Acquired Situational Narcissism (ASN) is a form of narcissism which develops in adolescence or adulthood, brought on by wealth, fame and the other trappings of celebrity. It was coined by Robert B. Millman, professor of psychiatry at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

ASN differs from conventional narcissism in that it develops after childhood and is supported by the celebrity-obsessed society: fans, assistants and tabloid media all play into the idea that the person really is vastly more important than other people.

The person with ASN may suffer from unstable relationships, substance abuse, and erratic behaviour.
