The nonplussed fabric of intellect is at inchoate state. any panache will be indefatigable unmartinate by the hoi polloi.
It also couldn't come at a better time (literally, it's an enormous synchronicity) with my own internal battles to cut the last psychopath out of my own life.

All psychopaths are narcissists, and most narcissists are psychopaths. I think the problem in distinguishing between them is because even the "experts" keep changing the "definitions and criteria." I've lived with both, and I believe they are different. A psychopath is seriously lacking any kind of remorse, even hidden or suppressed remorse- they are merciless and calculating. Narcissism on the other hand has an entire range, both in how mild/extreme they are, as well as a range of reasons that can justify a lot of empathy (towards them) to none at all. An extreme narcissist with no excuse to justify their lack of empathy IMO is simply a psychopath. But someone who is very hurt, very alone, or seriously traumatized or emotionally damaged can also be "narcissistic" as a way to cover up the hurt- but without taking deliberate and glib advantage of others. They just kinda do it as it comes along- it's more pitiful than anything.
