    I have suspected for a while that an editor at the job where I met Wanna-be Playuh-Narc was a Greater who manipulated both me and WBPN. Watching the BoJo vids supports, if not confirms, this suspicion. That same pseudo-sheepish grin when he’s caught out…. That same trick of getting you on his side if he can get you to think you’re in on the joke with him, and others aren’t.

    I hate to quote Ayn Rand as an example of anything but bad prose, but he was like Ellsworth Toohey manipulating Peter Keating in Fountainhead.

    Is Boris on a list?

      Yes, the Shifty Fifty.

        Thank you AV!

    This is an interesting series thanks.
    I saw him as the clown for a long time.

    Appreciate this, HG. I am so tired of the Trumpian-like chaos. Will BJ resign?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      No.

      1. In so many words says:

        Do you thinks he is in danger of being forced out?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          There is a risk, but not a substantial one.

    HG, I love, love, love your work. It is more valuable than any precious metals / gemstones that exist.

    While I greatly admire you for educating people on the ‘hidden’ aspects of behaviours that are not understood by the majority of the population…….

    Your series on Bumbling Jidiot (BJ) are very good…… it is my personal opinion, he should have been given an ‘HG Roasts’, why do I suggest that? All one has to do is listen to ‘HG Roasts James Corden’, that is how annoying I find dickhead, no, I am not going to apologise for being disrespectful to the (cough, cough) UK Prime Minister (WTF!) Boris Johnson.

    Thank you, HG for your time and for imparting your expertise 🙂

    1. HG Tudor says:

      You’re welcome. Creating quality videos takes time and effort and I have to determine ROI as time is at a premium and that means certain topics whilst doubtless interesting won’t provide the required ROI.

      1. Asp Emp says:

        Thank you for your response, HG. Yes, I do agree on the ‘ROI’ basis, you are totally correct.

        It was something similar to what my friend and I ‘covered’ very recently. We are in the process of winding things down (closing the doors to certain ‘chapters’ – official business). We are not directly involving the ‘block’ (MRN) in the decision making. My friend left a message to arrange to collect some official papers that were withheld from me as the official ‘officer’ – I sat there and thought, fk! (with no increased ET, or ‘variation’, no affect, at all). That is basically entering the ‘Spheres of Influence’ but I am confident that the NC regime would remain intact. My friend understands completely as I had stated I wanted ‘nothing to do with him’ (communication etc). Finalising on the official business aspects is basically the last “ties” that I am cutting RE: MRN. In this particular instance, I can wear my ‘smirk’, totally without emotion but a sense of satisfaction, the ‘final’ liberation for my greater good of not being ‘anchored’ by MRN.

        My friend is also making their own “cutting”, of which, I am pleased for him and it is not long now……we both had similar ‘ethos’ about helping people but have (nor had) no real “allegiance” to that organisation that we volunteered for.

        Thus one journey ends and another begins….

        HG, who would you rather be UK PM, a midrange who is passionate About his country sees it as an extension of himself and is concerned about the facade so wants to be seen to do the right thing or a greater such as boris who does see UK as an extension of himself but completely self serves? I realise mids do too, but the self serving always has the facade in mind.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          You need a Greater at the helm.

        2. A Victor says:

          Wow, Alexissmith, great question! I have actually wondered about this also given the lesser, the midrange and the greater presidents we have had in the US recently. Very interesting. Of course, now HG’s reply only makes for more questions, but it’s a starting point.

        3. Alexissmith2016 says:

          Okay, that’s good to know. Thank you. I can’t help but feel somewhat attracted to Boris. I know I’m alone on this site with that feeling lol. But not alone otherwise as he clearly charms his women.

          Whilst mildly attracted, I would never vote for him or his party. But it is reassuring at least that he is a greater, especially given what’s going on in the world.

          I had forgotten I’d asked this question. Bloody good question too hahah and even better answer.

          1. Sweetest Perfection says:

            He reminds me of a sloth.

          2. Joa says:

            Alex, you are not alone 🙂
            Agree, there is something attractive about him, something familiar. I feel at home immediately.
            My strings are starting to play softly.
            I don’t even mind this funny boyish haircut. And I even started to like this, ha ha ha 🙂

            I haven’t watched this HG series yet. No time. I want to focus well. I also like to delay pleasure in time.

            When I see Boris I see Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber.

      3. Violetta says:

        I’m going to binge-listen to the BoJo and Putin series while I do the spring cleaning, even if they aren’t as fun as The Stig (cue Barry White music and rumbling lower register voice). Might as well learn about these people BEFORE they blow up the planet.

      4. Truthseeker6157 says:

        HG,

        I’m really glad you tackled Boris, such an interesting character. I can appreciate the logic behind having to balance production time and ROI and recognise Boris likely wouldn’t garner the high number of views that someone like Johnny Depp or Chrissy Tiegen Taygan (spelt wrong) might.

        The very fact that you recognise a smaller segment of your viewership who really do find this kind of analysis extremely interesting and elect to cater to them also is very much appreciated. Thank you. I learned a lot from this analysis. The well chosen video really helped my understanding.

    2. Violetta says:

      Are there more political narcs now, or am I just better at spotting them?

      From DM article, “EXCLUSIVE: Hating on Hillary! Joe Biden sent family scathing articles about Clinton’s declining popularity with black voters, impending investigation over her private email server and top aide’s private deals with the UAE, Hunter’s emails reveal”:

      Joe Biden sent family and aides a series of negative articles on Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential bid
      The president has long had barely disguised animus toward Clinton, telling a hedge fund conference. ‘I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate

      He does indeed show multiple signs of dementia, but that’s just making the narcissism more obvious, and of course the narcissism was always there.

      As for Corden, Asp Emp, I thought I didn’t know his work at all, but looked it up so I would understand what HG was talking about in his “Roast” series and in the one about Corden (Arsehole) vs Jada Pinkett. I posted reactions on those yt videos and on the “Jada: What is her hold?” Thread here on narcsite, but the gist was I had seen him in 2014’s Into the Woods, and didn’t even remember him.

      I have tried alerting DM readers to the fact that BoJo is deliberately playing up that befuddled image, and sending them here or to yt, but I think a lot of themprefer to believe he’s stupid. They can’t stand to acknowledge that he ever pulled the wool over their eyes.

      1. Asp Emp says:

        Violetta, more narcissists in the arena of politics? HG talks about the ratios of people in his video ‘The Ultra Framework’. I think sometimes people forget the number of ‘narcissistic’ normals (ratio 0.5 to 0.75 in 6), quite significant. Is this what people may be seeing, as well as narcissists (ratio 1:6)? Empaths can have dampened empathy in when in their working / professional roles (not all empaths though), some may be showing erosion of empathy. When it comes to politics, people are in their ‘roles’. We do not necessarily see them in their private life ‘roles’.

        You may be getting better at spotting narcissists / narcissistic behaviours. Remember HG suggests that the behaviours need to be observed over a period of time. I’d add the types of environments too (LOCEs), including other people around.

        I recall suggesting Biden and his ‘measured’ and bordering on ‘calculated’ speeches, displayed signs of the ageing narcissist around the time of campaigning of the US Presidential elections. That was from watching him once on tv. Since then, reports of his behaviours have been shared on social media and the news.

        Who the fk is James Corden? He starred in ‘Cats’. OMG him in that costume. I can’t watch him on tv – gives me the heebie-jeebies. Have you watched the clips of where he’s going around with Prince Harry? He’s behaving like a right twat. There are a number of “famous” celebrities that give me the same sensation. For years I could not understand why, now I do.

        1. Violetta says:

          I tried watching some clips of Carpool Karaoke before I listened to HG’s Roast, just so I’d have a frame of reference.
          I got nothing. I didn’t find him repellent, as many do, but it also wasn’t funny to me. Maybe I didn’t get the context or any build-up because I hadn’t watched the whole episode. It also wasn’t just the host duetting with a guest, as you’ll see on the old variety shows on the Retro channels (or yt, which is where I’ve found many clips of shows hosted by everyone from Judy Garland to Gypsy Rose Lee). He could carry a tune, his voice wasn’t bad, but you didn’t get the varied energy of Dean Martin duetting with Ella Fitzgerald, Petula Clark, or Sinatra.

          Maybe that’s the problem. For all I know, Dean was a narc himself, but he was a skilled performer who responded differently to each singing partner. With Corden, it’s always the same old shit. He might have been singing in a vacuum.

          Hmm. Now I think of it, what clips I’ve seen of Harry’s Wife, she’s acting in a vacuum. It’s not just the narcissism, because there are plenty of skilled narc performers. Maybe school and cadre are involved? Or maybe talent is independent of narciness. John Lennon had all the qualities of a Lesser, but wrote great music. And we all know nice people who have no talent at all.

          1. Asp Emp says:

            I’d suggest that it is not misunderstanding the context or anything like that. There is no substance to James Corden, he just annoys the hell out of some people and the ‘roasting’ he got was just sublime.

            I read your comment about Harry’s wife “lending” her coat to someone to keep their baby warm. Interesting to read you suggest it being a response of cognitive empathy. I don’t know if you are aware that Prince Charles lent his coat to a soap star because it was cold outside. Was Harry’s wife copying Prince Charles? If she was, this indicates that she does ‘follow’ what family members are doing. You raised a valid point – why a young baby is at a very public event while the mother is “working”. Harry’s wife didn’t have to carry the coat either. “Win-win” for HW, the narcissist 😉

    This series is amazing, it is so hard to believe he actually knows what he’s doing, and still he does it! Just unbelievable. Thank you for these HG.

    1. HG Tudor says:

      You are welcome, I am pleased you are embracing them.

  7. In so many words says:

    HG, Your series on world leaders is a great addition to your legacy. May not get the number of view that celebrity videos do, but critical to our collective knowledge. Fascinating to learn about Boris Johnson. I couldn’t understand why he was acting against the economic interests of the UK; now it makes sense. Thank you.
