NOTED PSYCHOLOGIST: OBAMA = NARCISSIST
TruthInConviction ^ | Dec 29 | J. Grant Swank, Jr.

Posted on 12/29/2009 2:19:36 PM PST by freedomyes

Dr. Sam Vaknin, psychologist, noted “Obama’s shallowness. . .an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling.

“His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama’s speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history."

Yeah, this isn’t the first time a doctor has diagnosed that. But the more who do, the more it might get out to the sheeple.

I believe Charles Krauthammer, the syndicated columnist who is also a psychiatrist made such a diagnosis a year or so ago.....

Those of us who have personal experience with Narcissists spotted him as one at the Democratic National Convention.

I spotted his shallow narcissistic personality from the get-go - but, I have an unfair advantage as I’m a psychologist. Unfortunately the sheople were blinded by stupidity and voted the clown into office.

I have read Vaknin’s Malignant Narcissist and he is spot on. My sister in law fits the description to a T. Reading his material helped me a great deal in learning how to survive when I had to be around her. I have not been back “home” in 9 years. When you recognize who is a narcissist you have to make decisions for your own survival.

Sam Vaknin is not a psychologist but is himself a pathological narcissist who has devoted many years of his life to the study of his illness. He operates a website that has a wealth of excellent and uniquely insightful information. He, like any expert, has his own biases and had written a prior article stating that George Bush was also a narcissist and part of his diagnosis was based on his assumption that Bush ‘enjoyed’ getting soldiers killed etc. Obviously I don’t agree with his Bush diagnoses because it relies on mind reading - he makes assumptions about what Bush’s motives ‘must’ be whereas OBama’s narcissism requires mere observation - Obama’s constant need to refer to himself in speeches, his lack of interest in governing in spite of his need to be constantly acknowledged as Caesar. His thoughtlessness and preening posturing and his belief that his mere presence will solve the world’s problems.
I appreciate those who try to get the word out about Obama but many of us tried in thread after thread as soon as Obama showed up as a presidential candidate. I dunno - maybe more people will believe it now that they have seen him but psychologists and the average joe like us were warning about this prior to the election and for some reason - it just didn’t seem to matter to people.

For those who agree that Obama is a narcissist, there is another avenue (also discussed at length during the primary) you may want to explore if you are interested. It is the belief shared by many that Obama uses a sales/persuasive technique used as NLP which uses cognitive ‘tricks’ to manipulate audiences (think Hitler). It’s a form of hypnosis used by unscrupulous lawyers, politicians, and yes - carnival hypnotists, and thus far it is the only document I have seen that wraps the oddness of Obama into one package (for example - those symbols and emblems he uses, his body language, his TELEPROMPTER!,the way his signs read attached to the podium, his odd phrasing and most of all - the bizarre way some of his audiences fainted and fawned over nothing - and by that I mean his speeches). I’ll put the link below - the document is in an academic format and when I initially read it - I had to skim the repetitive parts in the first 20 percent of the document and then it got better (detailed and specific) as I got further into the document and I recall that the footnotes also made for interesting reading.

As per post #24, Vaknin is not a psychologist. He’s not really anything.

Actually he has another site I really benefited from: http://samvak.tripod.com/
Though the opening page doesn’t necessarily look like there’s much information there, once you start following the links you can find article after article pertaining to specific topics - I found his autobiographical postings interesting as well.

I made a "quick reference" to Joanna Ashmun's article on Narcissism. Just going down through the "traits" ... this one is easy to diagnose!

Check his own website, SamVak.

"The author is NOT A MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL.

The author is certified in Psychological Counseling Techniques by Brainbench."

Do you know what a certification from Brainbench is? It's nothing.

He is not a psychologist. His PhD is in philosophy and from the unaccredited Pacific Western University.

He is not a psychologist. He's not anything.

Obama a narcissist? Why, who would have thunk it? Golly gee, if the esteemed J. Grant Swank Jr. hadn't taken time out of his busy day to tell us this, we wouldn't have a clue!

No, wait...there were MULTIPLE articles, some going into the clinical reasons for holding this view, posted right on FR, many months BEFORE the election.

You like to think you "there isn't time" to give answer to Freepers?

How about telling us why you post on FR everything & anything Swank publishes on the web? Hmmm? How about that one?

Do you work for him? That's a yes or no question.

Choose the 2-letter word, or the 3-letter word, and hit 'post'.

You "have the time", buddy, quit pretending you don't.

those who can’t compose, carp.

it takes no brains to continue your litany of carping.

don’t you realize that you are exposing your ignorance by carping while not producing one knowledgeable article on this site or any other reading venue in the world?

end of discussion with you.

happy new year.
