    It's not a meaningful phrase in English; I think it's an error on that page. "Soft-spoken" is meaningful, but that would seem to contradict "mean, abusive," so I have no idea what the page's author intended. Commented Jun 13, 2018 at 14:59

    Google Books has references to things like a self-spoken lesbian, which I assume is a "copying error" based on half-remembered self-confessed. I also found A self-spoken, retiring demeanor isn't an illustrator's best approach, which is obviously just a typo/OCR error for soft-spoken. Clearly neither are applicable in the exact context cited here, which I think is just a non-native speaker who didn't know to use self-opinionated. Commented Jun 13, 2018 at 15:41

    A word that would fit into that list is outspoken.

    self-spoken isn't a character-trait.

I haven´t found an specific dictionary entry for self-spoken but

According to Cambridge Dictionary

self- [PREFFIX]

of or by yourself or itself

-spoken [SUFFIX]

speaking in a particular way

And according to MacMillan

self

a. [UNCOUNTABLE] SPOKEN

what you feel and want, rather than what other people feel and want

Adding all these evidences with the other characteristics you listed, we can infer that he's a person that is always talking about himself.

EDITED: I'm not a native English speaker, it has been pointed that "self-spoken" is not a recognizable word. Maybe the author of the entry meant self-centred or any of its synonyms.
