Card Catalog: 30 Notecards from the Library of Congress by NOT A BOOKThis author was created to segregate those items which have ISBNs but are not actually books. For more information, see the manual and/or start a thread in the Librarians Group.
When an item which is not a book is imported via ISBN into Goodreads, it does no good to delete it: the item will only be re-imported as long as it remains on the feeder site. (Often these are book-related items which are assigned ISBNs by book publishers so that they can be tracked through their book systems.)
These items should be transferred to the “author” NOT A BOOK. This can be done by editing the individual book record and replacing the existing primary author with the author NOT A BOOK, or, if all of the items on an authors list are not books, the author can be edited and merged entirely into NOT A BOOK.
In the case of items currently credited to an author who is a member of the Goodreads Author program, proceed extremely carefully and contact the author for clarification if there is any question regarding the status of an item as a book, particularly in the case of calendars, workbooks, or blank books with additional content.

Narcissists who love animals and their mothers.
Begin typing to search. Sound like you or someone you know? Read on:. Narcissists love two things: themselves, and anything that could be used as extensions of themselves. What better self-extension than a cute and adorable furry thing that will love you back unconditionally? Do you express love for your pet in a way that might look to others like evidence of an overly narcissistic lean within your personality?
I read a scientific journal this week about narcissism and pet owners and I was fascinated by it. It was so true it made me shiver. Narcissism among pet owners is something I have seen and experienced too many times to count. The author, a scientist who studied the way pet owners talked about their dogs and cats and lizards and fish, how they would lapse into a narcissistic state and speak of their own animals regardless of whether the people listening cared or were attentive. The term was inspired by the young Narcissus , who fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Ironically, it is not the pet owners who are in love with themselves, the are in love with their dogs and cats, their images always reflected.
Some narcissists, though lacking empathy for other people, seem to have it in spades for animals. Even some psychopathic malignant narcissists are actually very good with non-human creatures. My ex is one of these. He cried like a baby when our dog, Daisy, died of a massive stroke in early He was always very kind to her and the cats.
May 9, There is a misconception about narcissists that says they're way too into Do you express love for your pet in a way that might look to others.

Fight to the Finish
Narcissists who love pets more than people
Say it cannot be! Narcissism affects e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away there lived a narcissist. His name was Speedy and he had a troubled relationship with dogs. It bit him. He got so mad he bit it back.
If you've ever had a partner who flirted with other people right in front of you, chatted up attractive strangers and tried to make you feel like you couldn't measure up, well, maybe you were dating a narcissist. New research suggests that people who have a high level of narcissistic traits strategically induce jealousy in their mates as a way to meet certain goals: Control, in some cases, or a boost in their self-esteem. Psychological research suggests that narcissistic personalities fall into two categories. The first is grandiose narcissism, marked by entitlement, extroversion and high self-esteem. Grandiose narcissists are very self-assured, Tortoriello told Live Science. The second category, vulnerable narcissism, describes people who are similarly entitled and willing to exploit people to get what they want. But vulnerable narcissists have an "inherent fragility," Tortoriello said.
Scientists have developed and validated a new method to identify which people are narcissistic: just ask them. In a series of 11 experiments involving more than 2, people of all ages, the researchers found they could reliably identify narcissistic people by asking them this exact question including the note :. To what extent do you agree with this statement: "I am a narcissist. Results showed that people's answer to this question lined up very closely with several other validated measures of narcissism, including the widely used Narcissistic Personality Inventory. You can ask them directly because they don't see narcissism as a negative quality -- they believe they are superior to other people and are fine with saying that publicly. Understanding narcissism has many implications for society that extend beyond the impact on the individual narcissist's life, Konrath said. Those who think they are already great don't try to improve themselves," Bushman said.
