Selfie Moi m’aime - tmpx. Tmpx Tmpx

In an increasingly individualistic era, the traits of self-centered personalities are revealed.

But according to psychiatrist and author Marie-France Hirigoyen, there are several degrees of narcissism, from megalomaniacs to narcissistic perverts.

Selfish? Megalomaniac? Psychopath ?

There is no shortage of qualifiers to describe the traits of narcissistic personalities.

Worse, they almost have the “wind in their sails”, the fault of an increasingly competitive and individualistic society.

But instead of denouncing the evils of the time, this semantic overuse tends to devalue these very different terms, which actually represent different pathological degrees.

Because obviously, not all narcissists fall in love with their reflections in the water, nor with their selfie.

If loving yourself and having self-confidence is obviously not a fault or a disturbance, it can become so when this confidence overflows and the individual puts himself forward, to the detriment of others.

It is from there that narcissism becomes pathological. And even within these disorders, there are different “categories”.

Who are the Narcissus ?

According to psychiatrist Marie-France Hirigoyen, author of Les Narcisse (Ed.
The Discovery), there are different categories of narcissistic pathologies. The “grandiose and megalomaniac narcissus”, “the vulnerable Narcissus” and finally, “the narcissistic or psychopathic perverts” who show specific criteria.

Some experts consider that these disorders are two aspects which are the same problem. Other than that they are distinct pathologies which both hide a great fragility.

There is a classic tendency to classify narcissistic pathologies into two main categories. By excess of self-love, either grandiose (or megalomaniac) narcissism or, conversely, by insufficient self-love, or vulnerable narcissism.

These two pathologies come from the same problem. They also mask great fragility, a lack of self-confidence, doubts about his skills, his ability to be loved.
