Is Shake a narcissist? Uh, YEAH
The Love Is Blind reunion is giving me life and when one of the women (I'm pretty sure it was Iyanna who said it, but I'm blanking for some reason) told Shake that he needs to go to therapy to work on his narcissistic tendencies and BINGO! Shake seems like a textbook narcissist. Even when he says that he's "playing the villain," that to me is a sign of narcissism, since it's a grandiose statement that isolates him socially.
I mean, tell me this doesn't sound like Shake: "Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding."
Lack of empathy? ✅
Excessive need for admiration? ✅
Cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding? ✅✅✅✅✅
Also, narcissists tend to play the victim, because playing the victim or feeling like a victim may stem from lower self-esteem, low empathy, or a need for control.
Deeps dodged a giaaaaant bullet. Shake is a narcissistic nightmare!!
