personal contradiction

личностное противоречие

An inconsistency in one’s personal life, wherein one says one thing and does another, or uses a double standard, judging oneself and one’s friends by an easier standard than that used for people one doesn’t like; typically a form of hypocrisy accompanied by self-deception. Most personal contradictions remain unconscious. People too often ignore the difficulty of becoming intellectually and morally consistent, preferring instead to merely admonish others. Personal contradictions are more likely to be discovered, analyzed, and reduced in an atmosphere in which they can be openly admitted and realistically considered without excessive penalty.

See egocentricity, intellectual integrity.
