The Career Disappointers

 

VIII. THE EXALTER EGO

A man gets into his brand new, top-of-the-range Range Rover with cream leather seats. He dons a pair of Gucci shades, rolls down the windows, yanks the music up to eleven and speeds down the road. Each time he overtakes another car, he lets out a jubilant roar: “Out of the way, loser!”. The adrenaline pumping through his system, he soon hits the motorway and lets rip. But he doesn’t have any friends.

 

DEFINITION: The Exalter Ego represents the very Celtic Tiger temptation to exalt oneself at the expense of others and of one’s empathy with others. In its quest for an alienated and narrow form of success, The Exalter Ego performs a sad reduction of the self to competitive and narcissistic categories. As such, it usually masks profound insecurities about true self-worth.

DISAPPOINTER MODE: over-competitiveness, lack of personal or professional ethics, money-madness, contempt for anyone perceived as weak or useless.

MOTTO: ‘Baby I can drive my car, and baby I love me. Beep beep'm beep beep yeah.’

APPOINTER MODE: ambition, healthy competitiveness, refusal to sell oneself short or simply ‘fit in’, entrepreneurial dynamism.
