Filipino Men: the most Narcissistic in Asia

Last week, I was rummaging through my friends’ feeds on Facebook when I found an astonishing article from Yahoo. It says that we, Filipino guys, are the most vain and Narcissistic boys in Asia. I was like: WTH?!

The controversial article – published in Yahoo over here – mentions three very intriguing points:

1. That 48% of Filipino guys found themselves sexually attractive compared to 25% of men in Singapore, 17% in China and Taiwan and only 12% of Hong Kong guys who think of the same thing about themselves.

2. That 9 out of 10 Filipino men wanted to look good for themselves, not for anyone else.

3. That Filipino guys are too busy gazing lustfully at themselves in the mirror.

 

If this study was that accurate, then Hail Narcissus! :mrgreen:

Greek Mythology has it that Narcissus was so obsessed (and in love) with his own reflection in the pool that he jumped in the pool and drowned (or in some myth versions, just died watching his reflection in the pool). Well, I hope that Filipino guys won’t do anything as crazy and stupid as that.

I do think however, that it’s cool to dress up, groom and look good for the women and to feel great about yourself. Looking your best self can spell the difference between dating the hottest girl and being turned down (a.k.a. “basted”) OR in in some cases, getting that dream job and being unemployed. Looking good is a confidence booster BUT don’t overdo it. Because as cliché as it may sound: too much of something is bad. Actually, being too vain is a huge turn-off for chicks you know.

South Korean men should be on top. They even leveled up to plastic surgeries than trying on cosmetic products.

It seems that Yahoo is playing a matching game with their article, having pairs of nations and sins which aren’t exactly a representative of one another just to suit their own idea.

Stupid people should realize that K-pop does not represent average Koreans. Only 16% of Korean are narcissistic according to the same survey.

http://www.starmometer.com/2006/12/28/survey-says-filipino-men-are-twice-more-vain-among-asian-men/

Not surprising that Filipino men are really narcissistic. I know several and they’re all vain. Even the ones who are short, really dark, skinny and have gigantic flat noses think they’re a +9 out of 10.

Pinoys are incredibly vain yet So to are Koreans who are over the top with beauty obsession. Korea is shockingly the highest in the world for cosmetic surgery much more so than even America. Just realize beauty oobsession is big money and the cosmetic industry want you to feel inadequate.

OK guys here’s some good free advice.

avoid franchise junk food like Macdonald because it will make you ugly.

Smart guy knows that junk food will make you fat and your skin look like shit.

avoid these substances:

Caffeine (coffee, tea, any tea with caffeine in it and energy drinks which contain caffeine)
tobacco
alcohol
aspirin
NSAIDs
stress( ages you quickly so avoid it as much as possible)

antibiotics unless you must have them
Those substances interfere with the absorbs ion of nutrients into your body

drink plenty of clean water (the greatest contribution to world health isn’t medicine it’sclean water.

Hydrate yourself with 50% water and 50% juice real juice not sugar for correct electrolyte levels

eat a high vegetable and fruit diet green leafy veges

Juice on a regular basis because it will make your skin glow with radiance and beauty.

juice, juice , juice carrot, celery, apple, orange, pears, strawberries, wheat grass is so full of vitamins and minerals.

That’sthe key to beauty not lies and bullshit.

Dont eat too much protein like meat in fact no more than 200 grams per day of meat depending on your BMI.
Carbohydrate you need plenty 2000 calories per day or more depending on your bmi.

Pasta
rice with egg because it doesn’tcontain all amino acids.
Potato

olive oil
saturated fat they say aint good fat .

much more to tell but I can’t write a thesis here.

Take up light body building but don’t tear or break or injure yourself. Confidence is good ego is stupid.
