Researchers played for infants tapes of other babies crying. As predicted, that was enough to start the tears flowing. But when researchers played babies recordings of their own cries, they rarely began crying themselves.

Wow – babies recognize their own crying. Basic empathy + ego there. I didnt know that.

I wonder if some babies didnt cry at all? did some cry to their own crying tapes?

The quote is messed up, but you get the idea. I love babies so I’ve done a lot of reading into this subject.

Also infants are highly sensitive to the moods of those around them. Parents who fight a lot can affect their baby that is just a few months old. This is why a good marriage is important for childrearing.

Second point: Narcissists (again, the NPD ones) do see their children as extensions of themselves.

Sure, in terms of ego, everything is an extension (or more precisely, possession).

But when Hope says “loves their extension” I interpret that as a spiritual connection, a mutual belonging – because of the love word there.

NPDs control and squeeze their ego extensions.

By the way I ended my relationship. I figured the % of NPD in her wasnt worth my effort any longer.

Yea, my brother’s been opening up to me a lot for some strange reason, and to listen to the stories he tells himself about his problems is very enlightening. Every problem in his life begins and ends with “the other,” whether that be mom and dad, the Marines, this boss or that one, some woman, etc….
