    Many famous people have narcissistic traits. You may know someone personally who exhibits this type of personality disorder. While reading this you may even say to yourself; "Damn....that fits him to a Tee!!!"




    People who have shown narcissistic personality disorder are well documented. Criminals exhibit this trait. Dictators almost always exhibit extreme traits. Some would say that Charlie Sheen exhibits narcissism.

    Here is a list of famous people that could have been defined by psychologists as at the very least borderline personality disorders:

    Mommar Quaddafi
    Joseph Stalin
    Adolph Hitler
    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
    Tom Cruise
    Oprah Winfrey
    Micheal Jackson
    Elvis Presley
    Sylvester Stallone
    Steven Seagal
    Mel Gibson
    Burt Reynolds
    Jean-Claude Van Damme


    These are just the most obvious.

    The problem seems to be narcissists tend to attract facilitators. Many are wealthy and are surrounded by sycophants who allow them to get away with conduct that most people can't. They allow them to indulge their fantasies in hopes of basking in their glow or maybe some of their greatness will rub off on them, or better yet, a few bucks may come their way.

    It seems that eventually people who drift to the dark-side of narcissism end up going into a pit of despair and eventually destroy themselves. There are healthy forms of narcissism. Feelings of self-worth or self-confidence for one. Sticking to their principles is another. Being inflexible and not compromising on important issues. Ronald Reagan was a prime example of this even though Ron jr. can't seem to stop trashing him in public because of differences in lifestyles and political beliefs. People with strong personalities tend to rub people the wrong way.

    Many may admire a narcissist at the same time many hate them. It seems to go with the territory. I've been reading around and the best suggestion I saw was avoidance. If you meet one, avoid them at all costs. When two narcissists get together there are usually angry exchanges because neither will give an inch on issues. Sometimes when you get in an argument with a narcissist you need to take a step back and stop responding because let's face it, you're never going to change their minds. Too many years of denial and lying to themselves have gone into the making of their personality. Sometimes it's best to just cut your losses, real or imagined, and just drop the conversation.

    Just food for thought
