    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. Jun 13 '18 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. Jun 13 '18 at 15:41

    self-spoken isn't a character-trait. Jun 13 '18 at 17:52

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



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.
