    I suspect that what self-centered people perceive as laziness mostly has to do with other people not doing what they want. It doesn't mean the person is not intellectually engaged and active.
    I personally think that self-centeredness is a deficit akin to color-blindness. Since the self-centered turn up in all cultures and populations, they're obviously useful to society. At a minimum, whom would givers give to, if there were no takers?
    Willard was in error with his taker/maker frame, unless "takers" refer to people who take orders and "makers" are people who coerce others into following their orders.
    Why those who demand look down on people who create is a puzzlement.

      Fascinating to attempt to discover the  reasons behind the actions and which came first - the chicken or the egg.

      As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy

      printing correction that the George Bush in J. Edgar Hoover's memo was a different George Bush. Or that Lee Harvey Oswald, despite his numerous close connections in the intelligence community was a troubled loner. That the celebrity guest list in Dallas was a coincidence. Resistance to facts giving a life of alibis.
