It's always good to see the Herald keeping things in perspective.
Like this article on the Weatherston trial.
Someone has lined up the mass murderers of history and decided they were narcissists. Then compared them with Mr Weatherston, who is also a mass... um.. hang on... who killed one person.
I'm no rent-a-quote pop psychologist, but I have done a lot of reading in the past about some of these monsters. All despots display narcissism to some degree, but I'm not convinced all of these ghouls were A grade narcissists. They had plenty of "issues" (as the experts would say), but not all badness is narcissism related.
Is it too much to ask the Herald to enlighten us on its sources?
Interestingly, the one despot who stands out to me as displaying classic narcissism is Mao. Why's he not on the list?
And if we want a list of narcissists to handily refer to, surely the entertainment and fashion industries could furnish a nice long list.
