Jealousies of the Super-Ego.

To attribute another’s behavior to their personal motives, while attributing one’s own behavior purely to circumstance.  I call that an Attributional Error.  (Rather frivolously.)

 “You are doing what you want to.  I am doing what I must.”

 Then there is the Retributional Error.  That is attributing one’s behavior to others, while attributing other’s behavior to choice.

 “You demand that I do this, while you demand nothing of yourself.”
