"No, they don't. I know when I have problems! But, I am not selfish and absorbed. Part of being mentally messy (and please, no hate mail, you KNOW it's true) is about being selfish. People who are selfish don't really give a crap about self introspection. Therefore they don't know from crazy!"

We aren't asking specifically about narcissistic personality disorder, Sugar. From what I've read on blogs, those living with a mental illness seem to do quite a lot of self-introspection. How much do you do? And makes you arrive at that conclusion, a bad experience with one person, prehaps?
Ok, Mariah, that's quite enough ranting at the person.
Since, as far as I am able to tell, the majority of the readers of this blog would fall into the "mentally messy" category, what do you think about this opinion? Are the mentally interesting automatically somehow selfish? And are the selfish less self-introspective? If you disagree, what do you think pushed this Answerer to that conclusion?
