Re: Questions Only VI: How Much Is Too Much?

Narcissism is paradoxically an excess of a highly fragile ego. Hence the narcissist is thin-skinned and seeks revenge on those who threaten their hyper-inflated yet fragile self-esteem.

Isn't that fascinating?

Sadly, this type of narcissism describes my 3 stepchildren. :no:

Re: Infirmary Thread #18: Keep Your Social Distance!

Oh, I love that episode. :lol: I'll let you know how it goes. My life could be in danger :lol: In the meantime, I think we've worked out some living arrangements with a mutual friend in the area. Not entirely settled yet, but I think she'll be okay. That's good to hear. My goodness. No doubt this i...

Re: Infirmary Thread #18: Keep Your Social Distance!

I slept in a weird position last night, and I'm totally blaming The Wife because she took up most of the bed, forcing me to scrunch and contort in such a way that my right leg was forced to go places that an older man's right leg should never go :lol: The result is that I think I pinched a nerve in ...

Happy Monday, all :hello: Today I teach two classes in the morning and then will work from home the rest of the day. I'll be limping around a bit, as I slept in a funny position and may have pinched a nerve in my right hip. I'm off to the infirmary thread... The company in general is very good about...

Re: Check-In 110:sphenic supercentenarian pronic darmstadtium.

With any luck, they're cancelling the inspections this year because of the pandemic. They're not cancelling here, and no grace period. Sigh. It's occurred to me that, instead of reducing my hours in May, I should just retire and get a stress-free part-time job. This would have the added benefit of ...

Re: Questions Only VI: How Much Is Too Much?

I think excessive pride, like that you see in Trump's narcissism, is a really bad thing. What we need to do is teach kids how to have the optimal level of self-esteem -- enough to feel good about yourself but not enough to aspire to cult leadership. Would you say that you have that optimal amount of...

Re: Questions Only VI: How Much Is Too Much?

Because the true "sins" of pride, envy, wrath, etc, are invisible. Our bodies are tangible, visible things and so get the lion's share of our attention. Plus, isn't it possible that we're conservative about sexuality because of the problem throughout most of human history with unwanted pre...
