The Ralston College article really is a head scratcher. A narcissist once worked for me. I knew a little about them prior because I'd read a few articles about NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder). So I recognized her NPD. She wasn't a horrible software engineer but was best assigned to projects that she could do on her own. The stories she told me about raising her kid made me very sad. For example, she would have to beat her son at the fast food ordering window because he would try to tell her what he wanted to eat. It was necessary for her to beat him because it was too distracting to have him talking while she was ordering. Folks with NPD shouldn't be parents and shouldn't be Presidents. At least that's my conclusion.
