Psychiatrist Declares Self-Victimhood to be a Personality Type, Obsessed with Grievance and Vengeance

Yes, this seems right.

Self-Victimhood Is a Personality Type, Researchers Find

People who suffer from a "tendency for interpersonal victimhood" present themselves as weak, hurt, and vengeful.

Let me just stop right there:

Stalkers likewise present themselves as weak and hurt and therefore entitled to get vengeance.

And let me note that SJWs are almost all stalkers.

Many social commentators have argued that an emerging "victimhood culture" incentivizes people to see themselves as weak, traumatized, and aggrieved. In higher education, this has been associated with increased demands for specific accommodations like trigger warnings (which don't work) and the policing of microaggressions (which is ill-conceived).

But what if this is not merely a trend but an entire personality type? A new paper in the scientific journal Personality and Individual Differences posits a Tendency for Interpersonal Victimhood (TIV), an archetype defined by several truly toxic traits: a pathological need for recognition, a difficulty empathizing with others, feelings of moral superiority, and, importantly, a thirst for vengeance.

"The findings...suggest that victimhood is a stable and meaningful personality tendency," write the study's authors, a quartet of scholars associated with Tel Aviv University, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the University of Pennsylvania.


...

TIV [the Tendency towards Interpersonal Victimhood] was also "associated with an increased experience of negative emotions, and entitlement to immoral behavior."

You mean -- Twitter?! The Forum for the Mentally Ill and Unappeasably Angry (TM)?

The study distinguishes TIV from narcissism. Narcissistic individuals also experience moral superiority and vengeful desires, but these feelings tend to spring from the belief that their authority, capability, or grandiosity is being undermined. TIV, on the other hand, is associated with low self-esteem. And while narcissists do not want to be victimized, high-TIV individuals lash out when their victimhood is questioned.

To be honest, I think there's a huge amount of overlap.

And it must be pointed out that there are many, many people who suffer from a truly toxic and insane mixture of low self esteem with enormous, delusional levels of unwarranted high self esteem. (See Fredo Cuomo and Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin and everyone at CNN, for example.)

And they react crazily whenever their very fragile and very unstable and unsupportable delusions of grandeur are chipped or cracked.

Someone with a large, but stable, ego will just walk away from someone who insults them, thinking (or saying) "you're beneath me, you mean nothing to me, and your opinion means less."

But someone with the toxic combination of low self-esteem and completely unwarranted high self-esteem will stalk, threaten, coerce, and blackmail a critic until they deliver the demanded validation and renounce any prior suggestion that the Low Self-Esteem/Delusionary High Self- Esteem Psychopath is not the Bestest Ever.

They don't care if they have to blackmail/coerce the validation -- they're validation vampires. They're Social Predators. As long as they get the validation, they don't care that it was gotten through threats.

They're mentally ill, unaccomplished SJW losers seeking vengeance on the world because they're not special or even average in any way.

But otherwise: Spot-on!
