Narcissism No Longer a Psychiatric Disorder
By TARA PARKER-POPE
November 29, 2010, 3:26 pm

Narcissistic personality disorder, characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance and the need for constant attention, has been eliminated from the upcoming manual of mental disorders, which psychiatrists use to diagnose mental illness.

As Charles Zanor reports in today’s Science Times, the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders — due out in 2013 and known as D.S.M.-5 — has eliminated five of the 10 personality disorders that are listed in the current edition. The best known of these is narcissistic personality disorder.

It is a puzzle why the manual’s committee on personality disorders has decided to throw N.P.D. off the bus.

Re: Narcissism No Longer a Psychiatric Disorder
I was just talking to a colleague of mine about this yesterday...

Long story short, they are folding some symptomology that used to be thought of as separate disorders with comorbid features into more broadly defined personal disorders while disgarding some now redunant catagories... this is to better account for the recent advancements in the affective circumplex model, to better bring the scientific discourse on pathology in line with what has been discovered in experimental research in behavior and neurobiology.

In other words... meh, they have no idea what's going on with people in the modern science of "abnormal" or pathological psychology.

You are better off reading a 1900's text on magick than reading a modern psychology book if you are a reasonably sophisticated person.

Re: Narcissism No Longer a Psychiatric Disorder
A Narcissist is basically a psychopath.

The difference is while a psychopath will hurt people to get what they want, they ENJOY hurting people because of the power it makes them feel.

A Narcissist like a psychopath will hurt people to get what they want, but rather getting enjoyment out of the pain they cause, they simply don't care.

Think of a psychopath and a narcissist driving down the street. Someone's pet dog runs in front of the car and both have opportunity to slow down or stop to save the dog's live.

A psychopath will floor it and shout Weeeeee! and run over the animal.

A Narcissist, not wanting to be bothered by slowing down also runs over the animal and does not care.

And rightfully so, narcissists don't go to psychiatrists, they send neurotics there.

Re: Narcissism No Longer a Psychiatric Disorder
The WHO alternative to DSM IV is the International Classification of Disease, which a large number of countries use for psychiatric diagnosis. Each country has its own variant. I use the Australian modified (AM) version.
The only country that had narcissistic personality disorders in the ICD 10 is the USA. We always get a good laugh out of that. Its looks like they are catching up with the rest of the world.
Personality I don't think it is a psychiatric disorder, its just that some people are uncaring arrogant arseholes. perfectly sane, just pricks.

The DSM IV is run by big pharma, and some say they only produce a new diagnosis after they have created a medication to deal with it. Supposedly all the DSM panel have extensive research grants from big pharma.
Mental health services are just a big drug pushing service, very few of their therapies produce lasting results.

Ha! I wouldn't be surprised, especially if someone was pushing to do this to him behind-the-scenes.

The reality is probably as the previous poster mentioned - the narcissist voted themselves to be normal. They are the kind of people who tend to rise in organizations because they have absolutely no morals - and they certainly don't want to be identified for what they really are.
