my life and then swiftly grown up in the months following.

Men are variables, I can see in everyday life around me that men only differ in balance between ego and the heart.

Allow me to elaborate (if not, skip to TL;DR):
-I find, the emotionally undamaged (everyone is prone to emotional damage, be it by break ups or other such things) tend to rest a lot more on their ego, this usually comes out as some social extreme, be it bragging, high confidence, showing off and the like.

-The other end of the stick are the emotionally damaged people, these people rely a lot more on what their heart tells them; this leads them to being publicly rather quiet or reserved; but once they open up to someone their real self shows (often in the form of emotional flood).

-Finally; then there's the midpoint, someone like myself; having gone through emotional pain, heartbreaks and the like; the ego becomes of no importance and the heart dictates that a simple image of a "well-rounded" person has to be maintained; however if the heart desires something, the ego will not be a limiter over any actions, thus the person can behave very strangely indeed (obsessive over that which the heart desires, almost like an unstoppable force).

TL;DR:

Everyone feels things, everyone has emotions and memories and weaknesses. It is the bad happenings that shape people.

Something like that... I'm bad at TL;DR.

I completely agree with this,
I would have to consider myself "the other end of the stick"

A very fragile ego? Sounds pathetic to me.

I'm going to take a third option and say it depends. Every person is different and we thus can't apply some absolute answer to the ego of every single human being. However, I would argue that all human beings are prone to pride in some form or another.

Don't ask another question just to make you look smart, please.


Sounds like your ego is fragile. :/


Agreed. The guy brought up an interesting point. That's his opinion of the matter (that he disagrees or is doubtful).
I also think this is too generalised and poorly understood as a concept to simply agree or disagree to.
I'm not sure what you're doing by being aggressive and rude. Maybe you should've specified that you had an extremely fragile ego.

I no idea what those things are. Maybe I used to be fragile and such. But I got hurt some much by people, that I stop caring or feeling anything. So when people are mean to me. I just don't get hurt. I can get mad or such. But hurt ? haha no anymore.

Because your mother and father had sex. Now answer the question.

Directly on the subject of ego, I do carry myself with a large degree of pride in who I am. I do try very hard to not let that affect my abilities to stay objective and rational, but it doesn't always work. I'll be the first to admit I come across as a real dick once in while, and though I usually try to justify my outbursts by saying that a person has pushed me to the limit of what I consider acceptable behavior, I know that it's just me being weak willed and letting them get the worst out of me.

I try not to do things that way, but I absolutely hate people who run around being an asshole just because they think no one will stop them. Honestly, I have to walk away sometimes to avoid a major incident.

Tl;dr version: I try to be nice and open minded, but some people need an ass beating or kimura to snub that filthy attitude.
