> > > > > Hello Everybody:
> > > > > Yesterday, Charlie mentioned to me, " the grim epxeriences & frustration of living with compensatory narcissism." As most of you know, my styles are strongest to weakest: 1 Serious, 2 Inventive, and 3 Sensitive. Dave Kelly when he defined a compensatory narcissistic style, the Inventive, used as a model the MBTI, ENXP ( x=T/F ) . Now, those of you know that the ENP's biggest problem, is staring things, but losing interest and moving on to new projects, before completing the old ones, see the great weakness of the Inventive Style. If the Inventive is not coupled with a work style-Serious, Conscientious, and Aggressive, not much concrete work is going to get done, and you have just image & illusions of things done.

> > > > > Through no action on my part, my 2 strongest styles balance each other off, and prevent excess from either style...! My continuing frustrations come from the Sensitive Style's Vigilant like scanning of the environment, the ability to listen to what is said, how it is said, double meanings, unspoken things, etc. The Inventive Style allows me to rapidly see the impications, and what can be done with the situation.... These styles are things that I was born with, and never tried to attain, merely learning how to use their powers, hit or miss like everybody else.... Its sometimes maddening to me, to be quick enough to grasp these things, and have others want me to explain in detail, when its so " obvious "! Rich

> > > I have a funnier story. In September ,1975, the L A Times ran lenghty stories on all the likely candidates. Somebody late in the month, who was going to win, I blurted out Jimmy Carter. Well, I was stuck. At first, everybody asked, "Who the H*** is Jimmy Carter? " Then it was, " He'll never make it. " Finally, it was, " How could you have know that? " It was a long time from Sept, 1975 to Nov, 1976! Rich

> Whenever I get involved with a situation, like starting my new job or a relationship I'm always able to see the outcome before it happens. Believe me, I don't set out to manipulate the circumstance but overall it just happens that I can foretell what I call the inevitable. I try my best, I say "Dee, now come on, stop thinking like that!!" but low and behold my gut instinct is so strong that sure enough my prediction becomes the reality. eg. I was watching the Formula One with my mom and I jumped in my seat and said, "mom, that car is going to smash into the people in the pit stop!" She looked at me and back to the TV where the car then drove in to the pit stop and Wham! the car hit three of his crew! There was no indication this was going to happen, even the commentators were saying that it was a freak accident. My mom just looked at me and shook her head. She's use to me.

Hello Dee:
I hear what you are saying! Most people seem to assume that we are just making this stuff up, to make oursleves look good.... I'm sorry to say that before I was married, I used to use my powers for manipulation! This was after Vietnam, and one of my sisters was always introducing to young ladies, college educated. Instead of arranging things, so that I could sleep with them, I kept them at bay.... But, using the feedback, and " knowing just what to do ", they never really knew the game we were playing, and probably that it was just too bad things didn't work out! When I was engaged, I was aware that this was avery bad way to operate, and was unkind to them! Rich
