One of the most popular topics these days is Narcissism or being Narcissistic. It’s like the hot psychology topic! Yes, it seems everyone knows someone who fits the Narcissism criteria or is narcissistic; Isn’t that true? Well, a Google search for “narcissistic” reveals that over 21 Million websites sites and blogs are talking about Narcissism.

So everyone and their brother are getting narcissist about narcissists! It would seem we have an epidemic of global proportion. But who is actually experiencing the effects of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder?

What Causes Narcissism

According to Samuel Lopez De Victoria, Ph.D.

“Everybody has narcissism in them; The point is if you have too little narcissism (self-love) you have a low self-esteem. If you have too much narcissism than your extreme egotist and your egocentric. If you have just a little bit of narcissism then it’s healthy self-respect.” Dr. Sam | HOW TO SPOT A NARCISSIST!

Samuel Lopez De Victoria, Ph.D better known as Dr. Sam has a good point… Everyone has the trait of narcissism to some degree. Yes, Everyone is narcissistic!  This reminded me of that part in the movie The Incredibles when Syndrome says, when “Everyone can be super! And when everyone’s super.” Then “no one will be!”  Just replace the “super” and say when Everyone is Narcissistic! And when everyone’s Narcissistic.” Then “no one will be!

Syndrome: I’ll give them heroics. I’ll give them the most spectacular heroics anyone’s ever seen! And when I’m old and I’ve had my fun, I’ll sell my inventions so that everyone can be superheroes. *Everyone* can be super! And when everyone’s super…[laughs maniacally]…*no one* will be. – The Incredibles (2004)*

Ultimately the lie of narcissism is not a secret anymore, cause we are all narcissistic to some degree.  It’s the people that take it to the extreme (Narcissus) truly define the Cluster B Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
