    Listeners know that Howard has always lacked the ability to analyze other people’s emotions and relationships objectively. As a narcissist, his pop-psychology usually just boils down to him projecting his own feelings onto others.


    For example: Howard is jealous of everyone who receives money/ attention/ fame, so he assumes everyone else must be jealous of his money/ attention/ fame. Howard spends every waking moment thinking about himself, so he assumes everyone else must be spending every waking moment thinking about him.


    Now, let’s go back a couple weeks, and look at Howard’s “expert opinion” on Benjy/ Elisa’s relationship. Starts around 23 mins:





    As a self-involved narcissist, Howard is INCAPABLE of “really figuring out” another person’s emotional situation. After years of therapy, he is barely aware of HIS OWN emotions, so he just assumes that everyone else must feel the same.


    Translation:

    Howard is so in love with himself, there's not much room for anyone else.

    He abandoned his kids, his dog, his parents in an ice storm, and yes....even his goddamned tropical fish. Is that whore too dumb to realize she could be yesterday's news too? BEEEEE........WARE!

    anytime someone on the show brings up a hypothetical Howard has to make a big announcement about how he loves his wife and wants to spend every waking minute with her.....yet she sleeps downstairs and is always out of town for T-Shirt shop openings

    They lost me at "Elisa is so Hot". I really don't get this. She looks like a middle-aged Long Island hen w chicken legs.

    Then again, the majority of women that Howard always thought were perfect 10's were only 5's on my scale.

    Did this literally happen, or metaphorically?

    on a hundred occasions, Howard has stated that he is not capable of emotional and/or physical love, his "love" is stylized for public consumption...
