Narcissism is a term that originated with Narcissus in Greek mythology who fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Currently it is used to describe the pursuit of gratification from vanity, or egotistic admiration of one's own physical or mental attributes, that derive from arrogant pride. Narcissism has included particular meanings in specific fields.Four dimensions of narcissism have been delineated: leadership/authority, superiority/arrogance, self-absorption/self-admiration, and exploitativeness/entitlement.http://www.narcissisticrelationship.com/traits-of-a-narcissist/
Narcissism is a pattern of traits and behaviors which signify infatuation and obsession with one's self to the exclusion of all others and the egotistic and ruthless pursuit of one's gratification, dominance and ambition. As a character disorder, the prognosis for change is poor. However, as an element of the culture and human condition knowing the myth offers hope.
In this tale, told by Roman poet Ovid and remembered for his verses on love, a young girl named Echo falls in love with a vain youth named Narcissus. He was the son of a woman that the river god had encircled with the windings of his streams, thus trapping and seducing her. Worried for her son’s welfare, she consulted a prophet regarding his future. The prophet reports: Narcissus "will live to a ripe old age, as long as he never knows himself."

The term "entitlement" refers to a notion or belief that one is deserving of some particular reward or benefit. Narcissistic personality is where an individual is excessively preoccupied with issues of personal power, prestige and vanity.
Narcissism was named after a mythological Greek youth named Narcissus who became infatuated with his own reflection in a lake and died there because he couldn't tear himself away from the admiration of his own image. Signs of “entitlement”: are easily recognized: reacting to criticism with anger; taking advantage of others to reach own goals; exaggerating own importance, achievements, and talents; requiring constant attention; becoming jealous easily; lacking empathy and disregarding the feelings of others; becoming easily hurt and rejected. The narcissist often displays dominance, arrogance, superiority, and power seeking behavior
The cause of narcissism is unknown, but various researchers identify these possibilities: an oversensitive temperament at birth; excessive admiration that is never balanced with realistic feedback; excessive praise for good behaviors and overindulgence by parents.
Narcissistic individuals use various strategies to protect the self at the expense of others. They tend to devalue, derogate and blame others, and they respond to threatening feedback with anger and hostility.
