Allocentric

To be allocentric describes a person who is completely focused on others and their concerns rather than on themselves. In doing so, the individual and their concerns are minimalized and the entire focus is placed on the group. This is referred to psychological collectivism. Some scholars propose that allocentrism is a form of personal collectivism. The opposite of allocentrism is idiocentrism which is psychological individualism.
