I am not sure they have quite taken over the world but there are many who seek power and control that's for sure.
This has been the position for hundreds of years. The church controlled society and the state to the detriment of many. All for their own personal feed and greed with no conscience -- at the expense of the quality of life and sometimes life and mental health of the ordinary person.

Narcissists feed on power and control so bringing down your mood provides this fuel for them. They also have chronic low self esteem so if they keep you down then they feel less threatened.

One of their main objectives is to destabilise you. This way they get to keep control, instil fear and get a feed. They can achieve this in many ways.

In my work I have found that personalities with mild ADHD type traits tend to become successful in sales. Their persuasive nature make them successful in this and many other careers that require creative out of the box thinking and influencing.

In my experience as a systemic psychotherapist I have worked with victims of organisational bullying. I also have worked as a leadership trainer in various organisations and have sadly seen that narcissistic dynamics do and are allowed to thrive to the detriment of the mental health of many employees and the performance of many organisations.

Limiting finances is a regular pattern of the narcissist. It feeds their need for power and control. It also satisfies their need to see their ex partners general freedom and choices diminished so they can have control over their partner/expartner. Particularly so if the partner asserts themselves in the interest of fairness or neccissity.

Neuro-difference

Do Helping Professionals and Educationalists (including parents) understand the prevalence of undiagnosed ADHD, ASPERGERS, ASD and its link with mental health issues?

In my work as a systemic psychotherapist and therapeutic supervisor in Dublin I have noticed a pattern regarding clients. It is my experience that at least one in every three/four adolescent and adult clients who present with severe anxiety, depression, chronic low self-esteem and addiction appear to be neuro different, are struggling and are unaware why they might find integrating with people, managing tasks or performing in certain academic subjects or tasks difficult if not impossible.

Would it be helpful to our clients if we were more aware of the possible need for early medical or neurological intervention?
Could we as psychotherapists and those of us in the helping professions be at risk of trying to get the client to fit into ‘our theory of thought’, thus causing us to overlook signs and symptoms that do not coincide with our belief systems.
