Dear NurSerial Readers,
This article could be construed as political. Fair enough, it’s an examination of the mental state of the President. Look further, however: It’s about the relationship between mental health and decision-making. Narcissism has got to be an incredibly painful condition to have or be around. The very nature of narcissism is that it distorts the perception of the person affected, often leading to false beliefs about elevated personal power and importance. People with narcissism can be easily offended and impulsively over-reactive to perceived slights.
This isn’t a good feature in a world leader.
Please read, think about and pass along.
