The adjective narcissistic describes those who are overly self-absorbed, especially when it comes to their appearance. Narcissism is a completely different concept, and it is also seen as a personality disorder, referred to as narcissistic personality disorder.

But there is in man a faculty that takes into account all sources of action, including self-love, and judges them, approving some and condemning others.
