1. Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism. (mayoclinic. org)
and add to that:
2. Compulsive lying, intentional dissimulation, is associated with a range of diagnoses, such as antisocial, borderline and narcissistic personality disorders. When it comes to compulsive liars, “words seem to flow out of their mouths without them thinking about it.” (psychologytoday.com)

  1. Know THINE enemy. “Thine” before a vowel. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, etc. etc. etc. Gotta keep up the standard.

    1. I actually googled it this morning before posting and the incorrect version was dominant. Thanks for the heads up. I changed it.

  2. AND THEN SOME.. CAN NEVER SAY: THEY ARE SORRY, THAT THEY GENUINELY CARE, OR THAT THEY ARE GENUINELY GRATEFUL FOR ANYTHING OR ANYBODY, EXCEPT SUPERFICIALLY WHEN SERVING THEIR PERSONAL INTERESTS… The speak in opposites and almost everything out of their mouth can NOT be trusted. poin.

    1. How best does a family deal with this and can that be taught to congress and the senate and the rest of the planet?

  3. There is no cure for it, I mean within the person,, my one concern is that Trump does look like he might crack kind of soon but then we’re left with Pence and somehow his cruelty and bigotry will pass as bad character and nothing more and get just as much evil done. I live in a high Donald support area and they are racist and sexist but they mostly think he will bring jobs, so stuff like deporting people is acceptable because it frees up jobs. I think not just jobs but free higher learning should be on agenda because it can’t just be resisting, it has to be about building and creating and these people seem deeply insecure and not like people who just won an election. They’re openly betraying a lack of compassion and proud of it. Can all of them be criminally insane? That insecurity needs to be addressed.

  4. Nobody knows the usage rules for those old forms anymore. I do only because I grew up in a fundamentalist church where they still used the King James bible, and I realized at some point that mine or thine before a word beginning with a vowel was the consistent practice. Also, Shakespeare; Lear, for instance, says “Cover her face. Mine eyes dazzle. She died young.”

  5. Judith Moffett I somehow never learned the rules, despite having taught for 15 years at a Quaker school in NYC and enjoying hearing the “Plain Language” used at times (thee and thy).

  6. My husband attended a Quaker school (Penn Charter) in Philadelphia, and used to tell a story about a time when some of the boys were fooling around where they weren’t supposed to be, and a teacher came in and said “Get thee’s asses out of here!” This would have been in the 1940s. Thee’s (sing and pl) had evolved among Friends out of thy and thine. In the KJV you get thy and thine for singular and your for plural, but language does change of course. Think of “They invited Frank and I to dinner,” which you now hear everywhere.

  7. Unfortunately, I think your analysis is correct. For the life of me, I still can’t understand why this was not obvious to more voters. Are our standards that low?
