Dr. Todd Grande describes Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder as outlined in the DSM 5, is characterized by
– a grandiose sense of self-importance,
– a preoccupation with unlimited success, feeling too special to    be understood by regular people,
– needing excessive admiration,
– a sense of entitlement,
– being interpersonally exploitative,
– having a lack of empathy,
– being envious and others and believe others are envious of        them,
– and being arrogant.

Even the slightest criticism is not well received by most people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. IMHO I believe it is because they have internalized rather Low Self Esteem.

This video has very good information and lots of it. Unfortunately the good Doctor is not that great a presenter. Might I suggest to break up viewing this video into 10 to 15 minute segments.

Informative video, but the framing drives me nuts. She should redo it, as no one is interested in looking at her ceiling tiles while she talks.

“The most important years of life: Our beginning” lecture by Dr. Allan Schore

The first few years (especially the 1st two years) of your life, literally created the type of person that you are today. Attachment Theory has brought forth new discoveries about Human Brain development. It not just about physical needs (blood oxygen etc). Nurture is just as important. Dr. Schore uses the terms “Mother Nature” and also “Mother Nurture“. There is being developed a combined Psychological Development and Biological Development model.

The very young baby has no language. All communications are visual and “emotional”. The baby perceives the world using non-verbal communications. Since the left brain has not started to develop, then all non-verbal communications takes place and develops in the right hemisphere of the brain. The baby communicates and perceives emotion via it’s eyes and “intuition”. As adults we shift to verbal left brain communications

Codependency and Personality Disorders like NPD, BPD and Psychpathy seem to be related to the type of Attachment Trauma experienced by the developing infant. Both the Codependent and the Narcissist seem to have a severe lack of self esteem at their core.

This is a fascinating video where Dr. Schore discusses the cutting edge research, which is changing our knowledge of the development of normal  Human Beings and also pf Human Monsters..

Narcissistic & Borderline couples – The Dance of Dysfunction

Two Narcissists often form relationships, as long as they are of two different type of Narcissists. For example a Somatic Narcissist will not compete for the Narcissist Supply needed by a Cerebral Narcissist and so they can both form a couple..

Another common relationship is between someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder and someone with Borderline Personality Disorder. The dance of dysfunction.

A female with BPD will try to control the Narcissist. The term “Golden Vagina” comes into play. The Narcissist needs to also be superior and come out on top. The Narcissist is used to controlling others. Being controlled by the person with BPD will unhinge the Narcissist.

A person with BPD can also quickly flip between Loving the Narcissist and Hating the Narcissist, thus triggering the Narcissist’s fear of losing their source of Narcissistic Supply and extreme fear of abandonment. Hence the Dance of Dysfunction.

Red Flag of a Narcissist #2: “Rushing Intimacy”

The next Red Flag from a Narcissist to watch for is “Rushed Intimacy“.

It goes hand in hand with Love Bombing (a manipulative way to instill Trust). Love bombing is the deliberate use of an intense, concerted show of affection toward an individual (target) they seek to influence.
