Do you take a sneaky look at yourself in the lift to the office? Guilty of spending up big on Armani suits, or perhaps the latest Apple tech gadget? You are not alone. New research shows Aussies like to look good at work – and are spending up big to do so.

    The article is interesting, but I'm not sure if this sort of behaviour, on its own, can be classified as narcissism.

    Many authors cite checklists for helping determine whether a person is a narcissist or not. Self-obsession with appearance, latest gadgets and some superficiality might be on
    those lists. However, those of us who have had business dealings with the true narcissists can cite some of the other criteria, such as bullying, deceit, manipulation and a gross overestimation of their abilities and importance.
