What the Research Says about Austin

According to this study, creative types are likely to be narcissistic. And per THIS report, Austin is ranked one of the top three American (non NYC) cities for writers.

If you feel like everyone around you in Austin is a little self-absorbed, you’re probably right.

But then again, this study points out how literature boosts one's social skills.

In the end, we are a city of narcissists with fantastic social skills.

 Sounds about right.
