Narcissistic Personality Disorder involves arrogant behavior, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration-all of which must be consistently evident at work and in relationships. People who are narcissistic are frequently described as cocky, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. Narcissists may concentrate on unlikely personal outcomes (e.g., fame) and may be convinced that they deserve special treatment. Related Personality Disorders: Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic. Narcissism is a less extreme version of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of mirrors.
Narcissists tend to have high self-esteem. However, narcissism is not the same thing as self-esteem; people who have high self-esteem are often humble, whereas narcissists rarely are. It was once thought that narcissists have high self-esteem on the surface, but deep down they are insecure. However, the latest evidence indicates that narcissists are actually secure or grandiose at both levels. Onlookers may infer that insecurity is there because narcissists tend to be defensive when their self-esteem is threatened (e.g., being ridiculed); narcissists can be aggressive. The sometimes dangerous lifestyle may more generally reflect sensation-seeking or impulsivity (e.g., risky sex, bold financial decisions).
Everything is celebration of me.
Upon the notice of the death of Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama sent out a tweet:
A picture of himself. Mandela’s passing is about how it affects Barack. This is nothing new. after Michael Phelps’ achievements in the Olympics Obama sent this out:
Following Clint Eastwood’s smackdown of Obama at the GOP Convention Obama sent this one out:
When Neil Armstrong passed last year, this is how Obama honors Armstrong:
When Will and Kate welcomed their new child? This is what went out:
On the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination? You know it:
On the commemoration of Rosa Parks refusal to surrender her seat on the bus?
By this time you even you lefties might have caught on to something here. After having acted as such obedient lapdogs for so long, even the twits in the press are noticing that Obama is playing them for the fools they are. At least, Ron Fournier notices:
New York Times photographer Doug Mills strode into Jay Carney’s office Oct. 29 with a pile of pictures taken exclusively by President Obama’s official photographer at events the White House press corps was forbidden to cover. “This one,” Mills said, sliding one picture after another off his stack and onto the press secretary’s desk. “This one, too–and this one and this one and …”
The red-faced photographer, joined by colleagues on the White House Correspondents’ Association board, finished his 10-minute presentation with a flourish that made Carney, a former Moscow correspondent for Time, wince.
“You guys,” Mills said, “are just like Tass.”
Comparing the White House to the Russian news agency is a hyperbole, of course, but less so with each new administration. Obama’s image-makers are taking advantage of new technologies that democratized the media, subverting independent news organizations that hold the president accountable. A generation ago, a few mainstream media organizations held a monopoly on public information about the White House. Today, the White House itself is behaving monopolistically.
Read the article to see how Obama manipulates the press in order to put himself in what he believes to be the most flattering light using his own photographers. Obama has been doing this for years and not simply with photographs.
Everything is about Barack. There is nothing else.
Extreme narcissism is also the characteristic of a psychopath.
