The Psychoanalyzing of Obama

We all know that Obama thinks the world evolves around him, but what does psychology say about him?

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV-TR) is the diagnostic manual used by mental health professionals.  A diagnosis of narcissism requires five out of nine characteristics.  Note these traits must endure overtime and must not be reactions to a particular situation or environmental stressor:

  1. Grandiose sense of self-importance.
  2. Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, beauty, or ideal love.
  3. Sense of specialness, belief he can only be understood by or should associate only with other special or high-status individuals or institutions.
  4. Need for excessive admiration.
  5. Heightened sense of entitlement, leading to unreasonable expectations that others should treat him especially favorably or comply automatically with his expectations.
  6. Tendency to be interpersonally exploitive.  A person with NPD does not hesitate in taking advantage of others to meet his own ends.
  7. Lack of empathy, an inability or unwillingness to recognize or identify with the feelings or needs of others.
  8. An envy of other people, or conversely, a belief that other people envy him.
  9. A tendency toward arrogant behavior or attitude

Seems there’s NINE out of NINE characteristics.

We don’t need someone in the oval office who thinks everything is about him.

    A whole blog dedicated to nothing but trashing President Obama? Wow, what a waste. Get over it a black man is in the White House. The country had to suffer through Reagan, two Bushes and Republican lite Clinton. Obama is just one more politician owned by Wall Street as they are all.

  2. History doesn’t agree that the nation “suffered” through Reagan, Bushes, and Clinton. But just in one year, Obama has destroyed the economy. Looking into 2010, there is nothing to show the economy will recover this year. If you think we’ve been “suffering” for the past 30 years, son, you’ve seen nothing yet.
