Narcissism Epidemic: Why There Are So Many Narcissists Now
Narcissism, or excessive self-love, is marked by bloated confidence, vanity, materialism, and a lack of consideration for others. Yet narcissistic personality traits have become so pervasive in American culture that they threaten to transform us into a nation of egomaniacs, research psychologists Jean Twenge and W. Keith Campbell say in their new book The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement.

Twenge and her team at San Diego State University also report today in a new study that narcissism continues to spread quickly among college students, especially young women. Considering how cultural influences on girls have changed in the past decade, that's not surprising, says Twenge. Plastic surgery rates have jumped since the 1990s, and materialism is increasingly being emphasized in song lyrics, for example, she says. ...

Decreasing godliness creates a vaccuum increasingly filled by one's self.

Not sure if this comment is directed to me, but if it is, my answer is, "That's up to the reader. If it edifies, fine. If not, no worries."

For every 'news' item that SA posts, is it "quality information?"

"Narcissism, or excessive self-love, is marked by bloated confidence, vanity, materialism, and a lack of consideration for others."

Brings to mind what the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy concerning the last days:

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Timothy 3:1-5

"A whole host of narcissistic traits—extreme self-importance, inflated sense of specialness, vanity, envy, and entitlement—...These shows offer hope to all narcissistic viewers who ever dreamed that fame, or even just ostentatious wealth, could be theirs simply by demanding it." (65)

Pinsky, Dr. Drew and Dr. S. Mark Young, The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism Is Seducing America

"Therapists, not priests or popular preachers of self-help or models of success like the captains of industry, become his principal allies in the struggle for composure; he turns to them in the hope of achieving the modern equivalent of salvation, 'mental health.'

Therapy has established itself as the successor both to rugged individualism and to religion…" (13)
