Interesting Cut and Paste From the Mayo Clinic

Does the following description remind anyone of a current small-handed US politician?

Narcissistic Personality Disorder


By Mayo Clinic Staff

(November 2014)


If you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious. You often monopolize conversations. You may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior. You may feel a sense of entitlement — and when you don't receive special treatment, you may become impatient or angry. You may insist on having "the best" of everything — for instance, the best car, athletic club or medical care.

At the same time, you have trouble handling anything that may be perceived as criticism. You may have secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation. To feel better, you may react with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make yourself appear superior. Or you may feel depressed and moody because you fall short of perfection.

Many experts use the criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association, to diagnose mental conditions. This manual is also used by insurance companies to reimburse for treatment.

DSM-5 criteria for narcissistic personality disorder include these features:

  • Having an exaggerated sense of self-importance
  • Expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
  • Exaggerating your achievements and talents
  • Being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
  • Believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people
  • Requiring constant admiration
  • Having a sense of entitlement
  • Expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations
  • Taking advantage of others to get what you want
  • Having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
  • Being envious of others and believing others envy you
  • Behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner

Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence, it's not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal and value yourself more than you value others.

Risk Factors

Narcissistic personality disorder is rare. During childhood and teen years, children may show traits of narcissism, but this may simply be typical of their age and doesn't mean they'll go on to develop narcissistic personality disorder.

Narcissistic personality disorder affects more males than females, and it often begins in the teens or early adulthood.

Although the cause of narcissistic personality disorder isn't known, some researchers think that in biologically vulnerable children, parenting styles that overemphasize the child's specialness and criticize fears and failures may be partially responsible. The child may hide low self-esteem by developing a superficial sense of perfection and behavior that shows a need for constant admiration.”

Last I knew, Mayo did not recognize diseases, like chronic lyme, the rest of the world accepts. In other words, they're in the Dark Ages.

Nothing Trump can say can TOP THIS ASSHOLE!


"King O decrees that "ordinary people are too small minded to govern their own affairs" 


We all know fucking asshole OBOMBa is a legend in his own mind and so far from "ordinary".   He is the MAGIC NEGRO.  You see Trump will at least listen to people and perhaps change course, while OBOMBA will just drive the country full throttle over a cliff because where ever he is, he thinks he's the smartest person in the room.

Trump grew and managed a multi million dollar empire despite govenment.  Obama would be like a cat up a tree without government, unable to run a lemonaide stand.

Sure Trump a is narcissist, anyone can perceive that. However, he can not be diagnosed as having Narcissistic personality disorder. Why? Because Trump actually IS an extremely successful man (in terms of money and power at least), his narcissim does have support in reality. He is a billionaire and the fucking president.  In order for someone to have NPD there has to be a big disconnect between the person's image of themselves and reality (as in most personality disorders).  On the other hand if there is a correlation between the person's image of themselves (even if exaggerated to some extent) and reality, then clearly its just a personality trait and not a personality disorder. In this case Trump's narcissism just makes him an asshole, not a crazy person.

NPD is hardly "rare" these days.
[quote]Over the years, these questionnaires have been administered to many samples of college students, and analyses that bring all of the data together reveal that the average narcissism score has been steadily increasing and the average empathy score has been steadily decreasing ever since the questionnaires were developed [3.] The changes are highly significant statistically and sufficiently large that approximately 70 percent of students today score higher on narcissism and lower on empathy than did the average student thirty years ago[/quote]

Hmmm, well I didn't need the DSM chart nor the MAYO and RYE clinic to understand the trouble.

It's all a bubble folks, it's all a scam folks, it's all rigged folks, I love wikileaks folks  ..  DJT

DJT isn't the the trouble. The folks are the trouble!

Just read his book, it's all in there ...

 Yep way too many have not even started the work on themselves in the mirror. Life aint fair. Get over it.

  Dont like your place in this world? Change it or change you.

 Being a grown up is about taking responsability and not crying about it.

The MSM keeps singing the same tunes. Now, the tune is narcissism, before it was the Russians, before it was "can't be elected". The NSA has the communications on file to reveal the names of those instructing the MSM from on high.

I can "label" anyone a narcicist, indlucing this comedic relief fuck chin-nutz. That' the game, boy. It's one of many coordinated efforts to find a way to oust Trump. This one, mark my words, is going to put a lot of "physchiatrists" in jeopordy of losing their license.

VWAndy's picture

  Narcisists? lol. What a great way to demonize everyone worth a shit. These traits are pretty normal among the whip ass crowd of doers.

  Yes I think highly of myself. Yes I do get treated differently then most. Yes I am an asshole. Yes I will be hurting your feelings. Yes I use the word I a lot. 

   It comes with the teritory. They got a giant pile of names for people they are envious of. We got names for all the loosers too.

  Equality does not exist folks. No you will not be treated as everyones equal. Get over it. You will not be treated as MJs equal until you can whip everyones ass at basketball. Dont like it? Work on that jumpshot. It was true in grade school. You wont be BMOC unless you can be that guy. That means you have to prove yourself all by yourself when it matters. It was true as I worked my way up the skills ladder as a young tech. Two years in I was better than guys with ten years in the field. Because I took it apon myself to study my craft well.

 Yep I got me a huge ego. I fucking earned it too. You want to be respected? Fucking go out and earn it! Just that you know. They wont like you for it. No they will for sure hate you for it.

  Yes I was lucky in the gene pool. I also out worked most and studied harder too. The only way we can all be equals is if either I sandbag bigtime or the others step up.

 Let the hate begin. lol

 Thanks for that. I was a bit worried it was a little to strong. Somebody needed to say it.

"Equality does not exist folks. No you will not be treated as everyones equal.Get over it. You will not be treated as MJs equal until you can whip everyones ass at basketball. Dont like it? Work on that jumpshot."

Right right.

IMO it is worth noting that the 'every one of us snowflakes is different' meme has absolutely nothing to do with socialist values like "equality before the law", or everyone being "born to the same basic rights"; you know, the level playing field idea that is actually usually being referred to when 'the left' is discussing "Equality".

"Yes I was lucky in the gene pool."

Exactly, and contrarily, but quite clearly illustrating that you don't necessarily have to "prove yourself all by yourself" at all if you inherit wealth/power/advantage. Yet lots who do inherit their 'initial stake' (not you, of course) spend their entire lives acting exactly as if they 'achieved' their positions meritocratically; probably a defense mechanism. My point is that, as a rule, where you start from has a fuck of a lot more to do with how far you'll go.

So, if you (say) inherit the money and buy MJ's team, MJ will have to treat you with more respect than if you were simply his 'equal', he'll have to respect you as his boss, regardless of your skill sinking 3 pointers.

Another eg. might be inheriting a multi billion dollar mining company from your Dad and then claiming,

'The secret to my success was hard work'.

This is just me, but I have a shit tonne more respect for the guy who risks his own life to pull a stranger out of the way of an oncoming bus while asking for nothing in return (except maybe a "Thank you") than I do for a guy who can put a rubber ball through a metal hoop 7.5/10 shots. But we all know which is more hyped and marketable, so in your mind 'valuable'.

Also, humility is still a virtue, no?


VWAndy's picture

  Yes humility is one of the better virtues. Although it needs perspective.

   There is this thing. Being humble is nice and everything but it tends to leave the door open for others to take credit for my efforts. Thats been the case with many of my peers and its happened to me many times.

 That said Trump did manage to keep it all rolling. Thats no easy task the way things are now.

  This equality concept is a straight up mindjob. Thats not how nature works. Its not how society works. Its not how the dating game works either. To me its simply a ruse to allow egalitary authority to step in and short change the efforts of the best of society in favor of the less worthy.

  It comes down to where each of us set the bar. When we set the bar do we set it high enough to make the world a better place? Or do we set the bar out of everyones reach? Thats the rub. I try to set the bar at my limits. But asking others to reach it even though they are shorter is just rude. Now these people that set the bar out of everyones reach is another thing. That ticks me off greatly and will when possible make the person trying that stunt jump first. I already set the bar to a standard I have reached. And showed everyone how its done.

Oh come now, chindit13, these traits established by the crypto medical set remind me of ALL the shit bag presidents I've suffered through in my lifetime. Not defending "Flip Flop" Trump, who is going to make it possible for Pocahontas to be El Presidente after this George Bush Clone on steroids gets done. Trump was disgusting with his Jew suck up comments last week.

WarPony's picture

Always consider the source, as it's well known that a common tactic of the zionista creature is to characterize their enemy with their own traits - as I thought the author was describing his own self at first - oh he who awoke on third and thought he'd hit a triple.  S'pose it may take one to know one though, so there may be that too.  That the leader of the free world who happens to be a billionaire with a hot wife and amazing children might be slightly conceited is certainly a most astute and profound observation that one must have been reared under a rock to not have noticed ~ brilliant!  Please enlighten us further, oh mediocre one.  Is night dark and water also wet?

Ike was the last "good" president we had and he would be shouted down as a "conspiracy theorist" or "isolationist" in today's America.

It is the American PEOPLE who are fucking crazy if they think that somehow TPTB are going to go quietly into the night while we MAGA.

WATCH, look and listen to learn.

"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."

A parting message from America's last "good" president;

BlussMann's picture

Ike was a dirty little murdering fan boy of Marx and Communist Russia. He invaded Little Rock to begin the destruction of civilization in the South and ultimately the rest of the country. Not to mention the deliberate starvation of over a million German POW's. He was a bloody bastard. The MIC made that Shitbag.

Yes, the circle is closing and Trump is the end product of so many decades of 'dumbing down' the masses... rich as well as the poor. This description of Trump and his ego isn't news.... anyone with half a brain already knew that, but they then have to do the analysis on Hillary who fits all the traits of a psychopath... her and her good friend Soros.... and so many others... pathologicals are the perfect tools for the SG in herding the masses, culling the masses, and then disposal of the tools, same as is usually done in major hits such as the one on Kennedy.... close the circle.

Sounds like a description of Jews.

That's because they have the highest psychopathic ratio in the world... civilizations come and go and they continue to fine tune this innate nature... like attracts like... birds of a feather.... and they feed off of their own, like Soros... like so  many of them more than willing to sacrifice others in their group.... those not psychopaths... that is their Final Solution.... if you aren't 'chosen', then you are expendable.

Psychiatrists oft project their deficiencies onto others.

keep the bastards honest's picture

well said. I saw 10 plus 2 psychiatrists in order to be recognised as having PTSD and they  were the worst POS. No accountalbilty and projective at minimum, incompetant. FReud was was another POS.  Anyway that narcissistic  description above is just more of the same. Who cares.

The important  one is the Narc/psychopath/controller spectrum, geneticly hardwired so dont experience love but  constantly run  a sadistic pleasure urge at the suffering of human animal  and plant. And if  a parent, can be  nice to a child  if sadistically evil to the other forever. Then its projection, imitating others emotions, learns to manipulate them  young, lies, and sees fast how  to wind other up  to promise their dreams(like election campaigns). Mel Gibson is a good example. Accused his girlfriend of all he did himself. This is all under conscious control so they can behave immaculately. If  they do be kind and nice for a day or  two without an outlet  for sadism they can do it to themselves. Key thing is its inherited and cant be fixed. Phych usually dont  get genetics.

I reckon some countries have more of these people.

About 6 of these criteria probably apply to Trump.  ALL of them applied to Obama who is actually a sociopath.

Regardless, narcissism is NOT grounds for removal from office.  If it was, at least half of our presidents would have been toast.

This asshole is boring on the boards, and yet with this kind of tripe the Tylers keep giving him article space.  Geez, we'd be better off with Bruce Wilds publishing on ZH, but I guess Chindit must have deeper pockets - or maybe just a deeper throat. 

Trogdor's picture

I look at it this way:  It's ZH giving the Left their chance to show how fucking insanely hypocritical they are.  As others have stated, Obuttboy could have eaten a live baby on CSPAN, and Chindit and his ilk would have squealed with pleasure and applauded his bravery for destroying such a horrible monster as a baby ... which could have, after all, destroyed the lives of so many Feminists.

It's stomach churning to read articles like this - and the semi-literate comments that support it - but it does remind me that, Yes, there are organisms out there that look like humans who have absolutely zero cognitive capacity.  As another commenter wrote, "There is stupid out there that's so strong ... it bends light"

And are in the First Stage of Grief.....DENIAL.

Where were you the last 8 years of Obama? This describes Obama perfectly. Just what we need: the useless MSM invading ZeroHedge. Keep posting crap like this and we'll all go elsewhere. I am not a Trump supporter, but I find it insane that those who complain about what he does wouldn't even blink if Obama did it. Shut up and sit down, Socialist/Communist. I find it funny that those who suddenly trot out the Constitution now have been content for it to be trampled for 8 years. The inmates are running the asylum at ZeroHedge.

"We all know this is aimed at Obama. Let's compare the two.

Trump, self made billionaire, Obama never earned a cent from his own labor."


Well...sacredfire....I know one thing for certain.  Your parents should have been arrested and jailed for child abuse.  Why you ask ?  Because it's obvious from your answer that your parents sent you off to Public Shcool ( Government School ) shows that you are still in the MATRIX....the one where you are totally controlled by the Elites, such as Drumpf, yet you are spoon fed everyday and you accept the illusion that you have an American Dream to aspire to.

That's ok.  That's why Fight Club is here.  To beat that shit out of you.


For instance......Orange Nautilus ....( I give him that name since although he is not a Goldman bankster per se he has swam with them all his life and surrounds himself with them in his cabinet ).....INHERITED his money from his FATHER.....and his FATHER inherited his money from GRANDFATHER DRUMPF.


Sorry...tis true.  Orange Nautlius was BORN into the purple.  He is NOT self made.  If he WERE to be SELF made he would have the power to print all the money he needed to build his real esate empire.  But no.....all Trump's money first came from his father's inheritence and his grandfather's inheritence which all FIRST CAME FROM A BANKER.


And in terms of labor.....Orange Nautilus never turned a spade of dirt in his life.  His labor has ONLY been simply finding the smartest accountants and the smartest lawyers to handle his FATHER'S money and his GRANDFATHER'S money in order to enrich himself.

Orange Nautilus's labor has only been MARKETING himself as a "sure winner".   That's it....and that's all.


Sorry to burst your bubble Trumpflake.  But just like the Magic Negro.....Trump is NOT a self made man.



HalEPeno's picture

Here's the deal Wuffy. Trump grew his inheritance exponentially. It is a lot easier and much more common for silver spooners to spend an inheritance than to grow it.  Most people who get a few grand will simply go out and buy stuff.  They won't grow it or even save it for a rainy day.
