Posted on 01/25/2010 2:30:04 PM PST by jazminerose
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV-TR) is the diagnostic manual used by mental health professionals. A diagnosis of narcissism requires five out of nine characteristics. Note these traits must endure overtime and must not be reactions to a particular situation or environmental stressor:
Grandiose sense of self-importance. Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, beauty, or ideal love. Sense of specialness, belief he can only be understood by or should associate only with other special or high-status individuals or institutions. Need for excessive admiration. Heightened sense of entitlement, leading to unreasonable expectations that others should treat him especially favorably or comply automatically with his expectations. Tendency to be interpersonally exploitive. A person with NPD does not hesitate in taking advantage of others to meet his own ends. Lack of empathy, an inability or unwillingness to recognize or identify with the feelings or needs of others. An envy of other people, or conversely, a belief that other people envy him. A tendency toward arrogant behavior or attitude.

Odumbo meets 12 of them
So they’re saying this is a bad thing? Like abnormal? I don’t feel like it’s my fault if I’m better than everyone else, I was just born that way.
Yes, he can really run the table on this one.
Dr. Charles Krauthammer, seasoned psychiatrist that he is, has referred to Obama as a narcissist on more than one occasion.
When someone of Dr. Krauthammer's professional experience speaks about this particular NARCISSIST referred to as Obama, then I am inclined to listen to him.
On Narcissistic Rage:
"Common to malignant narcissism is narcissistic rage. Narcissistic rage is a reaction to narcissistic injury (when the narcissist feels degraded by another person, typically in the form of criticism). When the narcissist's grandiose sense of self-worth is perceivably being attacked by another person, the narcissist's natural reaction is to rage and pull-down the self-worth of others (to make the narcissist feel superior to others)."
This explanation is in keeping with Obama's crashing poll numbers, and his narcissistic rage is communicated through his responsive attacks toward President Bush.
Also, Obama meets all of the requirements for diagnosis as a damn PSYCHOPATH per Factor 1 / Agressive Narcissism under the Hare Psychopathy Checklist.
Factor 1: Personality "Aggressive narcissism"
- Glibness/superficial charm
- Grandiose sense of self-worth
- Pathological lying
- Lack of remorse or guilt
- Shallow affect
- Callous/lack of empathy
- Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
That cocky head angle is all the proof I need.
With his finger on the trigger....
WHY DO YOU POST STUFF LIKE THAT? IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT YOU KNOW.
Well at least I don’t post in all caps dummy.
Remember the ultimate narcissit, Louis XV, who said, "After me, the deluge." Meaning he would be the LAST French king.
You think Obama may be planning to be THE LAST PRESIDENT of the United States???
Lol good one.
