The subject of this Blog, Annest Namata has a Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). This is a personality disorder in which the individual is described as being excessively pre-occupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity.
Narcissism is a term used to describe a focus on the self and self-admiration that is taken to an extreme. The word “narcissism” comes from a Greek myth in which a handsome young man named Narcissus sees his reflection in a pool of water and falls in love with it.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder as is clearly exhibited by Annest which involves her excessive arrogant behaviour, a lack of empathy for other people, and a constant need for admiration-all of which must be consistently evident at work and in any relationships. Annest is aimlesslessly cocky, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. Narcissists like her concentrate on unlikely personal outcomes (e.g., fame) and she is convinced that she deserves special treatment. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of mirrors which I evidently observed about her right from the start of the relationship but ignored it as a small thing but it clearly was not. It is a clearly magnified problem.
Annest the Narcissist appears to have high self-esteem on the surface, but deep down she is very insecure. This is something she has had since she was young. She was deprived of emotions and that goes to explain why she is remorseless, uses and exploits people.
Developmental factors that contribute to teen narcissistic personality disorder:
- Excessive admiration that does not receive a balance of realistic feedback** That explains why she thinks the comments she gets on Facebook when she flaunts herself are genuine.
- Over-indulgence from parents
- Parents over-praise and value as a way to increase their own self-esteem
- Severe childhood emotional abuse**
- Over-sensitive temperament from birth
- Unreliable or unpredictable care giving from parents**
- Learned manipulative behaviours from other sources****
Narcissistic personality disorder is one of a group of conditions called Dramatic Personality Disorders. For those who know Annest Namata, know that she is constantly full of drama which she creates everywhere she goes.
Annest Namata with her type of disorder has intense, unstable emotions and a very deceiving distorted self-image. Narcissistic personality disorder is further characterized by an abnormal love of self, an exaggerated sense of superiority and importance, and a pre-occupation with success and power.
