We tend to latch onto real diagnosis of the mind and attribute them to minor symptoms that people are having. Like, if you enjoy being organized some might say that you have OCD. People aren’t completely serious when they are saying this, but it is over used just like several other mental disorders. Narcissism is another one that is making the rounds. It is true that you can have some symptoms of each illness and not actually have the full blown disorder.
- In recent years, narcissism has joined ADHD and autism as a psychological diagnosis that popular culture has latched onto.
- Some people can display traits of narcissism without having an actual Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
- A true narcissist has no empathy and is pathologically self-obsessed.
“Regardless, we can all agree that narcissistic behavior is certainly more noticeable.”
