Pinterest Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter The present study was based on a psychoanalytic theory, known as self psychology, developed by Heinz Kohut.“In Kohut’s formulation, caregivers are experienced as ‘selfobjects,’ or emerging parts of one’s sense of self,” the researchers explained. “When needs are unmet, the infant is left with impaired abilities to regulate self-esteem and may defensively avoid and disavow them. The end result of disavowed needs may therefore be the phenomenon now known as narcissistic vulnerability.”The study of 129 undergraduate students found emotional, physical neglect and abuse, and sexual abuse in childhood was associated with vulnerable narcissism. The researchers found two factors underlied the link between childhood maltreatment and narcissistic vulnerability: proneness to shame and the avoidance of selfobject needs.The avoidance of selfobject needs refers to the disavowal of the need to maintain self-cohesion by incorporating others (the selfobject) into the sense of oneself. Those who score high on measures of “avoidance of selfobject needs” are more likely to say that they don’t need positive feedback from others because they already know they are successful. They are also more likely to find it difficult to accept guidance, even from someone they respect. And they are less likely to feel successful because they are part of a successful group.“[O]ur data provide preliminary support for the roles of shame-proneness and selfobject need avoidance as individual and joint mechanisms through which exposure to [childhood maltreatment] leads to narcissistic vulnerability,” the researchers concluded. Email New preliminary research published in the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association suggests that maltreatment during childhood can lead to narcissistic vulnerability in adulthood by increasing a person’s sense of shame and constricting their sense of self.Previous research has found that narcissists can be divided into a “vulnerable” subtype and a “grandiose” subtype.Grandiose narcissists tend to be aggressive, domineering and immodest. They view themselves as superior to others and have an over-inflated self-esteem. Vulnerable narcissists — the lesser known subtype — tend to be defensive, insecure and inhibited. They are bitter that others do not treat them with the respect and admiration they think they deserve. Vulnerable narcissism is “marked by self-consciousness, shame, and helplessness,” the researchers said. LinkedIn
Special to the PRESSEditor,We support the proposed Rio Grande LNG project because people in the Rio Grande Valley need the good-paying jobs that this proposed project will bring. An economic study by the Perryman Group shows that the project would bring thousands of jobs during construction and add a few hundred permanent jobs when the facility is operating.A project like this will make a huge, positive difference in one of the poorest areas of Texas. These good-paying jobs will provide a better quality of life for families and create more business for many small businesses, such as for our restaurant, Mariscos De La Rosa.We believe that the Rio Grande LNG project is safe for the community or we would not be supporting it.We urge everyone to get behind this project as we have so that more Brownsville residents and businesses can benefit from the economic opportunities that Rio Grande LNG will provide for many years. Too much is at stake when it comes to our families, employees, customers, the community and our economy.Rodolfo De La RosaAnahi De La RosaMariscos De La Rosa RestaurantBrownsvilleWant the whole story?

That Tennessee is perhaps tougher than people thought and that Alabama can win in multiple ways.The Vols had lost eight straight to this archrival by an average margin of 23.5 points and a famous Southern rivalry teetered on the cusp of irrelevance. Tennessee’s gritty performance Saturday in Tuscaloosa injected new life in the tradition-bound game, putting up a ferocious fight until Tide RB Derrick Henry took a pitch and rumbled into the end zone with 2:24 left to put Bama ahead for good, 19-14.Henry finished with 143 yards and two touchdowns, a second consecutive sterling performance for the outstanding back who has been overshadowed this season by LSU’s Leonard Fournette. They were hard-earned yards for Henry, as the Tennessee defensive line played its heart out.But if Alabama’s old-fashioned formula of power football wasn’t enough to crush Tennessee, the Tide showed it had other offensive tools that make it even better. Down 10-7 in the fourth quarter, Bama QB Jake Coker led a drive that overcame penalties of 15 and 10 yards and finished with a touchdown to put the Tide ahead 13-7 with 7:08 remaining. On the winning drive, Coker converted third downs on touch passes to his right and his left.Alabama has a bye week before its home showdown with LSU on Nov. 7. In addition to the rest, the Tide will savor the knowledge it is a team that can blend finesse to complement its muscle.
