Pin the Tail on the Narcissist!

It being a Holiday weekend and yesterday's post being so deep, I wanted to do something a little fun and different today. I usually keep the serious research and writing for the week and lighten up on the weekends anyway.

Today we are going to play Pin the Tail on the Narcissist! This is how it works. First I went to my cyber dictionary (again, I love this world). Then I did a Google search for Narcisstic Personality Disorder. This is what I found. (feel free to click this link and do your own searching too!)

  • Angel Fire: A pattern of grandiosity, excessive need for admiration, entitlement, and lack of empathy are the chief components in the diagnosis of NPD. These behaviors begin in early adulthood. A narcissistic individual is unable to trust others but replies on others to be a mirror which reflects back to him his unrealistic perception of his accomplishments, brilliance, talent, and beauty. A narcissistic individual has a fragile sense of self. To strengthen his sense of self he depends on other's admiration and constant attention. He expects other's to covet his possessions and he is constantly seeking compliments. Thus the narcissist develops numerous, shallow relationships to extract tributes from others.
    Because a narcissistic individual has a shifting morality--always ready to shift values to gain favor--any interaction with a narcissist is difficult.
  • Geo Cities: Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements); believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions); has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations. (There is much more here at this site!)
  • LANGUAGE, WORDS, and LIES: A Narcissists Arsenal: narcissists blame the world, of course, and not themselves for their personal disappointments. Narcissists are threatened and enraged by trivial disagreements, mistakes, and misunderstandings, plus they have evil mouths and will say ANYTHING, so if you continue to live or work with narcissists, expect to have to clean up after them, expect to lose friends over them, expect big trouble sooner or later.
  • 46 Characteristics of a NARCISSIST: (here's just a few)

1. Self-centered. His needs are paramount.
2. No remorse for mistakes or misdeeds.
3 Unreliable, undependable.
4. Does not care about the consequences of his actions.

5. Projects his faults on to others. High blaming behavior; never his fault.

8. Has a good front (persona) to impress and exploit others.

10. People are to be manipulated for his needs.

11. Rationalizes easily. Twists conversation to his gain at other’s expense. If trapped, keeps talking, changes the subject or gets angry.

14. No real values. Mostly situational.

Well, you get the idea. Now it's your turn to play. Just leave a comment and tell us who you think this describes? I have quite a list, and a certain news anchor and senator are at the top! Have FUN!!!! I can't wait to see what ya'll come up with!!!!

  • Jacques Chirac
    He morphs so well to fit the situation. And his approval rating is worse than any American president, but he doesn't care.
