Narcissism and a boobie video

18 Aug

There’s an old Greek myth about this dude named Narcissus, who they reckon looked at his own reflection in a pool of water until he died. Effectively, falling in love with his own appearance was the end of him.

Of course, we know that’s a myth and no one could be so vein as to die from looking at themselves, right? Well, that’s not exactly true. People die taking selfies all the time. Think about that for a second. People actually die in an effort to snap a pretty picture of themselves.

Psychologists have recognised that there are people who are just way too into themselves, so much so that it becomes a problem for themselves and/or for the people who have to deal with them. In honour of our old mythological buddy Narcissus, they called that sort of behaviour Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Most of us don’t really understand it in the same way as the white coat crew do but just about everyone is familiar with the basic concept of Narcissism:

Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity, or egotistic admiration of one’s own attributes, that derive from arrogant pride. – from Wikipedia

Narcissism is universally considered a bad thing. Or at least, it was for a very long time. I’m not so sure anymore. Let’s have a look at today’s video…

I’ve spoken in the past about the fact that, despite my own love for the bouncy parts of ladies, I think roaming around with a video camera dangling off your head, pointing down at your jubblies is a pretty good sign that you’re a crazy bitch.

So, let’s have a quick think about the physically attractive young lady in today’s video. Is she hot? I’m gonna have to go with a HELL YES on that one. Do I think she’d be an easy person to be around? I’m gonna have to go with a HELL NO.

It’s great that she’s worked out so much that she has a beautiful physique to show off but the way she’s chosen to show it off is, well, it’s pretty fucking crazy. Of course that’s just my opinion and for all I know she’s a lovely young lady who spends most of her time working with charities and is trying to cure cancer the rest of the time, but that’s not the impression I get. How about you?

Do you think she might be just little bit too into her own looks? Do you think she might just be showing a few symptoms Narcissism?

Crazy bitch tip: it’s good to look good and to feel good about how you look but if you’re stopping in your tracks to check out your reflection every time you pass a mirror, you might want to think about how things played out for Narcissus.
