Phrenology: Self-esteem

Self-esteem is the faculty which stands for self-love and dignity. An underdeveloped Self-esteem causes a lack of self-confidence, a lack of pride and a servile docility. 
An overdeveloped Self-esteem stands for egotism, prejudice, self-centredness, arrogance and disdain. 
In moderate development, it confers self-confidence and self-reliance, with a sense of personal responsibility and dignity, and a proper sense of pride. 


Self-esteem is located on the upper back of the skull, at an angle of approximately 45¡ drawn from the aural conduct.
