1. Narcissistic Has a sense of entitlement
The world owes the Narcissistic everything; he, in revolve, owes it nothing.I think Trump’s attitude can be summarized with this approach to marriage: “I wish I’d had aspecial marriage.
2. An exaggerated sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
Witness Trump’s announcement that, “When people see the beautiful marble in Trump Tower, they usually have no idea what I went through personally to attain the end result. No one cares about the blood, sweat, and tears that art or beauty require.
3. Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love
How many presidential runs does it take for the process to be defined as a preoccupation rather than an occupation?\I’d leave it at that, except for the existence of this little gem: “My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body.”
4. Believes he is “special” and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)
To Narcissistic, the “little people” or anyone beneath them (which is mostly everyone) don’t matter. Trump’s lambasting of Rosie O’Donnell is a good case in point: “Rosie O’Donnell called me a snake oil salesman. And, you know, coming from Rosie, that’s pretty low because when you look at her and when you see the mind, the mind is weak.
5-Requires excessive admiration
No matter the sincerity, as long as the praise comes frequently and at a high enough volume. Says Trump, “All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.” Clearly. Admired, wherever he may go, even when he’s talking about himself in the third person, as in, “Love him or hate him, Trump is a man who is certain about what he wants and sets out to get it, no holds barred. Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money.”
6.Selfishly takes advantage of others to achieve his own ends
I don’t have a quote for this one, but perhaps we can talk to one of his ex-wives.
7. Lacks empathy
Narcissistic don’t sympathize with the feelings of others. Who are these “others,” anyway? No one matters except for me.
8. Is often envious of others or believes others to be envious of him
Here, it seems like Trump is dominated by the second sentiment, the expectation that everyone is envious of his success. Everyone wants to be Trump. As he puts it, “The old rich may look down their noses at me, but I think they kiss my ass.”
9. Shows arrogant, haughty, patronizing, or contemptuous behaviors or attitudes
They can be treated like nothing, because who are we kidding – nothing is the closest description of what they are.
