comment Low agreeableness on argumentations with people confident in rethoric
Could you please stop labeling all of your questions abnormal-psychology and cognitive-psychology when they are not (as has been pointed out to you before)? Also no need to constantly 'welcome edits' at the end. That is a given on Stack Exchange.

Asking for terminology.

comment Can someone who is never speaking of himself and present himself as very altruistic be egocentric / narcissistic?
@Revious If that is your question, why then do you include narcissism when framing it? The underlying question you seem to be asking is one you seem to try to answer yourself in the question (hence circular reasoning): "Do people perform altruistic actions which do not benefit them in any way?" In case your research finds potential answers, you can always post those as answers instead to your own question.

Perhaps by saying that "prosocial actions are motivated by a need of self-affirmation" you imply that people perform altruistic actions because it makes them feel better about themselves? Given your question this smells a bit like circular reasoning.

What do you mean by "But since the prosocial actions are motivated by a need of self-affirmation"? The article you link to does not seem to mention a 'need' of self-affirmation at all. Considering "Self-affirmation theory contends that if individuals reflect on values that are personally relevant to them, they are less likely to experience distress and react defensively when confronted with information that contradicts or threatens their sense of self.", I do not understand what you mean by a 'need' of self-affirmation.

comment Using Cognitive biases for behavior change?
@NirEyal That could be relevant to the question. In case you elaborate a bit more on how this relates to the question, and shortly answer it, you could post it as an answer.

comment Is it easy in languages other than English to read a paragraph where all but the first and last letters of every word have been rearranged?
Regardless of this being an interesting question, it (and the text posted in this question) seem to be an urban legend/internet meme called typoglycemia. It is unclear what the purported 'research at Cambridge university' was, but it could have been an unpublished PhD.

@Gary Thank you for the link to the book! I was unaware she published this.

comment How do we learn to count syllables?
Interesting and likely relevant, however, this answer does not directly address the question "how do humans learn this skill without being taught?".

comment Are some of the new age proponents in psychosis?
You question got closed since it is unclear. Perhaps read a bit more into the Wikipedia article on Psychosis and refine your question with what you learned. You can still edit your question, after which it can be reopened.

comment Which paper or book from cognitive science do you think everyone should read or know about, and why?
Relevant Meta question on whether or not we welcome this type of questions, and if so, how to structure it: meta.cogsci.stackexchange.com/q/36/21. Given this, I personally feel the scope of the question is too broad. I welcome list-type questions myself, but only when well defined (as you can find examples in the meta post).

comment Why being ignored is 'painful' for human beings?
A lot of assumptions being made in this question without referring to any source, and a lot of tangential unfocused questions. Please focus on one. If you are after verification whether there is a concept/terminology for this behavior, start there. If there is, you can go from there to find documentation on it and ask your subsequent questions. Edited to reflect this.

comment Why do people want to be parents?
The way you currently phrase the question is entirely opinion based, and not rooted in any interest in, or knowledge about psychology or biology. This makes the question in its current form not a good fit for this site: (1) it is too broad thus hard to pinpoint what type of answer would actually constitute an answer (this site is not for dicussions), and (2) attracts opinion based answers, as opposed to scientific answers. You can still edit your question, in which case it might be reopened.
