The self-centeredness or vanity of an individual expressing itself through dysphoria caused by the inability to pause, rewind, or fast-forward stimuli or events occurring around him or her in the same way he or she can pause a TiVo or other media device.

-Temporal narcissism is often seen when people regrettably remember that they can't rewind the movie they're watching at the movie theater when they couldn't make out what was said.

-Example of temporal narcissism: Driving home from work today, I got really indignant after remembering I couldn't pause the radio while I ordered dinner at the drive-through window.
