It is. Being a Fan is a way of adding to your good feelings about you. Sports, however, can increase narcissism by making winning more important than people.

  1. Hi Katherine,

    I like your format. It’s easy to read and to digest.
    The narcissism tool was short and simple to answer.
    Your kindness solutions are great reminders.

    Many thanks for your continuing inspiration to become a better person.

    • Thank you. I am trying to hone my blogs mission and figure out a posting agenda that is more professional. I used this format with parents but with a slightly different format, using simplified symptom lists and asking the parents if they agreed with the diagnosis. Many did agree; if they did not we met with the psychiatrist and discussed the parent’s pov; often the dx was changed and just as often, the parents came to see why it applied to their child. So Tuesday’s I am going to walk through some of the major DSM dx this way. You comment is encouraging.

Agree or disagree, comments are always welcomed.
