Cosmic Mission Narcissus saves the world ...

We speak of all the countless and unspeakable cases, when Narcissus puts his foot in at almost every official occasion. The really embarrassing mistakes, by which he is attracted almost magnetically, while at the same time, the whole staff of helpless PR agents breathlessly hunting behind to come up with threadbare, but reasonably convincing explanations for his incredible boo boos. It is completely impossible to foresee all the misadventures into which a Narcissist can stumble. It is even more impossible, however, to directly inform the Narcissist that he has just been totally misbehaving. At least none of his advisors dares to do that. Even if it has been a diplomatic faux pas of a magnitude that makes the toughest bones in the political arena stagger. But the Narcissist always has an excellent reason for his behavior:

He just once has to save the world…

A mission of cosmic dimensions

Regrettably the idea for the following chapter is not my copyright, but created by a real existent specimen of its species. One, who actually professes his high-grade narcissism: Sam Vaknin. He deserves numerous pluses and I owe him recognition without envy (which probably would be a sufficient motive for his selfless outing). Sam Vaknin, who calls himself a "psychopath", is so to speak the prototype of the hardcore Narcissist, and he is proud of it. Vaknin has a vocation: The enlightenment of Humanity about the inner world of the Narcissist. He pursues his goal completely humorlessly and with missionary zeal. For example, by secrete masses of text to the internet and delighting the whole world with books and videos dedicated to only one single topic: his own unique and remarkable state of mind.

The study of his self-reflections requires a certain degree of masochism. It is nevertheless more insightful than any textbook. Even though it evidently does not contribute anything to question or even change himself and his behavior. But how could it be otherwise?
