Egoic Bloating is a pathological and artificial bloating of the Bodily Ego. It is represented by unwarranted beliefs in one's intellectual, emotional, evolutionary, or spiritual superiority.
Egoic bloating, which can leave a person believing they are special/chosen/saviours, sometimes/often occurs following powerful Connection Experiences.
Individuals whose Bodily Ego is damaged from toxic socialization experiences, individual's with low/damage self-esteem, low/damage self-image, who who have adopted twisted Book of Power archetypes, are particularly susceptible to egoic bloating.
