Narcissearchism

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: nar sis surch izm

Sentence: He suffered from Narcissearchism. It was a serious New Age affliction, something unique to the Computer Age. He spent hours on the computer googling himself and checking what was being said about him. Some might say he was looking for himself, in an electronic way. His father before him, whom he was named for, had done the same, but without the automation. He looked up his name in every telephone book in every city. His son was following in his footsteps and spent hours in his quest. Perhaps if his name was not John Smith, it wouldn't have taken so long. He was becoming a real Yahoo...

Etymology: Narcissism (an exceptional interest in and admiration for yourself, named for Narcissis-In Greek mythology, Narcissus, Narkissos or The Self-Admirer (Greek: Νάρκισσος) was a hero of the territory of Thespiae in Boeotia who was renowned for his beauty.) & Search (Look for information on a "search engine" on the Internet; to hunt, explore, seek something.)
