What is this human behavior called, and at what age do children learn it?

What is the behavior called when one person is able to recognize controversial behavior in others but is blind to seeing the same (or worse) disruptive behavior in himself (or his friends?) And at what age do children learn this? When do they recognize that they are exhibiting same or worse behavior as their 'enemies' and thus if their 'enemy' is subject to punishment, he is also subject to the same punishment?
