Back in 2018 when my Doctor first told me the word Narcissism, it didn’t really make much sense to me, as I never heard it before. According to my journal from the time, my doctor said that after reading the 107 page statement of facts they used for Human Rights, he noticed the gradoisity being displayed within this document. Kory Read’s document was all about how perfect tenants they are who did no wrong and they made it sound like they did nothing to cause them to be evicted. They are emotional vampires!
The “it appears” , “it seems” words in front of every sentence where they give their speculations on my actions, or anyone’s, was a dead giveaway! It is followed by showing Grandiosity, which is an exaggerated sense of one’s importance, power, knowledge, or identity, even if there is little evidence to support the beliefs.
Kory Read shows he believes his opinions are more important than anyone else’s, even the person he is writing about! He thinks his “knowledge” over me and what I do, is all true and he truly believes he has the power to influence people in my life, even writing anonymously! Kory Read goes out of his way to gloat to me in email about how his children will “become Doctors and more productive in society”,as if that is the be all and end all of life, the title you have in your career!
Kory Read always has expressed his beliefs that everyone is jealous of them and what they have, claiming I wanted to get into their apartment to see what “possessions” they have and implied their belongings are so impressive that I would want to steal them. All these comments made by Kory & Allison Read show these traits of narcissism below, you can’t miss it.
Only an arrogant person would believe his anonymous words on a website in the personal name of the target within the contents, would be accepted as the truth. Evidence suggests it is not. People who write as a Anonymous person, are not generally believed, as no one trusts the words of someone who hides his identity. Writing anonymously gives you the sense this writer don’t want to be associated with the contents of these domains, as they know what they are doing is wrong and they don’t want people to say anything to them about it. Which is also why they hide any way to contact them too!
The main thing tho that led me to accept and believe that Kory & Allison Read are Narcissistic, was the comparisons they constantly made, not just of me, but also of themselves with others. They spent 14 pages hyping up the comparison of myself and Mark Meadows! What was that? We all know what it means to compare people!
At the bottom of every page of their sites, you will see comments like these I copied below.
Will Stella Reddy search for us again? YEAP!!! But that is okay, we enjoy this game of cat and mouse with her and her husband. We enjoy owning Stella Reddy and having them devote their entire days, weeks, months, years, and literally their lives to us. Stella Reddy goes to bed thinking about us, and wakes up thinking about us, and that is good enough for us.
Our lives are solely about our children becoming doctors and being more productive in society, more than Stella Reddy and her family have nor ever will be able to. Racism, unfortunately, will always exist because Caucasians like Stella reddy and her enabler husband can not stand the idea that a Black female is more successful than they are, or ever will be. It is such as shame that they live their lives competing with others.
These comments show me that Kory & Allison Read are grandiose!
When I saw the comment about “owning Stella Reddy” it struck me and I had to look it up. With this sentence, Kory Read tells you he truly believes he has defeated me and is more successful than I am or “will ever be” as he claims. Kory Read tells you he is grandiose in this sentence, no two ways about it, he always gives himself away!
What does owning someone mean? to defeat someone completely or be much better than him or her; to perform extremely well
It took time, but I started to see these traits within their writings. The ability they have to pretend to be a doctor and claim I am “fake” and have “imaginary” issues was also another giveaway for Narcissism. This shows such lack of empathy, you can’t miss it. Kory Read constantly degrades my version of events, even when I express my own feelings, Kory Read is there to tell you I am lying about them. Kory Read thinks he is the authority on my life, me, and my motives, hey? Yet, how could that be even possible? it isn’t!
Kory Read still to this day, made claims to know what my life is all about. On his new post, that is now deleted but was saved by me, shows him implying I was cheating on my hubby. What type of person writes things like that about someone else and posts it online like he did?
It isn’t the first time Kory Read made implications like that about me and my marriage. My opinions is that It shows his jealousy over my relationship with my husband and makes me think that there are issues within their own! Kory Read projects remember? All the comments about my marriage and cheating can only come from experience of someone who did it!! Does Kory Read cheat on his wife? It wouldn’t surprise me as he don’t work, he depends on his wife to work to pay the bills, he said so, so he can stay home with his teenage kids who still need supervision of a parent! As he claims, he was moving to be with his daughter while she goes to medical school. Of course, Kory Read will follow his children around, he wants to keep control of their lives! So many young adults go away from their parents to go to school, yet Kory Read made the point to state they were all moving as she is too young to be without supervision. That is the clear statement of a controlling person!
As copied above, Kory & Allison Read have stated they ENJOY doing this to me. “we enjoy this game of cat and mouse with her and her husband.” Kory Read shows true Narcissism with this sentence, as it shows such arrogance and controlling nature. Playing with people’s lives is not a game! This sentence shows so much about Kory Read’s true personality!
To these people, it is a GAME to play with someone’s life in this manner. Nothing else shows the traits of Narcissism, as described in this article below, more than these comments written BY THEM!
Coming to these realizations took time, and even longer, to accept. I had such a hard time accepting that people could be so very deliberately cruel, like they were showing in their domains contents. I just couldn’t believe there were such mean people out there who totally ignores the facts and make up their such outlandish stories about other people and shares it online. I know now though and I will never be susceptible ever again to their tactics.
I have no doubts anymore of Kory & Allison Read’s Narcissistic Traits they show within all their writings, in what I got and online in their domains. This is why their Smear Campaign is now starting to backfire and the domains are slowly disappearing from the internet, as readers are seeing it too!!
DSM-5 Category: Personality Disorders
Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), a cluster B personality disorder, is considered to be one of the least identified personality disorders (Pies, 2011). On the other hand, a good number of patients with narcissistic traits present at the psychiatrist’s office with other types of issues such as anxiety or depression. A common finding in clinical practice, NPD frequently coexists with other psychiatric disorders. NPD is a relatively recent diagnostic category. Its origins stem from a great effort between psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists to recognize a cluster of predominantly difficult patients who could not be classified as psychotic, not typically neurotic and overall not responsive to conventional psycho therapeutic treatment options (Gildersleeve, 2012).
NPD appears to be more widespread in males than females for unknown reasons. In the past there has been some speculation that the limited spotlight on grandiosity likely adds to the extensive discrepancy that is seen with small NPD prevalence rates in epidemiological research and elevated occurrences of NPD seen in clinical practice (Campbell, Miller, & Widiger, 2010).
The most important characteristics of NPD are grandiosity, seeking excessive admiration, and a lack of empathy (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013). These identifying features can result in a negative impact on an individual’s interpersonal affairs and life general. In most cases, on the exterior, these patients act with an air of right and control, dismissing others, and frequently showcasing condescending or denigrating attitudes. Nevertheless, internally, these patients battle with strong feelings of low self esteem issues and inadequacy. Even though the typical NPD patient may achieve great achievements, ultimately their functioning in society can be affected as these characteristics interfere with both personal and professional relationships. A large part of this is as result of the NPD patient being incapable of receiving disapproval or rebuff of any kind, in addition to the fact that the NPD patient typically exhibits lack of empathy and overall disrespect for others.
Symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder
The definition of NPD states that it comprises of a persistent manner of grandiosity, a continuous desire for admiration, along with a lack of empathy. It starts by early adulthood and occurs in a range of situations, as signified by the existence of any 5 of the next 9 standards (American Psychiatric Association, 2013):
- A grandiose logic of self-importance
- A fixation with fantasies of infinite success, control, brilliance, beauty, or idyllic love
- A credence that he or she is extraordinary and exceptional and can only be understood by, or should connect with, other extraordinary or important people or institutions
- A desire for unwarranted admiration
- A sense of entitlement
- Interpersonally oppressive behavior
- No form of empathy
- Resentment of others or a conviction that others are resentful of him or her
- A display of egotistical and conceited behaviors or attitudes
Another model, characterizes NPD as having fair or superior impairment in personality functioning, apparent by characteristic troubles in at least 2 of the following 4 areas (American Psychiatric Association, 2013):
No actual physical characteristics are seen with NPD, but patients may have concurrent substance abuse, which may be seen in the clinical examination.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder is more prevalent in males, with about 18 percent of males presenting with NPD, compared to six percent of females (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013). Within the general population, the prevalence rate is less than one percent, yet within the clinical population, this number rises to about 2 to 16 percent.
NPD has similar characteristics with the other 3 cluster B personality disorders, and thus should be differentiated accordingly. These are Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), Borderline personality disorder (BPD) and Histrionic personality disorder (HPD). Additionally individuals with NPD may also meet the definition for also having axis I disorder, or exhibits features that similar to axis I disorders (CITE).
While no particular laboratory tests help with the diagnosis of NPD, a urine toxicology screen may be important to exclude substance abuse such as alcohol and drugs as likely reasons of the pathology.
Several comorbid disorders occur with NPD, with the most common being major depressive disorder, seen in about 45 to 50 percent of NPD patients (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013). Bipolar disorder presents in 5 to 11 percent of NPD patients (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013). On the other hand, the most prevalent comorbidity seen is that of substance abuse. Approximately 24 to 64.2 percent of NPD patients have substance abuse disorders (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013).
Ironically patients with NPD, also known as narcissists are reportedly happier than others in society. Being highly materialistic, self-enhancing, entitled and impulsive, they may not learn from mistakes, and have a tendency to get into even greater trouble, notably legal and disciplinary (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013). These maladaptive coping mechanisms can result in issues in the work place or in school, or unemployment.
Patients with NPD tend to be drawn to people of a high societal class, who think very highly of them (Campbell, Miller, & Widiger, 2010). The constant desire for admiration may cause romantic relationships to be short lived, as they constantly seek for something better, or when their lack of empathy becomes apparent to their partners (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013). So patients with NPD may exhibit an unforgiving nature and showcase anger and aggression in such close relationships (Ronningstam & Weinberg, 2013). This can also affect work relationships or any close group activities.
