E carregará pela vida uma síndrome de estresse pós-traumático.
This is not a psychological study but contains a great test.
I wish I knew about this book before I ever met him.
This is a must-read for anyone who considers starting a relationship that could end up toxic!
One of the most important points Navarro makes is to warn the reader that narcissists are not only insufferably self-centered and arrogant, but they can be dangerous and “in fact Narcissists take a terrible toll on society.” If you do business with them you are likely to be cheated. And if “you are married to a Narcissist, don’t expect equality of any kind—you are not equals and you never will be. You may think things will improve over time, but they won’t.” The narcissistic personality is remarkably rigid. Their traits are hardwired into the neurons of their brains.
More than half the booklet consists of 131 numbered characteristics of narcissists. For example:
“6. Has a sense of entitlement--expecting to be treated special or given priority at all times.”
“7. Is interpersonally exploitative of others and takes advantage of others for personal gain.”
“12. Has an exaggerated sense of privilege that allows him to bend rules and break laws.”
“72. Believes he has the answer and solution to most problems no matter how complex.”
Note the use of the masculine pronoun; however Navarro identifies Cinderella’s step mother as a classical example of the narcissist.
I wish Navarro had made a distinction between narcissists and sociopaths. Of course often they are one and the same.
