Filipino Scientists Confirm New Mental Condition: Egotitis

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – In 2014, The Adobo Chronicles first reported on a new mental illness that was spreading among Internet users. The report was subsequently followed by a scientific research (Balakrishnan, Griffiths, 2017), confirming the condition known as “selfitis.”

Fast forward to 2021, Filipino scientists and researchers at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, are suggesting yet another new mental health condition they are calling “egotitis.”

This new phenomenon, which seems to be afflicting the country’s top politicians and celebrities, manifests itself through a severe inflammation — the inflammation of the ego.

Among those who have been suspected of harboring egotitis include Vice President Leni Robredo, Senators Bong Go and Manny Pacquiao, Rappler CEO Maria Ressa and actress Angelica Panganiban.

At this moment, there is no known cure for, or a vaccine against, egotitis.
