Hi guys, i was wondering if there's such a word that describe an obsession towards one's own work. For example, if i were to write and publish a book that i think was the greatest book ever written, and i read it over everyday, complimenting myself on what a great job i did. Or if i was an architect and i designed a building that i think was just pure brillant, and i get the itch to look at it every so often. You guys get the point
An appropriate compound adjective would be "self-obsessed".
On the same train of thought:
Haha thanks for the fast replies guys! And thanks for reminding me to capitalize "I" :)
Yes, I've thought about using the word "self-obsessed," but that is sort of too general.. I mean, one can be self-obsessed with one's own appearance (I believe there's a word but I can't recall it, maybe you guys can help me recall?), etc...
None of the words so far are specifically to do with being obsessed with one's own work and I really can't think of one.
What if he's just fulfilled by his work?
In any case, he may have delusions of grandeur.
