Selfie Syndrome – How Social Media is Making Us Narcissistic (Video)

info-pictogram1 What is Narcissism?
● Narcissistic personality disorder involves a preoccupation with self and how one is perceived by others. Narcissists pursue gratification from vanity and the admiration of their own physical and intellectual attributes.

Signs of narcissism:
○ Unilateral listening
■ Instead of listening in order to respond, narcissists listen in order to dismiss, negate, ignore, minimize or otherwise make someone else’s concerns irrelevant
○ Preoccupied with self
■ Narcissists act selfishly and, even if being generous, are generally only responsive to their own concerns
○ Being above the rules
■ Narcissists feel that they are above others and that the rules don’t apply to them
○ Inability to take criticism
■ While narcissists have an inflated idea of their own importance, they can be quickly deflated by negative criticism
○ Refusal to take responsibility
■ Narcissists have a tendency to blame others for things that go wrong
○ Quick to anger
■ Narcissists may become easily angered by critical comments or being ordered what to do

Negative Effects of Social media:
● According to research from California State University: Excessive use of social networking may be connected to psychiatric problems
○ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
○ Depression
○ Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
○ Narcissistic Personality Disorder
○ Hypochondriasis
○ Schizoaffective and Schizotypal Disorders
○ Body Dysmorphia
○ Voyeurism
○ Addiction

The Effects of Popular Platforms:

● Facebook- The Social Mirror
○ People who use Facebook the most tend to have more narcissistic or insecure personalities
○ Those with higher narcissism scores were frequently updating statuses, posting pictures of themselves and using quotes or mottos to glorify themselves
○ Based on a study of Facebook users ages 18-25 using the Narcissism Personality Inventory and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale.
○ A 2012 survey of divorce lawyers showed that Facebook had been implicated in ⅓ of all divorce filings the previous year

● Twitter- The Social Megaphone
○ In a University of Michigan study of college undergraduates, it was found that those who scored higher in narcissism also posted more often on Twitter
○ Young people are using Twitter to broaden social circles and broadcast views. This usage leads people to over evaluate the importance of their opinions

Is narcissism an inevitable reaction to our social culture?

Sihr Al-Junun (Lunacy)

In this type of sihr the jinn entrusted with the sihr enters into the targeted person and setting in his brain, as instructed by the sahir. He then begins pressing to the brain cells for thought, memory and behavior or managing them in a way which only Allah (swt) knows. As a result, symptoms appear on the victim.

Khaija Ibn salat reported that his paternal uncle went to the Prophet (saw) and declared his conversion to Islam. On his way back, his uncle passed by a people who had fettered a lunatic in chains. They said: We were told that you have anything with which to cure our lunatic? I recited Al-Fatiha and he was cured. They gave me one hundred sheep and then approached the Prophet (saw) to inform him of it.

He asked: Did you say anything other than this? I replied: No . He saus: Take it, for by my life, some would accept in return for a false ruqya, but you have done this with genuine one. according to another narration, the man cured him by reciting Al-Fatiha for three days, and night;whenever he finished reciting it, he would gather his salina and spit.

Symptoms of Sihr Al-Junun (Lunacy)

1: Severe absentmindedness and forgetfulness
2: Confused speech
3: Bulging eyes and deviation of sight
4: Restlessness
5: Inability to do a task regularly
6: Disinterest in one appearance
Treatment of Sihr Al-Junun (Lunacy)

Record the following chapters on audiotapes and listen to them two or three times a day for one whole month; Al-Baqarah, Hud, Al-Hijr, As-saffat, Qaf, Ar-Rahman, Al-Mulk, Al-Jinn, Al-zalzala, Al-Humaza, Al-Kafirun, Al-Falaq and An-Nas. the victim may feel uncomfortable listening to these chapters and may come epileptic during such a period and the jinn may speak as a result. The pain may increase for fifteen days, then ease gradually and completely subside by the end of the month.
