|Characteristics of self-absorption are most likely to become apparent as a result of interactions with others. If you begin to become more aware of the nature and development of conversations you have with others, you can get a sense for whether you are self-absorbed. Self-absorbed people tend to go into social interactions wanting to come off as interesting, charming, cute, or somehow exceptional. People who are self-absorbed tend to distrust or dismiss feedback from others. While it's generally a good idea not to let negative feedback get you down, letting negative feedback get to you can damage your work and personal relationships if you never listen to others or respect their opinions. Notice if one of your first responses to feedback is getting defensive or angry rather than attempting to understand another’s perspective.
