self-deception

самообман

Deceiving one’s self about one’s true motivations, character, identity, etc. One possible definition of the human species is “The Self-Deceiving Animal”. Self-deception is a fundamental problem in human life and the cause of much human suffering. Overcoming self-deception through self-critical thinking is a fundamental goal of strong sense critical thinking.

See egocentricity, rational self, personal contradiction, social contradiction, intellectual virtues.
