40 Narcissistic Things People Do to Their Bodies to Invoke Shock

— March 18, 2009 — Top Lists
Celebs are making us all narcissistic, or so days Dr. Drew Pinskey, author of “The Mirror Effect.”

If you think you might need to take the narcissism test, take a look at this cluster. From bad tattoos to bad hair cuts to bad mustaches, people will alter the way they look because they want, need or crave attention. Dr. Pinsky says celebs are more narcissistic than ever and their behavior is more dysfunctional than it was just a mere decade ago. Narcissism runs the lives of young celebs, and older celebs are scrambling to catch up.

This cluster focuses mainly on what people “do” to their bodies, but also includes a sample of things people wear or buy to induce you to look.
