…Hit A Vain
All you narcissists out there can add another gold star to your list of admirable qualities—honesty.
Unfortunately, in this case it’s to a painful fault.
And all you non-narcissists out there can take comfort in the fact that that person you know who is really full of themselves, is fully aware of how annoying they are.
A team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis wanted to determine to what extent the perceptions vain people varies based on how they view themselves, how they are seen by others, and how they believe others see them.
The findings were rather surprising. It turns out not only are the vain full of themselves, and borderline dilussional, they’re also perceptive.
They know that you want to smack them with a hand mirror (or what ever else is handy) when they won’t stop talking about themselves.
And they don’t care a wink.
According to research, they probably think others don’t see their brilliance because they’re jealous or not smart enough to recognize it.
Just remember that the next time you’re reaching for the hand mirror, they’re not abnoxious, you’re just jealous.
