Malignant Narcissitic Personality Disorder

Narcissistic Personality Disorder
From the DSM_IV
1. Has a grandiose sense of importance (exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as a superior_

2,Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love

3.Believes that he or she is “special” and nique and can only be understood by, or associate with, other special or high-status people

4.Require excessive admiration

5.Has a sense of entitlement

6.Is interpersonally exploitative i. e. takes advantage of others to achieve his or her
own ends (Kenny, Master of Music, Audrey, Joe D, Miceal= soon to follow)

7.Lack empathy.

8.Is often envious of others or believes others are envious of him

9.Shows arrogance.

In describing charismatic-messianic personalities like Jim Jones, Heinz Kohut observed:
“These persons do not live in accordance with the standards of an inner world regulated by guilt feelings-rather, they live in an archaic world, which, as the experience it, has inflicted the ultimate narcissistic injury on them, e.g., a world that has withdrawn its empathetic content form them after having first, as if to tease them, given them a taste of
security and delights. They respond to this injury by becoming super empathetic with themselves and with their own needs, and then have remained enraged about a world
that has tried to take them from something they consider to be rightfully their own-
i.e.-the parental, empathic, self-object.”d

From George Santayana’s book, The Life of Reason, comes with a passage of this context,
“Progress comes in a manhood and rests on the ability to change, to adapt, to retain past experience and learn from it. When past experience is not retained, infancy is perpetual-the conditions of children, savages, and barbarians.”
