I know that some narcissists do that. (I would If I was a narc, would be highly effective)
Regarding an acquaintance. He is too pained to have empathy a lot of the time, when I see it, it is large and beautiful. But his iq is certainly high enough to fake this occasional times...
I have never once noticed any mirroring..
If you are friends with someone that has hurt him, he will not be able to tolerate it at all and cut you off.
Uh this is very difficult to know for sure. He has told me has been diagnosed with BPD. Can anyone think up any clever way to test it? Must be some.
How will a bpd react to being completely cut out of somenes life, non contact, how will a narcissist? Maybe thats a good test. But I dont want to hurt him just to test it... damn it. Any other ideas?
Others Strongly suspect AVPD (I won't argue) I strongly suspect ADHD-PI
