First of all, the reason I decided to research on Narcissistic Personality Disorder for my health buzz, is because I thought it was an interesting topic to do research on, and also, around five to six percent of the global population has it. Also, it is more common for younger people to be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder, because of today’s environment.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a mental and personality disorder, in which the afflicted has beliefs that they are above all, and tend to have an extremely high sense of self-importance, at least compared to others. Some other symptoms include a lack of empathy, exploitation of others, and tend to have a sense of extreme entitlement, meaning that they feel that they own everything, or want to always be in control. However, there are treatments available for Narcissistic Personality Disorder, however, the central one is psychotherapy, or “talk therapy”. This mainly focuses on having people learn how to maintain, and also relate to people, and become more in touch with their emotions and feelings. After all my research on Narcissistic Personality Disorder, I now think that enough emphasis is placed on various mental disorders, other than autism, socio-and psychopathy, and OCD, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. I think those ones are given the most exposure in the media, and while I’m not saying it is invisible, I am saying that Narcissistic Personality Disorder, is an important issue in today’s society, and it isn’t given enough focus in the media. This concludes my post on Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
