Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), from "Suits," is a very egotistical person. Throughout Season 1, we learned that there was much more to Harvey's personality than his ego. He still had his moments of true egomania, however.
Harvey threatens to take his clients to a competing firm unless he gets back his senior partner promotion
In the "Pilot" episode of "Suits," Harvey learns that he has been promoted to senior partner. Unfortunately, Jessica (Gina Torres) takes away the promotion after she learns that Harvey lied to a client in order to close a deal. Harvey's ego knows that when Harvey threatens to take all of his clients to a competing firm, Jessica will cave. Of course, she does cave, and Harvey is re-promoted.
Harvey goes around Jessica to remove Stensland from McKernan Motors
In the episode "Inside Track," Jessica is very clear that Harvey is not to remove Stensland (Hamish McEwan) as CEO of McKernan Motors. He goes forward with it anyway, because Harvey's ego knows that Harvey will get his way, which he does.
Harvey initially thinks he has an easy win against Travis Tanner
In the episode "Undefeated," Travis Tanner (Eric Close) tries to defeat Harvey with the same tactics Harvey usually employs. Initially, Harvey's ego seems to think Harvey will have an easy win. Harvey quickly learns that he was wrong, nearly compromising his ethics in the process.
Harvey accuses Louis of cheating, claiming to have won their bet
In the episode "Rules of the Game," Harvey's attention is taken with another matter when he makes a bet with Louis (Rick Hoffman) about a case. He has Mike do most of the work, then assumes he has won the bet when Mike comes to him with good results.
Rather than focus some attention on the results, he blows his top at Louis, accusing him of cheating. Louis actually wins the bet in the end, proving that Harvey is not invincible, even when his ego believes he is.
Harvey thinks he will have an easy win to get Clifford Danner out of prison.
In the episode "Dog Fight," Harvey's ego mistakenly thinks Harvey can make a quick deal with the district attorney, Terrence Wolf (Chi McBride), to get the innocent Clifford Danner (Neil Brown Jr.) out of prison. When Terrence refuses the deal, Harvey's ego thinks it is a good idea to threaten Terrence with the idea that Harvey will surely win and make Terrence look bad. Terrence doesn't take the deal, and Harvey's ego continues to get bruised throughout the episode.
