In response tom prompt : Narcissism
Narcissism is a fascinating topic. I’m glad there’s only 1% of the general population who has this disorder NPD( narcissistic personal disorder).
Those who have this disorder overestimate their ability and have an excessive need for admiration and affirmation.
The term narcissism comes from the Greek myth about Narcissus, a handsome Greek youth who according to Ovid, rejected the advances of the nymph Echo. This made him fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water.
Most people have some narcissistic traits. I can live with some traits, but for it to manifest into a pathological form known narcissistic personality disorder is sad indeed!
