The Narcissist’s Antisocial Solution

The Narcissist’s  Antisocial Solution

The narcissist renounces reality.  To his mind, those who fail to recognize his unbound talents, innate superiority, overarching brilliance, benevolent nature, entitlement, cosmically important mission, perfection, etc.  - do not deserve consideration.  The narcissist's has a natural affinity with the criminal - his lack of empathy and compassion, his deficient social skills,  his disregard for social laws and morals - now erupt and blossom. On the spectrum of Personality D/O, the Narcissist sits next to the Antisocial and Borderline Px/D/O

He eventually always becomes a fully fledged antisocial (sociopath or psychopath) as he continues to convince himself of his grandiosity, he specialness.  He develops into his own delusional False Self, now classic hubris which knows no bounds of entitlements.   He ignores the wishes and needs of others, he breaks the law, he violates all rights - natural and legal, he holds people in contempt and disdain, he derides society and its codes, and he punishes the ignorant - that, to his mind, drove him to this state. They are always on the hunt for the next convenient scapegoat to target their unconscious now displaced self rage from their trauma past.

The Masochistic Avoidant Solution used by Covert N

 Masochistic Avoidant Solution – Embracing the Victim Role The narcissist is always angered by the lack of an adequate narcissistic supply that he has depended on in his life thus far unil threatened.     He masochistic N will directs some of this fury inwards, punishing himself for his "failure".  This masochistic behavior has the added "benefit" of forcing the narcissist's closest relationship to assume the roles of dismayed spectators or of persecutors and thus, either way, to pay him the attention that he craves. Self-administered punishment often manifests as self-handicapping masochism - a narcissistic cop-out.  By undermining his work, his relationships and his efforts, the increasingly fragile narcissist avoids additional criticism and censure (negative supply).  Self- inflicted failure is the narcissist's doing and thus proves that he is the master of his own fate. Masochistic narcissists keep finding themselves in self-defeating

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy of The Covert / Closet Narcissistic Personality Disorder - Excellent Summary

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy of The Covert Narcissistic Personality Disorder (Closet): A Developmental Self and Object Relations Approach By JAMES MASTERS A therapist baffled by a therapeutic impasse with a “borderline” patient Asks for a consultation and gives a good description of the patient’s clinical picture: depression, difficulty with self-assertion, clinging in relationships and with the therapist, difficulties with anger and impulse control, an inadequate sense of self, and denial of self-destructive behavior. The diagnosis of borderline personality disorder of the self seemed correct, and the therapist used the appropriate therapeutic intervention of confrontation. However, the patient, rather than integrating the confrontations to develop a therapeutic alliance, instead responded either by attacking the therapist and becoming more and more resistant, or by seeming to integrate the confrontations, but without a change in affect or the developi

NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER - by Dr. Maria Hsia Chang

This is one of the BEST articles on NPD that I have used most extensively over the years. NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER http://www.unr.edu/cla/polisci/famaria_hsia_chang.htm By Dr. Maria Hsia Chang, Professor, Political Science, University of Nevada , Reno mariac@unr.nevada.edu In psychology, personality disorders refer to individual traits that reflect ingrained, inflexible, and maladaptive patterns of behavior that cause discomfort and impair a person’s ability to function--including her relations with friends and family. At least ten distinct personality disorders have been identified, one of which is the narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) that the American Psychological Association (APA) classifies as a “cluster B” disorder. NPD is a highly complex psychological - behavioral syndrome that confounds and baffles those close to the afflicted. Once understood, however, one achieves clarity of vision. Socio-biologists maintain that narcissism is natural f
