Malignant Narcissism

Just as all people display some necrophilic behavior, so too do all have some narcissistic tendencies. Healthy people manifest a benign form of narcissism, that is, an interest hi their own body. However, in its malignant form, narcissism hnpedes the perception of reality so that everything belonging to a narcissistic person is highly valued and everything belonging to another is devalued. Narcissistic individuals are preoccupied with themselves, but this concern is not lhnited to admiring themselves hi a mirror. Preoccupation with ones body often leads to hypochondriasis, or an obsessive attention to ones health. Fromm (1964) also discussed moral hypochondriasis, or a preoccupation with guilt about previous transgressions. People who are fixated on themselves are likely to internalize experiences and to dwell on both physical health and moral virtues. Narcissistic people possess what Horney (see Chapter 6) called neurotic claims. They achieve security by holding on to the distorted...

Courtship in the Pleistocene

Most media portrayals of prehistory follow one of three strategies eliminate sexual content entirely, 'show cave-women falling for adventure heroes who rescue them from peril, or offer a narcissistic sexual fantasy in which only the protagonist (usually male) exercises sexual choice. There seems to be no market for portrayals of our early ancestors exerting mutual choice. If we are to see all the genuine tensions and difficulties between the sexes, media producers assume we must be rewarded with a proper costume drama set in- Imperial Rome or Regency England. After all, could Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver keep a straight face playing an intense romantic psychodrama set in Pleistocene Zaire, while wearing mangy furs, with ochre-smeared hair, and covered in ticks

Levels of Personal Dispositions

Allport identified several historical people and fictional characters who possessed a disposition so outstanding that they have given our language a new word. Some examples of these cardinal dispositions include quixotic, chauvinistic, narcissistic, sadistic, a Don Juan, and so forth. Because personal dispositions are individual and are not shared with any other person, only Don Quixote was truly quixotic only Narcissus was completely narcissistic only the Marquis de Sade possessed the cardinal disposition of sadism. When these names are used to describe characteristics in others, they become common traits.

The End of Evolution As We Know It

Galton's hubris enacts the problematic tautology inherent to most notions of eugenics. Apparently men of genius determine the breeding of geniuses (or the Nazi version, superior races suppress inferior races). In other words, eugenics involves perpetuating the powerful as a kind of narcissistic program of immortality dressed as species improvement. Those in power presumably oversee the production of beings like those in power because the powerful (or the geniuses) are likely to define desirable qualities based on their own obvious superiority (itself based on their being in power). This is the selfish gene theory on a macro level.

The Demands of an Industrialized Economy

A solitary vice performed alone, it was condemned as antisocial and narcissistic. The self-absorbed masturbator was considered the exemplar of those who refused to contribute to the well-being of the nation (20,44,45). The idea of climbing the social and economic ladder that was held as ideal in the 19th century American society required the laboring classes to mimic the sexual self-control or sublimation that contributed to the success of the middle classes (46,47). The professional and gentlemanly class differentiated itself by adhering to the repressive demands of continence to fuel their economic prowess. In a similar vein, the moral-medical attacks on prostitution and nymphomania were justified by the argument that such practices were unproductive and bore no useful fruit (15). Thus, prostitution and the regulation of women's sexuality received major impetus from the consideration of sexuality in economic terms (48). The wastefulness inherent in the commerce with oneself or...

Research on Birth Order

Confirming Adler's prediction that first-borns have more difficulty than second-born children in pacing their work realistically, one study found first-born teachers more susceptible to teacher burnout (Forey, Christensen, & England, 1994). First-borns are also more often Type-A (time-pressured, coronary-prone) persons (Ivancevich, Matteson, & Gamble, 1987 Phillips, Long, & Bedeian, 1990 Strube & Ota, 1982). First-borns are reported to be higher in narcissism (self-absorption), which is consistent with Adler's negative portrayal of them (Curtis & Cowell, 1993 Joubert, 1989a). Research using a Knowing Styles Inventory suggests that first-borns more often adopt a Separate Knowing style in which they distance themselves from others' ideas, which they challenge and doubt, while later-born children scored higher on a Connected Knowing scale, suggesting that they take the perspective of others (Knight et al., 2000).

Externalization Projection of Inner Conflict

In the fourth major adjustment strategy, the neurotic projects inner conflicts onto the outside world, a process Horney called externalization. Externalization refers to the tendency to experience internal processes as if they occurred outside oneself and, as a rule, to hold these external factors responsible for one's difficulties (Horney, 1945, p. 115). It includes the defense mechanism of projection, as traditional psychoanalysis understands it, in which our own unacceptable tendencies (such as anger or sometimes ambition) are perceived as characteristic of other people but not ourselves. In one case study, for example, a woman was interpreted to have selected her ambitious but narcissistic husband because she could externalize onto him power, competence, and a capacity for success that she could not see in herself (Horwitz, 2001). This defensive choice by the self-effacing wife, combined with the husband's own expansive and narcissistic solution to conflict, led to considerable...

Longitudinal Studies of Attachment

Relational theorists also emphasize early parent-child relationships and their implications for a sense of self and for interpersonal relationships throughout life. Disturbances in object relationships contribute to many disorders, including narcissism, and to disturbed relationships in adulthood. In addition to contributors from psychoanalysis, developmental researchers investigating attachment have contributed to our understanding of object relations.

Margaret Mahlers View

Margaret Mahler Stages Development

To achieve psychological birth and individuation, a child proceeds through a series of three major developmental stages and four sub-stages (Mahler, 1967, 1972 Mahler. Pme, & Bergman, 1975). The first major developmental stage is normal autism, which spans the period from birth until about age 3 or 4 weeks. To describe the normal autism stage, Mahler (1967) borrowed Freud's (1911 1958) analogy that compared psychological birth with an unhatched bird egg. The bird is able to satisfy its nutritional needs autistically (without regard to external reality) because its food supply is enclosed in its shell. Similarly, a newborn infant satisfies various needs within the all-powerful protective orbit of a mother's care. Neonates have a sense of omnipotence, because, like unhatched birds, then needs are cared for automatically and without their having to expend any effort. Unlike Klein, who conceptualized a newborn infant as being terrified, Mahler pointed to the relatively long periods of...

Psychohistorical Study of Hitler

Fromm regarded Hitler as the world s most conspicuous example of a person with the syndrome of decay, possessing a combination of necrophilia, malignant narcissism, and incestuous symbiosis. Hitler displayed all tlnee pathological disorders. He was attracted to death and destruction narrowly focused on self-interests and driven by an incestuous devotion to the Germanic race, being fanatically dedicated to preventing its blood from being polluted by Jews and other non-Aryans. As a child, Hitler was somewhat spoiled by his mother, but her indulgence did not cause his later pathology. It did, however, foster narcissistic feelings of self-importance. Hitler s mother never became to him a person to whom he was lovingly or tenderly attached. She was a symbol of the protecting and admiring goddesses, but also of the goddess of death and chaos (Fromm, 1973, p. 378). Hitler was an above-average student in elementary school, but a failure in high school. During adolescence, he experienced some...

Important Persons in the History of the Relational Approach

Borderline and psychotic patients suffer disturbed identity and interpersonal relationships. Early severe frustration leads to unmanageable aggression and narcissistic personality disorders. Especially in borderline personality disorder, narcissistic frustrations lead to a splitting of the good and bad self and object relations, which are kept isolated from one another, and a grandiose self is defensively formed.

FeSense of Self in Relationships

Whether we develop a sense of self through relationships (as many current theorists, including relational theorists, believe), or whether the sense of self comes first and relationships follow (as Freud proposed), in either case too much focus on the self gets in the way of healthy relationships. An unhealthy self-focus and self-admiration constitutes narcissism. In less than one in a hundred people, narcissism is severe and impairs the person so much that it can be diagnosed as a mental disorder, narcissistic personality disorder (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). People who suffer from this disorder are extremely self-focused they don't have much empathy for other people's experience. Their sense of being special, that they deserve attention and admiration, leads them to use other people as admiring audiences and supporters, instead of as separate individuals. Narcissistic students tend to overestimate the grades they will receive (Far- well & Wohlwend-Lloyd, 1998). When...

Whole Human Clones

Any endeavor to generate cloned babies runs counter to strong public sentiment and against the edicts of many agencies and governments around the world. Many people view human cloning as ethically repugnant, going against nature's or God's design by undermining our deep-rooted values of individuality, uniqueness, and personal worth. Human cloning often has been portrayed as a means for rich or narcissistic individuals to make copies of themselves or for unscrupulous dictators to produce brigades of identical jackbooted soldiers. Most animal-cloning experts are revolted by the prospects of human reproductive cloning, and also point out medical dangers associated with the process. As emphasized repeatedly by Ian Wilmut, inventor of farm-animal cloning, 276 failures accompanied the production of Dolly the sheep, and washout rates at least this high can be expected in any initial human-cloning effort. Opponents of reproductive cloning contend that because each aborted outcome leaves...

Drives

Sex can take many forms, including narcissism, love, sadism, and masochism. The latter two also possess generous components of the aggressive drive. Infants are primarily self-centered, with their libido invested almost exclusively on their own ego. This condition, which is universal, is known as primary narcissism. As the ego develops, children usually give up much of their primary narcissism and develop a greater interest in other people. In Freud's language, narcissistic libido is then transformed into object libido. During puberty, however, adolescents often redirect their libido back to the ego and become preoccupied with personal appearance and other self-interests. This pronounced secondary narcissism is not universal, but a moderate degree of self-love is common to nearly everyone (Freud, 1914 1957). Obviously, love and narcissism are closely interrelated. Narcissism involves love of self, whereas love is often accompanied by narcissistic tendencies, as when people love...

Related Research

Early research by Ryckman and colleagues (Ryckman et al., 1990 Ryckman, Thornton, & Butler, 1994) found strong support for Horney's theory of neurosis and hypercompetitiveness that is, they found that the hypercompetitive person was more likely to be narcissistic, manipulative, and neurotic and to have low self-esteem.

Social Interest

Although not all measures of social interest yield the same results, several studies confirm theoretical predictions. People who score high on social interest score low on narcissism (Miller, Smith, Wilkinson, & Tobacyk, 1987), low on alienation (Leak & Williams, 1989), and low on MMPI scales that indicate maladjustment (Mozdzierz, Greenblatt, & Murphy, 1988). They score high on the Affiliation, Nurturance, and Aggression scales of the Personality Research Form and on scales of the Life Styles Inventory thought to be associated with self-actualization (Leak, Millard, Perry, & Williams, 1985). Students high in social interest have attitudes toward love that emphasize companionship ( storge ) and reject egocentric game playing ( ludus ) (Leak & Gardner, 1990). Some studies report that measures of social interest correlate with prosocial behaviors volunteering in legal advocacy agencies (but not other kinds) (Hettman & Jenkins, 1990) and having more friends (Watkins & Hector, 1990).

The Genital Stage

In contrast to the autoerotic and fantasy sexual objects of the phallic child, the genital adult develops the capacity to experience sexual satisfaction with an opposite-sex object. The genital character is Freud's ideal of full development. It develops if fixations have been avoided or if they have been resolved through psychoanalysis. Such a person has no significant pre-Oedipal conflicts enjoys a satisfying sexuality and cares about the satisfaction of the love partner, avoiding selfish narcissism. Sublimated psychic energy is available for work, which brings enjoyment.
