Most days I scroll through my Instagram—even Twitter at times—and bypass those countless selfies that make way to the internet on the daily.
I've become so immune to "some" people that their Monday thru Sunday—self-made portraits don't even phase me anymore. But today it got me thinking about this type of person.
…also known as a person having an excessive interest in oneself and one's physical appearance—has gotten a bad rap these days.
I'm not taking this person off the hook—vain is vain, even if it's cute—but I am giving them a little break. I actually feel sorry for these folks.
Vain behavior may be one of the most widely known personality types these days. I'm not sure if this is something that has always been in existence or if this camera-obsessed generation brought it to life.
And to clarify, taking selfies, every now and then—nothing wrong with that!
I'm talking about the person who takes photos of themselves, more often than necessary. The person who feels the need to tell the world, "Look at me again, and again, and again, and again."
Narcissism is a mental, self-made behavior triggered by the need to get approval and attention from the outside world. And for some, the more attention they receive, the more mind-gratifying it is. It's a sad-induced process that actually defines you more than you realize.
