Lynn, has anybody suggested that Jill needs to see a shrink? She is a classic case of a sociopath.
JillZ has a classic textbook case of narcissistic personality disorder.
Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which there is an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with one's self.
A person with narcissistic personality disorder:
* Reacts to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation
* Takes advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals
* Has feelings of self-importance
* Exaggerates achievements and talents
* Is preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence, or ideal love
* Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment
* Requires constant attention and admiration
* Disregards the feelings of others, lacks empathy
* Has obsessive self-interest
* Pursues mainly selfish goals
Psychotherapy may help the affected person relate to others in a more positive and compassionate manner.
The cause of this disorder is unknown. Narcissistic personality disorder usually begins by early adulthood.
