Source: Self-Love/Fee Images from Pixabay How Treatable Are Narcissists? The age-old problem with diagnosing mental disorders is that once you pin someone with a label, you tend to “fix” that person in time and space. Labels are typically both reductive and absolutist. And in this curious world of ours, just about everything human is relative—and changeable. To make matters more complicated still, there are instances where a person’s psychopathology is irremediable—say, in a hard-core sociopath, or one with severe autism or organic brain damage. And to add yet another level of complexity, one problem that, say, almost all discussions on narcissism encounter is that—like virtually all mental and emotional disorders—there are degrees of this disturbance.

What exactly is "phubbing"? If you are phubbing your friends, this means you’re snubbing your friends in order to focus your attention on your phone. It’s a “phone snub,” “phub,” for short. The term was developed in 2012 by an advertising agency that recruited lexicographers and poets to find the perfect term for this poorly perceived behavior. While phubbing is a more informal term for this behavior, researchers have chosen the word “technoference” as a way to capture what is actually going on between people when phubbing occurs. It’s a “technology-based interference” that can definitely be detrimental to relationships. No matter what you call it, the result is still the same–weakened social ties and compromised relationships.
