An outstanding editorial
an excellent answer
The diagnosis doesn't really fit. Obama doesn't exhibit the sexual promiscuity common to narcissists, he doesn't get angry when he doesn't get attention - in fact, he doesn't get angry even when he should get angry. Bill Clinton comes closer, though most of us have a narcissistic streak.
He published two autobiographies before he turned 45. Can you get any more narcissistic than that?
It's the Daily Mail.
The author clearly is not well versed in science. It's not "proven", it's "suggests", and a sole study of 150 people in Amsterdam, apparently not peer-reviewed, and not even published yet, so she has not read it.
She has taken all her info from the press release. That's worse than students copying from Wikipedia.
Not saying that it's not true, just that as a source, that author and the Mail suck ass. It's not even a surprising suggestion. Seems like an extension or a variation of Dunning-Kruger. So what's the point in shoehorning Obama into this? It's so general that it can apply to pretty much anyone in a position of leadership that has ever screwed up.
Do comments work here anymore?
Commenting on 1gm is now problematic. I signed in to Movable type (it thanks me for having signed in). I try to comment in the blog and I get the "your comments have gone to the blog owner" response - and my commnet never appears. So I come to the Forum and leave a test comment, and it accepted it. In the Forum I can never directly sign in to Movable type, but instead have always had to go to the blog to sign in and then I can return to the Forum to comment. Sigh...
