Lexicon: the Second-Hander 4/5

Taylor Schilling as Dagny Taggart in "Atlas Shrugged" part 1
A [second-hander] is one who regards the consciousness of other men as superior to his own and to the facts of reality. It is to a [second-hander] that the moral appraisal of himself by others is a primary concern which supersedes truth, facts, reason, logic.
