Mindspill Tonight I was clearing off my camera’s memory card when I discovered that I may really have a problem. As I was clearing off images I counted 25 pictures of myself that I took at various times in the last 2 weeks. So I am thinking that maybe I am a narcissist as I have been told many times by many people.

Some of the pictures I took were to test some of the camera’s features but then I got into I guess & had a self photoshoot.

After I added up what I had on my new camera, I looked at the images on my older memory card & counted 15 photos of myself & lastly I looked at what I had taken with my laptops camera & I will not even begin to list the number.

Am I really suffering from a narcissist personality disorder??? Am I that in love with damn self that I need to take all of these miscellaneous snapshots.

I just checked Wikipedia & they have the criteria for NPD & maybe I’m in trouble.

At least five of the following are necessary for a diagnosis so…

Diagnostic criteria:

  • Has a grandiose sense of self-importance
  • Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
  • Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by other special people
  • Requires excessive admiration
  • Strong sense of entitlement
  • Takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
  • Lacks empathy
  • Is often envious or believes others are envious of him or her
  • Arrogant affect

To be honest I think like 5 of these apply to me so what do I do? How many of these criterion apply to you, no need to list which ones because I am ashamed to admit what may apply to me.
