    People with no ego are ones whom I'll sacrifice myself for, definitely wouldn't place them as 'just a friend'.

    I think you are confusing ego with egocentrism.
    The id is actually the selfish part of a person.

    Then you're showing a rather fundamental misunderstanding of what the word "ego" means. May want to read a few books.

    I have NEVER yet met someone with no ego.......I think it is impossible unless you were raised in a box.

    Exactly. There is no such thing. Similarly, it's not a big coincidence that so many people are so attracted to narcissists.

    Well I always thought that one's ego was their sense of self, and what separates us from animals. I should read up on it again. I admit that I'm not too familiar on it anymore.

    The development of the ego is a very essential part of personality development.

    Yes, some are confusing Narcissim with Narcisstic Disorder and Ego with Egocentrical.

    This is what I love about ENA. I can ask a question like this and people actually answer. Normally when I ask a question like this in real life I get a blank stare. hehehehe
