Both men and women have ego. It depends on the specific situations. I think men shows ego when his self-respect is under threat, while women shows ego when her feelings are hurt.

The question itself is stupid. You cannot generalize these kinds of things gender wise.

But men called it as self respect, Generally there is a hair line gap between EGO and self respect. The main problem is no one can himself/herself understand when his self respect turns in to EGO. It is appreciated that true friends should tell where his friend is going wrong. so that one can properly understand the meaning and it goes out from his life as:
E - Ego
G - Go
O - Out

The essential difference sadly is the fact that men have penises...if we go back in time, before humans evolved from monkeys, males always had to fight and defend their territory and their females. Even now, if we take a look at the king of beasts, the lion does more of sitting around and roaring than hunt...and it's only when the harem is threatened that the lion raises it's body from the ground.

The innate psyche is the same with humans too...males still believe they are the protectors and warriors, and tend to have that countenance. This is the reason why the ego of males is bloated a lot more out of proportion than women.

Small things make a big differencethat your gym buddy recognizes that you are better built than he, you ought to be the meanest amongst the lotyoure either smarter, meaner, better looking, or at least richer than the other.

Boys toys are a typical investment for males to burnish their egotheir iPod is 80GBbetter, bigger more expensiveraretypical of mal ...more

I have noted many instances of large egos in both genders at work, not just men. Yet one thing is there - man can always be understood, while ti s difficult to understand women. A person of the caliber of Socrates , was not able to understand his wife!!!
Socrates was able to clearly understand what his wife was saying, but he was not able to understand what she meant.
Someone said::
Oh God! you created the species called "WOMAN'
So simple, yet so complex
So weak, yet so powerful
So confusing, yet so desirable.
