Every time somebody disrespects me, hates on me, insults me, or even disagrees with me (if it's a topic I'm passionate about), I get a massive ego boost because I know that I'm superior to them and in the right.
Normal or not normal?

Normal. Whenever someone (typically female) freaks at me for not being a feminist it makes me feel excited because I know they are just being dumb6

This is an abnormal defense mechanism that actually occurs quite often.
Google "superiority complex" and click the Wikipedia article.
If you receive an instant boost in your ego or consistent feelings of superiority in every argument or conflict you come into, then you are not reacting to whatever is being said, logically. Rather your mind attempts to combat cognitive dissonance or feelings of inferiority by over-compensating with an artificial inflation of self-worth.2
