Epidemic Of Narcissism

The ego epidemic: How more and more of us women have an inflated sense of our own fabulousness

Lucy Taylor -Daily Mail

Us women are more egocentric and narcissistic than we ever used to be, according to extensive research by two leading psychologists.

More of us have huge expectations of ourselves, our lives and everyone in them. We think the universe resolves around us, with a deluded sense of our own fabulousness, and believe we are cleverer, more talented and more attractive than we actually are.

We have trouble accepting criticism and extending empathy because we are so preoccupied with ourselves.

Am I making you angry by telling you this? It figures. Narcissistic or egotistical women do have an overwhelming sense of entitlement and arrogance.

Doesn't make me angry, just your apparent denial of every gain that feminism has accrued. Women with egos? So what? After tens of thousands of years of oppression and abuse from you know who, it's a bit late to get back in the box.

Not so sure they're two sides of the same coin. Two edges of the same blade, perhaps?

Like comparing the contributions of Attila and Picaso. They both have their charm, but differently.

The tragedy in this is how social manipulation by assorted forces undermines the full potential and happiness of all involved.

Nobody of fair mind wants oppression, of anyone.

PEOPLE appear more narcissistic lately.

Good grief, men have been problematically narcissistic since Narcissus, but that's not the point here.

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom
