Best answer

Social anxiety and narcissism are similar in that both have a focus on the self. With social anxiety, you are so self-focused that you think people are always talking about you. Similarly, with narcissism, you only focus on yourself. The difference between the two are that social anxiety is about the fear of social scrutiny, while narcissism is about the need for admiration, lack of empathy, and believes that he or she is "special."
