    Ok, I just posted this in another thread, but I figure it would be good for a new thread. I pulled the classic signs of a narcissist from Wikipedia (ya, I know Wikipedia sucks) and it is amazing how these traits fit Howard to a T. Take a look:

    - An obvious self-focus in interpersonal exchanges
    - Problems in sustaining satisfying relationships
    - A lack of psychological awareness (see insight in psychology and psychiatry, egosyntonic)
    - Difficulty with empathy
    - Problems distinguishing the self from others (see narcissism and boundaries)
    - Hypersensitivity to any insults or imagined insults (see criticism and narcissists, narcissistic rage and narcissistic injury)
    - Vulnerability to shame rather than guilt
    - Haughty body language
    - Flattery towards people who admire and affirm them (narcissistic supply)
    - Detesting those who do not admire them (narcissistic abuse)
    - Using other people without considering the cost of doing so
    - Pretending to be more important than they really are
    - Bragging (subtly but persistently) and exaggerating their achievements
    - Claiming to be an "expert" at many things
    - Inability to view the world from the perspective of other people
    - Denial of remorse and gratitude

    Can anyone find any of these traits that Howard doesn't show? I am stumped to find one.
