I thought narcissists viewed themselves very highly... are you sure a self hating narcissist isnt a different thing altogether?michael jackson, look up narcissism traits on google.. narcissists are empty self loathing pieces of shit, you're a conceited fuck but you're not a piece of shit
great way of putting it man, you brought my understanding to a new level, and thanks for the link.well I'm not an expert but I happened to be reading up on narcissism a few days ago actually. I was looking at the specific traits and from what I read they are completely different than most people in the fact that they genuinely don't give a shit about ANYONE but themselves, they dont even pay attention to or think about other people really unless they can get something out of the other person. They are like immature selfish 6 year olds in an adult body that will never grow up.

check out this site it goes through the main traits of narcissists and will help you understand what makes them tick.
lol believe me I have plenty narcissistic traits, we all do. but to be a full blown one you need to lack all empathy.
Confidence seems like a practical state of mind. I think you are more productive if you are confident instead of wasting your time questioning your own abilities. but maybe im wrong and we have an epidemic of confident people....Confidence is overrated. Too much of it blinds you to your flaws and your own shortcomings, and it makes you forget that other people are better than you.
I remember I saw in a study that the VAST MAJORITY of people ranked themselves as far above average in intelligence. When you consider that nearly everyone else claims to be "smarter than everyone else", it kind of defies the meaning of 'above average'. And to boot, these people had their IQs tested, and it was FAR below what they (over)estimated.
But don't slash your wrists either, that's not really productive.
