Egocentric Thought And Thinking

Egocentric thought or thinking refers to an inability to see a situation or event from another person's point of view. Although this is normal in children who are in the pre-operational stage of thought (ages 2-7) it can affect individuals at any age. Egocentrism creates a self-centered world view in which a person is unable to consider other people's feelings.
