At the beginning of the novel preferably.

I wouldn't call Scout self-centered. She is simply a child and children tend to view their world around themselves. Scout shows the typical traits of a child. She laments about how strict Calpurnia is with her and basically explains her life according to how she feels. Even within her narrow view of the world we can see the beginnings of the sensitivity that she develops later on in the book.
