A curse not used often, narcissism causes the victim to become overwhelmed with self-love. He cannot help but look at himself in every reflective surface at every possible opportunity. This can in the very least be annoying and at worst be very dangerous. In social situations, the victim will always try to make some comment about how attractive he is or how ugly someone else is when compared to him. And even if he is not a normally talkative person, he will still act very distracted, always looking for a reflective surface.

This distraction causes the victim a -3 penalty to BluffConcentration, DiplomacyGather Information, IntimidateListen, Perform, Read Lips, Search and Sense Motive checks. In combat situations, the victim may be more afraid of damaging his appearance than defeating the enemy.

This gives him a +2 circumstance bonus to AC but a -2 penalty to hit. The victim also will not actively seek to engage in melee combat, but will fight more in a defensive manner.
