Interesting discussion of what a person who claims personal experience with narcissistic personality disorder suggests we can expect from Trump in office. It ain't pretty.

How about we count how many times Trump says "I" compared to how many times Obama said it during speeches.

Only the most partisan a-holes think Obama is a narcissist. Most Americans like him, and nearly all of them think he's a great guy who loves his wife and children, even if they disagree with him politically.

None of those qualities mean he isn't a narcissist. I think anyone that seriously runs for President has at least some narcissism.

On the bright side, you might get to keep your job.



As opposed to a guy who literally admitted he had no idea what to do.



So maybe have a guy who believes in his own abilities can sometimes be an asset.

Replace "I" with him using "Trump" in the third person and it's probably rather staggering.

Perhaps your deployment of the word narcissist is rather too casual unless you have some deeper connection to the DSM than your posts suggest.

And then there's you. Please, what is your pedigree vis-a-vis psychological nomenclature? Perhaps the combined might of Dashi, Koldfoot and deadkenny can share their depth of experience in this field. Does it go beyond Google-fu?

Obama gave the queen of england an ipod with his speeches on it, when she gave him a pen carved from the wood of a slave ship.
Obama, is a narcissist.

So you offer an incomplete example as demonstration of your command of psychological terminology?

If you read the whole story, the iPod presented to the Queen, allegedly at her request, also contained a rather large set of audio and visual files. She was coronated in 1953 and first visited the US as Queen in 1957. The iPod contained photos of her visits to the US in 1957 which coincided with the 350th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown. There were also photos of here visit to the US in 2007 which symbolically represented the 50 year span of her reign at that time and her nations relationship to the US. There were also songs, videos, a signed playbook by Richard Rodgers AND a could of Obamas speeches. Evidently she already had a complete audio file of all these items and had requested the iPod so she could enjoy the pictures and videos as well.

You somehow think this is strong evidence of a narcissistic personality disorder as per the DSM?

I ask you again, what, if any, basis do you claim any mastery of this subject?

Every human being has some narcissism (especially politicians). It's part of the human condition. That doesn't mean they are a full blown narcissist.

So let's get this straight. Trump promises back in April that he'll get Carrier to keep ALL those jobs in the US AND "make them pay a damn tax".

What does he deliver? He gives them a sweetheart deal of a TAX BREAK and they still ship most of those jobs offshore.

Donald "bend me over and fuck me raw" Trump the world class negotiator.

in fairness, it's your own fault for not immediately assuming that the use of any noun that was even slightly pejorative in a reference to the office of President would not immediately result in "you mean like OBAMA RIGHT, OBAMA IS THE BAD THING"

"Narcissisic Personality Disorder" is emphatically not the same thing as simply being narcissistic. When formally diagnosed, it carries with it a raft of pathological behaviours that people who just like themselves a bit too much won't exhibit.

Trump certainly displays NPD-like behaviours, but he would definitely score enough on the PCL-R scale to be considered a psychopath.

EDIT: To put in context of the post I was replying to - quoting didn't work the first time

Get used to it we'll be hearing it from the professional hypocrites for the next 4-8 years.

Trump isn't a narcissist, he just recognizes the fact that he is the only person with the ability to pull The United States of America out of its death spiral, which means he's the only person who can save human civilization, which means he's the greatest man who has ever lived.

The true narcissist is the loser that can't accept her loss and has recruited another loser to demand recounts.

Except for being totally right. Hitler-y is a sore loser. And Stein is fronting for her.
