Narcissitic Facebook and Narcissistic Research ;)

Today a person said to me, “If you’re on Facebook, you’re narcissistic.
I asked, “How so?
She said, “Because I read the study in the Huffington Post.

That little conversation is the inspiration behind this blog.

There are a ton of current studies attempting to link Facebook and narcissism. For instance, a 2009 poll of a thousand or so college students at San Diego State University found that, “57 percent believe that their generation uses social networking sites for self promotion and attention seeking….”

Then (and boy did I have fun with this one) there was a study I read about (via the Huffington Post) that was conducted by York University psychologist Soraya Mehdizadeh. She concludes that narcissistic users who have low self esteem spend the most time on Facebook. Now, normally, I don’t go to the Huffington Post for any sort of scientific regurgitation and that has to do with a once-upon-a-time meeting with its health and wellness editor. I wasn’t impressed with the way they conglomerate information off the web, and I’ll just leave it at that.

Vibrators or Weedwackers

I’ve been around ON for awhile lurking in the back shadows. Needless to say, there’s a whole counter-culture seemingly lost in the rampant conservatism here. I for one, feel its time to shake up the nerds.

I wonder if it’s coincidence that vibrators sound like weedwackers? I mean, vibrators were invented in the 1800s, long before vajazzling and bacon strips went mainstream. There were … weeds back then. But now, weeds are whacked. Puberty is SO 1800s. It’s all about prepubescence in 2010.

The President as Commander in Chief ... Really?

"It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on." -Sun Tzu, the Art of War

I often read the Art of War, because it’s genius and offers strategies that can be applied to every day life let alone the battle field. In other words, everyone has a battle field, so the Art of War can apply to everyone. ;) I think to change a system you have to remain a part of the system and to completely understand a system you’ve had to have been through the system. Simplified, …experience is the best teacher.
