The 8th Deadly Sin

November 7, 2014 Leave a comment

Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?

Lust
Gluttony
Avarice
Sloth
Wrath
Envy
Pride

I would add ‘Narcissism’ to this list.  I cannot stand people who have no empathy towards others.  A narcissistic person always feels grandiose and self-important. They  feel that they are always right or must have the last word in any discussion or argument. 

They love to show their possessions and exaggerate their achievements to the point of lying.  They expect others to kowtow to them or be obsequious. 

They are convinced that they are special or elitist and will only associate with people of high status in society.

They are authoritative and expect everyone to confirm to their beliefs and opinions and cannot stand people doing things different from them.

When someone disagrees with them they are easily irritated and can throw tantrums and stop associating with you.
