In today’s news, there are reports that the personality disorder “Narcissism” is going to be removed from the upcoming revision of the DSM IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).

Narcissism is the personality trait of 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.

The name “narcissism” was coined by Freud after Narcissus who in Greek myth was a pathologically self-absorbed young man who fell in love with his own reflection in a pool. Freud believed that some narcissism is an essential part of all of us from birth. Andrew P. Morrison claims that, in adults, a reasonable amount of healthy narcissism allows the individual’s perception of his needs to be balanced in relation to others.

If you are ever curious as to if someone suffers from this trait, it is easily seen by evaluating the handwriting indicators for it. Handwriting analysis, or graphology, is useful for evaluating things like typology, psychopathology, and personality.
