The Age of Narcissism

We have entered a new era in this country.  One I am not proud to be part of nor do I wish for it’s survival into our future.  We are now in the age of narcissism.  Much was made of the “me” generation several years back, but they had nothing on this current generation of egomaniacs.  Things have gotten so bad that even the Psychology/Psychiatric industry have taken notice.  A few years ago (during O’s run up to the presidency) they began the process of removing Narcissistic Personality Disorder from the upcoming release of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5th edition.

What has brought this on?  How about a school system that rewards mediocrity?  How about sporting events that no longer even keep score in the fear of alienating someone?  How about a culture that embraces relativism at any cost?  Also much damage has been done by an internet culture that convinces every teen out there that his/her opinion is not only equal but actually superior to all others.  Twitter, Facebook, and many others have convinced teens that they are wise beyond their years, they consider their follower counts as proof of their abilities and importance.  Now we have a President in this country that represents what they have always believed about themselves, that the “cool factor” is all that matters.  It doesn’t matter one whit that he has accomplished nothing of substance, it doesn’t matter that he continues to destroy any chance of a future that any of these kids could ever have.  All that matters is that he is cool.  He’s not a boring, old, white man with too much money and not enough coolness.

 

The Age of Narcissism is upon us, may it die soon.

 

 

 

We are raising a generation of deluded narcissists

A new analysis of the American Freshman Survey, which has accumulated data for the past 47 years from 9 million young adults, reveals that college students are more likely than ever to call themselves gifted and driven to succeed, even though their test scores and time spent studying are decreasing.

Psychologist Jean Twenge, the lead author of the analysis, is also the author of a study showing that the tendency toward narcissism in students is up 30 percent in the last thirty-odd years.
This data is not unexpected.  I have been writing a great deal over the past few years about the toxic psychological impact of media and technology on children, adolescents and young adults, particularly as it regards turning them into faux celebrities—the equivalent of lead actors in their own fictionalized life stories.

On Facebook, young people can fool themselves into thinking they have hundreds or thousands of “friends.” They can delete unflattering comments. They can block anyone who disagrees with them or pokes holes in their inflated self-esteem. They can choose to show the world only flattering, sexy or funny photographs of themselves (dozens of albums full, by the way), “speak” in pithy short posts and publicly connect to movie stars and professional athletes and musicians they “like.”

Using Twitter, young people can pretend they are worth “following,” as though they have real-life fans, when all that is really happening is the mutual fanning of false love and false fame.

 

A Fate That Narcissists Will Hate: Being Ignored

By CHARLES ZANOR
Published: November 29, 2010

 

Narcissists, much to the surprise of many experts, are in the process of becoming an endangered species.

Not that they face imminent extinction — it’s a fate much worse than that. They will still be around, but they will be ignored.

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (due out in 2013, and known as DSM-5) has eliminated five of the 10 personality disorders that are listed in the current edition.

Narcissistic personality disorder is the most well-known of the five, and its absence has caused the most stir in professional circles.

Most nonprofessionals have a pretty good sense of what narcissism means, but the formal definition is more precise than the dictionary meaning of the term.

Our everyday picture of a narcissist is that of someone who is very self-involved — the conversation is always about them. While this characterization does apply to people with narcissistic personality disorder, it is too broad. There are many people who are completely self-absorbed who would not qualify for a diagnosis of N.P.D.

The central requirement for N.P.D. is a special kind of self-absorption: a grandiose sense of self, a serious miscalculation of one’s abilities and potential that is often accompanied by fantasies of greatness. It is the difference between two high school baseball players of moderate ability: one is absolutely convinced he’ll be a major-league player, the other is hoping for a college scholarship.

    Mars, the DSM IV eliminated narcissistic personality disorder on the link you posted. But what other 4 dx did they eliminate?

    I might have missed the link in your post.

    Narcissistic? Someone who inserted himself into all the historical and biographical tidbits on the White House website even if they had nothing to do with him? Someone who posted a picture of himself to commemorate Neil Armstrong, and another one of himself to commemorate Rosa Parks’ bus sitdown? Someone who babbled incoherently about himself and his family childhood roadtrip at the funeral of Hawaii Senator Daniel Inouye?

    How could anyone possibly say this was a narcissistic man?

    Why not? They drug little boys for being little boys under the auspices of ADHD.

    If I had to guess -- and it IS just a guess -- they’re removing it because they can’t fix it. If they can’t fix it then it can’t be a psychiatric illness then can it? It’s simply another notch on the ‘normal’ continuum.

    One might consider some of the psycho behavior by, say, school shooters as being a sort of “Silver Chair Syndrome,” for those of you familiar with the Narnia books.

    In that book, a witch has captured the Prince of Narnia and is holding him under an enchantment which must be renewed every evening by tying him into an enchanted silver chair. He is sane for a while in the chair, until its magic puts him under the spell again.

    One could say that the violent reactions by some children as they try to break free of the drugs they are under are a sort of “Silver Chair Syndrome”—or, if you prefer Harry Potter, a reaction to the Imperius Curse of psychotropic drugs.

    If I had to guess — and it IS just a guess — they’re removing it because they can’t fix it. If they can’t fix it then it can’t be a psychiatric illness then can it? It’s simply another notch on the ‘normal’ continuum.

    Such as, for instance, endorsing self-mutilation and legal normalization (including falsifying birth records) for the mental disorder of “transgenderism,” since they have no means of actually addressing it.

    There are different kinds of “pushing.” Pushing ADHD on boys is a way of denigrating and devaluating masculine behavior, making normal male behavior an “illness” requiring treatment.

    Almost direct quote. He is a terrific good guy. Didn’t mention Gore but said since he’s isn’t an alarmist. He said they aren’t looking at all the data. But little segments when data fits what they want/believe. Fun to hear him talking about anything including sports.

    He also said something neat about having a family strengthens a man.

    Well, it is self-mutilation to encourage a man to self-castrate and grow breasts, and to encourage a woman to remove her breasts and create a prosthetic penis.

    As I have observed before, no matter how fancy a uniform you wear, no matter how good your French, no matter how much you may sincerely believe you are Napoleon, you are not, in fact, Napoleon. No matter how much you may chop and channel your body and sincerely believe you are the opposite sex, you are not, in fact, a member of the opposite sex.

    That’s one of the hallmarks of advocacy “studies.”

    Look at how they twist the facts in studies of “gun violence.” They took the fact that the vast majority of homicide victims know their killer and twisted it into a claim that most people are murdered by friends or relatives, which isn’t true.

    No, have to look for it. Two sets of data should be front page news but that’d go against phony progressivism

    Keep appealing.

    PHILADELPHIA — A federal judge has rejected the argument of the Mennonite owners of a central Pennsylvania furniture manufacturing company that new health care requirements that they pay for employees‘ contraceptive services violate their free speech and religion rights.

    U.S. District Judge Mitchell Goldberg on Friday rejected a preliminary injunction sought by the owners of Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., saying Norman Hahn and his family were unlikely to prevail in their case. He said they had not proven that complying with the new health care law amounted to a “substantial burden” on their religious rights.

    Attorney Charles W. Proctor III told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the Hahns plan to appeal.

    “We think it‘s well thought out,” attorney Charles W. Proctor III said of the decision. “We just don‘t agree with it.”

    I remember an Easter Camp out my neighborhood had at one of the area lakes.

    Sunday morning the kids (there were a lot) were going to do the Easter egg hunt.

    That night I decided that some of those plastic eggs would not have candy, toys, or coins in them. Some would be left by Rocco the Rotten Rabbit instead of the Easter Bunny. Those eggs would have twigs, dirt, and discarded paper.

    Needles to say it was quite a suprise for the kids when they found one of Rocco’s eggs.

    And a funny thing happened.

    At first there was the expected whining and crying.

    And then they thought it was pretty funny and were giggling because everyone got at least one of Rocco’s eggs.

    They were dealing with it.

    When you say country, do you mean
    1.the people or
    2. government and security forces of that nation?

    In Western Europe it will be the Brits where the people rise up against the
    Muzz first (EDL) and the French who will be the first to deploy their security forces
    against the Muzz.

    In Eastern Europe the Russians and Serbs have already been whacking Turban heads and I suppose given their history the Poles would be no slouches in that department either.

    Sorry this is a drive by. After Downton Abby I did some readig and channel surfing -- came across BBC America and their interiveiw with Piers Morgan. Here is what he said:

    …”a deranged young man who can get these assault rifles if he wants from a local super store like Wal Mart”

    What a liar. That has nothing to do with what happened at Newtown. I found a link to that interview. Scroll down to the heading

    Piers Morgan has no regrets over calling U.S. gun lobby stupid

    I’ve known people like that. I live in a motorhome and whenever something comes in something else must go OUT. Mail gets opened in a public place where there is a trash can.

    Hoarding is a genuine disease. People die buried in their own rubbish.
