egoísta = egotist?

Rebekah R.C1Kwiziq community member

egoísta = egotist?

Rafa, el muy egoísta ... : Rafa, [being] such an idiot .... 

Shouldn't the translation be "Rafa, [being] such an egotist"...?  Or perhaps ""Rafa, the egotistical  jerk"

Hola Rebekah

I changed the adjective in English to "selfish" because that's more accurate than idiot, but with regards to the rest of the phrase, bear in mind that this is idiomatic and it could be translated in different ways - yours are also very valid, of course.

Saludos cordiales
