    "A person who gives too much importance to himself, to the extent that he does not think about the feelings and sentiments of other people is said to be a narcissist. People who are narcissists consider themselves to be perfectionists who can never do anything wrong. They are governed by their false ego which requires ample amounts of admiration and praise to survive. It is said that narcissists live in a world of their own where they can think only about their problems and issues regarding power, prestige and personal adequacy. This makes them selfish individuals who do not have the ability to understand the problems of people around them. Such people are said to suffer from the problem of narcissistic personality disorder. As their egos are very fragile, a slight disrespect or challenge can lead to the development of fury which can cause harm to the person who was the reason for such provocation..." --Deepa Kartha


    Joanna M. Ashmun, a well-known author on the topic of narcissism, writes:

    [The narcissist's] moral intelligence is about at the level of a bright five- or six-year-old; the only rules they recognize are things that have been specifically required, permitted, prohibited, or disapproved of by authority figures they know personally.

    Ashmun lists the major traits of narcissism, listed as bullet-points below:

    An absolutely great discourse @ Doug Ross @ Journal: FOREVER SIX: The Traits of a Narcissist

    It's a perfect description of Mitt Romney, that's what.

    George W. Bush was also a classic narcissist. His big giveaway was how anyone around him instantly got a derogatory nickname. Bush had to show that he was the bully in control.

    Now, let's look at Obama.

    1. Possibly the most mellow president in American history.
    2. Dislikes people sucking up to him
    3. Plays scrupulously fair in competitions
    4. Comfortable in social situations, doesn't make embarrassing gaffes

    Obama is kind of an anti-narcissist in his personality. Longknife's crank source is kind of retarded in that it claims Obama is a narcissist ... because he eats well and stays trim. Who knew you had to be fatty in order to not to be a narcissist?

    Now, let's look at Romney. Some big signs of narcissism there.

    1. Always cheats to win, even with his own children.
    2. Chronic liar.
    3. Every issue has to be made about Mitt Romney.
    4. Cringeworthy in social situations, can't speak without insulting someone.

    I was once told, by a liberal, especially Obama, that every President is a narcissist. I think you see Obama in a distorted light. He is very much a man that hates his authority challenged, he was quoted in an interview that he would not change anything he did as President, that alone is a narcissistic point of view. There is a distortion in his fact to make himself look good.

    Again, I don't know if this is a bad trait, most every President, I have studied is that way.

    Obama is a gentleman. Romney is not.

    I see both as politicians, they would rather screw you over. It is what they are.
