Our mirror-kissing culture

Psychological experts are engaged in a heated debate over a curiously underappreciated issue of our times: should “narcissistic personality disorder” continue to viewed as a mental illness? Or should we concede, in my view, that mirror-kissing personalities have become not only the norm but a national passion. Narcissism is generally defined as an exaggerated sense of one’s own wonderfulness, a self-love so intense that, even when alone, the narcissist can barely resist the urge to hold his or her own hand.
