I suppose some people respond well to a confident, charismatic therapist who sort of tells them how it is.

    In my experience, however, most psychodynamic therapists are pretty warm and caring, and not necessarily arrogant at all. The attitude isn't really that I can fix YOU because YOU are inferior, so much as it is an acceptance that EVERYONE has motivations and drives that aren't accessible to them. Those sort of therapists form a relationship that is more collaborative with the patient (e.g. things aren't working out for you etc, let's work together and explore why). So the theory isn't that an analyst is better than you and is a wise man who can cast out your demons, all the theory says is that we all have parts of ourselves that we ourselves cannot see, or at least see clearly.

    I wouldn't argue that the Freudian unconscious exists per se, but just an interesting aside that the field that really has demonstrated the power of the unconscious the most has been social psychology, and the study of implicit attitudes. Fascinating stuff!
    You're way too reasonable. It sort of pisses me off. It's more satisfying when internet avatars stomp their feet and get pissy when questioned. Oh, I see. You know EXACTLY what you're doing, don't you? GET OUT OF MY HEAD!!!!!!!!!11

    22 here.

    Interestingly though, when I read the traits of narcissists on the all-knowing Wiki, I exhibit very few of them.

    I take this to mean I am the exception to the rule. I know how fucking awesome I am and unlike other losers who just think they're awesome, I'm actually right. lol.

    I love Mommy so much. She fed me almost every day when I was a kid. She still makes sure I brush my teeth three times a day and protects me from all those sinful jezebels.

    I scored 28. Just thought you should all know my score and marvel at how high my score is compared to your score.

    I may be a narcissist but at least I'm not you.
