An Analysis Of Trump’s Psychology

A great article with an examination of Donald Trump’s psychology, and the traits which make him successful:

Enough about how smart Mr. Trump is. I actually was motivated to write this article because of the personality traits that are revealed in Mr. Trump’s behavior. His character traits are every bit as fascinating as his intellect.

Abraham Maslow, the American Psychologist and Philosopher best known for his self-actualization theory of psychology, spent most of his professional career trying to identify what was right with people, rather than looking at pathology. Maslow did extensive research to define the traits of a “self actualized” person. My wife and professional partner is also a high IQ person. She makes the point that a better term is “self actualizing,” correctly pointing out that there isn’t a state of personality to be achieved, but rather the individual is in the ongoing process of becoming his best self.

Donald Trump’s observable behavior informs us about the degree to which he is “self actualizing.” Quote from a Psychology Professor under whom I once studied; “People are not who you think they are. People are not who they think they are. People are what they do. That is why this is called a behavioral science.” Forget the labels. They are all misleading. Pay attention to the behavior.

Here are some examples of the Traits of a Self Actualized Person, from Maslow’s own research:

It is interesting to look at Trump’s psychology, and the traits he exhibits. Each of the traits they describe here as part of Trump’s makeup, are exactly the opposite of what a narcissist would exhibit. He is non-conformist, creative, focused internally on his own morals and goals rather than focused on the world around him, integrates with anyone of any class, feels bound to humanity, and is open an honest about how he feels.

Narcissists are the exact opposite. They are rigidly conformist to what they think the world expects to see, totally not creative or independent thinkers, focused externally on projecting a façade they think the world will respect, they only associate with people of “appropriately high” status for themselves, they feel totally detached from humanity, and they always cloak how they feel.

The world is very bifurcated, into two distinct groups. Whether you call them narcissists and non-narcissists, liberals and conservatives, or just evil and good, look for the difference. You do not want to be caught sleeping.

Tell others about r/K Selection Theory’s reviews, because it will make you look to be of “appropriately high” status

    This seems to perfectly explain why Trump is definitely a narcissist:

    1. He gives off a facade to try and match the smart preppy Ivy League crowd he was never accepted into even despite his father’s money getting him into Wharton. Trump is essentially a Queens blue collar Archie Bunker nouveau riche and it burns his stomach that the Manhattan crowd (and limousine liberal elites) does not accept him.
    2. Trump married trophy wives to build up the facade (and then cheats on them openly in public with no remorse).
    3. Billionaires and generals are acceptably “high status” individuals to be around him. Men with facial hair like Bolton not so much.
    4. It devastates Trump’s small ego that A list celebrities now want nothing to do with him.
    5. Trump has no interest in “normal” Americans as evidenced by his request for a mom to remove her crying child from one of his speeches. Yes, he allows the little people to worship as his feet but he would never actually interact with them on. Human level. That would require too much hand sanitizer.

    Trump is mentally an emotionally hurt 11 year old boy that can get us all killed with his weak self esteem.

      Personally, I hate it when some woman insists on bringing her little scream-machine into a public meeting where we are all there to hear what someone has to say – not to have the speakers words constantly interrupted with “Waaaah!” – because the infant’s mother is too inconsiderate to care.
      So Trump goes up in my estimation for whacking that one on the head.

      You have just regurgitated every single leftist trope floated in the last twenty months. Being a father he has not criticized his ex-wives who were either unfaithful or finished with the relationship and wanted to “move on” with a great deal of his money. Good fathers do not “go after” the mothers of their children irregardless of what they did in the marriage. Trophy wives? A good looking. tall, very wealthy man is going to attract good looking women. This is simple biology. You sound like a sore loser as with the other anti-Trumpers in the mating game. He has made a habit of associating with all types of people especially at work sites, employees of his businesses, and in charity work which is why he knew what the common worker was worried about in this economy and state of the country. You seem to confuse with whom he negotiates with whom he employs. His high profile life was a branding/marketing strategy (that worked!) to build his businesses in real estate, entertainment, and hotels which all require marketing and is not personal. Many have done this but no one has been as successful with it.

      I’ll stop there. You are an inexperienced silly person. Resentful, jealous and immature you should try and learn from the adult Trump to improve your life.

    Well to a point. Big Minds Run In Big Circles. There *IS* an inherited core of everyone’s personality that you can’t and won’t change. When I start cursing the German state TV news that sometimes are on when I visit my mother she invariably says “You got that from your granddad”. And she’s so right.
