I encountered this phenomenon from my practice as a graphic designer:
- it looks as though people with narcissistic streak and big ego - people who have problem with empathy - they also have a problem with negative space
. They are anxious about it, they don't understand it and want to fill it with information. They don't "experience" beauty directly , but instead, they form "narrative" about it.
I often encountered this while working with medical professionals (where narcissism is quite common).
Is this something I imagined or is this something that's actually confirmed in psychology/psychiatry?
