Donald Trump a Malignant Narcissist: What Does that Mean for You?
January 29, 2017
Yesterday, leading psychologists and therapists in the world have gone against professional ethics to share with the world what a danger people with Malignant Narcissism can be to the people around him and also the nation. What is the definition if this psychological disorder? How can we see this type of person in our own lives?
This morning in (US Uncut), Zach Cartwright breaks the news of a John Hopkins teacher and psychologist diagnosing the many strange and radical behaviors of our present president:
Malignant Narcissists will go to great lengths to achieve their aim. They can be intelligent, high functioning (hold an important job for example) soft-spoken, charming, tearful/seemingly emotional, gracious, well mannered, kind and have the ability to form relationships. They may lie, falsely accuse, dramatize, smear, cheat, steal, manipulate, accuse, blame or twist to get what they want and feel justified in doing so. Because they are entitled, egocentric and desperate, they do not experience it as wrong. They are determined to gratify their wishes and furious if thwarted. Their desire can be so consuming that there is little comprehension of, respect for or ability to empathize with the other. They lack guilt or remorse and tend to feel or pronounce that it is they who have been mistreated.

Continued from above:
In my extensive studies of narcissism, I understand that though most of us think we get the gist of this psychological behavior, the undercurrent of it is hard to see until you get too close. My studies were born from a desire to understand a few examples of narcissistic people in my own life, including my own father. Each of these people made me feel as if I was going crazy, because their reality was so eschewed from my own.
Clearly, a large class of United States citizens has gotten close enough now to see exactly what could happened if we let this behavior go unchecked. Good hearted people have basically been hypnotized by consistent lying.
In Psychology Today (January 2017) we see how “malignant” this kind of lying behavior has affect the election and now the entire world:
As Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels famously stated, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” The Hasher/Goldstein /Toppino study appears to provide the empirical evidence to support that claim.
With Donald Trump in office for the next four years — who, according to Politico, lied once every three minutes and 15 seconds over five hours of speeches and press conferences — this can only spell trouble for the American brain as it struggles to comprehend what’s true and what’s false. As Politifact confirmed, 69 percent of Trump’s statements fact-checked during the campaign season were either rated “mostly false,” “false,” or “pants on fire.” Only 16 percent of his statements were rated “true” or “mostly true.”
Most of the people I know who are Democratic and looking at our future without prescription sunglasses on, can see a grave problem looming just before us and wonder just how we could undo what so many U.S. citizens have made happen.
We might start by noticing how we have dealt with narcissism in our personal lives. I’m sure you have known people that are so overbearing or, quite the opposite, charismatic and charming in the public and then suddenly become malignant and mean as you get closer. This kind of behavior is all around us. We must learn to identify it quickly and secure ourselves from the deep and dangerous daggers that can come from a man or woman with this psychological disorder.
I’ve shared before how I recently had to quit a job because I realized—a little too late (even though I had been warned by some good friends)—that I was dealing with a narcissist. My experience with this man and with another boss (a woman narcissist) from the past was almost exactly the same.
- Charming and loving at first: “What can I do for you?” “How can I help you in life?”
- Overly complimentary and cheering you on: “You are the perfect person for a job that I have. I fought to get you into this position though others tried to say you weren’t good enough.”
- Once you say yes! The charming friendship stops. The person starts to slowly assert his or her negative and often cruel criticism of you and others. Usually you will be drawn in the criticism of others. They get you close enough to make you feel you are in the inner circle.
- You enter into a relationship that you feel bound to (this could be marriage to a narcissistic partner where the bad behavior doesn’t start until after you have a child).
- Then YOU feel trapped and often feel as if your own mind is warped. What happened to all of the bright and wonderful compliments and the friendship? I want it back, you think. What you get is your careful attempt to regain that person’s approval, which only happens occasionally, just enough to keep you connected. Alas, when you get just a taste of this nice behavior again, you think, there is that charming person I thought he was.
- That malignant narcissist shares his/her true colors. You see clearly how evil and ugly it looks, as if you’re staring down an ugly green monster. The reality sets in. You feel trapped with a person that you will never please. EVER!
Most therapist and psychologists say that you can tell when your client is a narcissist when the therapist comes out of the therapy session thinking s/he’s the one who’s crazy!
The only true way to rid yourself of a narcissist is to separate quickly and never go back. Don’t look back or you will turn into a pillar of salt. Don’t believe you can correct his or her behavior. You can’t. The diagnosis is mostly incurable, or quite probably, incurable, according to the scientific definition.
In our case—as a nation—we must find a large enough majority to force Congress and the House (even the Republicans) to see we will not be moved or stop protesting until something is changed. Majorities win. The more power of light and good we have, the harder the malignancy will seem to fight. Remember, “Light can’t conceive darkness. Where there is light, darkness does not perceive it.” This is directly from the bible.
We can and will overcome this malignancy with steadfast truth-seeking and consistently standing firm TOGETHER in what we believe, not in what is told to us by the present lawmakers and government.
We are the force behind who gets elected. The officials must answer to us! How our lives are affected by the radical changes happening all around us will not go away by any of us turning a blind eye.
“Be ever watchful and vigilant. The robber comes in the night when you’re not looking.”
You don’t get to this voice if reason or recognize it unless you spend time with yourself in silence, asking yourself important self-talk questions. This is like dating. You must get to know the voice of the Spirit by spending time in meditation and silence. This is the only I know to clearly download the power of wisdom and recognize the voice—IN TIMES OF TRAUMA—that is always directing YOU into safety!
Deciding on and living by your core values is a tenuous challenge. My many years of spiritual coaching and life coaching can help you with this. I have helped many people in this situation see light and overcome the darkness of the past. Give me a call: 954-253-6493. SKYPE sessions are available. http://www.bosebastian.com/client-praise/
