Are you a narcissist?"What is narcissism?" is one of the
fastest-rising searches on Google, and articles on the topic
routinely go viral. Yet the word "narcissism" seems to mean
something different each time it's uttered. In fact, the more it's
slung about, the more elusive its true meaning becomes. The only
certainty, it would seem, is that it's "bad" to be a narcissist
really bad. That's terrible news for millennials, who've been
branded "the most narcissistic generation ever."In Rethinking
Narcissism, Dr. Craig Malkin a Harvard Medical School Instructor
and clinical psychologist with more than two decades of clinical
experience offers a radically new model for understanding this
often misused term. Narcissism, argues Dr. Malkin, is essentially a
spectrum of self-importance and everyone falls somewhere on the
scale between utter selflessness and total arrogance. When we
casually invoke the term "narcissist," most of us are referring to
the outer edge of the spectrum, which can shade into dangerous
psychopathy. But there are also those who live at the lower end of
the spectrum dubbed "echoists" by Dr. Malkin. These, too, are
people we know; people so fearful of attention or acknowledgment
that they often seem to have no voice at all.Drawing on his own
research as well as on the latest findings in psychology, Dr.
Malkin uses vivid stories of people from all walks of life to teach
concrete strategies for spotting and coping with excessive
narcissism. At the same time, he explains why embracing some degree
of narcissism the drive to feel special is essential to maintaining
a healthy sense of self-worth. Using his new tool, the Narcissism
Test, he not only guides readers through the process of measuring
their narcissism, but also offers step-by-step advice to prevent
unhealthy narcissism and to nurture healthy narcissism in ourselves
as well as in our partners, our colleagues, and our children.As
practical as it is wise, Rethinking Narcissism doesn't just help
people avoid the temptations and dangers of extreme narcissism and
narcissists in both the real world and cyberspace; it helps
everyone, including people who don't feel special enough, to find
their voices and live a more passionate, fulfilling life."
