What Do You Know About Beauty Behaviors?

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? While I'm sure you'd like the mirror to answer back with a "you" every now and then, repeated stints staring at your complexion all day could be construed as vain.

That type of behavior is commonly known as narcissistic personality disorder. Do you think you know a thing or two about phobias or disorders when it comes to the topic of beauty? There's only one way to find out, all in the spirit of good fun, of course. Once you've finished, tell us how you did, and most importantly — how did it make you feel?

Wow, some of these are pretty weird. I agree though that trichotillomania is a pretty serious condition - I had a mild case of it a few years ago, and I would love to see an article about it!

5/5 I guess I'm good at etymology after all. Or in some cases, at picking what sounds most like Greek. Oh, and I knew someone who had trichotillomania. It wasn't so much picking at splitting ends as pulling out her hair and eyelashes though.

Bella - the intro to this article is a bit misleading. Narcissistic personality disorder is an overarching psycholgical condition that much more complex than looking in the mirror all day.(check out the wiki page). Funny fact: Dr. Drew Pinsky (from Celebrity Rehab) has done a lot of research on narcissism as a personality trait in celebrities:

3/5...I guessed. I have a friend whose mom had fear of bathing and water...she had agoraphobia (probably spelled wrong) too. She never left home unless there was an emergency and took meds before leaving. She never saw a mental health professional.
