I'm talking about any kind of model, not necessarily the professional ones like VS, but also Instagram models, or those who are starting.
So do you think models, and those who aspire to become models, are narcissistic?

A few? For sure - but really, being minimised to your looks and your looks alone and facing more rejection because of your looks than in any other profession can have the exact opposite effect of narcissism more often than not.
I've met people that dropped out of it after like half a year because they just couldn't handle the amount of criticism and shit you get at some castings - it takes a lot of confidence and support from your friends and family to get through this, especially in the beginning.2

I'd guess 50/50.
Realistically I dont believe the stereotypes that models are all these bitchy airheads but I doubt they are anything spectacular either. Id bet most are average in every category other than their looks. So they won't be the nicest or the bitchiest, the smartest or the dumbest.
The thing that turns me off the most about models is the nature of their job not the stereotypes about their personality. I dont like the idea of dating a girl who takes her clothes off for money and poses for sexually suggestive photoshoots. It just kinda cheapens their beauty, to see her in lingerie or naked in my room but know that 100s of men just paid money to take hd pictures of her like that. Also it would probably be disappointing after a while to see how sexy she looks in her photoshoots and know shell never look that hot for me. Because when she poses for them she has her hair and makeup done professionally, custom wardrobes, oiled up, perfect lighting, cool scenery, sometimes naked on exotic beaches.
Seeing the normal version of her in my room will never compare to the super sexy characters she dresses up as for the photographers. To know that the sexiest best looking version of my girlfriend is for the men who pay her money would just kill my attraction over time. I definitely wouldn't turn down the opportunity to have a fling with a model tho.1
