PAUL ROMANO: “What Kind Of Person Is William ‘Master’ Gates On The Inside?”

Ascension Avatar

Comments from the video thread:

“His eyes, his voice, his energy just creeps me out! Especially recently, he keeps smirking, duper’s delight, while talking about death… and laughing manically. I don’t know what that is, but it’s not human.

“He uses his hands alot when he talks and in a strange way, too. He doesn’t even seem very intelligent when he speaks either. He also looks very sloppy most of the time too. Just not very put together for a billionaire. Is this really the best they could come up with?”

“I see the same things! His hand gestures are really unsettling. And the way he talks with dumbed down, repetitive words… he would give Trump a run for his money… bigly.”

“Why does a billionaire have a 12 dollar haircut?”

LISA RENEE: “All or Nothing Thinking”

Ascension Avatar

“All-or-nothing thinking refers to thinking in extremes. You are either a success or a failure. Something is right or it’s wrong. In order to overcome all-or-nothing thinking, it is important to avoid thinking in negative, absolute terms. Most often the narcissist does this as an attempt to stabilize their sense of self positivity in order to preserve their Self Esteem, by perceiving themselves as purely upright or admirable and others who do not conform to their will or values as purely wicked or contemptible.”

~Lisa Renee

Cognitive Distortions are exaggerated, obsessive or irrational thought patterns that are believed to perpetuate the effects of psychopathological states, especially depression and anxiety. When we over-rely on cognitive distortions, we usually interpret events in such a way that fuels emotions such as anxiety, depression, or anger. All-or-nothing thinking is one such distortion. All-or-nothing thinking refers to thinking in extremes. You are either a success…

JEAN M. TWENGE, PhD: “Is Donald Trump Actually Insecure Underneath?”

Circle of the Dolphins

I’m often asked how you can spot a narcissist. Here’s my standard list:

  • Brag or show off
  • Name-dropping
  • Name brands or flashy possessions
  • Look at themselves in the mirror a lot
  • Turn the conversation back to him/herself
  • Insults others
  • Declarations about being the “best” or “great” without details
  • Emphasizes his/her status

I wrote that list two years ago — long before Donald Trump started running for president. Yet it could have been written just for him. As others have pointed out, the Donald is a textbook case of narcissistic personality. He is clearly functioning well and thus can’t be classified as having narcissistic personality disorder, the clinical-level form, which by definition only describes someone whose traits are causing them difficulty. Trump, instead, displays narcissism as a personality trait — the type we focus on in The Narcissism Epidemic.

Here’s the question: Is Trump’s narcissism a cover for insecurity? This is…

NOT-SO-FUNNY ‘HUMOR’ ~ “Trumpty Dumpty”

Circle of the Dolphins

My mother was recently telling me about interviews she had seen on television, featuring testimonies of Donald Trump’s former childhood classmates and neighbors.

“They said even then he was a rich, self-entitled, know-it-all snob, a bully who used to chase little girls, push them to the ground, sit on them and pull their hair until they cried.”

“Sounds about right.” I said. “Ivana Trump said the same things. Pulled-out clumps of her hair, before raping her. I’m sure she was paid-off, because she denies it now.”

“I KNOW what his problem is,” my 83-year old mother said, “I blame his MOTHER. She  should have slapped his face over and over again, and thrown him against the wall.”

“Maybe she DID,” I replied, “and that’s the problem.”

“THE ART OF THE ORDEAL” ~ Tony Schwartz on ‘Sociopath’ President Donald Trump

Ascension Avatar

“Trump is not only willing to lie, but he doesn’t get bothered by it, doesn’t feel guilty about it, isn’t preoccupied by it. There’s an emptiness inside Trump. There’s an absence of a soul. There’s an absence of a heart. Because he has no conscience, he has no guilt. All he wants to do is make the case that he would like to be true. And while I do think he is probably aware that more walls are closing around him than ever before, he does not experience the world in the way an ordinary human being would.”
