Hi


I wrote a sentence to help me know the difference between the two words. Should I use egoistic or egocentric and what is the difference? I would also love to know what is the difference between egoist and egotist. Thanks.

The sentence,

The egoistic tendencies of the ruling class are the prime reason for the fall of any nation.

    Those words mean the same thing and you can use them freely. I think people use "egotistic" or "egotistical" more. As for "egoistic" and "egocentric", either is fine.
