He also shows self-consciousness when he adopts the voice of a younger version of himself telling the successful Jay Z to get off his high horse and appreciate what hes got. The third downside of success is that it can make you egotistical. A study of celebrity athletes found, for example, that as they become more successful, star college basketball players go through a process of self-aggrandizement. Their successful self takes over their entire personality. As the authors of the study write, The gloried self is a greedy self, seeking to ascend in importance and to cast aside other self-dimensions as it grows. It is an intoxicating and riveting self, which overpowers other aspects of the individual and seeks increasing reinforcement to fuel its growth. Jay Z reveals the struggle of staying himself in the final verse of the song, where he reminds himself hes Still that nigga. In other domains, ego can take hold as well. People who get promoted run the risk of having their success go to their head and cloud their judgment. They become overconfident. They feel like they have nothing left to learn. They make what psychologists call the fundamental attribution error: they take full credit for success without acknowledging the role of external circumstances, such as luck or other people. They may even take credit for other peoples work. Jay Zs song brings up the hazards of success. But he doesnt stop there. He steps back and looks at his problems in perspective.
