Narziss

 

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio
(1571-1610) italienischer Maler

 

 

Der Narzissmus liegt allen schweren psychischen Erkrankungen zugrunde. Der Narzisst kann die Welt zwar intellektuell, aber nicht emotional als eigenständige Welt wahrnehmen.
Erich Fromm (1900-1980) deutsch-US-amerikanischer Sozialpsychologe, Psychoanalytiker, humanistischer Philosoph, Autor, Die Kraft der Liebe. Über Haben und Sein, Liebe und Gewalt, Leben und Tod, Diogenes, 3. Auflage 26. März 2014

 


 

Wortherkunft und Beschreibung des Narzissmus

 


Echo und Narziss, 1903
John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) englischer Maler, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool



Sigmund Freud prägte den Begriff Narzissmus mit Bezug auf den griechischen Mythos von Narziss, der sich in sein Spiegelbild im Teich verliebte / fixierte.
Narziss weckte in den Menschen die Liebe, ohne sie selbst erwidern zu können. Die schöne Bergnymphe Echo verschmähte er, worauf sie an Liebeskummer zugrunde ging. Aphrodite, die Göttin der Schönheit und Liebe, bestrafte Narziss hart für seine Liebesunfähigkeit. Er sollte leiden an unstillbarer Selbstverliebtheit ins eigene Abbild, das eigene legendäre Image, das echtes Mit-Fühlen ersetzen soll. Die Entfremdung vom wahren Selbst mündete in Narziss' Tod, der als stark duftende Narzisse weiterexistiert.

 

Narzissmus drückt sich als Egoismus, Selbstgefälligkeit, Geltungsbedürfnis aus. Ein Narzisst hat übermäßiges Interesse an der eigenen Person, der eigenen Bedeutung und Größe, den eigenen Fähigkeiten; er lebt egozentrisch. Die emotionale Grundstimmung des Narzissten ist "Niemand-hat-mir-zu-sagen-was-ich-tun-soll!"
Die innere Befindlichkeit des Narzissmus beruht auf einem leeren beziehungsweise fragmentierten Selbst, das versucht, die Leere zu füllen, indem es sich selbst erhöht, sich von anderen bewundern lässt und andere entwürdigt oder erniedrigt.

Kriterien der Narzisstische Persönlichkeitsstörung (NPS)

Laut den Angaben des US-amerikanischen psychiatrischen Handbuchs DSM-IV müssen bei einer NPS mindestens fünf folgender neun Verhaltenskriterien vorhanden sein:

  1. Grandiosität (Realitätsverlust), übertriebene Vorstellung der eigenen Wichtigkeit, Eitelkeit, Imagepflege
  2. Phantasien von grenzenlosem Erfolg, Einfluss, idealisierte Liebe mit Komplementärnarzissten
  3. Besonderssein, Betonung der eigenen Einzigartigkeit
  4. Strebt exzessive Bewunderung an, Selbstverliebtheit
  5. Anspruchsdenken, übertriebene Erwartung, bevorzugt zu werden
  6. Ausbeutung zwischenmenschlicher Beziehungen, um gesellschaftlichen Einfluss zu gewinnen
  7. Mangel an Empathie
  8. Neid auf andere, unterstellt anderen Neid auf sich
  9. Stolz, Arroganz, Hochmut

 

Zusatzkriterien: Überempfindlichkeit gegenüber Kritik, Streben nach Dominationsmacht, Herrschaftsanspruch

Persönliche Bekenntnisse
Nach 45 Tagen Sexsucht-Therapie: Öffentliche Beichte wegen fortgesetzten Ehebruchs [einer milliardenschweren Sportikone]

  • Charakter und Anständigkeit zählen. […]
    Ich habe aufgehört, nach den Grundwerten [des Buddhismus, meiner Religion] zu leben, an die zu glauben mir beigebracht wurde. […]
    Ich bedaure meinen Egoismus zutiefst. Ich muss vieles wiedergutmachen. Ich habe noch einen langen Weg vor mir.
    Ich war untreu, ich hatte Affären, ich habe [meine Frau] betrogen und ich war unehrlich. Ich habe Schande über mich gebracht. [...]
    Ich bin der Einzige, der Schuld trägt.
    Ich dachte, ich könnte alles machen, was ich wollte. Ich dachte, ich habe mein gesamtes Leben hart gearbeitet und dachte, dass es mir zusteht, all die Versuchungen um mich herum zu genießen. Ich dachte, ich hätte das verdient. Dank meines Geldes und meiner Berühmtheit musste ich nicht weit gehen, um sie zu finden. Ich lag falsch. Ich war töricht. Ich darf nicht nach anderen Regeln spielen. Dieselben Regeln, die für jeden gelten, gelten auch für mich.
    Ich habe viele Menschen enttäuscht und vor allem meiner Frau und meinen Kindern große Schmerzen zugefügt. Es tut mir leid. […] Sie [seine Frau Elin Nordegren] wird meine Entschuldigung nicht an Worten, sondern an Taten in der Zeit messen. [...]
    Ich habe viel Zeit gehabt, darüber nachzudenken, was ich getan habe. Mein Scheitern brachte mich dazu, mich zu erforschen, in einer Weise, die ich bisher vermieden hatte. [...] Ich erkenne, dass ich mich ändern muss. Ich bemühe mich, ein besserer Mann zu werden. […]
    Es ist schwer einzugestehen, dass ich Hilfe brauche. Es ist jedoch so.
    Tiger Woods (*1975) US-amerikanischer Profigolfer, erfolgreichster Golfspieler der Sportgeschichte, Tiger Woods: Öffentliche Beichte "Ich dachte, das steht mir zu", präsentiert von der deutschen Tageszeitung Süddeutsche Zeitung, Michael König, 19. Februar 2010
  • New Age war – trotz der berechtigten Grundintuition nach Ganzheitlichkeit – ein Missverständnis. Es war eine Verwechslung von prä-rational mit trans-rational und von magischem Narzissmus mit transzendentalem Bewusstsein. Aber New Age war auch ein Missverständnis, das letztlich den Boden bereitet hat dafür, dass wir heute eine echte Wissenschaft des Geistes für das 21. Jahrhundert aufbauen können.   Ken Wilber (*1949) US-amerikanischer mystischer Philosoph, Vordenker des 3. Jahrtausends, transpersonaler Bewusstseinsforscher, Entwickler der Integralen Theorie, Autor, Quelle unbekannt

 

  • Warum bloß steigt Narziss aus dem Fluß seiner Lebendigkeit aus? Die Antwort des Mythos auf diese Frage ist folgende: Narziss wurde in der Vergewaltigung einer Nymphe durch einen Flußgott gezeugt. So trägt er in sich das traumatische Vorurteil, dass Lebendigkeit destruktiv sei. In ihm stoßen die Triebkraft des Flussgottes und die Panik der Nymphe aufeinander. In Identifizierung mit dieser, seiner Nymphe, bedeutet Lebendigkeit für ihn Überwältigung, Autonomieverlust und Demütigung. Sein Lebensschoß verschließt sich aus Lebensangst. – Auch narzisstische Menschen gehen auf der traumatischen Spur einer alten Vergewaltigung. Früh zerstörte rücksichtsloses Eindringen fremder Übermacht ihre Lebendigkeit: Bezugspersonen, die das Kind überwältigten, statt es zu fördern.
    Gleichzeitig mit der Nymphenmutter schlummert in Narziss auch sein Vater, der alte Flußgott. Dessen Befreiung, das heißt der Lösung des Triebflusses, gilt die Sehnsucht narzisstischer Menschen. Diese kann sich nicht erfüllen, ehe in Narziss keine neue Vereinigung zwischen dem Flußgott und der Nymphe, keine innere Zeugung in Liebe stattfindet. Peter Schellenbaum (*1939) Schweizer Psychoanalytiker, Sachbuchautor, Nimm deine Couch und geh! Heilung mit Spontanritualen, Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, 1. Oktober 1994

Vereitelte Sicht auf das "big picture"

  • Psychopathen und Bürokraten festigen und fördern gemeinsam die Zerstückelung unserer Sicht und Wahrnehmungen, weil ihre eigene persönliche Kohäsion die Gespaltenheit benötigt. […] Zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts sind wir vom Ende der Natur und damit der Welt selbst bedroht, weil sich eine Technik, die scheinbar volle Herrschaft über den Planeten Erde ermöglicht, in der Hand von Psychopathen und Bürokraten befindet. Arno Gruen (1923-2015) deutsch-schweizerischer Psychologe, Psychoanalytiker, Zivilisationskritiker, Schriftsteller, Verratene Liebe – Falsche Götter, ECON Verlag, 1991, Klett-Cotta, 2.

  • Nach allem, was ich über das Wesen der Liebe gesagt habe, ist die Hauptvoraussetzung für die Fähigkeit, lieben zu können, dass man seinen Narzissmus überwindet.
    Da die Fähigkeit zu lieben davon abhängt, dass unser Narzissmus relativ gering ist, verlangt diese Kunst die Entwicklung von Demut, Objektivität und Vernunft. Erich Fromm (1900-1980) deutsch-US-amerikanischer Sozialpsychologe, Psychoanalytiker, humanistischer Philosoph, Autor, Die Kunst des Liebens 1956, Frankfurt am Main, 60. Auflage 2003

 

 

  • Der sehr narzisstische Mensch hat eine unsichtbare Mauer um sich erstellt; er ist alles, die Welt ist nichts – oder vielmehr: Er ist die Welt.

  • Was für den Selbstsüchtigen gilt, gilt auch für den narzisstischen Menschen. Dessen allgegenwärtiges Interesse ist es weniger sich Dinge anzueignen als vielmehr sich selbst zu bewundern. Oberflächlich betrachtet scheinen diese Menschen in sich selbst verliebt zu sein; in Wirklichkeit können sie sich aber selbst nicht leiden und mit dem Narzissmus wie mit der Selbstsucht kompensieren sie einen grundlegenden Mangel an Selbstliebe.

Abwertungswut

  • Genau besehen, geht es also bei jeder Kränkung um den Versuch, der eigenen Selbstabwertung zu entkommen. [...] Im Zeitalter der narzisstischen Schäden ist bei uns allen, diese Bereitschaft, gekränkt zu reagieren und zu kränken, stärker, als wir wahrhaben wollen. [...] Am schlimmsten erscheint es den meisten, wenn sie [...] bei sich selbst die kontinuierliche 'Abwertungswut' entdecken.

Gespenst erschreckt eine junge Frau, 1890
Utagawa Yoshiiku (1833-1904) japanischer Künstler
  • Unsere narzisstische Schädigung kann als Ergebnis eines Mangels an bestätigenden Spiegeln in der Kindheit angesehen werden. Zwiegespräche sind "nachholende Sozialisation". Der Partner "validiert meine Selbstdarstellung". So verstehe ich, wer ich bin. Michael Lukas Moeller (1937-2002) deutscher Professor für Seelische Gesundheit (1973-1983), Psychoanalytiker, Paartherapeut, Autor, Die Wahrheit beginnt zu zweit.

  • [I]m "Zeitalter des Narzissmus" ist Narziss in aller Munde und Gedanken. Als "neuer Sozialisationstyp" geführt, ist er Gegenstand unzähliger Abhandlungen: Ob "Der narzisstische Persönlichkeitsstil" oder die "Narzisstische Kompetenz" des postmodernen Menschen verhandelt wird, ob "Narzisstische Persönlichkeitsstörungen" und "Narzisstische Krisen" im allgemeinen oder "Weiblicher Narzissmus" im besonderen erörtert werden – das "Spektrum des Narzissmus" gilt als derart breit, dass man sogar die Anstrengung unternommen hat, ein "Narzissmusinventar" zu erstellen.   Prof. Dr. phil. Almut-Barbara Renger, deutsche Professorin für Antike Religion und Kultur, Freie Universität Berlin, Mythos Narziss, Vorwort, S. 14, Reclam Leipzig, 1999

 

  • Traditionell wird unter Narzissmus Selbstliebe und Ich-Bezogenheit verstanden. […] Der Narzissmus thematisiert das Grundbedürfnis, von anderen Menschen gesehen, beachtet, anerkannt und geliebt zu werden. Der Narzissmus ist gerade nicht die einsame Selbstbespiegelung. Im Spiegel der Umwelt bildet sich das Selbst. Wir wissen, dass der primäre Narzissmus des Säuglings auf die Haltefunktion der Mutter und das Lächeln in ihrem Blick angewiesen ist. Wir erleben, dass das narzisstische Kind Aufmerksamkeit und Bewunderung sucht. Wir sehen, dass die Selbstinszenierung des Medienstars den Beifall des Publikums braucht. Und wir ahnen, dass auch die narzisstische Störung einen stillen oder lärmenden, aber immer verzweifelten Kampf um intersubjektive Anerkennung bedeutet. Martin Altmeyer (*1948) deutscher Psychologe, Publizist, Autor zur Modernisierung der Psychoanalyse, Narzißmus und Objekt. Ein intersubjektives Verständnis der Selbstbezogenheit, Klappentext, Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, Göttingen, 2000, 2. Auflage 2004

 

  • Narzissmus ist kein Nebenprodukt der Prominenz, sondern eine primär motivierende Kraft, die Menschen dazu anstachelt, berühmt die werden. Studienergebnis über Narzissmus unter Prominenten, Journal of Research in Personality, October 2006

 

  • Prominente Narzissten sind keine Egomanen mit hoher Selbstachtung. Vielmehr sind sie traumatisierte Individuen, die unfähig sind, auf bodenständige Weise Bindungen mit ihren Mitmenschen einzugehen. Sie sind getrieben, einen Status von Berühmtheit zu erlangen verbunden mit einem unaufhörlichem Zustrom von Aufmerksamkeit, Schmeichelei und Verstärkung, weil sie die ständige Berieselung mit bewundernder Anerkennung als Ersatz brauchen für verschiedene Arten von aufrichtiger Selbstliebe beziehungsweise Selbstachtung.

  • Wir Deutschen leiden mehrheitlich an einer narzisstischen Störung. Sehr knapp gesagt: Unsere Eltern haben uns zu wenig Bestätigung gegeben, das müssen wir als Erwachsene kompensieren. Interview mit Hans-Joachim Maaz, deutscher Psychotherapeut, Bestsellerautor, Der Spiegel, August 2009

  • Die Selbstliebe wird leider oft mit den falschen Begriffen wie Egoismus und Narzissmus assoziiert. Diese treffen aber eher auf die Eigenliebe zu, die nicht das Selbst zum Ziel der Liebe hat, sondern das Bild, das man von sich, zum Beispiel über Statussymbole, vermittelt. Selbstliebe entspricht eher dem idealen Entwurf einer zwischenmenschlichen Liebe, bei der man das Gegenüber mit all seinen Facetten, positiven wie negativen, in seiner Gesamtheit zu schätzen weiß. Wer diese Einstellung auch zu sich selbst findet, ist gegenüber Herabsetzungen und Demütigungen sicherlich um einiges resistenter und somit auch im Rankism-Gerangel stabiler. Interview mit Prof. Dieter Thomä, deutscher Professor für Philosophie, Autor von Vom Glück in der Moderne, Suhrkamp, 2003, Das tägliche Machtspiel, präsentiert von BRAND EINS, April 2005

Das Gehirn eines Psychopathen ist im "Raubtier-Modus".

Der kanadische Professor für Kriminalpsychologie Robert D. Hare, C.M., Ph.D. (*1934) entwickelte eine Checkliste zur Ermittlung von Psychopathie an der University of British Columbia.
1% Psychopathen – in der normalen Bevölkerung
4% Psychopathen – in den Führungsetagen von Firmen
25% Psychopathen – in den Gefängnissen

  • "Aus der Sicht eines Psychopathen sind wir es, die eine Fehlfunktion haben", sagt Hare. "Emotionen machen uns angreifbar." Wir setzen grundsätzlich ein gewisses Maß an Empathie voraus, ein Leben ohne Mitgefühl ist für uns schwer vorstellbar. Psychopathen dagegen macht es nichts aus, einem Kollegen oder Freund direkt in die Augen zu schauen, obwohl sie ihn hintergehen. Sie sind skrupellos, verfolgen ihre Ziele ohne Wenn und Aber. […]
    Psychopathen sind nicht verrückt. Ihr Verstand, sagt Hare, ist völlig in Ordnung. Sie sind mitunter sehr intelligent, sie wissen, was richtig und was falsch ist. Sie können sich auch rein rational in ihr Gegenüber hineinversetzen und dessen Perspektive übernehmen. Was ihnen fehlt, ist also nicht die sogenannte "Theory of Mind". Was ihnen fehlt, ist Empathie. Weil sie selbst Gefühle wie Liebe oder Angst vermindert wahrzunehmen scheinen, ist ihre Fähigkeit, Mitgefühl, Schuldbewusstsein oder Reue zu empfinden, eingeschränkt, erklärt Hare. Sie wirken zunächst charmant, sind tatsächlich jedoch seltsam kalt. Laut Robert Hare sind sie "perfekt angepasste Raubtiere". Geradezu instinktiv finden sie die Schwächen ihrer Mitmenschen und nutzen sie aus.
    ♦ Weil Psychopathen Emotionen wie Liebe und Angst vermindert empfinden, fehlt das Mitgefühl für andere. So können sie ihre Ziele skrupellos verfolgen.
    ♦ Ob ein Psychopath kriminell wird, hängt von psychosozialen Einflussfaktoren ab.
    ♦ Während in den Gefängnissen der Anteil der Psychopathen bei 25 Prozent zu liegen scheint, wird er in der normalen Bevölkerung immer noch auf etwa ein Prozent geschätzt.
    ♦ "Erfolgreiche Psychopathen" finden sich in allen Bereichen des Lebens. Besonders attraktiv sind für sie jedoch die Führungsetagen großer Unternehmen. Hier ist der Anteil der Psychopathen einer Studie zufolge viermal so hoch wie in der normalen Bevölkerung.

Erfolgreiche Psychopathen sind "Sozialstraftäter".

  • Die britische Wissenschaftlerin Belinda Board nennt sie die "erfolgreichen Psychopathen". Sie stehen nicht im Fokus, weil sie eben nicht kriminell werden, so der Tübinger Neurobiologe Niels Birbaumer. "Sie sind nicht gewalttätig, und deshalb kennen wir sie nicht. Der Schaden, den sie aber in unserer Gesellschaft anrichten, ist immens."
    Robert D. Hare, ein kanadischer Wissenschaftler, der das Instrumentarium entwickelt hat, mit dem Polizeidienste auf der ganzen Welt Psychopathen identifizieren, nennt sie "Sozialstraftäter". Er hat 30 Jahre in Hochsicherheitsgefängnissen Datenmaterial über Psychopathen gesammelt und ist heute der Meinung, dass er an den Börsen dieser Welt vermutlich mehr über seine Lieblingsstudienobjekte gelernt hätte. "Attraktive, intelligente gebildete Psychopathen, die in einer wohlhabenden Familie groß geworden sind, rauben keine Bank aus, sie werden Bankenvorstand."

⚠ Achtung Siehe Power vs. Truth (engl.) Januar 2013

  • Erst durch Erfahrung muss man feststellen, dass man in das eigene Denken und Selbst verliebt ist, und dass die spirituelle Arbeit im Wesentlichen darin besteht, die Anhaftung an Gedanken und liebgewordene Meinungen, Standpunkte und Erinnerungen loszulassen, deren Wert durch narzisstische Identifikation aufgeblasen und überbewertet wird. Das innerste Wesen des Egos ist Narzissmus. Dr. David R. Hawkins, OU Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 91, 2006

 


May Day
British illustrator Kate Greenaway (1846-1901)

 

  • Das kindische, narzisstische Ego […] entdeckt, dass Überleben und Erfolg von der Aufgabe [der] Infantilität und dem Erlernen von Kooperation abhängen. Im Gegenzug erhält das Ego nun Liebe und Anerkennung, indem es lernt, zu teilen und geduldig zu sein. […] Wenn diese Art [verantwortungsvoller] Elternschaft fehlt, bleibt der Infantilismus zusammen mit daraus erwachsenem Groll, Ärger und Selbstmitleid bestehen. Dr. David R. Hawkins, OU Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 322, 2006

 

  • Aus der Sicht der Bewusstseinsevolution ist Atheismus die Folge der Weigerung oder Unfähigkeit, die illusionäre Vorstellung aufzugeben, der narzisstische Kern des Egos sei souverän [herrschend] und die Quelle des eigenen Lebens und der Existenz. [...]
    Ein Grund, weshalb Computerspiele so beliebt sind, ist, weil sie die Täuschung verstärken, die "Kontrolle zu haben" und folglich auch der Herrscher und "Kapitän der eigenen Seele" zu sein. Dr. David R. Hawkins, FU Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 356, 2005

Personal confessionals

  • I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was not acceptable. I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior I engaged in. […]
    Character and decency count. […] I stopped living by the core values that I was taught to believe in. I knew my actions were wrong, but I convinced myself that normal rules didn't apply. I never thought about who I was hurting. Instead I thought only about myself. I ran straight through the boundaries that a married couple should live by. I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to. I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame. I didn't have to go far to find them. I was wrong, I was foolish. I don't get to play by different rules. The same boundaries that apply to everyone apply to me. I brought this shame on myself. […] I've had a lot of time to think about what I've done. My failures have made me look at myself in a way I never wanted to before.

Striving for somebodiness – position, status, money – vulnerability to corruption

  • He [Newt] was impressed easily by position, status, money. He grew up poor and always wanted to be somebody, to make a difference, to prove himself, you know. He has to be historic to justify his life. […]
    Newt always wanted to be somebody. That was his vulnerability, do you understand? Being treated important. Which means he was gonna associate with people who would stroke him, and were important themselves. And in that vulnerability, once you go down that path and it goes unchecked, you add to it. Like, 'Oh, I'm drinking, who cares?' Then you start being a little whore, 'cause that comes with drinking. That's what corruption is — when you're too exhausted, you're gonna go with your weakness. So when we see corruption, we shouldn't say, 'They're all corrupt.' Rather, we should say, 'At what point did you decide that? And why? Why were you vulnerable?' Marianne Gingrich on her marriage (1981-2000) with husband Newt_Gingrich|Newton Leroy "Newt" Gingrich (*1943) US American politician, historian, 58th Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives (1995-1999), political consultant, candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination, author, cited in: Newt Gingrich.

Recommendations

  • Don't attempt to do something about your striving ego. Don't fight it, subdue it, control it or destroy it. That would just make the ego real. You must remember that your ego is not real. Ego is a false belief that you have about yourself being separate from your higher self. Dr. Wayne Dyer (*1940) US American self-help advocate, spiritual lecturer, author, source unknown

Self-reflective survivors vs. exploiting narcissists

  • One of the most common character traits I have witnessed among survivors is their ability and desire to be self-reflective. As a generalization, most survivors are able to critically look at their own behaviors and motives. They are willing to fix character defects within themselves. These personal strengths are precisely what narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths exploit. A toxic person knows if they hurl accusations at a survivor, those words will pierce deep and cause the survivor to look inward to see if the accusations are true. Quite the clever diversion tactic. It is the toxic person who needs to do more self-reflection but that will never, ever, happen. Shannon Thomas, LCSW-S, US American therapist, Facebook comment, posted 10. January 2016

Risking confrontation with oneself

  • Whoever looks into the mirror of the water will see first of all his own face. Whoever goes to himself risks a confrontation with himself. The mirror does not flatter, it faithfully shows whatever looks into it; namely, the face we never show to the world because we cover it with the persona, the mask of the actor. But the mirror lies behind the mask and shows the true face. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 9 (Part 1).

Treble and bass clefs shown with names of the notes
  • There was never a genius without a tincture of madness. Aristotle(384-322 BC) classical Greek pre-Christian philosopher, physician, scientist, misogynist

 

  • Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. They believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism. Definition by Mayoclinic.com

 

  • But leaders have to do more than ask for the counsel of others. They have to hear it. All of us would do well to reflect on how receptive we are to the suggestions and opinions of others and alternate points of view. One motive for turning a deaf ear to what others have to say seems to be sheer hubris: leaders often believe they are wiser than all those around them. The literature on executive narcissism tells us that the self-confidence top executives need can easily blur into a blind spot, an unwillingness to turn to others for advice.

  • When in group narcissism the object is not the individual but the group to which he belongs. […] The assertion that "my country" (or nation, or religion) is the most wonderful, the most cultural, the most powerful, the most peace-loving, etc. does not sound crazy at all; on the contrary, it sounds like an expression of patriotism, faith and loyalty. Erich Fromm (1900-1980) German US Amercian social psychologist, psychoanalyst, humanistic philosopher, author, source unknown

 

  • The narcissistic orientation is one in which one experiences as real only that which exists within oneself, while the phenomena in the outside world have no reality in themselves, but are experienced only from the viewpoint of their being useful or dangerous to one. The opposite pole to narcissism is objectivity; it is the faculty to see people and things as they are, objectively, and to be able to separate this objective picture from a picture which is formed by one's desires and fears. Erich Fromm (1900-1980) German US Amercian social psychologist, psychoanalyst, humanistic philosopher, author, The Art of Loving, Harper & Row, 1956

  • Narcissism as a psychological definition is typically seen as self-involved attitudes and behavior where there is little or no empathy for others. Narcissistic wounding starts early in life to children whose parents are insecure, abusive, addictive or have narcissistic patterns themselves.
    Narcissistic injury happens to the child when his or her emotional needs are not met. The narcissistic parent has unresolved needs for attention and caretaking because his or her needs were not met in their early life. Neglect, physical, mental and sexual abuse, being spoiled and not given structure and limits create the wounding. Narcissism can be an inflated ego sub part or the trait can take over the personality. Narcissistic attitudes and behavior come from the ego defenses that function as smoke screens to hide the deep shame and fractures that came from being hurt emotionally or physically as a child.
    The child who was not allowed to have boundaries becomes energetically and developmentally arrested at this level with beliefs of not being safe in the world and being unworthy and unlovable. Thus the Shadow is born with the defenses and negative core beliefs becoming set in the child's repertoire. The child carries this primitive, self-defense core of fear even into adulthood. This is called the "Core Script" or Core Identity, which is like a big lens of perception by which the world is viewed. The defenses remain lurking in the unconscious mind ready to be called into action at any resemblance of threat. Lynne Namka, Ed.D., US American psychologist, Selfishness and Narcissism in Family Relationships, 2005

 

  • Underneath the so-called narcissistic personality is definitely shame and the paralyzing fear of being ordinary. Often it's hard for people to believe that someone in their life who is critical and rejecting of them is really suffering from their own shame. Both shame and grandiosity come from the same feeling that "if I'm not above the rest, I'm not enough." Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW brenebrown.com, US American shame, vulnerability, empathy researcher, lecturer, Graduate College of Social Work, University of Houston, Texas, lecturer, author, Author Brené Brown Discusses Embracing Our Ordinariness, presented by The Huffington Post, 21.

Individualism vs. collectivism

Narcissism vs. totalitarianism

  • [I]ndividualism is very good for the immune system because the individual is allowed to be praised. [T]he US is a very individualistic country as opposed to Japan, which is a very collectivist country.
    In Japan, you have to disown whatever action you took and give it to your group.
    When shaming occurs in the US, you feel ashamed because of something you did. In Japan or [other] Asian countries, you feel the shame for your group, not for yourself, and it’s even worse because you’re disowning the process. If you take individualism too far, then it becomes narcissistic. If you take collectivism too far, then it becomes totalitarian.

4 percent of guiltless people with anti-social personality disorder

  • Many mental health professionals refer to the condition of little or no conscience as "anti-social personality disorder," a non-correctable disfigurement of character that is now thought to be present in about 4 percent of the population – that is to say, one in twenty-five people. This condition of missing conscience is called by other names, too, most often "sociopathy," or the somewhat more familiar term psychopathy. Guiltlessness was in fact the first personality disorder to be recognized by psychiatry, and terms that have been used at times over the past century include manie sans délire, psychopathic inferiority, moral insanity, and moral imbecility.

Since 10,000 years sadistic draw-down entitled imperialist societies continually overpowered "good examples".

  • By their nature agricultural societies are imperialist, they're based on draw-down. Civilization follows that same pattern over and over, where
    ➤ they conquer the region,
    ➤ they gut the colonies,
    ➤ they extract what they want,
    ➤ they leave the place a desert.
    That's being going on for 10,000 years. What that means is: for 10,000 years these invading, sadistic cultures of draw-down and entitlement have come into contact with other cultures that, many of which were egalitarian, peaceful, sustainable cultures. This is the pattern for 10,000 years. In all of that time, the living example of a culture that is egalitarian and sustainable, has never once stopped the invaders. It has never once worked as a strategy. They've seen the good example. It does not change the invaders.
    History is literally the story of [those] invasions wiping out the nice people, […] [leaving] the sociopaths on top. We just need to really say this out loud. Personal example has never worked. We've gotta give this one up. There's too much at stake.

Grandiosity-Exhibitionism ⇔ Vulnerability-Sensitivity

  • While Grandiosity-Exhibitionism was associated with extraversion, aggressiveness, self-assuredness, and the need to be admired by others, Vulnerability-Sensitivity was associated with introversion, hypersensitivity, defensiveness, anxiety, and vulnerability.
    [A]s far back as 1938, Harvard psychologist Henry Murray noticed another breed of narcissist among his undergraduates: the covert narcissist. While the "overt" narcissists tended to be aggressive, self-aggrandizing, exploitative, and have extreme delusions of grandeur and a need for attention, "covert" narcissists were more prone to feelings of neglect or belittlement, hypersensitivity, anxiety, and delusions of persecution. In the 90s, psychologist Paul Wink analyzed a variety of narcissism scales and confirmed that there are indeed two distinct faces of narcissism, which they labeled "Grandiosity-Exhibitonism" and "Vulnerability-Sensitivity". He found that both shades of narcissism shared a common core of conceit, arrogance, and the tendency to give in to one's own needs and disregard others.

  • It is possible to obtain so-called esoteric results that are impure, but they are false and thus transitory. Here we refer to the vast realm of occultism, where the children of this century, more capable than the children of light, seek to apply their abilities beyond the visible world. This occurs in what we call 'mysticism of phenomena'.
    It is curious to see how much these false prophets, magicians and 'christs' impressed themselves on the imagination of the men and even more of the women of the past. It is the same today. For there is a type of human being who declines all moral responsibility for himself or for those to whom he is in duty bound. One comes across this type quite often, always trying to find someone else to shoulder his responsibilities as long as this someone else possesses some kind of authority, earned or otherwise. These people are open to any form of hypnotic suggestion and practically ask to be hypnotized. They are of good faith, but they search for the 'marvelous' because they are too weak or too lazy to undertake esoteric work successfully.
    And the 'wolves' devour them finding justification in the fact that they are only the 'scourings of humanity.' But this is not true; for 'scourings' who are converted can become key figures on the esoteric chess-board. Mental apathy and emotional inertia are responsible for tipping man down the slope of least resistance even when armed with the best intentions.

A psychopath's confession

  • I have no compassion for those whom I operate on. That is a luxury I simply cannot afford. In the theater I am reborn: as a cold, heartless machine, totally at one with scalpel, drill and saw. When you’re cutting loose and cheating death high above the snowline of the brain, feelings aren’t fit for purpose. Emotion is entropy, and seriously bad for business. I’ve hunted it down to extinction over the years.

A psychopath's NWO confession

  • For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as "internationalists" and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will.
    If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.   David Rockefeller (1915-2017) current US American patriarch of the Rockefeller family, autobiography Memoirs, chapter 27, S. 404-405, Random House, New York, Trade, 1st edition 15. October 2002, reprint 28. October 2003
  • Psychopaths are social predators who charm, manipulate, and ruthlessly plow their way through life, leaving a broad trail of broken hearts, shattered expectations, and empty wallets. Completely lacking in conscience and in feelings for others, they selfishly take what they want and do as they please. Robert D.

  • Too many people hold the idea that psychopaths are essentially killers or convicts. The general public hasn’t been educated to see beyond the social stereotypes to understand that psychopaths can be entrepreneurs, politicians, CEOs and other successful individuals who may never see the inside of a prison. […] Psychopaths have what it takes to defraud and bilk others: They are fast-talking, charming, self-assured, at ease in social situations, cool under pressure, unfazed by the possibility of being found out, and totally ruthless. The psychopath can actually put themselves inside your skin intellectually, not emotionally. They can tell what you’re thinking, in a sense, they can look at your body language, they listen to what you’re saying, but what they don’t really do is feel what you feel. What this allows them to do is to use the words to manipulate and con and interact with you, without the baggage of this ‘I really feel your pain’. Robert D.

Differentiating between sociopaths and psychopaths

  • Compared with other major clinical disorders, little systematic research has been devoted to psychopathology, even though it is responsible for far more social distress and disruption than all other psychriatrical disorders combined.

  • For most people, the confusion and uncertainty surrounding this subject begin with the word psychopathy itself. Literally it means "mental illness" (from psyche, "mind"; and pathos, "disease"), and this is the meaning of the term still found in some dictionaries. The confusion is compounded by the media use of the term as the equivalent of "insane" or "crazy". […]
    Most clinicians and researchers don’t use the term in this way; they know that psychopathy cannot be understood in terms of traditional views of mental illness. Psychopaths are not disoriented or out of touch with reality, nor do they experience the delusions, hallucinations, or intense subjective distress that characterize most other mental disorders. Unlike psychotic individuals, psychopaths are rational and aware of what they are doing and why. Their behavior is the result of choice, freely exercised. […]
    Many researchers, clinicians, and writers use the terms psychopath and sociopath interchangeably […] Sometimes the term sociopathy is used because it is less likely than is psychopathy to be confused with psychoticism or insanity. […]
    In many cases the choice of term reflects the user’s views on the origins and determinants of the clinical syndrome or disorder […]. Thus, some clinicians and researchers – as well as most sociologists and criminologists – who believe that the syndrome is forged entirely by social forces and early experiences prefer the term sociopath, whereas those – including this writer – who feel that psychological, biological, and genetic factors also contribute to development of the syndrome generally use the term psychopath. The same individual therefore could be diagnosed as a sociopath by one expert and as a psychopath by another. Robert D. Hare, C.M., Ph.D. hare.org (*1934) Canadian professor of experimental psychology, researcher in psychopathology, psychophysiology, criminal psychology, developer of Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R), University of British Columbia, Paul Babiak, Ph.D., US American industrial psychologist, Without Conscience.

Effect that the psychopath has on the normal human mind

  • When the human mind comes into contact with this new reality so different from any experiences encountered by a person raised in a society dominated by normal people, it releases psychophysiological shock symptoms in the human brain with a higher tonus of cortex inhibition and a stifling of feelings, which then sometimes gush forth uncontrollably. Human minds work more slowly and less keenly because the associative mechanisms have become inefficient. Especially when a person has direct contact with psychopathic representatives of the new rule, who use their specific experience so as to traumatize the minds of the "others" with their own personalities, his mind succumbs to a state of short-term catatonia. Their humiliating and arrogant techniques, brutal paramoralizations, and so forth deaden his thought processes and his self-defense capabilities, and their divergent experiential method anchors in his mind. In the presence of this kind of phenomenon, any moralizing evaluation of a person’s behavior in such a situation thus becomes inaccurate at best.

Differentiating between sociopaths, psychopaths and antisocial personalities

  • Many people are confused about the differences among psychopathy, sociopathy, and antisocial personality disorder. Although the terms frequently are treated as if they are interchangeable – by the general public and professionals alike – they refer to related but not identical conditions.
    Psychopathy is a personality disorder […] Psychopaths are without conscience and incapable of empathy, guilt, or loyalty to anyone but themselves.
    Sociopathy is not a formal psychiatric condition. It refers to patterns of attitudes and behaviors that are considered antisocial and criminal by society at large, but are seen as normal or necessary by the subculture or social environment in which they developed. Sociopaths may have a well-developed conscience and a normal capacity for empathy, guilt and loyalty, but their sense of right and wrong is based on the norms and expectations of their subculture or group. Many criminals might be described as sociopaths.
    Antisocial personality disorder (APD) is a broad diagnostic category found in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition (DSM-IV). Antisocial and criminal behaviors play a major role in its definition and, in this sense, APD is similar to sociopathy. Some of those with APD are psychopaths, but many are not. The difference between psychopathy and antisocial personality disorder is that the former includes personality traits such as lack of empathy, grandiosity, and shallow emotion that are not necessary for a diagnosis of APD. APD is three or four times more common than psychopathy in the general population and in prisons. The prevalence of those we would describe as sociopathic is unknown but likely considerably higher than that of APD. Robert D.

  • Several abilities – skills, actually – make it difficult to see psychopaths for who they are.
    ➤ First, they are motivated to, and have a talent for, 'reading people' and for sizing them up quickly. They identify a person’s likes and dislikes, motives, needs, weak spots, and vulnerabilities […].
    ➤ Second, many psychopaths come across as having excellent oral communication skills. In many cases, these skills are more apparent than real because of their readiness to jump right into a conversation without the social inhibitions that hamper most people […].
    ➤ Third, they are masters of impression management; their insight into the psyche of others combined with a superficial – but convincing – verbal fluency allows them to change their situation skillfully as it suits the situation and their game plan.

  • Violence is not uncommon among offender populations, but psychopaths still manage to stand out. They commit more than twice as many violent and aggressive acts, both in and out of prison, as do other criminals. The recidivism rate of psychopaths is about double that of other offenders. The violent recidivism rate of psychopaths is about triple that of other offenders. Robert D.

Delta brain waves – normally produced in deep sleep – are consciously operative at trauma healing, meditation, within sages and psychopaths.

  • There are four different kinds of brain waves ranging from beta waves during periods of high alertness, through alpha and theta waves, to delta waves, which accompany deep sleep. These waves reflect the fluctuating levels of electrical activity in the brain at various times. In normal members of the population, theta waves are associated with drowsy, meditative, or sleeping states. Yet in psychopaths they occur during normal waking states – even sometimes during states of increased arousal […]
    Language, for psychopaths, is only word deep. There’s no emotional contouring behind it. A psychopath may say something like 'I love you,' but in reality, it means about as much to him as if he said 'I'll have a cup of coffee.' […] This is one of the reasons why psychopaths remain so cool, calm, and collected under conditions of extreme danger, and why they are so reward-driven and take risks. Their brains, quite literally, are less 'switched on' than the rest of ours. Robert D.

  • These individuals [psychopaths] can’t be "healed", comprise at least 6% of humanity and are often to be found in positions of power. This is hard for most people to accept and understandably so considering all the cultural, religious and spiritual/new age programming and corruption that posits "we are all one" meme. This also has nothing to do with "us vs. them" in  the way some people like to argue. […]
    [N]ormal people can become ponerized, meaning they take on psychopathological traits through upbringing and conditioning, trying to adapt to a pathological society that has lost the capacity to perceive pathological individuals as such. It means that the person or group can no longer make the distinction between healthy and pathological thought processes and logic. One is no longer able to draw a line between correct thinking and deviate thinking. Genetic psychopaths make up about 6% of humanity while ponerization has a much higher number.
    A lot of psychopathological traits have become normalized in human societies. Billions of people have been fed psychopathic belief systems and world views as the "way of life" through media, government, religion, entertainment and education. Our culture puts a lot of emphasis on image, status and appearance. Psychopaths have actually personality traits that many common people aspire to. The untroubled self-confidence of the psychopath is very alluring and is generally what "normal" people seek to acquire. […]
    The virus of psychopathy will infect any new system, community or change in power until it is brought to awareness and looked at for what it is. Then the solutions will present themselves based on the knowledge and understanding we have gained. […]
    [I]f the topic of psychopathy is not fully understood and applied in "screenings" [law enforcement personnell] we have psychopaths and authoritarian followers with guns in their hands, authorized to shoot and arrest people at will, and with increasing impunity.

Psychopathic CEOs and politicians corrupting society

  • Psychopaths who have come from higher socio-economic levels often are more socially adept and become white-collar embezzlers or unethical CEOs of large corporations and get involved with stock fraud. Some learn how to set up shell corporations, Ponzi schemes, and pseudocharities, or they become manipulators of the stock or commodities markets. Some become adept at politics and enter government where they become corrupt officials. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 191, 2005

Social Narcissism [LoC 180]:

Caveat D. Hawkins was a dissociated "avatar"/cult leader. This paragraph reflects his right-wing fervor and his own cognitive dissonance.

  • Social narcissism as a new, purportedly "progressive," standard of acceptable behavior results in social distortion, with major negative consequences to oneself and society: Inflated egotism results in "sensitivity" by which personal responsibility is projected in paranoid style to cultural discourse. The perceived "offender" is depicted as a perpetrator from whom apology is now extorted by the demand of indignant self-righteousness and declaration of victimhood. To further add to the social distortion, the hypothetical perpetrator is brainwashed into guilty self-recrimination for being the cause and thus ignominiously wallows in guilty obeisance. Thus, the supposed perpetrator is now actually the victim of moral blackmail as well as extortion. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 228, 2005

Societal meme of slanderous propaganda

  • In a society where anyone can frivolously be declared a guilty perpetrator on a whim, nobody is safe and everyone is at risk without protection by logic, reason, and balance of the traditional rule of law. Thus victimology becomes operationally a social racket with extorted benefits plus artificially sanctioned, inflated egotism of "pseudo-importance."
    Unlike an iron filing that has no say as to where it will be pulled within a magnetic field, the human spirit is gifted with the option of choice, and by its own hand (spiritual will) determines its fate. By comprehending the nature of the evolution of consciousness itself, forgiveness and compassion arise at the witnessing of human suffering and anguish that are the consequences of ignorance and naivete. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 229, 2005

 

  • The public in general tends to be naive about mental disorders, even when blatently displayed. People commonly believe that other people are basically just like they are. Nothing could be farther from the truth. There are many people who are the diametric opposite of normalcy and all that is perceived to go with the idealized state. The world is full of people who hate love, integrity, peace, and truth; in fact, it infuriates them. (M. Scott Peck [LoC 475] (1936-2005) US American psychiatrist, psychotherapist, People of the Lie. The Hope for Healing Human Evil [LoC 450] Touchstone Press, 1st edition 1983, 2nd edition December 1997) Dr. David R. Hawkins, Truth vs. Falsehood.

Malignant narcissism, the ultimate severe psychopathology

  • Malignant messianic narcissism […] is a combination of composite pathologies of an extremely low level of consciousness (cal. 30), plus the deficits of reason; an absence of conscience, the inability to identify with or value other human life; the disdain for human, moral, disdain for ethical values; disdain for women; greed for power; infatuation and aggrandizement of the self, and ego inflation to messianic grandiosity.

Animated quote by David R. Hawkins

Malignant Messianic Narcissism, YouTube film, 4:20 minutes duration, posted 18. March 2011

The disorder […] occurs in two distinct forms:
  1. early onset (childhood bully type), and
  2. adult life onset after some years of normalcy subsequent to the gaining of power (i.e., "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.") […] (Nero, Caesar, Hussein, Khomeini, Napoleon, Hitler, Ivan the Terrible, etc.)
It also afflicts top, highly paid executives who "lose their sense of reality" and feel "entitled" to help themselves to the company's cash and assets. (Executive privilege. Where do they get the nerve? They have money, power, prestige. Yet some top executives have felt authorized to cross the line and use company funds for personal extravagances, Chicago Tribune, Susan Chandler, 5. September 2004) Dr. David R.

  • As a consequence to the relinquishment of the narcissistic ego, there is a reduction of distortions of perception that are the result of self-seeking positionalities. It is easier to accept the imperfections of humanness, which, at the level of Pride, would have been handled with anger, denial, guilt, or projected externally. With a benign conscience, mistakes and errors can be acknowledged and corrected without defensiveness or loss of self-esteem. There is a concomitant increase in the capacity for humor and the ability to laugh at oneself and human foibles (i.e., "To err is human, to forgive divine".). Dr. David R.

Thriving on scandals

 

 


Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies, 1899, Metropolitan
Museum of Art, Claude Monet (1840-1926) French painter
  • A study of Western civilization indicates that its current overall level of consciousness is currently in decline for the reasons that have been succinctly stated by Pope Benedict (relativism plus Islamic aggression and 'cultural Jihad'; see Burton and Stewart, 2007). The decline is the result of social and intellectual influences via the media, academia and politicalization from lower consciousness levels which have been heavily financed from sources that calibrate below the critical consciousness level of 200 ('power brokers'). The net result is the progressive dominance of narcissism, which is aggrandized as 'progressive', 'free speech', or human 'rights' and appeals to egocentricity. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 162, 2008

 

 


 


 

 

NOTE: Hawkins was driven to achieve false titles and cheat his readers with fabricated endorsements of celebrities.

  • People will do anything to get a moment of fame [glamor]. It just amazes me the extent that people will go 'to be somebody'. The narcissistic core of 'being somebody' is overwhelming at times. It is amazing what people will do to get a moment of the world's attention. I guess that would be the ego's dream that the whole world gets to know you're a somebody. I find it that life is better the other way, being a nobody, being anonymous.2 / 3 Audio interview Differentiating truth from falsehood – November 18th 2010, podcast, episode 331, presented by US American web radio station Theatre of the Mind, host Kelly Howell, aired 18.

The core of the ego believes to be God.

  • The ego, the core of the ego, the narcissistic core of the ego believes that it is God. You can see that in politics all of the time. [Laughter.] […] [W]hat you're asking is not such a minor thing; therefore, the ego puts up quite a resistance. It provides arguments and all kinds of things. Alright, so ... don't go with the ego. Don't listen to reason because that's its playground. It plays with your head. Don't let it play with your head. Say "I don't want to go there." It's a matter of witnessing. Dr. David R.

Correcting grandiosity

  • So, with sort of a deep humility, you begin to witness that everything is happening spontaneously on its own because there is potentiality.

Quotes by Drew Pinsky


Bridge in the Japanese Garden, Tully, County Kildare

Personal avowals

  • I can't help but conclude that there are many more individuals suffering from unhealthy levels of narcissism than there are patients diagnosed with narcissism as a psychological disorder. Another reason NPD can be difficult to diagnose is that narcissism, even at NPD levels, doesn't stop people from attaining positions of power, wealth, or prestige. Narcissists often develop attractive or persuasive social skills to help them maintain the persona they have constructed to get what they want from the world. […] Finally, diagnosis can be challenging simply because it's extraordinarily difficult to convince a narcissist that he needs psychological help. Any challenge to a narcissist's unrealistic self-image is likely to provoke rage, disdain, denial or other protective behaviors, as the individual struggles to protect the pseudo-self at all costs. Drew Pinsky, M.D. (*1958) US American internist, addiction medicine specialist, assistant clinical professor, Keck USC School of Medicine, radio and television personality, author, Dr. S. Mark Young, US American professor of entertainment, The Mirror Effect. How Celebrity Narcissism Is Seducing America, S. 100, Harper, 1st edition 17. March 2009

Appearance: being somebody:

The Somebody : Nobody mystique is fueling rankism.

  • Men go into positions of power to BE SOMEBODY [appear as a somebody].
    Women in power often go into power [postions] to DO SOMETHING different.
    Men that need to be be somebody often have narcisisstic liabilities. They lead a very empty life. They need to be buttressed by these external features around them.

June 2011

 

  • A narcissist is
    dissociated from his or her true self;
    ➤ he feels haunted by chronic feelings of loneliness, emptiness and self-loathing
    ➤ and seeks to replace that disconnection with a sense of worth and importance fueled by others.

  • Studies have shown a decline in religious affiliation and beliefs, especially among America's youth, who have become increasingly disenchanted with church doctrine and the perceived hypocrisy of high-ranking church officials. […] According to research by John Maltby and his colleagues, as the level of religious devotion decreases, the degree of celebrity worship increases.

  • It is childhood trauma that makes individuals most vulnerable to unhealthy levels of narcissistic traits, and that allows narcissistic behavior to take hold and flourish. The incidence of childhood trauma has increased by more than 40 percent over the past twenty years, and as a result, we are all feeling the effects of a generation with deep narcissistic wounds.

  • Celebrity narcissists aren't egomaniacs with high self-esteem. Rather, they are traumatized individuals who are unable to connect in any real way with other people. They are driven to attain fame, with its constant stream of attention, flattery, and empowerment, because they need the steady trickle of adoring recognition to take the place of any kind of real self-love or self-respect.

  • The mirror of celebrity reinforces every narcissist’s belief that a world of constant admiring attention is possible: All you need to do is
    • act sexy,
    • play the diva,
    • demand privileges and
    • party with abandon.

⚑ Narcissists apply the approach-avoidance repetition complex.

Inability to apologize

⚑ All narcissists should be held accountable [to the effects] of the vast and overwhelming majority of their actions.
⚑ Narcissists are incorrigeably and notoriously difficult to change. Thus, trying to modify them, to heal them, to cure them with love is doomed to failure. Either accept them as they are or avoid them altogether.

Paradox of ambient abuse

  • In ambient abuse the roles are reversed. The victim is considered by everyone to be mentally deranged and unstable. And the abuser is universally acclaimed as the suffering soul and victim.
[Paraphrased.] Five strategies of ambient abuse:
  1. Inducing disorientation in the victim
  2. Incapacitating the victim
  3. Shared psychosis
  4. Abuse/misuse of [intimate] information
  5. Third parties are manipulated as proxies to control the ultimate prey.

Wetiko – symptons of the Me-disease – Paul Levy

Wetiko is a term used by the Native tribes Ojibwa, Eastern Cree, Westmain Swampy Cree, and Innu/Naskapi/Montagnais. Native-American scholar Jack D. Forbes, Ph.D. (1934-2011) introduced the concept of the wétiko disease as the sickness of cannibalism, a mental illness. It turned into a socio-cultural epidemic of which colonizer and enslaver Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) was a major carrier. The settlers who first came to America expressed cannibalism as slavers who forced blacks or Native Americans to lose their lives in the slave-trade or who drained away their lives in a slave system.
Note: Columbus is a key figure as the slaver who initiated the transatlantic slave trade by taking Native Americans to Southern Europe.

 

This disease, this wetiko (cannibal) psychosis, is the greatest epidemic sickness known to man. pg. xvi
Cannibalism is the consuming of another’s life for one’s own private purpose or profit. pg. 24
The overriding characteristic of the wetiko is that he consumes other human beings, that is, he is a predator and a cannibal. This is the central essence of the disease. pg. 49

They [the Arawak men and women of the Bahama Islands] [...] brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they exchanged for the glass beads and hawks' bells. They willingly traded everything they owned [...]. They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features. [...] They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane [...]. They would make fine servants. [...] With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want. […]

Imperialism is a disease. I call it a form of cannibalism, a wetiko psychosis. It brutalizes people. […]
No one claims that Marco Polo discovered China. They don't celebrate Marco Polo Day in China or Europe or Hongkong. One of the reasons for that is because the Chinese are still in possession of their own country and the Europeans didn't get a good foothold there. […] Columbus Day is part of the ritual of colonialism, it’s part of the ritual of imperialism. […] They wanted to call the United States Columbia at one time. That's where the District of Columbia [D.C.] comes from. The whole idea of calling a country Columbia [see Latin America] is a gesture to the conquest. It's a recognition and applauding the conquest – or the genocide.

Wendigo psychosis is a culture-bound disorder.
It involves an intense craving for human flesh and the fear of turning into a cannibal.

 

  • Wetiko refers to a diabolically wicked person or spirit who terrorizes others.
    Wetiko/malignant egophrenia is nonlocal, in that it is an inner disease of the spirit, soul and psyche that explicates itself through the canvas of the outside world.
    Wetiko/malignant egophrenia is a ‘psychosis’ in the true sense of the word as being a 'sickness of the soul or spirit.'
    Wetiko/malignant egophrenia is a disease of civilization, or lack thereof.
    The wetiko virus is the root cause of the inhumanity in human nature, or shall we say, our seemingly inhuman nature.
    Many of us can't fathom the level of evil to which full-blown wetikos have fallen prey, and of which they are capable.

  • The wetiko germ is a psychic tapeworm, a parasite of the mind. Just like certain computer viruses or malware infect and program a computer to self-destruct, mind-viruses like wetiko can program the human bio-computer to think, believe and behave in ways that result in our self-destruction. Wetiko is a virulent, psychic pathogen that insinuates thought-forms into our mind which, when unconsciously en-acted, feed it, and ultimately kills its host (us). It doesn’t want to kill us too quickly however, for to successfully implement its agenda of reproducing and propagating itself throughout the field, it must let the host live long enough to spread the virus. If the host dies too soon, the bug would be prematurely evicted and would suffer the inconvenience of having to find a new residence.
    Like a cancer of the mind that metastasizes, in wetiko disease, a pathological part of the psyche co-opts and subsumes all of the healthy parts of the psyche into itself so as to serve its pathology. […]  In a psychic coup d’etat, the wetiko bug can usurp and displace the person, who becomes its puppet and marionette. Like a parasite, the wetiko virus can take over the will of an animal more evolved than itself, enlisting that creature into serving its nefarious agenda. Once the parasite becomes sufficiently entrenched within the psyche, the prime directive coordinating a person’s behavior comes from the disease, as it is now the one calling the shots. Just as someone infected with the rabies virus will resist drinking water, which would flush out the infection, someone taken over by the wetiko parasite will have nothing to do with anything that will help them get rid of the disease. Wetikos are phobic towards the light of truth, which they avoid like the plague. In advanced stages, this process takes over the person so completely that we could rightfully say the person is no longer there; they are just an empty shell carrying the disease. In a sense there is just the disease, operating through what appears to be a human being. The person becomes fully identified with their mask, their persona, but it is as if there is no one behind the mask.

  • [Spiritual people] are focused just on the light, but they're avoiding the darkness. They don't want to even give it any energy, they don't want to look at it. And by avoiding evil you're unwittingly feeding it. But if you get fascinated by it too much you're also unwittingly feeding it. And I point out there is a third way. There is this middle way. You actually are able to see wetico and how it operates and how it's nonlocal. It operates inside all of us, it operates in the unconscious. Instead of not looking at it you see it and then – as a sovereign being – we have a choice of where we want to invest our attention. And then we can invest our attention in creating a world we want to live in. That doesn't feed wetiko, that dispells it. And that goes back to the creativy question.

  • We're projecting our shadow, our own darkness [...] and just remember this is a dream, if I project out my own darkness [...] well then what's going to happen is the dream is then going to offer me somebody who is going to embody the very shadow that I am projecting. So now I have evidence that the shadow really is out there, so I become even more entrenched in that viewpoint, of like the shadow, the evil, is not in me. There look, that person's playing it out, I have all the proof I need so then that's the vicious cycle where I actually dream up this world to actually enact an inner process, because the whole process is a reflection of my being dissociated from my own darkness.
    And of course, what do I do when I see somebody who is embodying my shadow, I try to destroy them, which is the very reflection of what I was doing to my own inner darkness in the beginning is to try get rid of it and by then trying to destroy the person who is embodying the evil, I become possessed by the very evil that I am trying to destroy. And so I've unwittingly, actually, I'm investing more evil into my attempt to try to eradicate evil and that whole process, behind the scenes, the wetiko bug, is gorging off of the polarization.

  • The wetiko epidemic is self-evident for all who have eyes to see. To not look at what's happening, to turn away and ignore it, is to be lying to ourselves and to be colluding with and unknowingly feeding the disease. Paul Levy (*1956) US American psycho-activating healer, artist, author, Dispelling Wetiko. Breaking the Curse of Evil, S. ?, North Atlantic Books, 15. January 2013

 

  • One way wetiko works is to keep us in our heads, stuck in our intellects and conceptual minds, resulting in the world transforming from a living experience into something purely conceptual and abstract. This is a place many people go to avoid and escape the pain of incarnation, of being fully embodied. And yet, wetiko can work just as well in the opposite way – inspiring people to get out of their heads, to connect with their sensuality, sexuality, bodies, feelings, emotions, and so forth, which are all wonderful things with which to connect. However, in certain circumstances, these experiences can be indulged in such that they amount to little more than stimulating chemicals in the body which results in a "feel-good experience," but has little to do with integration, healing, or expansion of consciousness, and can wind up feeding their attachments, which become addictions. […] True healing comes when we connect our heads and hearts in a truly embodied way. Paul Levy (*1956) US American psycho-activating healer, artist, author, Dispelling Wetiko.

Group of flying agarics
  • We are currently in the midst of the greatest epidemic sickness known to humanity. Like a fish in water who doesn't recognize water because it is everywhere, both outside and within the fish itself, many of us don't realize the collective insanity in our midst, as our madness is so pervasive that it has become normalized.
    People taken over by the wetiko virus usually don't suspect a thing about how they have been "conned," or more accurately, how they have conned themselves. The wetiko culture offers no incentive for them to self-reflectingly speculate upon their increasingly depraved condition; on the contrary, the nonlocal field configures itself to enable, further cultivate, and deepen their psychosis. When someone is a full-blown, unrecognized wetiko, the field around them torques so as to protect, collude with, and feed into their psychosis in a way that entrances those around them. Similar to how an octopus squirts ink in order to hide, a psychic field gets conjured up around full-blown wetikos which obfuscates their malfeasance.
    Once under the wetiko spell, people lose the capacity to recognize the wetiko pathology in others. In a situation of "group narcissism," wetikos at different stages of the disease assume particular postures and roles relative to each other that protect and shield themselves from their own insanity and darkness. They feed and reinforce each other's narcissism because it enhances their own.
    Anyone who doesn't buy into the arbitrarily established story is marginalized and demonized, and called either crazy, a conspiracy theorist, or even a terrorist. Such a group consensus about the nature of reality gets increasingly hard to sustain as time passes, however, as, like a house of cards ready to collapse at any moment, its vision of the world is based on the fundamental error of not being true. Strangely enough, people under the collective enchantment of wetiko become fanatically attached to supporting an agenda that oftentimes is diametrically opposed to serving their own best interests.This is an outer behavioral reflection of the inner state of being under the sway of the self-destructive wetiko parasite.
    All of the mainstream, culturally sanctioned, corporatized institutions are in the business of indoctrination, telling us what to think and not think, as well as how to think. Our mind is continually being massaged into shape by the prevailing culture, our true face lifted as our spiritual pockets are picked. Our civilization has become the mouthpiece for the propaganda organ of the disease, entrancing us to "buy" into its viewpoint as we are bled to death of what really counts. The culture that informs and forms around wetiko illness is itself a channel of its transmission and growth. If we sign on the dotted line and subscribe to its viewpoint, its life-denying culture will gradually subsume us into itself, enlisting us as its agents who unwitingly do its bidding. This is how the ever-expanding, self-generating psychic empire of collective psychosis works, as it increasingly takes over and approaches "full-employment."
    We are truly in a war. It is not the war we imagine we are in, which is the way our true adversaries want it. It is ultimately and actually not a foreign war against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on our own minds. Paul Levy (*1956) US American psycho-activating healer, artist, author, Dispelling Wetiko.

  • Wetiko disables our ability for discernment. Being a spiritual warrior, however, requires, embraces, and includes the most extreme discernment, which is the capacity to differentiate and tell one thing from another, and is related to our ability for naming things. Etymologically speaking, the word "discern" means "to distinguish between, to detect or discover that which is hidden or obscure." Discernment is radically different from when we are unconsciously caught in judgment, which is a reaction to and contraction against something. Discernment is the ability to make distinctions and see clearly, which is an expression of an expanded and evolved consciousness. It requires an ability to see through and beyond the outer plane of appearances and penetrate to the deeper, essential dynamics at play beneath the surface. As our consciousness develops, so does our facility of discernment. The faculty of discrimination and discernment is the sine qua non of all consciousness. Wielding the wisdom of discernment is an essential function of an awakening consciousness and is an expression of genuine compassion. The primary factor determining whether a daemonic energy like wetiko will move in mainly destructive or constructive and creative directions is whether or not our capability for discernment in-forms our actions in the world.

Times are a'changin'.

  • This is a historic time, a time when the gods in the unconscious are transforming. We are living in a time that the Greeks called the "Kairos" – the right moment – for a "metamorphosis of the gods," that is, a transformation in and of the collective unconscious itself. The peculiarity of our time, which is certainly not of our conscious choosing, is that the timeless unconscious within us is transforming itself in unprecedented, dramatic ways. […]
    As a species we are experiencing an undeniable uprising of the dark, destructive forces of the collective unconscious. As thinking, reflective, conscious human beings, we can no longer deny the dark stirrings of the unconscious as it plays itself out ever more conspicuously on the world stage. These overwhelming psychic forces are active powers that cannot be fitted into our rational world order, explained away by our reason, nor argued out of existence. If we are not in denial, it is obvious that the powers of the underworld, as if they have a severe "control process," are attempting to centralize power and global control over our entire species in a way that is devoid of any pretense of democratic legitimacy, compassion, or redeeming charm whatsoever.
    We are being confronted with the naked darkness of the soul, and asked, make that demanded, to come to terms with and face up to this darkness. The dark side of our nature, or we could even say the shadow of God, is revealing Itself and incarnating through the unconscious of humanity. In these apocalyptic times we live in, the dark God, the "deus absconditus" – which is an essential element of the psychological self – is incarnating. This hidden God is paradoxically present in its apparent absence. Something is being revealed to us in the process. The times in which we are living are truly initiatory.

Psychopathological rating (via PPI/PCL-R) of US American presidents

Questionnaire Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI)
Assessment to evaluate three psychological domains of psychopathy
I.Fearless dominance36Fearlessness, social influence, stress immunity
II.Impulsive antisociality/selfishness37'Machiavellian' egocentricity, rebellious nonconformity,
blame externalization, carefree lack of planning
III.ColdheartednessLack of empathy and remorse
Developers: ► US American psychologists Scott O. Lilienfeld (Emory University) and Brian Andrews

 

In 2010 a group of psychologists handed out the Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI) questionnaire to the respective biographers of all former U.S. presidents asking them to fill out the form on behalf of their subjects. Below league table shows the results of presidential psychopathology.
The numbers in the right hand column refer to the average ranking position of each president across the two main dimensions of the PPI: fearless dominance (I) and impulsive antisociality/selfishness (II).

Out of 42 John F. Kennedy ranked second highest on "Fearless Dominance" and sixth highest on "Impulsive Antisociality" dimension.
Bill Clinton scored top on "Impulsive Antisociality" and seventh highest on "Fearless Dominance".

 

  • You might well think there’d be safeguards against psychopaths rising to power in a constitutional democracy such as ours, but you’d be mistaken. Lilienfeld and his coauthors report on a personality analysis of the first 42 presidents, which found that success in the White House was strongly correlated with the traits of the successful psychopath. These traits can also be found among current contenders for the presidency [Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump], especially those high in the polls. […]
    The research on successful psychopathy is scant. In part this is because many in the field consider the concept an oxymoron. How can you be successful and pathological at the same time? Research instead has focused on the unsuccessful psychopath, in particular those convicted of heinous crimes. To a certain degree, this is due to a legitimate desire to better understand criminality and its causes. They’re also easy to find, since there are plenty to be studied in any given prison.

Thirteen rules for dealing with sociopaths in everyday life – Martha Stout


Precautionary steps to cope with antisocial people in the neighborhood
༺༻Precaution to stay clear from antisocial personalities
1.Accept that some people literally have no conscience.
2.Go with your instinct.Intuition ⇔ implied impact of the person's role as educator,
doctor, leader, animal lover, humanist, parent
3.Make the Rule of Threes your personal policy.When considering a new relationship of any kind
4.Question authority.
5.Suspect flattery.
6.If necessary, redefine your concept of respect.
7.Do not join the game.
8.Avoid the sociopath, to refuse any kind of contact or communication.Best way to protect yourself from a sociopath
9.Question your tendency to pity too easily.
10.Do not try to redeem the unredeemable.
11.Never agree, out of pity or for any other reason, to help a sociopath conceal his or her true character.
12.Defend your psyche.
13.Living well is the best revenge.

 

At present, sociopathy is "incurable"; furthermore, sociopathaths almost never wish to be "cured". In fact,
it is likely that, building on the neurobiological configuration of sociopathy, certain cultures, notably our Western one, actively encourage antisocial behaviors, including violence, murder and warmongering.
These facts are difficult for most people to accept. They are offensive, nonegalitarian, and frightening.

Misconceptions about psychopathy – Dean A. Haycock


Misconceptions about psychopaths

༺༻MisconceptionLegend
1.Psychopaths are insane.The American Psychiatric Association (APA) considers psychopathy (identical with sociopathy and antisocial personality disorder) to be a personality disorder. Some people regard it as a personality type. Both agree that psychopaths know the difference between right and wrong. Legally, psychopaths are not insane. They do not hear voices or experience other hallucinations. Their thoughts are not disordered or skewed by delusions. In other words, they are not psychotic, a feature of mental illness.
2.All mass murderers are psychopaths.Most mentally ill people are not violent. Psychiatrists and forensic psychologists determined that massmurderers are not psychopathic, but suffering from psychosis. They have a history of psychiatric illness. Exception: Columbine shooter Eric Harris.
3.All psychopaths are violent.Psychopathy is a risk factor, yet leaves plenty of room for nonviolent lifestyles. Psychopaths combine reckless risk-taking with lack of empathy and guilt, and an inability to form deep emotional bonds with other human beings.
4.Prisons are full of psychopaths.Although the APA still equates psychopathy with antisocial personality disorder, the majority of psychopathy experts do not. Prisons are not full of psychopaths, but 75% of the prisoners have antisocial personality disorder (based on antisocial acts and behaviors). Psychologists estimate ~20-25% of prisoners are psychopaths.
5.Boardrooms and Wall Street are teeming with psychopaths.4% (four times the number found in the general population) of the people active in the financial district of New York and the offices of corporate America are psychopaths. A preliminary study by Paul Babiak, Ph.D., US American industrial psychologist and his co-authors found that 8 of 203 corporate professionals taking part in management development programs scored high enough to be classified as psychopaths. Psychologists who study corporate psychopaths do not downplay the damage a relatively small number of psychopaths can do in their organizations and to society.
6.Experts agree on
the nature of the psychopath.
Experts agree on the presence of psychopathy in certain individuals (mean, callous, remorseless, coldblooded, aggressive) scoring high on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist. Experts disagree concerning the concept of psychopathy extended to other populations and when newer, different measuring tools are used to identify them. Differentiating successful vs. unsuccessful psychopaths, primary vs. secondary psychopaths is poorly handled. More exploration is needed.

The scorpion and the frog – notorious psychopath and seducible co-player

A scorpion and a frog are sitting on the bank of a river, and both need to get to the other side.


Asian forest scorpion in Khao Yai National Park, Thailand
"Hello, Mr. Frog!" calls the scorpion through the reeds. "Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the water? I have important business to conduct on the other side. And I cannot swim in such a strong current."

The frog immediately becomes suspicious.

"Well, Mr. Scorpion", he replies, "I appreciate the fact that you have important business to conduct on the other side of the river. But just take a moment to consider your request. You are a scorpion. You have a large stinger at the end of your tail. As soon as I let you onto my back, it is entirely within your nature to sting me."

The scorpion, who has anticipated the frog’s objections, counters thus:

"My dear Mr. Frog, your reservations are perfectly reasonable. But it is clearly not in my interest to sting you. I really do need to get to the other side of the river. And I give you my word that no harm will come to you."

The frog agrees, reluctantly, that the scorpion has a point. So he allows the fast-talking arthropod to scramble atop his back and hops, without further ado, into the water.
At first all is well. Everything goes exactly according to plan. But halfway across, the frog suddenly feels a sharp pain in his back – and sees, out of the corner of his eye, the scorpion withdraw his stinger from his hide. A deadening numbness begins to creep into his limbs.

"You fool!" croaks the frog. "You said you needed to get to the other side to conduct your business. Now we are both going to die!"

The scorpion shrugs and does a little jig on the drowning frog's back.

"Mr. Frog," he replies casually, "you said it yourself. I am a scorpion. It is in my nature to sting you."

With that, the scorpion and the frog both disappear beneath the murky, muddy waters of the swiftly flowing current. And neither of them is seen again.

Narzissmus ist die Grundlage des Bösen.

Dr. Hare ermittelte die Verteilungsrate von Psychopathen (Menschen eingerasted im "Raubtiermodus"):
1% Psychopathen – in der normalen Bevölkerung
4% Psychopathen – in den Führungsetagen von Firmen
25% Psychopathen – in den Gefängnissen

Literature (engl.)

Exploring the roots and ramifications of the normalizing of pathological narcissism in 20th century American culture using psychological, cultural, artistic and historical synthesis

The brain of a psychopath rests in the "predator mode." Robert D. Hare's check list on psychopathy was developed at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Hare evaluated the ratio of psychopaths (people set in "predator mode"):
1% psychopaths – normal population
4% (functional) psychopaths – CEOs/board members of companies
25% (dysfunctional) psychopaths – prison inmates

Neurological and social factors contributing to chronic antisocial behavior

Foreword: "My search to understand evil and its transformation is what attracted me to Paul Levy’s invaluable work. […] In helping us understand and face the lies that weave through our lives, Paul Levy’s work leads us to our extraordinary opportunity. […] It is a rare philosopher and spiritual leader who can help us to look into the mirror of our collective participation and denial. Yet, Paul Levy accomplishes this and more. He helps us find a way to explore the most intimate connections between our spiritual and material lives and the wider psychic storm and power lines in which we struggle. He makes a way through our madness, our "spiritual starvation," to invoke our imagination to literally "change our mind."  […] As you read Dispelling Wetiko, you will be challenged. You will savor moments of "ah ha." When you have finished, you will find that something has shifted. There are fewer spiritual calluses between your imagination and your daily life. You will see a way forward that you had not seen before. You will feel less isolated, more hopeful. You will never quite look at the world in exactly the same way again."  Foreword by Catherine Austin Fitts, US American former assistant secretary of housing under George H.W.

1 The brain waves of the sage operate predominantly in the slow theta frequency of approximately four to seven cycles per second (4-7 cps), or even slower. The alpha waves of ordinary meditation are in the frequency range of 8-13 cps, and the brain waves of a normal person are predominantly in the fast beta frequencies of 13+ cps. Dr. David R. Hawkins (1927-2012), I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 144, 2003

2 D. Hawkins: "Sharer of knowledge" ⇒ "mystic" ⇒ "Avatar"

3 Hawkins wrote on the final page of Power vs. Force, "The author was knighted for this work by the Danish Crown."8 This is untrue and a deliberate distortion of the facts. Hawkins was knighted for submitting a paper on low-cost mental health clinics to Fernando Flores for entry into the order – not for his "consciousness research." Second, the order that knighted him, the Sovereign Order of Hospitaliers of St. John of Jerusalem in the Americas, is not a legitimate order, but a self-styled order with questionable intentions.9 Hawkins is aware of the credibility issues within this order, but still keeps it in his author biography, in his books, and on his website. Additionally, it was a gross exaggeration for Hawkins to say that he was knighted "by the Danish Crown."10
The socalled Sovereign Order of Hospitaliers of St. John of Jerusalem in the Americas is a self-styled order and associated with the United States, not Denmark. orderstjohn.org, 22.

11 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him.
