Why do hotel bills need to be itemized for the IRS?

Hotel bills must be itemized because only a subset of expenses are tax-deductible. Your lodging, meals, and even items like dry cleaning are deductible. But expenses like using gym facilities, watching paid movies, or playing games are not.

Documentation 17 from IRS has a very complete set of information on this. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p17.pdf

No, car rental companies do not have the legal right to check your credit without your explicit "written" consent. They can only charge to your credit card. They also have no right to do a background check.

What is the rates for mileage for travel when gas is reimbursed?

The rate for mileage and for gas are completely different and is dependent upon the company in which you work.

Gas is considered an expense and as such receipts for gas should be submitted to your company and you should be reimbursed for the actual amount of gas purchased if they don't pay mileage.

Mileage includes everything from gas to wear and tear on your vehicle and the insurance you pay on your car. The current dollar rate per mile in the U.S. is 48 cents. That's also the amount you can claim on your taxes if you're not paid for gas or mileage by the company.

Do you need a past port?

Only if you're travelling out of the country (Note: You don't need a pass port to travel to Puerto Rico). You do not need a passport when driving. That is what a license is for. A driver's license is as important as a passport.

Do you feel teleconferencing will make a greater impact on the meetings movement in the future?

Teleconferencing will make a big impact on meetings because the members can attend without having to travel. This is a way of ensuring everyone can attend , because if people have to travel to meetings there can be traffic delays and other things preventing them from getting there on time. It may also make it possible to record what other people have said rather than try to take notes at a traditional style meeting.

Credit
Business Travel

Can your company force you to get a personal credit card for business use?

No, you should not have to take out a credit card in your name for business use. Also, if you do this and something goes wrong with the company, YOU will be responsible for the credit debt.

If the company wants to use credit cards, it should take them out itself and supply these business cards to its staff.

However, a company can require you to accept responsibililty for a company credit card issued for your use. Many companies make it a condition of employment to use the company credit card for official travel and purchases. There is nothing they can do to force you to take the card, but they can fire you for not complying with company policies.

Websites

Would a Narcissist recognize himself as one if he saw a description of traits on a relevant website?

There is a lot of false information about narcissism on the interenet. After talking to different therapists, they have all told me the same thing. No, a narcissist would never consider the possibility of being narcissist. No matter what he has read. And if he was diagnosed, he really would not care at all. They don't want to change their behavior or 'get help' because they don't believe there's anything wrong with them. If you sincerely are worried or think that you might be a narcissist, you definitely are not one.

AnswerI honestly don't think so because, my ex narcissist and I would sit down and watch lifetime movies and he would swear up and down that he wasn't like the male characterers that abused their wives on a movie. He denied it being that way left and right. I think they will deny it just to keep you. My narcissist and I lived like roomates until I moved out. I figured I could do bad by myself. AnswerHere is the interesting thing for me. I have not been professionally diagnosed as a N, but I started doing some research recently about it since I have a lot of trouble maintaining my relationships (specifically, romantic relationships). I'm 37 years old. I am single. I have probably had 4 truly special relationships in my life since the time I was 22. They would last 2-3 years each and then I would PUSH the person away. They were all truly special women. But the most recent one, was the most special to me. She was EVERYTHING I ever wanted. And I fought so hard to make her mine. I did everyting in my power. After 3 years, it's all over. What happened? I pushed her away. Simple as that.

Over the past few months, I have been trying deperately to figure out WHY I would do that. And why it seems to be the SAME thing I always do. Always!

I started seeing a psychiatrist last week. Social Anxiety seems to be the first "issue" we've identified. While I completely agree with that assessment, there seems to be something more going on with me.

A couple days ago I googled "men who control women." I stumbled upon this thing called "narcissism." Had I heard of it? Sure. Did I know what it was? Nope.

I read on. I continued to do research.

This morning I landed here. And specifically on this question.

I need to tell you - I am almost 99.9% sure I am a N. And the way I know that is by what I am reading here and on other sites.

Trust me, I do not want that "title," especially after reading the feedback about helping a person facing this issue.

I'm certain my ex-girlfriend is lucky to be rid of me. I miss her terribly - and, yes, I bug her with an email every now and then trying to "get her back" (manipulation). But this goes beyond her, in a way. I may NEVER have a real relationship. That makes me feel a bit sick and hopeless. I truly truly don't want to be that way in a relationship and it seems there may be no help for this.

Scary, to say the very least. But to answer the question - I do believe a N would recognize himself as one, because I did!

AnswerUnlikely. Sometimes the narcissist does gain self-awareness and knowledge of his predicament - typically in the wake of a life crisis (divorce, bankruptcy, incarceration, accident, serious illness, or the death of a loved one). But, in the absence of an emotional correlate, of feelings, such merely cognitive awakening is useless. It does not gel into an insight. The dry facts alone cannot bring about any transformation, let alone healing. AnswerThe thought of any imperfection regarding the mind, or behavior of a narcissist would never enter their mind-even if they were reading their own description on a webite. AnswerI asked my now-ex to read some of the material on a relevant website, and after he read it, he told me that it didn't really "resonate." Btw, my therapist told me that while he couldn't diagnose someone in absentia, based on what I had told him, he thought my ex had narcissistic traits. AnswerIn the slim chance that an N would recognize himself in any description, the knowledge would serve only to anger him and put his defenses into action. Disinterest and dismissal would be the typical response, like the reader whose husband said the material "did not resonate." The reason I have not sent my ex any info is that he uses projection so much that he would find a way to accuse me of being an N based upon what he'd read. The hardest thing I've had to accept in all of this is that he will never get it, he will always say the relationship's demise was due to my emotional problems (in fact he claims that the only responsibility he bears was that he "tried too hard to help" me), and he will never be sorry for his brutality. The only healthy satisfaction I will ever get is in my own recovery from my addiction to narcissists, and on the outside chance that one of his future mates may come to me because she doesn't know who else to talk to, and I can assure her that she's not crazy. It is horrifying how few people know that narcissism isn't just an insult, but an actual personalilty disorder that costs people their lives. AnswerI immediately recognized the traits of pathological narcissism in myself after reading about it on the site mentioned. It articulated so much of what I have been aware of for decades. Unfortunately, since the prognosis for pathological narcissists is so grim, I feel nothing but despair right now. I feel like a monster that needs to be isolated from the world so it doesn't emotionally hurt anyone. I fathered two wonderful daughters, and now I am freaked out... should I just leave them? What hope is there for me? Answer to aboveIf you come back to read this please don't leave oyur daughters. The fact that your recognized these traits in yourself means there is hope and a chance you can work on it and change things. If you had denied it all and thought it didnt describe you then yes there might not be hope. But please don't feel despondant when you can get better. As with every disease and addiction realizing it is the first step and often the hardest.

Look for proffessional help, i have been reading about this alot tonight b/c i have a friend i believe is a N, and i also read that it can be changed, especially if the person is aware and openminded about it. Please look for help, don't give up, you sound like a good person stuck in a bad situation.

Good luck, keep your head up, you actually give me hope my friend could also realize her problem one day.

AnswerI like Sam Vaknin. He nailed it. But he does get lost in words and goes off the deep end. Wordy. good but Wordy. AnswerSeriously, you can start by not dumping your major life decisions onto strangers to make. Only you can decide and take responsibility for your actions.

The reason somebody said yes, shouldn't alarm you. YOU asked a yes/no question so if a person answers "yes" and it bothers you then maybe you weren't serious.

Narcissist do use language less literally than others. They are vague, hint, and use innuendos, extremist exaggerations (in order to shift the frame of reference). Do you literally mean what you are asking? or are you just trying to get someone to respond a certain way.

AnswerI'm a Narc and I actually take pride in that knowledge. I don't believe that it actually is a "disorder", more like an evolutionary variation. If I'm successful in life and pass on my genes then being a Narc might actually be a good thing. There is no "normal" state of being people... there is no right way too think, feel, or behave... everything is relative in the long run. I'll be successful in life because I seek power, and that hunger for more than mediocre and average is what drives me on. Most people can't understand this desire because they choose the path of least resistance... they never leave their sphere of comfort. Sad really. The Best Answer

I know you people hate technical jargon, over analyzing and deep concepts in answers but bare with me...ok?

By the way, before I get started--addressing the person above--do you have meaningful relationships with family and friends?

"Would a Narcissist recognize himself as one if he saw a description of traits on a relevant website?"

Normally no, because for one, if the Narcissist's needs include positive recognition from a society that views mental illness negatively, they will naturally have a tendency to lean toward the denial end of the acceptance spectrum when confronted with oppositional information, no matter how creditable or "relevant" the source. To illustrate, for those of you who are not Narcissists, how would you react to your physician abruptly telling you that you have cancer? To a Narcissist a threat to their perfect self-image is equally a death sentence. In short, it is a common occurrence for humans in general, but more so for the Narcissist--their very self depends on it--to either downplay or reject outright the severity of painful, contradictory, or personally challenging information. A site modeling a "disordered" image is clearly inconsistent with the perfect image of, and thus unrecognizable to, the Narcissist.

HOWEVER, this is where it gets interesting. What if the Narcissist, though still pathologically dependent on positive regard, strips "mental illness" of its negative connotation via intellectualization--a defense mechanism that reduces anxiety or emotional distress through excessive reasoning: "mental illness is a construct of society for the purpose of instilling guilt, fear, and self-hate into those who deviate in their behaviour and thinking to preserve optimal productivity and exploit common thinking via collective consumerism", the Narcissist might say. The Narcissist is still a slave to his addiction, and continues to project a compensatory and elitist image, but is no longer a slave to the labels of society. He has ascended--and is self-aware.

Although it should be noted that this perceptual and cognitive leap doesn't change how the Narcissist presents himself to the world, for should his suppliers find out, extraction would become unfathomably difficult.

The world must never know that the Narcissist is a Narcissist.

Does mileage include gas charges?

Usually, when a company pays an employee for mileage when they have used their vehicle for company business, the mileage is intended to cover gas and wear and tear/maintenance. For example, if you drove your car 20 miles for business and the company reimbursed you $.40 per mile, you would receive $8. If your car gets 20 mpg, your gas costs would be $2.75 (or whatever you pay for a gallon of gas). Mileage usually does not cover tolls and parking.
