ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Let’s face it. We’re living in the age of narcissism: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reality TV, Selfies, Belfies. In countless ways we’re shouting “Look at me!” and along the way, it’s created a petri dish for narcissism to flourish – from individual brazen acts to clinical cases of extreme narcissism. Joseph Burgo, a leading clinical psychologist in the field of narcissism, explores all of this in his latest book, The Narcissist You Know. The book helps readers identify everyday acts of narcissism and the 1 in 20 people among friends, family, and yes, co-workers who are extreme narcissists and how to deal with their behavior. He also identifies and illustrates 7 extreme narcissism personality types.
Dr. Burgo will be hosting a book signing tonight at 7pm. He will be at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd. NW).
