    "Narcissism has been long been associated with the notion of entitlement, which typically suggests a lack of empathy, a feeling of superiority and a tendency to overreact to criticism. "

    From an article where a mother is reflecting on why her own children will have nothing to do with her now.

    Conclusion - parents/current culture led to the raising of Narcissists.

    What is the opposite of Narcissist?

    A devout Christian.

    Seriously. Think about that.

    Not self seeking, not a boaster in themselves, somebody who isn't walking around saying how great they are, one who doesn't rejoice in wrongs but rejoices in the truth, is giving of what they have to help others in need (not want)...

    "What is the opposite of Narcissistic?"

    Antonyms: humble, modest, altruistic, magnanimous, selfless.

    Narcissism basically defined;
    If your search for perfection requires the use of a mirror.....you're a narcissist.

    If you spell "perfection" as... p-u-r-f-e-k-s-h-i-n .....you're either a redneck, or a recent university graduate?

    I'm not surprised at all by the survey. Dyjital appears to be correct, Christians (Utah) tend to be less narcissistic.

    Californians the most narcissistic social media users in the nation, survey reveals, while they're humblest in Utah

    • A survey that asked 2,500 Americans about their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter posting habits found that 77 percent of Californians boast in them
    • Per the study, boasting could be sharing pictures of trips and special locations, memorable events, and work-related good news
    • Not far behind California were Washington and Nevada

    A survey that asked 2,500 Americans aimed at determining how boastful they are in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media posts to determine which state is tops in residents trying to turn all their friends green with envy.
    • And the winner is: the Golden State.

      Californians, according to the survey from HeyLets, is the most narcissistic state when it comes to social media.


      Say cheese Californians! You're the most boastful state on social media according to a survey of each state's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posting habits

      According to the survey, residents there more than anywhere are likely to use so-called status updates as opportunities for 'brag-ommendations' -- that is, pics of the fantastic things you've seen and done.

      Of the Californians surveyed, 77 percent said they frequently engage in social media self-promotion by sharing pictures of trips and special locations, memorable events, and work-related good news.

      Not far behind were two other Western states, Washington and Nevada.

      With all the opportunities for well-lit selfies, it's no surprise that Nevada--home to Fabulous Las Vegas--ranked as one of the top 3 most boastful states on social media

      Social media users in the Evergreen State take to social media to do their boasting about 76 percent of the time.

      Slightly lower on the list, the Silver State reported about a 72 percent rate of social media boastfulness.

      On the flip side, the study found, were the humblest of states, the most modest of which was Utah, where just 22 percent of residents admit to frequently bragging through social shares.

      Oregon, though bordering on boastful Washington, showed just a 26 percent rate of social media narcissism. in at third most humble was South Carolina, with 33 percent.
