New Haven, CT - Yale professor Janoc Sterling believes that 90% of Harvard professors suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder and there's not a 'bloody thing' anyone can do about it.
Speaking on the issue of the arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr., Professor Sterling noted that "...the overwhelming majority of Harvard professors, 90%, have what we call Narcisistic Personality Disorder. Although a small proportion of these turn into serial killers, sociopaths and other deviants, many become leaders; captains of industry, politicians and even game show hosts. They are very adept at blending in with society as a whole. They can be very productive, especially in societies where narcissism is rewarded.
"It takes a lot of infrastructure to support the narcissist. Las Vegas is a perfect example. Take away the narcissism from Las Vegas and you'd be left with a shithole in the desert. Bwahahaha!!!"
People with this disorder exhibit the following traits:
- Have a grandiose sense of self-importance
- Are preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love (megalomania)
- Believe they are "special" and can only be understood by, or should associate with, people (or institutions) who are also "special" or of high status
- Require excessive admiration
- Have a sense of entitlement
- Are interpersonally exploitative
- Lack empathy
- Are often envious of others or believes others are envious of him or her
- Show arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
When asked to give a list of Harvard associated people who displayed these characteristics, Professor Sterling stated that it would be easier to give a list of Harvard people that didn't have these characteristics but "...you wouldn't know any of them anyway so....what's the point?"
