    Question Narcissism - Is it a good thing to practice?

    Narcissism is the excessive interest in oneself and one's physical appearance.People having an excessive admiration of themselves are known as narcissists.
    Thus, narcissist probably have an inflated opinion about themselves and too much of ego hence they refuse to accept any suggestions from others and are hard to mingle with.
    It's their dedication and charisma which help them to be successful.Many people consider self confidence as a part of narcissism and promote narcissism as a good factor.


    My question is whether narcissism is a good thing to practice or not? Share your thoughts.

    Self love and self confidence is must for everyone but narcissism is bad it will not allow us to appreciate others achievements and also not allow to accept our own faults or mistakes.

    Thank you Bhavya for sharing your view. But narcissism has a good side as well.

    Hi sheero!

    Sometimes self confidence is being mistaken as narcissism and people who have a greater level of self confidence end up being narcissists but it can also be defined as when a person is too much admiring something it could end up being narcissist

    Thank you for sharing your view Shivani. I agree with you, too much of anything is good for nothing.We should have self confidence but no overconfidence which makes us a narcissist.

    Hi Moana,

    As Helana said when self-confidence become overconfidence, self-love become narcissism
