The Many Personality Disorders of President Obama
What do you get when you have a useless Psychology Degree and blatant disappointment with the current president? You get me writing a hub with shameless psychological humor and some serious truths about Obama. Welcome to my world folks.
My favorite course in college was "Abnormal Psychology". I distinctly remember the weeks we studied personality disorders. On the first day, the professor warned the students that we would probably assign ourselves, the people we knew, and/or family members to the many categories of mental disorders. He wasn't kidding- suddenly I realized my dad had Antisocial Disorder, my mom had Multiple Personalities, and my dog had Dependent Personality Disorder. All kidding aside, it's easy to see any of these traits and symptoms in everyone, but it's truly astonishing that we know one person who has them all- Mr. President Obama!
Borderline Personality Disorder
It is known that people with Borderline Personality Disorder are uncertain about their identity. Sound familiar? We're all uncertain about Obama's identity! Thankfully, Obama is getting help with this one because we now know he was born, and perhaps it was even in the United States. His mysterious past keeps us guessing, but he's dealing with it, and we should cut him some slack.
If he wants to be Muslim AND Christian, who are we to rain on his identity parade? If he wants to be BFFs with every foreign country, who are we to guess which border his identity and allegiance sides on? Why would we question a man who sides with Mexico to sue a state (Arizona) within his own country?
Another symptom of this disorder is serious folks- impulsiveness with money. How can we ignore this? He proposes more and more spending. Pissing out billions of dollars is the definition of impulsive spending and creating plans to spend even more money in the future, like Obamacare.
Avoidant Personality Disorder
While we're on the topic of money, Obama clearly suffers from avoidant personality simply because the same national debt issues keep resurfacing. I've been hounded relentlessly over a couple thousand dollars in debt, and yet Obama is able to avoid and postpone dealing with trilions. The economic issues were the main concerns when he got into office, and yet he's been able to avoid them for almost two years.
However, prognosis is good as most clinicians will agree these individuals, with help, can gain some ability to relate to others. Wouldn't that be something? Obama able to relate to us?
Paranoid Personality Disorder
This disorder is most common in men and can be genetic, but largely influenced by one's environment. So much that this person's environment is a constant trigger for suspicion.They will distrust those around them, this being displayed in Obama's view of Americans. His obvious distrust and dislike for Americans is so profound, he welcomes illegal immigrants into his country because he must believe they don't have as many hidden motives as Americans.
Obama should be warned though. Without treatment, these people will suffer complications in work and social isolation. This wuold be such a shame if it means he loses his job and we never hear or see him again. However, he's paranoid enough about losing the next election that he will go ahead and spend the other half of his term campaigning.
Anti-Social Personality Disorder
Definition: Antisocial personality disorder is a mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others. This behavior is often criminal.
Couldn't have said it better myself. This describes Obama's campaign approach, his presidency thus far, and his negligence for the constitution and everything dear to Americans hearts and the American way.
Fire-setting and cruelty to animals during childhood are linked to the development of antisocial personality. Maybe we should have insisted knowing more about his past. But more recently, he did kill that poor fly. Too late now- we have a bonafide crazy in congress. Seriously, the description is startling: This person is able to act witty and charming, be arrogant, disregard others safety, break the law, and good at manipulating others. Sure, he was more charming than George W. but at what cost?
Dependent Personality Disorder
Those who have a dependent personality are well suited for presidency, Obama included. These people do not like taking personal responsibility for anything they do and have a hard time making decisions without support from others. Lucky for Obama, he has a team of people to assist him with decisions and a laundry list of people to blame everything on, George W. Bush taking the top spot.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
These people have an inflated sense of self-importance and a pre-occupation with themselves. This was first apparent during Obama's campaign when everybody (except me) first fell in love with him. This man actually won a Nobel Peace Prize for projected achievements. He is so good, he doesn't even have to achieve anything to get awards.
Those with this disorder also:
- warrant undeseving constant attention and admiration- you mean like during his campaign and the media's role?
- disregard others feelings. This would be what he's done for Americans in general.
- pursue mainly selfish goals. OBAMACARE.
Multiple Personality Disorder
Do I really need to go into detail for this one?
Obama's closing thoughts on mental illness
After the Arizona shooting tragedy, Obama described the actions of mentally ill Jared (the shooter), as "Evil". If mental illness is evil, then Obama is one wicked warlord.
Thank you for taking this warped journey with me. Remember, take your medications...if you can afford it. If you have a mental illness and can't afford your medications, Obama will secure you a spot in prison or homeless on the streets. If you lived in another country though, you'd receive assistance and recognition from our president.
- Political Stereotyping
You are a rigid, religious fanatic! You are fearful of change, aggressive, and not very stylish. I could list some more flattering traits about you, but you're a conservative so you'll probably pull out your shotgun and go ape on me.
- "Trump This .. Trumped"
Here I go starting trouble again. I love starting trouble so much apparently, that I'm doing it with people on my own side
