How to use "Self-absorption" in context?

Self-absorption, or inward focus, is a cognitive distortion that afflicts individuals who excessively focus their thoughts, feelings, and actions on themselves. This can lead to a lack of self-awareness, and an inability to reflect upon and appreciate the nature and uniqueness of others. It can also lead to a decreased sense of empathy and social connectedness.

Self-absorption can have harmful consequences for both individuals and groups. When individuals are excessively focused on themselves, they may become self-righteous, selfish, and elitist. This can create divisions and tensions within societies, and lead to dangerous dogmatism and inflexibility.
