    I enjoyed this video and have been meaning to look more in depth at the differences between narcissists and other personality disorders. As different neuroses can look the same without context.

    I think that more important than an armchair diagnosis is identifying destructive people in your life, and finding ways to mitigate the damage. Ideally this would be by not having them in your life, but sometimes that's not compatible with living up to one's own ideology.



    It may just be human nature and perhaps it's easy to create categorization of society when dealing with flawed subtypes of the human ego. Oftentimes it becomes an issue that can stem back from earlier generations and piecing together events that transpired is sometimes interesting to wonder about. Cultural traits as well as societal norms and conforming within them often can be debilitating within a society that does not wish to change the course of how things have always been done, or are expected. I've been looking at the genome of family members and wondering what might have affected things in their upbringing; sort of how gene expression is the result of the environment that further acclimated the negative aspects of neurosis. Though things like bipolar disorder can be considered to have more genetic components, things like borderline could be considered personality disorders that are more cyclical and recursive in a loop cycle of personality dysregulation (labile self-worth,) akin to depression. A narcissist will generally try to separate themselves and not consider others as anymore than an accessory to their ego-identity, in as much as denying how they have wronged someone or others through neglect and pretend make-believe consideration for their existence, in as much as they would prefer to create a scenario that empowers themselves through victimization and lacking insight into theory of mind when it serves no importance to their own modus of self-interest.

    In some ways I wonder how the internet will affect society for the better or worse; does using social media create dysfunctional social dynamics that will further exacerbate an echo chamber of unresolved antipathy towards social functions (where having to pretend to like family get-togethers might not be as earnest as we like to believe, or where the absence of input or predilection for neurosis and isolation leads to jumping at shadows under the pretext of acclimatizing social niceties? Does the false image people choose to express using a cultivated ego platform such as exists, only encourage an endemic aspect of human nature to wish to identify with the gestalt of a super-ego? To what extent does neurosis exacerbate the furtherance of a compassionate society, if all it creates are an amoral heterogeneous recursive function to societal equilibrium?

    I'll just post this test while I'm at it: Are You Suffering From Childhood Emotional Neglect? [Quiz]

    I should mention that I have Schizoid traits, and BPD traits, and this website explains much of what creates BPD (often upbringing from Narcissists will excerbate sensetivity.) Generally a BPD is characterized by sensetivity and intensity.

    Absolutely sick of the "antisemitism" hype being kicked up by Zionists and British Jews alike.

    They are trying the best to destroy the Labour party and tarnish Corbyn as a Nazi

    Which is just so far removed from reality. Their power is such that you can't even mention the word "Jew" without them jumping on you, but even if you completely skip the word "Jew" and jump straight to Zionism, they'll still jump on for being racist.

    Just got blocked from one of the Labour pages for telling them (Jewish membership) they need to stop bleating about antisemitism, they are a small minority attempting to destroy Europe's largest Socialist party. They absolutely sicken me and it's evident to me why they have been "persecuted" for thousands of years - they are completely self interested, subversive and pose a legitimate threat to democracy.

    I'd do what Hitler done and kick them all the fuck out. They can't be trusted at all.
    That's one thing me and the "far right" can agree on.

    I'd be called an anti Semite for that, but it's just facts. I couldn't care if they were fucking Martians, Elephants of Leprechauns - shut the fuck up and get the fuck outt
    Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

    Sinny, Labour has been pandering to the sizeable UK muslim vote for years now.
    I was just working with a muslim coworker yesterday who refused to work in Israel for "personal reasons" - apparently bigotry and your belief system telling you to hate and persecute people for their belief system is a valid work avoidance excuse now in this country too.

    You know it's bad when even CNN and the Guardian are reporting on it: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/08/17/u...ntl/index.html

    Got this passive aggressive email today at 3pm from some project manager. "There's still 4 bugs and they haven't been fixed and I'm not going to be the one who explains again that it won't be delivered this release." I'm all "wtf". One of the bugs has the label "needs to be fixed in this release", which I'm doing - it was only raised two days ago. But the other 3 say "needs to be fixed at some later date", so, you know, prioritise. Fix them later. My manager emails back, because I'm just over it "what's it mean? this release? next release? some later date?" and she says "those are just defaults which we generally disregard. If it's priority XY, it means it's gotta be this release." Oh cool. So words don't mean anything. A bunch of other shit too.

    How do they pander to the Muslim vote?

    Birmingham at least now has British Asian MP , Preet Gill who may or may not be muslim, but guess what? She's doing her job representing the people, unlike that German Blairite Gisela Stuart.

    Israel, you mean the theocractic occupiers who routinely hold rallies chanting "Death to Arabs" and routinely shoot them in the eyes, bollocks and legs in order to purposely cripple?

    Can't say I blame him, I wouldn't step foot into a country with a warrant out for my death and the autonomy to maim me for life either.

    That's like me saying I'm not going back into Northern Ireland if British troops are back on the ground there - because guess what they do to Irish Nationals? Shoot to kill or maim.

    So your co-worker has my full support. Must be nice being a white British male with a decent salary - the rest of the worlds problems aren't your problems, right?

    You're proving the point here with the exact same bigotry towards Jews as the party you hold so dear. You've obviously been wrapped up in the propaganda and hive mind of that group of Jew hating socialists. With their support for huge government, It's not a hop, skip and a jump to full blown fascism, which for some reason gets branded as "far right" when it's ideologically closer to the left. With just more authoritarianism over social mandate than classic liberalism.

    No harm would come to him going to Israel, much like the many thousands of people who cross the wall from the west bank to work in Israel every day. It's pure bigotry and ideological hate for them (not their response to it) that stops him and many others like him from both having any dealings with a Jewish entity, or even outright attack them, because their prophet told them to.

    You just can't reconcile supporting and pandering to muslim voters with classic liberalism. Labour needed to do something about this years ago, I could dig out the migration charts that show that Muslims in Western Europe have done a better job of driving out Jews than the Nazis did. You can barely find anyone who [would be stupid enough] to publicly identify as Jewish these days. Can find plenty of assholes wearing terrorist scarfs, e.g. Hamas who would like to physically attack them in the street just for their beliefs though. I bet there's a good few of those scarfs being proudly worn just on Alum Rock road right now.

    Please do that, I need a laugh.

    There are approximately 14-15 million Jews in the world today. The Nazis killed 6 million Jews, and "drove out" others. So you need to prove with your charts that Muslims who live in Western Europe have caused about half of the global Jewish population to move to other places.
