Default Narcissism.

At the discretion of PunkMaister, here we go:

Narcissism is the personality trait of egotism, often used as a pejorative, denoting vanity, conceit, egotism or simple selfishness. Applied to a social group, it is sometimes used to denote elitism or an indifference to the plight of others.

Destructive: Destructive narcissism describes someone who constantly exhibits numerous and intense characteristics usually associated with the pathological narcissist but having fewer characteristics than pathological narcissism. This can be seen in PunkMaister's request to have all of his threads nullified, therefore nullifying everyone elses posts in those threads.

The word itself in question is derived from Greek mythology, but we're talking about the meaning and understanding here.

Narcissism itself is pertinent to quite a wide range of scenarios and events. However, one thing it is not, is a story. Narcissus was the character involved in that mythological story. The word is merely derived from his name.

While my request is definitely negative it is not narcissistic, narcissists think very high of themselves and would never feel that their threads are all worthless and though have to be removed which is what I felt at the time I made the request.

So yes I do have a problem (Who doesn't?) but is most definitely not related to Narcissism. In fact is the total opposite...

Ok, I understand that, I won't judge you. I was just pointing out how some of your comments came across in a narcissistic way. It's good this thread is here though, it opens us up to some more discussion.

This isn't... a thread made for the prime purpose of PunkMaister, is it?

He requested I make it in the shoutbox earlier on. But it could be so much more.

Anyone can call people they disagree with narcissistic fairly easily.
