LOve Thy Self

While doing my research on my subject's assignment I stumble into something that I often used to describe myself although it was meant to be ironic and only for humor purposes, I can't help being fascinated to this type of personality.

Narcissism a term used for a personality with character traits such as self-centeredness, self admiration and self-regard. The name came from the Greek Myth of Narcissus, who was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection. Although this is quite common among us but highly dysfunctional narcissism is divided by 2 types, narcissistic personality and malignant narcissism.

Narcissistic personality is described shown by sign of pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration and lack of empathy. Malignant characterized by a narcissistic personality disorder, anti social features, paranoia and ego-syntonic aggression.

Scary as it seems to be, it is actually a disorder in my opinion probably help some people to achieve success. The level of confidence in a narcissistic is so high that they believe they're superior than others and demand perfection in almost everything.
