We live in a culture of extreme narcissism, covert and overt - fucks these days cannot compromise, share, or care enough...

...to look up from their phone and give a fuck about another person. We are a society of selfish, ignorant fucks destined to die alone. When did it become like this? Is it our parents fault?

by Anonymousreply 303/06/2019

Blaming your parents is lame. Put away your phones. Take on some personal responsibility for dealing with the situation. I guess you could say the technology comes from your parents generation and before. But how central to the culture it has become is not because of them. There is a choice as to how it is used, how pervasive it is. You are entirely right about the narcissism and lessening of empathy so best start working against it.

Millennials have taken narcissism to the nth degree. The gay ones especially. Theirs is a version of Keeping up with the Joneses, except instead of material goods, the competition is measured by sculpted muscles, Instagrammable photos and notching as many sexual partners as possible.

Yes, R13. Lots of fundamentalist groups studied and “proved” “gay narcissism” back in 50s and 60s. Narcissism may be one of the many “causes” of homosexuality they believed. Lots of gay men from that time project that homophobia onto gays today.

Don't blame the gay millenials as the majority of this problem. Certainly, they are a major part of the problem, but in New York City, I didn't see the same ratio of phone obsession between millenial males and females until a few years ago. They are both riding high on the twit-wit bandwagon and I can't wait for the day the ones most guilty of their selfish behaviors crash and burn when the tower comes crashing down and they can't even text their therapist to get an appointment. Payphone? Oh no. They are far too stupid to know how to use it.

I recall one time seeing some twit-wit millenial girl walking through Herald Square reading her phone and tripping over a chair. She fell to the grown in her teeney little skirt and started bleeding. Of course, she was bawling like the pathetic ho she is and NOBODY went over to help her. Grown men AND women looked over, and went back to their coffee and newspaper. She hobbled off, and as she limped away in tears, continued to look at her phone to text. Next time I hope she has a meeting with an open manhole.

[quote]The truth is the rise in narcissism among millennials may have less to do with our social networks online and more to do with our social networks at home. Throughout the last few decades, there has been an increase in parental coddling and the so-called "self-esteem" movement. Parents and teachers trying to instill a healthy sense of self-esteem in children by praising them lavishly often do more harm than good. In fact, studies show that children offered compliments for a skill they have not mastered or talents that they do not have are left feeling emptier and more insecure.

Pretty much, I think narcissistic personality disorder is nurtured in the kids by narcissistic parents. I'm the non-narcissist, out of 3 children, raised by a malignant narcissist dad and co-dependent/enabling/narcissist mom. The difference is that I was the identified truth-teller, scapegoat, and outsider, and I wouldn't ever stop telling the truth about the fuckers.

The family was an abusive and tragic train wreck.

by Anonymousreply 7903/08/2019

The actual disorder has specific criteria but that doesn't mean most people are narcissistic to an unhealthy degree. Parents, like mine, can be extreme in the sense they give no fucks for their children's identity or well-being.

by Anonymousreply 8003/09/2019

R67 is actually calling out the misunderstanding on this thread. Many here mistaking narcissism as vanity /self interest. Age, generation doesn't factor in. Narcs share 1 common denominator with psycho/sociopaths and autism/aspergers. Those 3 have one major character flaw/trait that basically makes them disposable units.

LACK OF EMPATHY

THAT'S what you need to be on the lookout for. Keep your eyes peeled.

The sociopath & narcissist can conceal this inner corruption but those on autism spectrum are not capable, self aware.

The most dangerous of these would take the form of the COVERT NARCISSISTIC SOCIOPATH.

They don't display their inner malfunction as someone who is in love with themselves or attention seekers. Usually quite introverted. That's why they're so dangerous! Malignant narcissist of the covert type or more outgoing style consider themselves first before anyone. No matter the style, they don't deep down really think well of themselves. Both believe they are deserving of material items/life circumstances/personality traits and good looks.. and for others to believe they are special in some way. An overt will readily display thoughts and behavior that reflect this entitlement. Overt or covert they resent and envy others for having possessions or traits they wish they owned. Besides lacking empathy their comorbid sickness is ENVY.

Envy is a built in human trait. Normal people will use this trait to identify what they want out of life. They seek mentors or celebrity characters as guides to teach them how to achieve their desires..but there's no malice involved. They're supportive of their idols. Can feel joy for idol's/friends/family member achievements. The malignant "green narcissists", envy is a sickness. They not only idolize or secretly look up to those who possess what they wish for themselves but instead rather to take it away from the person they envy.

Follow with examples of the different branches of sick. What to look out for like signs a mostly well adjusted individual is 90% sure to miss. A healthy person struggles to be aware of the narcissist's warped predilection, is incapable of discerning the tell tale signs until maybe much later in life. Even a narcissist might struggle to wrap their heads around a Ted Bundy. The well adjusted will experience a shock to their core & scrambled belief in the human race. It's a hit in the gut for these souls. Struggling to fathom that monsters walk amongst us. Since the virus narcissist is ALWAYS working off of a malignant operating style (projecting their motives onto others [borderlines/paranoids overlap] with projection & validation) reaction to Ted Bundy is at least they're not as bad as him! The difference? Normal people focus outside of themselves onto the whole human race. The narcissist goes inside themselves and focuses on the comparison of themselves to Ted Bundy. At least I'm not a serial killer!

There's so many examples, seemingly benevolent feelings and actions towards those in their orbit. It is up to the innocent to play detective with various scenarios and record the true MOTIVATION for the narc's behavior.

The innocent must recollect these behaviors in ALL scenarios. A handwritten private journal disguised as a book or misleading first few pages as some mundane ledger for weight loss or decorating ideas. Disguised as a scrapbook the narcissist has no interest in. Use their self centered, lazy nature. THIS is how you'll expose their disorder. Self preservation.

Think of ordinarily seeming parents who only smother you with support when you reflect positively on them. Polar opposite if you dare be young, innocent and screw up in their eyes.

No empathy to how you may be feeling after you fucked up. It's how THEY feel it reflects on them. See, because you don't really exist for you. You're a personal nonentity. These replaceable, disposable scourge good for nothings, of all people, are deeming to place themselves above you. And YOU in comparison is in fact superior in every way. Deserving of upmost investment. You're cut from a finer cloth.

Used to read all about narcissism for the past decade. Still do. 3 years on free from a covert narcissistic psychopath. An IT director in a well known company to us all- located in Google Headquarters building in Chelsea blocks from Midtown.

My mom was a flagrant narcissist. Because of her mostly grandiose manner it was difficult for me to evade the downtrodden morose sadsack of my eventual captor of the covert sort later in life. My mom grandiose, yes, but in a somewhat refined manner. This covert narc psychopath flew under the radar by displaying more of a regular nerdy guy who grew up in circumstances no one would envy. They make you wanna rescue them. HIS MOTHER however was a flaming, flagrant VULGAR low rent shrew. Absentee father. This combo fuels the development of psychopathic males. Produces a permanent state of pure RAGE.

Know these signs if the above scenario fits an individual. Not all from these circumstances of course. But be hyperviligant of someone's marginal beginning such as above^. Not all psychopaths are serial killers but all serial killers are psychopaths. Research their childhoods and you're gonna find about 85% of SK had a domineering mother and absent bio father who bailed.

So important to share. You read news articles every day of the mask slipping.

Quietly, w/o arousing suspicion plan your exit. Anyone who reads this and recognizes the signs above get out or you'll one day be featured in the Daily Fail on a slow news day.
