On a daily basis, narcissism is on display. Instagram models with millions of followers regularly share heavily edited photographs that make them nearly unrecognizable. YouTubers make money by recording and sharing the most routine aspects of their lives. Even regular people strive to create the ideal life via social media sites. It appears like we're becoming more and more narcissistic every day. But is this really true?

We've all undoubtedly heard the term narcissism used in our selfie-obsessed and self-posting culture. It's a common phrase that people use to describe someone who appears excessively vain or egotistical.

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is one of the 10 distinct personality disorders. It may influence a person's perception, mood, and behavior. As a result, it has an impact on a person's daily life and how they function at work and in their relationships.

People with narcissistic personality disorder are likely to have five or more distinct symptoms, such as:

grandiosity and self-importance

sense of specialness and uniqueness

fantasies of perfection and superiority

need for praise and attention

strong sense of entitlement

lack of empathy

jealousy, envy, and distrust

arrogance and scorn

a pattern of manipulating others

Every person experiences narcissism in their own unique way. The illness can manifest itself differently from one individual to the next. So, if you have any of these symptoms, does this mean you're a narcissist? No, it doesn't always work like that.
