"Grower's Ego" Is it a thing?
I recall an old Subcool WeedNerd show where he mentions looking at other shoppers in a grocery store like "ants" and how inflated one's head can become when they live in their own little world. To his credit he ackowledged it was immaturity.
It seems like there is a great awakening (Ah-HAH!) in a person when they enter this world(cultivation) and it propogates throughout their perspective.
Is 'jaded' the word? I dunno.
It's hard not to feel a little superiority when the "wool is lifted from the eyes".
