When did 'self-centered' become 'narcissistic'?

I was just reading 'self-centered' as a description of Philip Roth from a 1996 NYT article and thought quietly to myself 'Now they'd describe him as a 'narcissist''. The word 'narcissist' is used constantly on DL. I guess narcissist is a stronger word and therefore a stronger insult. Or have I got it totally wrong? If so, please set me straight.
