Yesterday the AD received a copy of a Psychologist’s report on a certain female which had her diagnosed as a Narcissist with Paranoid Tendencies. As we all know this comes under the DSM-IV criteria under personality disorders such as sociopath.
According to DSM IV – A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy. Has a grandiose feeling of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements, talents, overestimates abilities, expects to be treated as special & recognized as superior)
According to Wikipedia, A Narcissist with Paranoid tendencies has the following traits.
An individual whose self-esteem is severely arrested, who usually displays major paranoid tendencies, and who holds on to an illusion of omnipotence. These people are fighting delusions of insignificance and lost value, and trying to re-establish their self-esteem through grandiose fantasies and self-reinforcement. When unable to gain recognition or support from others, they take on the role of a heroic or worshiped person with a grandiose mission.
The most common trait of a narcissist is pathological lying and self deception. Self deception is defined as the act of lying to yourself or of making yourself believe something that isn’t really true.
We have more files, letters and documents to review and will follow up on these shortly.
