Narcissism Quotes (422 quotes)
I was married to a narcissist for 12 years — and I had NO idea
You must be tired of them. Research shows we are experiencing a narcissism epidemic. In data from 37, college students, narcissistic personality traits rose just as fast as obesity from the s to the present, with the shift especially pronounced for women. The rise in narcissism is accelerating, with scores rising faster in the s than in previous decades. Even music is getting more narcissistic. And what do most people on Twitter tweet about? Themselves, of course.
Although narcissists would never admit it, they are by nature dependent on other people for their emotional survival. If they were loners, many lives would be spared immeasurable misery. A certain type of tiny wasp, for example, injects its egg along with chemicals into a ladybug. The egg hatches and consumes the nutrients that the ladybug ingests when it eats, essentially devouring the ladybug from the inside out. When the wasp larva is big enough, it squirms out of the ladybug and wraps itself in a cocoon beneath it.
While narcissism has been a personality trait that has been around for a long time, narcissistic personality disorder NPD and narcissistic personality traits have been in the public eye more often in recent years. As awareness increases surrounding narcissistic traits, people are wondering if they are dealing with a narcissist rather than someone who is simply selfish, thoughtless, or overly power-seeking in a more general way.

Editor's Note: In recent years, the media landscape has been particularly harsh toward Millennials. Whether Millennials are at school, in the workplace, or at home, their behavior is confounding older generations—prompting many to label this generation as entitled, narcissistic, and lazy. But most of these widely held views betray ignorance about who Millennials really are. Hedgeye interviewed Demography Sector Head Neil Howe to set the record straight on who Millennials are and why they act the way they do.
