    He reminds me of an ENFP I dated in college who so desperately wanted to be an ENTP, and who just came across as, well, what we see here today.
    Yes, this is part of what I see as narcissism though - he wants to be treated with exquisite deference and respect, but at the same time say hideous things about other people.

    There is another person on this site who I consider to be a narcissist (in fact, a much worse case) who does similar things.

    No.

    You're either trolling, just messing with all of us, or being a petulant LOOK-AT-ME teenager.

    In any case though: No.

    That's true, isn't it. I guess maybe high self-esteem without putting others down would be more related to internally validated self-confidence then. So then the negative kind of self-esteem, and probably the one I see more often, is when people need to put others down to feel a security of externally validated self-confidence by being above others? Does this sound right?

    To function in this world with other people, I suppose we would have a certain degree of both, so this might be a good distinction between healthy narcissism and unhealthy narcissism when the externally validated self-confidence becomes of utmost importance to a person.

    I think it sounds good, at the moment, anyway.

    WHERE DO YOU COME UP WITH THIS STUFF? DO YOU KNOW ANY PIMPS IN REAL LIFE???? THEY'RE NOT LIKE IN THE MOVIES.

    No one hopes for Elfboy. We only are hoping for our threads and ourselves.

    (Hmmm.. that sounded a bit Victorish.)

    Come on, now, you know street pimps have all of these wonderful traits. They are all magnificently intelligent and have successful mindsets. Also always very sane and not at all ever addicted to hard drugs.

    However, I must say that "willingness to pamper oneself" and "powerful" made me LMFAO the most.

    It's also hilarious that he thinks they always put money before sex. He needs to apply positive pimp traits to himself. Elfboy wants to be a pimp.

    I don't think Elfboy is a narcissist, afterall. I think he suffers from some kind of delusional disorder.

    you may find my interests childish, and for the most part, you're right, but you are very perceptive to not mistake childish interests for childish understanding. despite recently keeping in on a leash, I have done terrible things with this ability tat would land most people in jail, and have done so more than once. granted, the times are few and far between, but I can be much more manipulative than I am comfortable admitting. I don't hang people, I give them the rope and they hang themselves. the tongue is mightier than the sword. perhaps it is because you intuitively grasped this darker side of me, along with my apparent lack of guilt that I find your comments amusing.

    Edit: on second thought, this sounds much closer to anti social personality disorder than narcissistic personality disorder. my problem is not my temper or desire for admiration, it's my willingness to go to any lengths to get what I want
    Oh, yes. This is just lovely and inspiring. You should go down there and speak with those pimps. Show them how much you can understand them on a deep level. Talk to them. Learn more about how they got to their powerful and successful positions in life. Maybe even do a brunch and video the interview! And then come back here and tell us about your experiences. (Show us the video, even better.)
