Let us see, how Ego works:
I, in my daily life, almost constantly, think about my plans. The plans, are decided, as per my desires! To complete the plan, I arrange to get the work done, instead of doing myself. For that, I instruct/order available ( maybe family member or friend or a hired person ) person, to do the part of work and report. In the course of action, the opposite person, suggests something or an alternative way, for achieving the Target, fast and smoothly. I find the suggestion, to be correct; but I am not ready to accept! Why? The acceptance will reduce, my role and importance, in the completion of the work! I try to divert, the line of action, with disagreement. The person tries to convince, the correctness and importance, of the suggestion. Feeling humiliated, I suppress his attempt, by any possible way! And
And, if the opposite person, succeeds in convincing, I get irritated internally! I become restless, having found a situation, where, my role or importance, is on the lower side! Even jealousy flashes, in my Mind! I can not accept. I can not tolerate. I must eliminate this! I have only way then! And I Cancel the work, on the border of completion and become ready, to bear the Losses- Monetory as well as of relations! I can see only MYSELF at the winning site!
