Abstract

Social media like Twitter or Instagram play a role of fertile ground for self-exhibition, which is used by various narcissists to share their frequent updates reflecting their narcissism. Their belief of saving and assisting others, make them vulnerable to the feedback of others, so their rage is as dangerous as their messiah complex. In this paper, we aim to analyse the behaviour of a narcissist when he is admired or re-ceives negative critics. We designed a complex adaptive mental net-work model of the process of narcissism based on the theories of neuroscience and psychology including a Hebbian learning principle. The model was validated by analyzing Instagram data.
