    Let;s take a test

    How about it. Jelly, Max, ejohns, think, mero, angelico, bucket, batzem, jimpolak. Instead of this board being a support group for the financially challenged. I suggest we take my test. It seems that everyday the same group gets the same brain farts. I believe you're the same person. You believe that bucket and I are the same person. So let's find out.

    But in 3 years of me asking for a simple test to put this to rest, the sybils have run away from it. Instead everyday they wake up with a new brainfart. In years past, they barely could crawl out of bed, they complained daily that astex was headed no where. At $2, I pointed out how this stock had potential. Not one of these idiots saw any of it. Then the stock pops and the same idiots, were all giddy. Proclaiming $9 on the way.

    To show how smart these guys are, they are the same group that bought astex originally for $20. Their own words. They average down and then average down and average down, till they ran out of money. They need a miracle to crawl out from under this. They want no one pointing out any of the pitfalls here. This same group, watched this stock crash three times now. each time they were the same persons spouting off that wonderful things were in the cards. They don't ever mention burn, timelines,dilution. However they have experienced this stuff three times now.

    At two dollars they had these concerns at $5 they forget all about it. I'm on record to buy this stock at $2 and keep buying it. I'm on record to sell at $6.90. Their on record of not seeing anything positive at $2 and at $6.90, that the stock was headed to $9. Must be nice to be an idiot with numerous id's all wrong, all the time.

    Well rory had to distort, jelly had to distort, batzem had to distort. Because if they don't distort, then they have to face reality. That they suck at investing. Their recommendations would have cost you every penny you own. following any of them.

    • Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder[1] in which the individual is described as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity. This condition affects one percent of the population.[2][3] First formulated in 1968, it was historically called megalomania, and is severe egocentrism.
      The use of the term "narcissism" to describe excessive vanity and self-centeredness predates by many years the modern medical classification of narcissistic personality disorder. The condition was named after a mythological Greek youth named Narcissus who became infatuated with his own reflection in a lake. He did not realize at first that it was his own reflection, but when he did, he died out of grief for having fallen in love with someone that did not exist outside of himself. Although this may not be the only version of the myth, it is one of the more popular ones.
      The term "narcissistic personality structure" was introduced by Kernberg in 1967[4] and "narcissistic personality disorder" first proposed by
      Symptoms of this disorder, as defined by the DSM-IV-TR include:[1]

      • Expects to be recognized as superior and special, without superior accomplishments
      • Expects constant attention, admiration and positive reinforcement from others
      • Envies others and believes others envy him/her
      • Is preoccupied with thoughts and fantasies of great success, enormous attractiveness, power, intelligence
      • Lacks the ability to empathize with the feelings or desires of others
      • Is arrogant in attitudes and behavior
      • Has expectations of special treatment that are unrealistic
      Per the Mayo Clinic, narcissistic personality disorder is characterized by dramatic, emotional behavior, which is in the same category as antisocial and borderline personality disorders.[7]
      Narcissistic personality disorder symptoms may include:
      • Believing that you're better than others
      • Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
      • Exaggerating your achievements or talents
      • Expecting constant praise and admiration
      • Believing that you're special and acting accordingly
      • Failing to recognize other people's emotions and feelings
      • Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
      • Taking advantage of others
      • Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
      • Being jealous of others
      • Believing that others are jealous of you
      • Trouble keeping healthy relationships
      • Setting unrealistic goals
      • Being easily hurt and rejected
      • Having a fragile self-esteem
      • Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional
      In addition to these symptoms, the person may display arrogance, show superiority, and seek power.[8] The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder can be similar to the traits of individuals with strong self-esteem and confidence; differentiation occurs when the underlying psychological structures of these traits are considered pathological. Narcissists have such an elevated sense of self-worth that they value themselves as inherently better than others, when in reality they have a fragile self-esteem, 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. It is this tendency that is characteristic of narcissism as opposed to other psychological conditions affecting level of self-worth.[9]
      In children, inflated self-views and grandiose feelings, which are characteristics of narcissism, are part of the normal self-development. Children typically cannot understand the difference between their actual and their ideal self, which causes an unrealistic perception of the self. After about age 8, views of the self, both positive and negative, begin to develop based on comparisons of peers, and become more realistic. Two factors that cause self-view to remain unrealistic are dysfunctional interactions with parents that can be either excessive attention or a lack thereof. The child will either compensate for lack of attention or act in terms of unrealistic self-perception.[10]
      The Childhood Narcissism Scale (CNS) measurements concluded that narcissistic children seek to impress others and gain admiration but do not have any interest in creating sincere friendships. Pathological lies and interpersonal exploitation are hallmarks of narcissism. CNS researchers have measured that childhood narcissism has become more prevalent in Western society; any types of activities that focus on overly praising the individual can raise narcissistic levels. More research is needed to find the reasons that promote or protect against narcissism.[10]
