Good link, Joan. Thanks!

Seems to be a world wide change, and I've got the bad feeling that there's more to come. I'm not looking forward to the elections here in March...

Given the unrelenting criticism poured onto those in political life, some narcissism is necessary for their survival.

When enough Americans see that reality, we will accept more of the responsibility of self government and relieve those we elect of some of the decision making.

One way to do that is for more states to provide in their Constitutions for the direct initiative and referendum that voters in only eighteen states now have.

Let's not talk about all this narcissistic stuff and just talk about me!

Not you! Me!

Joan, given that the severity of NPD varies from mild to severe, did you see anything on how many "normal" people have it, and when therapists take an interest in it?
