Jun 6 2012: Rate your own Twitter narcissism by reviewing your timeline. How many of these tweets are actually useful to others?
Jun 6 2012: .@Cosmic_Fox Don't confuse narcissistic with sociopath. A sociopath doesn't value the needs of others. A narcissist just can't see them.
Jun 6 2012: Sweet, well-meaning narcissists are called "children". You don't expect them to see others' needs.
Jun 6 2012: Narcissism is normal in children and insufferable in teens but pathological only in adulthood.
Jun 6 2012: Narcissism is giving someone a birthday gift of an autographed photo of yourself.
Jun 6 2012: Non-narcissism is giving someone a birthday gift that is precisely tailored to their needs, not yours.

Jun 27 2012: (Detached leg = more sympathy. BTW: It's a nice leg, an expensive looking one that you wouldn't notice if the man hadn't put it on display.)
Jun 27 2012: Love leads you to overestimate the other person's capabilities. If they disappoint you, the fault lies not in them but in you.
Jun 27 2012: Jet-lagged and delirious, wandering the chips aisle of an American supermarket, giggling about the Cheese Balls. A terrible male affliction?
Jun 27 2012: Lying to yourself is when one part of you denies what another part of you knows to be true because it's just too damned inconvenient.
Jun 27 2012: You can totally mess up a firefly's love life by flashing a flashlight at him, but what kind of pervert are you?

Jun 28 2012: The world is full of dysfunction on a massive scale. You can do little about most of it except to protect yourself from it.

Jun 29 2012: @xtinewu More like a small Albertson's.
Jun 29 2012: Artists with great technical skills are usually defeated by ego, which prevents them from seeing their own work as others do.
Jun 29 2012: "Ego" is not self-esteem but the pretense of it when actual self-esteem is weak.
