Psychiatry related information on Narcissism

  • His paper prefigures concepts of narcissism, homosexuality, parenting, and sublimation [1].
  • This article re-assesses the theories of death, narcissism and identification from a selection of essays by Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan in order to demonstrate that gender is generated out of masochism and the 'death drive' (Todestrieb) [2].

High impact information on Narcissism

  • Narcissism and empathy in steroid users [3].
  • Alfred Adler's significance for the concept of narcissism is presented with reference to four aspects: 1) Adler's theory of masculine protest was evidently a factor influencing Freud to turn toward the phenomenon of narcissism [4].
  • Pearson product-moment correlations, with computations comparing NPI Total score with each of the Shame-Guilt Proneness Scale subscales, were negative for scores on narcissism and shame and for those on narcissism and guilt [5].
  • Of the three subscales to the Australian Sheep-Goat measure, scores for narcissism correlated with belief in ESP and PK but not in Life after death [6].
  • Implications for the conceptualization and measurement of SE and narcissism are discussed [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of Narcissism

  • A factor analysis, performed to examine the structure of the four narcissism measures, suggests four dimensions: desire for attention, admiration, and authority; feelings of inadequacy, unhappiness, and worry; disturbances in interpersonal relationships (exploitation, sense of entitlement, lack of empathy); and sensitivity to criticism and defeat [8].
  • Four orthogonal factors were isolated: Factor I--impulsivity/narcissism/sociopathy; Factor II--assaultive aggression; Factor III--irritative aggression; Factor IV--IQ [9].
  • Greek homosexuality, Greek narcissism, Greek culture: the invention of Apollo [10].

Gene context of Narcissism

  • None of these findings were easily explained in terms of alternative interpretations of self-reported narcissism, and these data demonstrate that empirical support for the continuum hypothesis was not limited to the NPI, undergraduates, or self-report measures [11].
  • In BPP Freud attempts to resolve these questions by recasting primary narcissism as an 'inorganic unity'. The coherence of BPP can be restored if we un do these displacements and read its latent content [12].
  • Level of narcissism was assessed utilizing Exner's (1973) Self-Focus Sentence Completion Test. Hare's Psychopathy Checklist was used as an independent variable to determine a subject's level of psychopathy [13].
  • Phallic narcissism, anal sadism, and oral discord: the case of Yukio Mishima, Part I [14].
