This is perhaps a true definition of self-confidence: the ability to look at the world without the need to look for instances that pleases your ego.
Hello, I came across this sentence and wondered what "that" indicated in the text above. At first I thought the relative pronoun "that" indicated "instances." But due to the verb "pleases," i think "that" might indicate "the need," because of the verb "pleases."
If so, the sentence above means: without the need which(=the need) pleases your ego.
But for me, it doesn't make sense.
Could anyone help me? The original sentence in a part of the article below.
