What does self-esteemia mean?

what does self-esteemia mean?
Thank you for the request!

Self esteemia is actually not a recognized name for any disorder or symptom. What self esteemia is referring to is someone who has so much belief in themselves that they never believe they are wrong. In psychological terms, this can be someone who is narcissist. Self esteemia may be used in terms of describing someone who does not necessarily have all the traits of a person with narcissism but instead was convinced by others that they are so esteemed that they are held in higher regard than others.

Self esteem, on the other hand, is someone who understands their worth as compared to others. Low self esteem can mean that you feel you are less valued than others and having high self esteem means that you feel good about who you are as compared to others.

Self esteemia is a coined term and is really more of a way to describe a behavior that is unexplainable any other way by society.
