Believing you and your life are either literally or metaphorically the center of a metaphysical narrative in which you are the protagonist and that your life obstacles or people you disagree with or dislike are forces of evil. Most often seen in people who have consumed large amounts of entertainment such as books, movies, or video games which have a concrete "good or bad" for most of their lives.
