“Narcissistic behavior is one of the most prevalent disorders that is often admired and misunderstood in our society today,” author Rudolph Hall writes in his new book, Narcissistic Behavior in the Postmodern Era: The Study of Neuropsychology. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders defines narcissistic personality disorder as an inflated sense of self-importance and need for constant attention.

This book is designed to help people observe narcissistic behavior and to be aware of their own emotional behaviors as they struggle for survival and achieve favorable interaction with people of other cultures that are motivated by Western values.

It is essential to identify narcissistic personality disorder and its trait in order to maintain homeostasis in our physical and mental processes. It is important to get help and identify the behaviors appropriately in order to avoid self-inflicted emotional disorders that inhibit personal achievement and limit a successful fulfilling existence throughout ones’ lifetime.

Using the Biopsychosocial approach to understanding human behavior, Hall initiates a new perspective into the psychology of everyday life that is more reliable. Narcissistic Behavior in the Postmodern Era: The Study of Neuropsychology also aims to make psychology meaningful and relevant for introductory level students.
