  • value from O.Fr. value"worth, value" pp. Of valoir "be worth," from L. valere "be strong, be well, be of value"
  • worth O.E. weorš "equal in value to," from P.Gmc. *werthaz toward, opposite, hence equivalent, worth" (cf. O.Fris. werth, o.N. veršr, du. waard, o.H.G. werd, Ger. wert, Goth. wairžs "worth, worthy" )

The modern personality disorder category of narcissism is distinguished by fiercely autocratic decision-making, and inability to form emotional bonds due to a severe lack of empathy.

Narcissists treat people as if they were things. Their behavior is distinguished by acts of uncaring cruelty . They suffer from violent temper and are Generally, incapable of admitting any type of wrongdoing.

In their childhoods, even a small infraction caused the mother to completely withdraw her love (to the point that she would refuse to recognize the child = "you bring shame upon me; you don't exist" ). Surviving these attacks of severe psychological invalidation from the Mother requires building a shell of inflated 'specialness' and complete denial of any possible blame.

Adult narcissists survive by absolute and consistent denial of any possibility that they may have committed any crime, large or small, including murder. In their surface mind, they are perfect. However, in their deeper hidden emotional chamber, they are terrified of rejection and self-hating. Their extreme lack of empathy allows the narcissist to commit crimes of the most heinous type. But since they lack conscience, their belief in their own righteousness is impenetrable .

Narcissists are psychologically shaped by their shame-fearing mothers. Driven by a deep shame about their social status (usually some form of illegitimacy) these mothers overcompensate by raising "perfect" children. The mother hyper-praises her children for normal, conventional behaviors, telling the kids that they are extraordinary, special, remarkable, better than others.

The other half of the narcissist-making recipe is sudden "freeze-out" withdrawal of maternal love. Because the mother's terror of shame is so easily triggered, even small infractions by the child are met with a sudden and intense withdrawal of affection. The child grows up in a state of over-praise and over-criticism, which leads to a bloated ego-membrane covering a toxic, self-hating soul.

The children of this mother who must avoid humiliation at all costs tend as adults to lack friends. The narcissist acts autonomously. He trusts no one except the siblings, who have the same inner terror and who form a self-referential extension of one's own inner truth. As adults narcissists typically maintain strong (while competitive) bonds with siblings of the same gender from the same mother.

  • A female narcissist keeps tightly competitive and often obsessive relationships with her sisters but has no other real friends due to terror of rejection for impurity.
  • A male narcissist keeps tightly competitive and often obsessive relationships with his brothers but can form no other friendships due to terror of rejection.

Narcissists are not sociopaths (normally) nor are they paranoid or schizophrenic or other diagnosis. Due to their deeply festering (but tightly covered) self-hatred, naarcissism is often"co-morbid" with self-polluting practices such as alcoholism or sexual addictions.

Husbandly-companions may become addicted to sex, rage, drugs and over-budget expensive displays of treasury . Feminine Nativities may becomeaddicted to self-purification or physical perfecting practices such as obsessive hatha yoga, purging or extreme fasting, over-budget expensive clothes, and cosmetic surgeries.

Living free of the normal anti-criminal conscience imposed by empathy for fellow humans, naarcissists often rise to the heights of material power

Notorious narcissists


Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro [Rahu in bhava-12] in 10th-from-Chandra * ambition for heroic leadership

  • shamefully illegitimate son of teenage kitchen-maid. Castro was born on his married father's estate. FC functioned as an extreme autocrat; showing no qualms about massive imprisonment, widespread poverty, and misery among his people (Ketu-6.unconcerned with suffering). Closed his nation's economy for control purposes (Aśleṣa) Citizens subsist in dire poverty, while living 100 miles from the richest nation in the world. Maintains a very close lifetime bond with his brother Rahul, who is effectively an extension of himself. Passes the dictatorship to Rahul.

Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin "Man of Steel" . [Rahu-Makara-Draco] [[Rahu in bhava-10] [Shani-12 parivartamsha Guru-10-nīcha] Rahu in 9th-from-Chandra ideology, doctrine, marxist eschatological belief

  • Raised in shame as the son of a dirty serf mother, and brutally beaten by her abusively violent husband. His three siblings who died in childhood were possibly beaten to death. Soso needed to be strong. He abandoned seminary in search of absolute material power. Estimated 20 million murdered in his prison systems. Millions more died from government-ordered famine, and millions more in bloody battles he directed from his fortress, the Kremlin. Unlike Castro, stalin had no surviving siblings. Lacking a self-referential sibling to buffer his narcissistic pollution, he became a pure autocrat with zero empathy and a colossal agent of world terror.

Russ-Empress 1729-1796 Noble Maidens Catherine the Great. [Rahu in bhava-10] * Ghataka Kala-Sarpa Yoga

  • Likely an earlier incarnation of Stalin. Daughter of a notoriously controlling but emotionally cold mother who greatly preferred her son. (Mother may have suffered from borderline personality disorder. Mother alternately praised young Catherine for cultural accomplishments that increased royal marriageability while criticizing and invalidating her as ugly, misshapen, and disgustingly female. Thus a female narcissistic is born. Yekaterina's narcissism is confirmed by her easy willingness to poison, strangle, and exterminate her political enemies - including former lovers and fathers of her children - as well as her long-lasting, iron-grip autocratic rule of Russia.
Apple Computer 1955-2011 Steve Jobs [mercantile-communicating Mūla-3] [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] [9, principled beliefs]
  • SPJ = hailed as a creative innovator [Aśvini-born]. The general public admired him as a tireless evangelist for a brilliant new electronic-communications technology [Guru-Ketu 3-Mithuna evangelism]. SPJ is recognized as helping to usher-in a new phase of electronic-defined civilization. Yet many who worked and lived closely with SPJ experienced him as a relentlessly driven self-promoter, unable to share creative credit + lacking empathy.
  • For example, sPJ notoriously parked in handicapped-reserved spaces, and refused to move when challenged [Surya-Kumbha]. Despite his billionaire rank, sPJ disavowed charitable giving. SPJ refused to pay child-support for his disavowed eldest daughter, leaving her and her mother [his long-term girlfriend] to live in poverty while he earned millions. [When the daughter reached school-age, acourt judgement legally forced SPJ to make the long-refused payments.]
  • Narcissists curry favor with those of higher status, who may seem to hold the most desirable [Rahu] social privileges. Narcissists may display inspirational genius, professional excellence, and intellectual skill. However, naPD are focused upward, upon the glory which promises to medicate their inner shame. Narcissists rarely express concern - and usually express contempt - toward those below them.
