How Do You Tell a Narcissist That They Didn't Win?



The study used previous research that involved assessing grandiose narcissism personality scores for each president from George Washington to George W. Bush, based on the judgments of 177 historians. According to this analysis, Theodore Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson scored very high on grandiose self-admiration, while Grover Cleveland and James Monroe scored very low.

The authors investigated a particular form of vanity, "grandiose narcissism," which typically describes the kind of person convinced of their general wonderfulness, but to the extreme extent of becoming aggressive and dominant with attention-seeking acts.

Because narcissists are devoted to acquiring leadership, fame, and wealth, losing power and status will lead them to feel more totally empty, whereas the less self-absorbed can adjust to a relatively more anonymous life after the presidency, and accept more gracefully that it is someone else’s turn to take the top job.

As narcissists display heightened self-importance and entitlement to special treatment, it makes sense for them to believe losing means a contest has been rigged against them, simply because they are not winning. This could explain why they may not feel the need to provide any further evidence of cheating against them. The mere fact of trailing becomes confirmation of an antagonistic conspiracy.

Trump's narcissistic rage is a clear and present danger to the republic.


Despite all his rage, he'a still just a rat in a cage.

3. "You lost. Go home."

And if he takes a swing, you punch his lights out, so he doesn't do it again.

Had one person done that at any time ....

4. Very Disappointing After the Hoopla to Have No Narcissism Ranking of yam

Hard to believe he wouldn't be the superstar for perhaps the first time ever.

Many years ago I subscribed to Psych Today, or at least a similar pub. Very discouraging how poorly edited this article is. But I find that true of most on-line and even print stuff these days. Re-read your words and correct! Is it so freaking urgent that you can't be bothered? There's really little excuse in any case for sloppy language and punctuation, but in a publication where they probably pay for multiple cycles of checking, this is wholly inexcusable.
