A narcissistic person, who lacks self-respect and confidence in his own self talks like this:
"Who do people say I am?"
And instead of telling people, who he was, he says, "I am he" to everything.
You will find that the character BJ is a PSYCHOPATH mainly due to his apparently illegitimate "birth"…so a “god” was born?
1. Having a convicted father or mother (accused by all and sundry and sundry as a loose woman; worse than conviction),
2. Physical neglect of the boy (not easy when parents had problems, no record of his life for many years),
3. Low involvement of the father with the boy (Poor Joseph felt very self conscious about everything that was going on. BJ was not interested in him either),
4. Low family income (hard working poor carpenter and a wandering disinterested son),
5. Coming from disrupted family (Naughty ghost made a complete mess of everything).
6. Poor supervision (they lost him & found him doing “father’s” business!),
7. Harsh discipline (life under Jewish law would have been very harsh)
8. Delinquent sibling (read the gospels!),
9. Young mother (they don’t come any younger than that!)
10. Depressed mother (under lot of pressure vilified, ignored),
11. Low social class, and
12. Poor housing.(stable!)
- Glibness/superficial charm (chatting up lonely women offering tadpole water)
- Grandiose sense of self-worth (good lord….i am he!!!)
- Pathological lying ( I am this/that, your sins are forgiven, today you enter heaven with me, peter the rock, I am a good “dead” shepherd, or am I a gate? Son of man on clouds and hundreds more unfulfilled!!!)
- Cunning/manipulative ( made sure the Jews got the blame for his death, blaming others when chips are down, getting clowns to steal donkeys, sell underpants to buy swords and then ditching them saying “live by sword? Then die!!)
- Lack of remorse or guilt – He insults others including hosts, sthe world owed him a favour?
- Emotionally shallow - Simply had no feelings
- Callous/lack of empathy – no affection or link with anybody. Always insulting others. Even mother gets insulted many times. No respect for others.
- Failure to accept responsibility for own actions – made many cock ups and the poor disciples got the blame or the Pharisees or even a fig tree!!
- Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom – so did the stupidest of things on earth!
Parasitic lifestyle – didn’t do a days work. Just sponging off others and insulting them
Lack of realistic, long-term goals- keeps changing his mind. Nothing real. All unverified nonsense
Impulsiveness- Fetch me two donkeys!
Irresponsibility – drop the swords you bad boys…I have nothing to do with telling you to get sword. Always landing everybody in sht!
Poor behavioral controls- Need we say anything?lol.
Early behavioral problems – insulting mum and dad!
Juvenile delinquency – where the hell was he most of the time?
Criminal versatility – just look at the Bs he was coming up with!
Machiavellian egocentricity- absolutely!! I AM the man!
Rebellious nonconformity – Need we say more?
Blame externalization – Absolutely!!
Carefree nonplanfulness – Worse than Foggy Clegg and Compo!
Coldheartedness – He showed no heart at all besides crying and screaming so he could save himself. All the others were bad only he was a goody boy!
Superficial charm and good "intelligence" – To con the ignorant peasant fishermen!
Unreliability – He almost always let them down or ditched them or landed them in mess
Untruthfulness and insincerity – read the rubbish attributed to him!
Lack of remorse and shame - absoluitely
Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior
Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience – so very true!! Ends up on a pole
Pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love – he hated most and always me..me ..me!
