Inconsistent behavio: A condition in which a persons actions, thoughts and behavior are not consistent with patients personality. In short, a lie. Politicians live by this.

No one knows: It appears that no one is answering. I suspect that you have heard a term but have written it in a form that is different from what was intended. Dystonia is a condition of the muscles of the body. It can be very specific or very generalized. Ego is a term for the conscious self. I suspect that some people have rigid and dystonic egos. I have no treatment i could recommend.
