Narcissism is a term with a wide range of meanings, depending on whether it is used to describe a central concept of psychoanalytic theory, a mental
illness, a social or cultural problem, or simply a personality trait. Except in the sense of primary narcissism or healthy self-love, "narcissism"
usually is used to describe some kind of problem in a person or group's relationships with self and others. In everyday speech, "narcissism" often
means egotism, vanity, conceit, or simple selfishness. Applied to a social group, it is sometimes used to denote elitism or an indifference to the
plight of others. In psychology, the term is used to describe both normal self-love and unhealthy self-absorption due to a disturbance in the sense of
conceited (comparative more conceited, superlative most conceited)
vain and egotistic
having an excessively favorable opinion of one's abilities, appearance, etc.
Both seem like similar words to me why disagree on semantics?
Point being it's somewhat of a paradox no?
Let me put it another way...
Is it selfish/conceited/narcissistic to believe we are so important there is a god there for us plural or I singular or smaller version of us plural
if talking about a specific god pertaining to specific religion.
Or more selfish/conceited/narcissistic (your preferred word here) to believe in only yourself.
