You have a very well developed ego and you regard yourself as above average in intelligence, whether or not this is actually the case. Although your confidence is high, so is your sense of entitlement and superiority. You are easy to take offense at any perceived insult, or even at times, simple humor. The end result of this attitude if taken to extreems will be a sense of isolation and confused wonder at the perceived lack of appreciation from those around you.
You have attempted to improve yourself through self-negation and a perseverance through hard work and the avoidance of mindless pleasures. Often you will seem overly restrained in demeanor. You crave admiration to a point that is often unhealthy, however a strong belief in yourself means that you will often be quite stubborn. Unfortunately, the lack of perceived admiration has left you in a distracted and uncertain state, one in which decision making is avoided for fear of the repercussions.
