The extreme effects of individualism and inflated self-esteem

Narcissism isn’t just a personality type that shows up in advice columns; it’s actually a set of traits classified and studied by psychologists. But what causes it? And can narcissists improve on their negative traits?

Psychologists define narcissism as an inflated and grandiose self-image. They speak of two types of narcissism: grandiose and vulnerable narcissism and the extreme Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Not surprisingly, social media and countries that value individualism show higher rates of narcissism.

Learn about the psychology behind the elevated and often detrimental self-involvement of narcissists.
