A very enlightening video on the emotion at the heart of narcissism : Envy.

I found this an extremely interesting video to watch.  It explained a lot to me, both about myself and about others.  In narcissism there is a swing between polarities of all good/grandiosity and all bad/devaluation which can then often be projected onto others.  It explained the relationship with my older sister and also explained other key relationships.  Most enlightening is how the narcissist will respond to the therapist by trying to devalue them.

  1. From the following list we can see that what we call ‘envy’ is an evolved, motivational mechanism:

    ‘Envy’ is universal among human societies
    ‘Envy’ is both excitable and compulsive
    The focus of ‘envy’ is generally a perceived rival of the same sex
    We observe other animal species to act in ways which in humans we would regard as ‘envious’ behaviour
    ‘Envious’ behaviour in humans directly corresponds with ways in which animal systems of competition and hierarchy operate

  2. I have been surfing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
