So in a way, narcissism drive all of us when acting. But some people can't structure themselves to give importance to the long term- reward?

"Meaning" in the existential sense gives an individual a purpose. Narcissism drives us to achieve things, but it never gives us this feeling of accomplishment sane people experience.

Do you think people with lower narcissism have higher sense of accomplishment?

The latest thing on my now retired want-list was a yacht. I projected other people's dreams on myself, not knowing the circle jerk that is my own envy. I'd probably have enjoyed the sex and parties for a few weeks, but the actual enjoyment that comes with the hobby would have completely escaped me. I feel it would have been a pointless endeavor. Meaningless.

Yes i imagine life on a yacht as very boring :lol:

But probably some people enjoy it on a deaper way - or i hope so for them.

Be the freedom of going everywhere, the pleasure of appearing rich, the contact with the sea... I don't know, it's difficult for me to imagine because i think i would feel claustrophobic

Empty ? naahh..
Bored ? yeahh..

ADHD has taken away the emptiness but yeah if you say empathy, quite a tad low. Usually I get bored in a group of people where the topic is not around me , with myself I am never bored until I don't have a working internet.
