  • Taming The Beast: Pathological Narcissism And The Quality Of Life - 1,174 words
    ter>Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites Part 1 Many textbooks (and many patients ...) claim that the psychodynamic therapies when applied to personality disorders are ineffective. Functional (cognitive, behavioral) treatments should be preferred in certain cases and regarding certain aspects of the disorder. To a Narcissist, I would recommend a beavioral-cognitive-functional and less protracted type of therapy. (1) Know and accept thyself. This is what you are. You are highly intelligent. You are very inquisitive. You are a Narcissist. These are facts. Narcissism is an adaptive mechanism. It is dysfunctional - but it saves you from a LOT MORE dysfunct ...

  • On Narcissism: Psychological Theories And Therapeutic Interventions In The Narcissistic Disorders - 1,359 words
    Introduction Understanding the Narcissistic Phenomenon The so called 'narcissistic personality disorder' is a complex and often misunderstood disorder. The cardinal feature of the narcissistic personality is the grandiose sense of self importance, but paradoxically underneath this grandiosity the narcissist suffers from a chronically fragile low self esteem. The grandiosity of the narcissist, however, is often so pervasive that we tend to dehumanize him or her. The narcissist conjures in us images of the mythological character Narcissus who could only love himself, rebuffing anyone who attempted to touch him. Nevertheless, it is the underlying sense of inferiority which is the real problem o ...

  • On Narcissism: Psychological Theories And Therapeutic Interventions In The Narcissistic Disorders - 1,444 words
    ... the challenges of this stage will sustain a narcissistic injury. In essence the narcissistic injury will occur whenever the environment (in particular significant others) needs the individual to be something which he or she is not. The narcissistically injured individual is thus told "Don't be who you are, be who I need you to be. Who you are disappoints me, threatens me angers me, overstimulates me. Be what I want and I will love you" (Johnson, 1987; P. 39). The narcissistic injury devastates the individual's emerging self. Unable to be what he or she truly is the narcissistically injured person adapts by splitting his personality into what Kohut terms the nuclear (real) self and the fa ...

  • Inventing Love In The Faerie Queen - 622 words
    As we have discussed in class, there are several different types of love. And in identifying the perils of inventing love in The Faerie Queen, many of these kinds of love can be related. In addition to the romantic love that Spencer and the Redcrosse Knight invent, one also must consider the love for faith and God. Throughout the book, most of the problems that Spencer and the Redcrosse night with inventing love stem from the fact that they are doing it in a physical sense. The Knights service to a lady can be looked at as nothing more than submission to her desires. There is always a hidden anxiety inside in proving oneself to be a worthy knight, driven by male ego. His lady sad to see his ...

  • The Picture Of Dorian Gray - 820 words
    The myth of Narcissus is a good illustration of the damage that total self love can do to a person. There is a misconception about narcissistic people. This confusion is the belief that narcissistic people are in love with themselves, but according to the DSM lll criteria published in 1989, the narcissus is not in love with himself, but in fact in love with his reflection. This does not mean that a narcissus has no love for others, but it is miss-directed love. They get their love identity from the love of the image they portray to others. In the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Dorian Gray is the protagonist who is narcissistic. Dorian Gary is in many ways a modern retelli ...

  • The Real Possibilities Of Cloning - 1,215 words
    On February 22, 1999 news was announced that Dolly the lamb was the first successful animal cloned. Unlike the other cloning experiments done over the past 15 years, this was the first successful clone made with an adult cell. The cell was used to activate and program the egg from which Dolly grew. Past clones involved using the cell from a fertilized embryo in the early stages of development. As news of Ian Willmut's cloned lamb got out across the globe, many people feared what they thought could possibly never come true. With the technology to clone identical animals, can humans be cloned too? Since then topic of discussion throughout the scientific world has centered on the cloning of hum ...

  • Decnstruction Of Barcardi Advertiesmetnes - 1,492 words
    It seems like everywhere you turn these days there is some beer or hard alcohol advertisement showing up in magazines or on television carrying promises of success and eternal happiness if you use their product. While flipping through several magazines I came upon a series of ads for Bacardi Rum. In the ads a bunch of happy go lucky twenty somethings are shown partying enjoying various drinks in a club environment. In each ad there is a catchy little slogan tailored especially for the situation running across the bottom of the page such as: Cubicles by day. Bacardi by night, Trading floor by day. Bacardi by night., and Buttoned up by day. Bacardi by night. While many might dismiss these ads ...

  • Fredian - 1,253 words
    we have organic disease versus the symptom complex of neurosis with no physical determinants, but rather we must look for the underlying conflicts ascertained by "talking through" psychotherapy. How do you apply this to a collectivity like a nation? Is there a national character in which invariably a nation follows a pre-selected pattern of inherited behavior? For instance, are the Germans warlike, the Russians passive, and the Americans beneficent? 2. Or must we look to an interdisciplinary approach to assess group dynamics? Does Freud help? While there is a definition of normality for the individual, there is no such standard in judging nation-states or even various cultures. Ethnology is ...

  • The Search For The Illusion Of Love - 879 words
    Its existence has been questioned no less than that of God, truth, and the limit to our universe. It has no textbook definition, because, like cold temperature, nobody has yet been able to agree on a concrete meaning of it. It is the key topic of countless songs, poems, books, works of art, plays, movies, and quarrels; and yet, we dont even know if it exists. Nevertheless, when asked, most people will say that they have experienced the unidentifiable feeling of love. Many people will agree that our need to be loved is just as basic and important as our need for water, food, and shelter. A human being can go without water for hardly more than a day, and food for a few days before he meets the ...

  • Beowulf As The Bad Guy - 1,007 words
    Beowulf is portrayed as the hero of the epic poem Beowulf (c1200), although he is in reality the villain. Throughout the poem the poet, who is unknown, believes Beowulf to be a hero because of his strength and loyalty to his people. However, his pursuit for heroic status was so dominating that it motivated his jealousy, selfishness and greed. Beowulf is a tale about a boastful soldier whose motive in life is purely self-beneficial; he exploits the vulnerability of Grendel, Grendels mother and eventually the dragon to gain fame, money and power. Beowulf is a typical primitive whose evil actions brought him recognition and immortality, he is a product of the society that the poet lives. Beowul ...

  • Heart Of Carkness - 1,298 words
    HTML1DocumentEncodingutf-8"Mistah" Kurtz, in Heart of Darkness, is one of Korzeniowski's revenants: "He rose, unsteady, long, pale, indistinct like a vapour exhaled by the earth, and swayed slightly, misty and silent before me" (64). Kurtz originates in the "misseds" of time--after the brief attack by the natives, Marlow concludes that Kurtz is now missing-- "vanished"--and confesses, in his most intimate moment, that his sorrow at this thought "had a startling extravagance of emotion." Seized with "lonely desolation," he feels as if he had "been robbed of a belief or had missed [his] destiny in life" (48). This sense of lack helps us understand why Conrad's Marlow "was anxious to deal with ...

  • Narcissus - 578 words
    Is our negative branding of narcissism a defense against a demanding call of the soul to be loved? Narcissism is the egotistic sense of self-importance, but paradoxically underneath this attitude, the narcissist is simply a victim of a fragile low self-esteem. It is the underlying sense of inferiority that is the real problem of the narcissist, and their pretense is just a disguise used to cover their deeper feelings of inadequacy. Since narcissists are often incapable of asserting genuine self-meaning, they seek admiration from others because they desire acceptance and approval (as we all do) but lack the ability to find any from within. In looking at the story of Narcissus, I was so inspir ...

  • Song Of The Unsung Antihero - 2,676 words
    Abstract: The sober treatment of a lowly, unheroic protagonist in Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman flatters the audience. The more obvious way that it flatters us is by alienating us from the protagonist in his downfall so that we watch his destruction from a secure vantage. Less obviously, the form of the play, typical of modern American tragedy, romanticizes the protagonist through what I call the audience's paradox, that tension created when a serious work of literature employs an obscure and lowly character as protagonist and so makes him the center of our attention, makes him famous. Many nineteenth and twentieth century writers seek to convey the experience of a lowly character chaf ...

    ... of poverties, that greatest of indignities, death. In a less extreme form we have in Death the same technique that makes the formulaic horror movie ultimately so reassuring. In such movies, all but one or two characters are obviously victims, idiots who insist on backing into dusty, cobwebbed rooms while a heavy-handed score positively shouts warning. While these obvious victims are dropping like flies, the audience is encouraged to identify principally with the common-sensical hero who is marked from the beginning as a survivor. Happily, Miller rejects this emotional gimmick through the bulk of the play, drawing us into the foolish Willy Loman's psyche through a variety of experimental ...

  • Religion - 1,740 words
    Everyone has felt somewhat out of place at one point or another in his or her life. How does one feel when he or she has no one to turn to? Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Rappaccini's Daughter" are both works that give the reader a chance to observe how individuals feel and act when they are placed in an isolated position. Mary Shelly's Frankenstein is a book about a creature that is alienated from society due to his repulsive outward appearance, and Hawthorne's story gives the account of a beautiful lady who cannot have social acquaintances because of her fatal physical qualities. Frankenstein's creature's isolation is turned into rage, while Beatrice, Rappaccini's d ...

  • Cho Personality Disorder - 1,743 words
    The term Echo Personality Disorder was coined by British Psychosynthesis practitioner Patrick Hurst, as a replacement term for 'Inverted Narcissism' and 'Covert Narcissism' which later terms place unwarranted emphasis on narcissistic qualities of the personality, which in many of these individuals may not be a feature at all. EPD is a highly differentiated form of Dependent Personality Disorder, marked by behaviours of compliance and a need to 'mirror' significant others -parents, spouse, friends, employer. Individuals with EPD may be attracted to relationships with individuals showing marked narcissistic traits -people who need to be mirrored or praised- though this in no way forms a "stand ...

  • Stalkers - 699 words
    Youre walking home, you think someone is behind you but when you turn to check, nobody is there. Is this just paranoia playing games with your head? Or is there really someone behind you? Stalking isnt really something any of us need to worry about as teens, but there could be some valuable information in the proceedings of this speech. Today we are going to profile three different types of stalkers. Before we begin the profiling section, I thought it would help you to better understand a stalker if I gave the definition of one. Lets take a look into the Marian Webster Dictionary to check it out. Stalker One who walks swiftly and haughtily in pursuit of prey. Hmm, very interesting. This mea ...

  • Oedipus Rex: Classic Tragic Hero - 901 words
    In the play Oedipus Rex by Sophocles, Oedipus is a classic tragic hero. According to Aristotle's definition, Oedipus is a tragic hero because he is a king whose life falls apart when he finds out his life story. There are a number of characteristics described by Aristotle that identify a tragic hero. For example, a tragic hero must cause his own downfall; his fate is not deserved, and his punishment exceeds the crime; he also must be of noble stature and have greatness. Oedipus is in love with his idealized self, but neither the grandiose nor the depressive "Narcissus" can really love himself (Miller 67). All of the above characteristics make Oedipus a tragic hero according to Aristotle's id ...

  • Saddam Hussein: The U.s Portrayal Of Evil Encarnate - 1,474 words
    When Iraq invaded and occupied the country of Kuwait in August 1990, the Bush administration was faced with several dilemmas. From a foreign policy point of view, this action could greatly destabilize the balance of power in a part of the world that was vital to U.S. interests. The United States was dependant on a continuous flow of oil to drive its economic machine, which Kuwait supplied greatly. In addition, this move would put more power into the hands of a government that was not only unfriendly to the U.S., but a sworn enemy of the state of Israel, a strong U.S. ally. In addition to, the fall of communism had created what George Bush had described as, A new world order, and would become ...
