They soon find that they can manipulate their parents and others by acting. With this foundation, they embark on the path of wearing all kinds of disguises and masks in order to get anything they want, especially from persons who have love-hunger and seek to please to get it. They become incredibly selfish, unfeeling, and expert manipulators." Implications of her Childhood Regina's Issues Public display of grandiose sex appeal

Cheats on Aron with Shane Omen Movie Plot Regina and her group of plastics befriend a new student named Cady. Due to her infamous title as queen bee, the whole relationship was a scam as Cady was only friends with her posy as a ploy to get back at Regina stealing Aron Samuels from her.

When Regina discovers this, she is in such a furry she publish the Burn Book. To avoid suspicion, Regina also inserts a fake slander of herself in the book in order to focus blame on Cady, Gretchen, and Karen. Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which the individual is described as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity.
Regina has displayed actions of:
Taking advantage of others to reach her own goals
Exaggerating her own importance, achievements, and talents
Imagining unrealistic fantasies of success, beauty, power, intelligence, or romance
Requiring constant attention and positive reinforcement from others
Becoming jealous easily
Lacking empathy and disregarding the feelings of others
Being obsessed with oneself
Pursuing mainly selfish goals Narcissists have such an elevated sense of self-worth that they value themselves as inherently better than others. Yet, they have a fragile self-esteem and cannot handle criticism, and will often try to compensate for this inner fragility by belittling or disparaging others in an attempt to validate their own self-worth. -Regina was brought up super-pampered. Being brought up without negative consequences for being selfish and hurtful created a social monster. We call them brats, but this is “Brat-Supreme.” She knows little about respecting other’s personal boundaries. She believes she is God. Her Ego knows no bounds in grandiosity.
-Also due to her neglectful father and vapid mother she never formed healthy predictable relationships.
-Praised for perceived exceptional looks or by her Mother
-Valued by parents as a means to regulate their own self-esteem
Most psychiatrists will, as a practical matter, treat most of their severely narcissistic patients for
symptoms related to crises and relatively external Axis I diagnoses, rather than in an effort to address
the personality disorder itself. The therapist must be aware of the importance of narcissism to the
contiguity of the patient's psyche, refrain from confronting the need for self-aggrandizement, and
help the patient use his or her narcissistic characteristics to reconstitute an intact self-image
-Cognitive behavioral therapy: In general, cognitive behavioral therapy helps you identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviors and replace them with healthy, positive ones. Care should be taken to
present the positive attributes of the individual in the more realistic context of their everyday lives
in order to preserve their self-image and avoid the feeling that their entire life has been a fantasy. Case Study Regina's Narcissism at Work Mr. L is a 26-year-old third-year medical student who has been suffering from depression and anxiety for several years and is currently engaged in psychotherapy. Mr. L is an overachiever who has always excelled academically—he was at the top of his class at Princeton, received a Rhodes scholarship to study at Oxford, and was granted admission to many of the nation's best medical schools. In addition to his academic accomplishments, Mr. L prides himself on his physical appearance and considers himself to be much better looking than his medical school peers.
During his first therapy session with the psychiatrist, Mr. L brings in a copy of his curriculum vitae as well as copies of his medical school essays and insists that the psychiatrist read these before beginning the session. He states with a small chuckle, "I'm different than most of your clients." In addition, Mr. L asks the psychiatrist, "Exactly how long have you been doing this? You look really young, like you could be my age. I took quite a few advanced courses in psychology at Princeton. Where did you go to medical school again?"
During subsequent sessions, Mr. L talks at length about his disdain for his medical school professors, classmates, and the medical school curriculum in general. He feels that many of his professors are “not that bright” and that their understanding of fundamental medical concepts is cursory at best.Socially, Mr. L has very few close friends and believes that this is because he doesn't meet people who are up to his high intellectual and physical standards. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1519417-overview
