It is very easy to remember a word when you associate it with an image. I like to do this.
And there is usually a legend associated with the origin of the word as well which makes it doubly exciting.
The word I have selected is
From oxford dictionary;
Narcissism (noun) means an excessive or sexual interest in yourself and your appearance.
Origin is from Narcissus, a beautiful youth in Greek Mythology who fell in love with his reflection.
|Narcissus by Caravaggio|
There is a nice story behind it and you can read it HERE. The article also talks about narcissism that exists everywhere. A nice read.
The flower Narcissus is supposed to have bloomed at the place where Narcissus died.
His narcissism made him think that he was a God's gift to the women all over the world.
I will post another when I come across a similar interesting word.
