Do many narcissists personify their pets?
My MIL is a N, and she had SUCH disdain for animals. She once spent thousands of dollars on a trained German Shepherd in order for him to protect her at her business. S…he literally kept him locked in a closet with minimal food for a week before my husband convinced her to return him to the previous owner. She thought his existence was to live in the dark and not bother her until a robber appeared, and then she would open the closet door and he would attack. Another example: my husband had a dog when he was a child that he really loved. He got off the bus from school just in time to see his dog riding in the back seat of a car, staring at him through the window as he rode away. My poor young husband ran into the house to find out that his mother had given the dog away to seal the deal in a retail sale at her business. But when her latest boyfriend was going out of town on business, he was considering having his ex-girlfriend watch his dog. When the N found out about this possible loss of attention, she immediately said she would watch the dog and LOVED animals. A day after her boyfriend had left town, she called hubby and I to get the number for the nearest kennel. The 5 lb dog had become such an inconvenience because it had it's collar stuck in it's mouth! When we arrived, the dog was locked in a small area covered in urine. We brought it home with us and kept it until the owner came back. Easiest dog in the world. In my experience, N's don't care about anything or anyone unless they suit a purpose. They are best described as evil from head to toe. When my N lived with me, he doted on my three cats, and even took a special liking to the oldest one. He carried her everywhere and even slept with her. He used to put the cat right in the middle of us. (Now I know he did this so he wouldn't have to be so close to me, but that's another story...) When I was in the process of throwing this guy out of my house, he flew into a rage at the cats when they got in his way. I barely managed to move the cats to a safe room where he wouldn't hurt them. I was horrified that he could do that. I started to wonder if he treated the cats that way when I wasn't around.I don't believe N's have empathy for animals OR people. I believe that they may derive some Narcissistic supply even from the adoration of an animal, but that may be as far as it goes. This is just my experience. Answer My N ex loved his two dogs. One peed all over the house, and the other was a pain as well. His whole life revolved around those dogs. Every little thing he did revolved around the dogs eating, sleeping, even our whole summer was decided by one of his dogs trying to break down the basement door....we never slept that summer because of his dogs. We argued constantly. My cat, though, had to stay locked up in a certain part of the house. He hated cats. I heard that somewhere that they don't like cats because they can't control them.....makes sense.
Someone who worships him or her self. everything revols around you, everythign you do is for your own good and use Narcissism is the practice of displaying (among others);- gr…andiosity (superiority,) entitlement, competitiveness and envy, lack of empathy (understanding and considering others,) shallow affect (vague or superficial feelings and emotions,) Lack of insight or self-awareness (never considers that attitudes/behaviour may be unhealthy to self or others,) Poor impulse control (cannot resist urges especially destructive ones and especially when angry,) manipulative behaviour. When these behaviours go to extremes (and are displayed over a significat period of time) a medical diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) may be made. Many people may display some (or all) of these traits without having the disorder, on fact most of us display these from time to time. It is logical to say that the more of these traits displayed and the more frequently they are displayed then the more narcissitic that person may be.
somebody who has the following symptoms Reacting to criticism with anger, shame, or humiliation Taking advantage of others to reach own goals Exaggerating own import…ance, achievements, and talents Imagining unrealistic fantasies of success, beauty, power, intelligence, or romance Requiring constant attention and positive reinforcement from others Becoming jealous easily Lacking empathy and disregarding the feelings of others Being obsessed with self Pursuing mainly selfish goals Trouble keeping healthy relationships Becoming easily hurt and rejected Setting goals that are unrealistic Wanting "the best" of everything Appearing unemotional
Absolutely not! This is not neccessarily true. My ex gf who is a Nar. Lives on a ranch. She is an animal lover. Many times Narcissists can get their "supply" from other sourc…es not just human. where she lives is a bit out in the boonies so to speak so she doesn't have alot of resources to find new supply easily. She treats her animals incredibly well. She charms them as she would a person. And brags how much her animals love her and they do. She had a chyuaua dog? not sure how to spell it. When she passed away, my ex lost it! Literally! Instead of grieving she ran out immediately and replaced her with another. She takes this dog everywhere with her and the dog has separation anxiety because of this. SO it really depends on how u have seen them interact with pets in the past. I have read alot about Narcissits on the web. And when I see answers to some questions that are oneway, black or white. its not neccesarly true. Remember Although Naracists have alot of the same traits they r individuals and can be different in some ways. From the way I see things, and have read and from experience, Narcissts r mostly emotionally and mentally abusive. And can be very different around friends as apposed to an intimate relationship. They do need admiration of any kind. SO they don't want to look bad in the public eye. To her friends, she is a "good deed doer" this is one thing that lured me in. I saw how she was with her friends and how much they idolized her I thought wow, she must really be a great person to have so many people who love her. But they can be 2 different people,Jekyl and hide. I'm not saying the can't be physically abusive I have no idea I am talking from my experience. I don't agree that ALL narcists cant be trusted with pets. My advice is go with ur instincts. if ur questioning it u must have good reason.

Yep - mine started out calling me "Belle" and other sweet names...as the abuse and the years wore on, the names turned to things like "Trampy". When he would use my real… name, it usually involved a severe sarcastic inflection such that he sounded like he was making fun of my name. He stopped using the nicknames when he started up a new relationship with a woman he knew from his hometown. He became very cold and uninterested in me at that point, except when I looked "hot" (his description) and then he would come on to me for sex, get it, and then turn cold again after. That was real fun.
yes, i dont see why not
Hermes basically is the keeper of the mediator and knowledge.
Freedom may be personified by describing it as a Patriot from the revolutionary war. Saying that freedom helped to push the soldiers to defeat the British would be personi…fying the idea of freedom. To personify something, the writer must give the concept/quality/idea traits that may be found in a person, or make the concept/quality/idea behave as a person.
A narcissist (from character in the Greek mythology, Narcissus) is someone who seeks pleasure only for themselves.
I have heard of this before.
As many times as the supply will allow him to. So STOP allowing him to.
For the same reasons they can't maintain a real relationship. On top of the fact they get bored VERY VERY easily.
