Narcissistic Personality Disorder. An interesting discussion from BBC Radio 4 - although one could say it just shows the medical profession itself suffers from NPD.

Some healthy differing views amongst the profession, it will be intriguing to see how (if) it develops.

One "expert" claims it reduces with age - that could be promising.

Anyway, if you've got some spare time, and are interested, have a read.

Just reread the article and it triggered a memory. When I was at college doing the psychiatry module, we learned about many different disorders....and it was amazing how when we were learning about the behaviour of a disorder, we would suddenly see people demonstrating those behaviours all around us in the streets and shops. We brought this up in class and...

The article (though I have only skimmed it so far) puts it well - these types have always existed and now is their moment in the spotlight.

By that measure, no - I don't think narcissism is on the rise but simply more talked about.
One important point is that people with NPD are potential abusers. Its something to be aware of and to understand that the NPD abuser doesn't "have your own best interests at heart" "only wants you to change for your own good" or any of the other excuses they use. They won't change because they see no need to and its not "how they show their love"

We brought this up in class and the lecturer said it was a common phenomenon....not that the world had suddenly become filled with people with mental health disorders but because once we knew what we were looking at, we noticed them. The same thing can happen with a doctor who has just done training on a specific illness or disability....its at the front of their consciousness and they find themselves considering it more as a possible diagnosis. The actual illness rate doesn't go up but the diagnosis rate does.

hey - self-referential sentence - was that intentional - cool either way

[ self referential - "I am a liar" - this sentence is false - polysyllabic is long and short is short]
// and the lecturer said it was a common phenomenon.//

didnt Freud have something to say about this?
( oo jah, you see zees avry day ) or something

you see "knight's move thinking" (*) on AB every day - but that doesnt mean that the usual suspects are MAD does it? - not all of them I mean ....

(*) = one brown skinned man stabs someone in London and so we will be murdered in our beds again tonight .....
intersting PP I don't know of anyone who was murdered more than once.....
// doctor who has done training on a specific illness ....its at the front of their consciousness and they find themselves considering it more as a possible diagnosis.//
diagnostic craze we used to say

actually that is 'recall bias' in more modern technology

so 3T will say that the greatest Briton was Churchill and ignore Pitt the Elder (*)and Pitt the Younger, (**) which are buried in his memory ....

(*) and (**) message from 3T - who dey den?

and other recall bias - 30% schoolkids think Beatles were present at the Battle of Waterloo in 1915 and helped the Americans win it .....

// I don't know of anyone who was murdered more than once//
yeah yeah that is what I mean - disordered finking yeah?
