I need to translate a word combination 'ego-driven insecurity' into my language, but what is ego-driven? The Babylon dictionary gives a definition 'the need of one individual to persuade another to a particular point of view and feel satisfaction in having done so". How to say it simpler? I can't find an equivalent in my language, maybe there are any synonyms to help me?

A very closely related concept to the ideas conveyed by "ego-driven" is that of egoism:

  • the habit of valuing everything only in reference to one's personal interest (opposed to altruism).
