Another link for NPD...

Postby dygtolbert » Thu Mar 05, 2009 5:29 am

Hello,

I just joined, as I am married to an NPD. You've got a lot of great sites, but here's one that is a must. It is one site that is just as informative for mental health providers as it is for people who know or live with a NPD or even for the NPD person themselves. My husband found out about this site from a book he bought (he was recently diagnosed as NPD) called Malignant Self Love, by Sam Vaknin.

I hope this helps,

Donnie

As a warning to all those that see mental health matters at the top. It's full of Sam Vatniks ramblings. Steer clear of it for NPD issues. Or if you decide to go please remember his "doctorite" is from a degree mill, and in Philosophy.
Because here the victims become the monsters and need the help.

I thought I was the only one who found Sam's views as ramblings, his studies can give even a normal person a terrible complex as far as this mental health issue is concerned.

Anything written by Sam is a waste of time. He made some weird video some time ago, in which he made an ass out of himself.
Okay, I have a serious question. A bunch of the sites posted were for family/gf/etc, Sam=(not worth your time), and general stuff you could probably find just googling. I'm new and I've noticed that over 4/5ths of the threads follow similar trends. If you're the narc, and I am, what's in this site for you? There aren't any threads, posts, etc that actually cover HOW TO MANAGE this thing. Is there anything anywhere that actually covers this?

I like how all of the above posters discredit Sam.

His mental maps and "ramblings" actually make 100% sense to me. I can follow them and am constantly surprised at how accurate they are.

The difference between low and high functioning narcissists, self-awareness included.

Sam Vaknin is not a narcissist, his degree is fake, and much of what he says about himself is a lie.

These are all facts. They do not, however, change the fact that much of what he's written about narcissists is true and remarkably accurate. He's quite perceptive and you don't actually need a doctorate to understand people (especially since anyone competent enough to get a doctorate in a real field would never get one is psychiatry).

his links makes perfect sense to me, I just have trouble taking him at his word since he effectively discredited himself. Do any of you relate to what he states or is it just me?
