Gate 26: The Gate of the Egoist
Your goal is to get the most out of everything you do. Your end goal: high status, prestige and wealth. While it’s true that you sometimes come off as unbearably cynical, you also experience a need to invest in others. You guide people toward what they want in life with great insight and precision. You recommend improvements to attain a faster end result without being pushy. You tend to exaggerate your own importance, which is always on display for your own benefit as much as that of others. You happily boast about everything, in every possible way, all the time. But when it comes to something of real importance, you work conscientiously. This gate endows its bearers with instinctive memory that stores past experience. You are largely guided by these instincts, and they keep you from making mistakes in the present.
