Did this guy pick the RIGHT US city to call the MOST narcissistic?
In a culture where even our supposed REPORTERS are both SELF-obsessed and SELFIE-obsessed — yes, we mean you, Jim Acosta — it’s hard to argue that Narcissism is NOT on the upswing.
The rise of selfies and social media have played no small part in that growing trend.
Chris Moss paid America a visit, which he had been enjoying until he tried to take in some of the museums. Other visitors were so entirely focussed on themselves and getting a selfie, that they ruined the visit for Chris.
At the Pérez, which is big enough to accommodate ten times its number of daily visitors, you’d think there was plenty of room for quiet meditation. But no, now intruding on my view were gangs of teens. Not the schoolgroup chaos of, say, the Tate Modern, nor even the caption-snappers and Van Gogh hoggers of the National Gallery, but the more assertive, ambitious, annoying selfie-ists of 21st century America: boys and girls garbed in garish bermudas, baseball caps and summer dresses standing in front of huge canvases in order to place themselves in prime position. Me, me, shoot me, like this, like that, no like this!
This lead Chris to believe that Miami — where he was visiting — was the most self-obsessed city on the planet.
Is that fair? Are they the most self-obsessed city on the planet… or even in the USA?
I’ve lived in Miami and will admit that they’ve got a healthy share of self-admiration, especially around South Beach. But has this guy taken a national sampling?
Is Miami worse, say than Los Angeles?
There are a lot of ways a person can be self-obsessed.
Taking annoying selfies is just one of them.
Let us know in the comments where you think the most self-obsessed city — whether in America or the World — really is.
