Dynamics of Human Societies: Narcissism
This paper presents a new framework for exploring human dynamics in the form of a psycho-social simulation of a human society. It is a multi-agent abstraction of reality, simulating the family dynamic, and also narcissism: a psychological disorder. This is a very specific, and intriguing trait in itself. By modelling it accurately, it is possible to ascertain how it spreads through the generations, allowing a study of lineage memory. The main aims of this model are to test social hypotheses relating to narcissism, and also to gain valuable insight into the family’s sphere of influence.
