I do not know any human narcissists - but have met a couple of birds that might just qualify. Take this Silver gull from Lakes Entrance.
|1: Checking that the universe revolves around me.|
|2: Inside the protective barrier, built up as a young gull as a result of some traumatic event, focusing on what is real and important.|
|3. Taking comfort and drawing strength from the attention of other gulls.|
|4. Taking the relationship one beak further.|
|5. Woops, in too deep.|
|6. Did anyone see ?|
Did a bit of reading about narcissism preparing this, but the texts I read were one step from witch-doctory and about as useful. A surprising number focused on the real life experience of therapists with colleagues or former friends and lovers. I am amazed we tolerate the existence of such quackery in such an important area based on such flimsy science.
