Are these lists genuine – do they reveal the ‘real’ HG?* Or are you presenting a particular facade/persona/mirroring?
*the closest we can get
The answer is contained in the lists.
This one is so much fun! If you need a good belly laugh, this is a good relief.
I have listened to both and my logic (based on what I heard) and instinct (based on how I heard it) tells me they are both authentic, but this is the problem, isn’t it. You are a good liar. You’ve told us this and I have seen evidence, some of it even on this blog, where you tell us you have no reason to lie. I have to take that into consideration. So I think what I will do is look at ALL the evidence included in all the work I have seen you produce, on this blog and elsewhere, including your interviews, livestreams, books etc – and make a decision using everything you’ve said or written in all those places. I think this is what you’d suggest we do to get the most objective picture of the truth and the most logical and reliable conclusion.
Sorry, MB – I replied in the wrong section. It is a reply for HG’s comment.
Hi Annaamel, I have hesitated to respond to your thoughts but decided to proceed, at the risk of incurring HG’s…annoyance. If we look at the logic, HG is a narc and is self-proclaimed (I agree) the best at what he does (being a narc), we can see narc behaviors in him. Who better to see them in and learn of them from than the best? But, bottom line, he is a narcissist and as such, it all potentially applies to him also. His reasons for not lying on the blog are valid, to our perspective, but… HG’s perspective is that of a narc, not of ours. So I always try to remember that and take the suggestions if I like them and leave them behind if I don’t, on these lists. He has some really great suggestions, for sure! His legacy building narcissist/empath info is solid, in my opinion. No question he gives that to us straight.
Thanks for your response, AV. I just came across it.
I appreciate your comments and I cannot imagine anything you’ve said would annoy HG in any way.
Here’s my problem. I like what he says on his lists. I agree with a lot of it. I like authors he mentions. I also find his frustrations frustrating. I enjoy the lists.
So I think – could HG be mirroring the likes and dislikes of people like me to make us feel loyal to him?
I have said elsewhere that I see two HGs and I guess one of the divisions for me is whether he’s being honest or not. I think of one of the HGs as the honest one (whose opinions, preferences and interests are fairly stable) and the other as the HG that is fluid and changeable based on what (and who) is around him.*
I believe I know what HG really thinks about a few things (which I’ve taken from some interviews, from some comments on the blog, from lists he’s made) but because those opinions are very similar to what I think it makes me more wary (because it’s quite convenient) and so I try harder to stay objective. I don’t think I can approach it any other way.
*of course if there is only one HG and it’s all blurred together (the real opinions and the pretend ones), this makes it all much more difficult to separate truth and lies, and makes being cautious even more important.
I would say there is validity in your final paragraph.
‘I would say there is validity in your final paragraph.’
I recognise that and I put that caveat in there because I know that’s many readers’ positions.
For me it is not enough to think there is no real nugget of authenticity anywhere in what he says. I am too attached to the truth to take it all at face value and then accept some ideas and leave others. I have to be able to believe some bits are true or authentic and I need to believe I have a chance of working out the difference. Otherwise I’d just give up.
I currently believe that HG does say and write things that are more or less true. He might say he uses the truth to manipulate but I think sometimes he judges that the truth can do no damage and could do some good and so he goes with it.
I believe at other times he lies deliberately or deliberately creates the impression that what he’s saying is true while not personally believing any of it. I think he’s able to do that with few compunctions or little discomfort, perhaps by compartmentalising the truth and proceeding as if the lie is the truth.
As to whether his recommendations for his readers and clients about narcissism are true – I think they are. I don’t thing he’s aiming to deceive with this information. And while I haven’t accessed all of the materials attached to the blog in the KV about narcissism or all of the videos purely about narcissism also seem truthful and reliable.
I have made this cheerful thread a bit dour, so to add I’ll just say I recommend these lists to curious readers.
I apologize Annaamel, I did not mean to offend you. Thank you for writing your thoughts, it seems we see it largely the same.
