Sorry, I should have said Obama’s not nearly as bad as Trump: if you look at the numbers, you’ll see I rate Trump almost twice as high on the narcissist-o-meter.
>> What are those “similar” personality traits between Obama and Trump?
It seems their basic (dominant) personality type is narcissist. They both believe the world revolves around them, and they are the only legitimate arbiter of whether something is good or bad.
As I said, Obama isn’t as bad as Trump (I’d guess Obama would get about 6/10, with Trump about 11/10), and Trump seems to have some other bad stuff mixed in, while Obama seems like pretty much a “straight” narcissist. But to be fair to Obama, 80% or more of the recent Presidents and major party candidates have been narcissists. The U.S. presidential election “system” is setup so non-narcissists are much less likely to want to run.
I was continually surprised by how little the 16- and 17-year olds I taught knew. Even about popular music.
They can only own you, my friend, if you’re for sale.
They own a lot of money. None of them is worth a billion dollars. Their “net worth” may be in 10 digits, but most of them aren’t worth 2 cents.
There are exceptions: some do good work with much of their money. As much as saying would have revolted me some years ago, Bill Gates is leading the pack in this regard. There are some commenting here who would include George Soros.
BD and Boopsie live in Kalifornia, since Boopsie’s “in the movie industry”.
My experience is pretty close to GBT’s, though he’s a little older than I am. So at least I can explain his point of view.
I went to one extremely liberal university, and now live down the road from another one, where I worked (and went to some classes) for a couple of years.
My view of “the college experience” may be a little skewed as a result.
What BD is saying is: there is a limit to how much you will be coddled here. COllege students aren’t used to that, today.
It depends on how good the person giving the “treatments” is.
The drawing was very “sketchy” the first couple (or few) years. It made a rather sudden jump to something very much like what it is today in a short time. Some of us thought GT was taking drawing lessons, and some thought he had hired a ghost drawer.
