    Have any of you dated someone who was a narcissist? What was your experience like with one? Has anyone ever said you were one? What things have you seen that has convinced you that it is narcissism that they are displaying?

    I will admit i'm a narcissist...I don't need anyone to tell me that, even though I have been...I talk about myself ALOT...I'm self-absorbed...I stare at myself in the mirror any chance I get (im in front of mirror right now)...spend an hour taking pictures of myself...I like to look at myself..and i have dated a guy who was one...he would stop by any mirror in the mall just to look at him...He was 100% into himself....he thought he was better looking then me and females in general....He'd be like "Look at me, I'm prettier then you."

    I think it's borderline insecurity and narcissism.

    It helps to have a good working definition, from which posters may assess or re-assess their understanding of the term... Case in point, could the 1%, in terms of the 99%, in the economic and political argument be narcissistic?:

    Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder[1] in which the individual is described as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy,power, prestige and vanity. This condition affects one percent of the population.[2][3] First formulated in 1968, it was historically called megalomania, and it is closely linked to egocentrism.
