    This is why we don't armchair diagnose people. Narcissism is a personality disorder and diagnose it. It is immoral and unethical to so widely amd grossly [mis]apply it.

    Their "no pollution" vehicles.:rolleyes:
    Electric vehicles, PC wokers, self professed psychiatrists, nu-athiests, Christians, Muslims, I could go on and on and on.

    BTW, my stock has risen among my ultra-leftish friends,
    now that my compound is 100% solar (as soon as the
    last electric meter is replaced.)
    But I ordered smug-free components.

    If I did ride much these days, I'd get a helmet cam.
    But it'd be the kind that records accidents.
    Experience tells me that it's essential to have evidence.
    One cannot always depend upon witnesses to chase
    the perpetrator to his home. (Been there...done that.)

    I've seen and heard about so many dickweed drivers being abusive cretins to cyclists I can't blame cyclists for doing that because it really is a safety measure at this point.

    I find it a good reason to not bike places that necessitate a helmet cam.

    Ergo we don't see narcissists all around us. There is a big difference between selfishness and a pathologic disorder.

    IF you are lucky (and not blind)

    And not so difficult to know the difference; as it is, as you said, a "big difference", so it's easy to spot (when a little awake)

    A high end estimate is 5% of the US population. A low end is .5%. Either way, they aren't all around us.
    You need to quit seeing this into people and feeding stigmas. It's an unethical amd damaging practice.
    Apparently it is because of all these people running around using the term, not even realizing the stereotypical image of a narcissist isn't what you're likely too in a real one, and some you can't spot going by this image at all because these narcissistic do not live up to that reputation.

    So, if you know it's a bad practice then I it seems a good idea to me that you don't do it
    No need to tell me what I should or should not do though. I can think for myself
    I don't tell you what you should or should not do, do I?

    IF I need your advice, I will let you know

    I'm not doing it. You're the one who said you see narcissists all around. You don't. You are armchair diagnosing amd reading that into people.
