Narcissistic personality disorder

According to DSM IV-TR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) criteria and taken from Wikipedia,

A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:[1]
  1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance
    Which gets translated to an inordinate amount of budget being allocated to offices with plus chairs and secretaries. Not to forget bookshelves that typically gets stocked with books that you don't read, and folders that are really empty.

  2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love (megalomania)
    Seriously, this is beyond me.... :p

  3. Believes they are "special" and can only be understood by, or should associate with, people (or institutions) who are also "special" or of high status
    A general manager should never seek advise from a senior manager, should never seek advice from a manager and so forth...

  4. Requires excessive admiration
    It's your birthday, and you're wondering where's the gift baskets from your staff and the vendors.

  5. Has a sense of entitlement
    If the managerial office in Tower 2 is larger than Tower 1, it'll potentially appear in next week's Management Minutes

  6. Is interpersonally exploitative
    When management suddenly asks you out for lunch... be wary... be extremely wary.

  7. Lacks empathy
    Calling your staff at 3am in the morning and asking him to drive 200km to the data center on a Christmas Saturday makes perfect sense.

  8. Is often envious of others or believes others are envious of him or her
    Let's be honest now, your day gets ruin should you notice that your staff has a notebook with better specs.

  9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
    Really? Me? I'm always patient and humble towards everyone that I deal with.
There's also a certain pattern that I noticed, Dark Managers with this sickness tends to be short ~ Napoleon Syndrome perhaps? More importantly, they typically don't get promoted any higher up in the food chain and retires as a Manager or if they're lucky a Senior Manager.

Lastly, the worst of the lot are Senior Executives that never makes Manager. Personally, someone should shove em to a loony bin and throw away the keys; and these people supports my case on the uselessness of psychometric tests to weed out these individuals...

Personal opinion is generally exhibited in various types
of editorial writings. As a matter of fact, there are some news stories that have made such a strong impact on the society that some of them have even won accolades.
They also tend to endear themselves to populations in times of severe duress and hardship by well funded relief efforts and other charitable initiatives, which make them look incredibly social compared to corrupted governments.

The growth in the circulation of newspapers in the country results in the overall economic prosperity of the
country, inspiring it to higher levels. Newspapers internationally are becoming more than ever like a television
network providing current breaking news stories.

There was a point when I was single that I used to judge people I dated by
whether they liked cats or not. The benefits of
having high thread count sheets is that mills are forced to create much
finer threads in order to increase the amount of threads in a square inch (keeping in
mind that they don't also increase the ply). It ends when God kills thousands of His Chosen People with a plague (love those germs) and an earthquake (shake, rattle and roll) as punishment for rumblings in the ranks. They also delight in the creativity provided by the activities. Finer threads usually result in a much smoother and softer fabric.
