A step ahead of you, Piggy Stu. But, being me, I'll wait.
My dad had the same thing (slightly different wording).
"Once I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken"
Energy Vampires, even garlic won't fix em....
I just checked this out to find out if I was being mentioned personally but since none of it is about me I'm not posting.
Ok, enough about me,
Let’s hear about you,
What do you think of me?
Yes this and only this .. In the old days there where no narcissist ... Just great leaders like Joseph Stalin!
My feeling is that we are definitely seeing an increase. Likely due to a combination of factors, one of which hasn’t been mentioned — an increase in population density. Also, I’ve seen a few articles talking about the heightened sense of entitlement seen in new generations coming age and trying to join the general workforce, and having issues holding jobs.
I disagree, "advertising" (marketing) directly uses human behavior and weakness to sell things.
After WW2, marketing began this trend towards the "individual", you are important, do it for yourself... You deserve it... this sort of thinking drives self centered behavior, which may not be the same as "narcissism", I'm not a shrink so *shrug*.
I’d be happy to get to my point in the inbox if it interests you.
I've heard the word narcissism more in the last couple years than I have in my entire life. It's as if people honestly think the world is infested with narcissists. People on social media coming out of the woodwork to tell their stories of living with or knowing a narcissist.
Bull. I've never met a clinically described narcissist in my life. A bonafide narcissist would be impossible to live with or work with and I sure as hell wouldn't allow one to even set at my table. Of all the mental/personality defects, this condition should be the easiest to treat...but like any broken human being...you have to want to change. I'm sure they exist and that someone close to them has to watch their disregard for others...but I don't think they are as common as we're led to believe.
Naw, to be honest I'm talked out on the subject, and in the process developed quite a bias towards "media" in general.
I'm not that receptive to ideas about marketing and TV/movies that don't agree with mine.
My wife works with a woman, Margery, who may be a narcissist. Is she? Well, she can't stop talking about herself, and she turns any conversation back to herself, and only concerns herself with how X affects her.
The worst is at dinner parties. She manages to hog the conversation and suck up all the oxygen in the room. Usually, when someone tells a story, they pause at the end. Margery has perfected circular breathing and seamlessly starts a second story as soon as the first ends -- you just can't get a word in edgewise.
Once, I was at an apre ski thing before Margery arrived and we all agreed to work to stop her from doing all the talking. Later, Roger was talking and stumbled on his story. Instantly Margey jumped in and started talking about herself! I had to talk over her and say, "and then what happened, Roger?" It was hard work! After about five minutes it just got to be too much work and Margery took over and did all the talking. I'm thinking narcissist.
Survival of the fittest says, “Me first ... “
Jess Sane, here ...
There are so many narcissist talking heads on vlogs and the youtubes now.
How are you going to prove that?
All I know is that everyone thinks everybody else is the narcissist.
Does it? What if cooperation were the better strategy, and the guy who sez "me first" is off on his own? Aladdin Sane...
This isn’t one of those, but as you wish.
First, how would you know if you’ve met any... it’s not like they wear identifying bracelets or special hats. Second, it’s not sound logic to conclude that there aren’t very many of a certain type of person simply because you haven’t met any (that you know of).
A narcissist walks into a bar and finds that he can’t stop staring at the gorgeous man across the room. He is fascinated with this guy and he can’t figure out why. Finally he sneaks over to the bartender and tells him to get the guy a drink on him. The bartender looks confused for a minute. “Which one?” The narcissist points at the amazing looking guy and the bartender looks pained.
“Sir,” he says, holding back laughter. “That’s a mirror.”
