Trump has been accused of being a narcissist who is incapable of expressing emotion, but a new study suggests that his tweets are often just that: tweets.
Researchers from Columbia University and Yale University conducted a study of Trump tweets and found that they often express emotions that can be described as “flattering” and “positive.”
“It’s kind of the opposite of the Trump effect,” says David Fathi, an assistant professor of communication at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
“There are many people who have been exposed to Trump, and they’re going to think, ‘I don’t get that.
I don’t see that.
That’s not how it’s supposed to work.'”
According to Fathi and the researchers, Trump’s tweets often express feelings that are just as “positive” and positive as their sentiments are “flattered.”
“He makes the most of the people he meets and has the best rapport with,” Fathi says.
“There are people in his life who are quite nice to him and people who are not.
I think there’s a real disconnect there.
They just don’t have the same level of emotional connection to him.”
According to a press release from Columbia, the study “found that, as expected, positive feelings were shared more often than negative ones, but that Trump’s words were more likely to be interpreted as flattery or flattering.”
The researchers conducted an analysis of more than 11,000 tweets from Trump’s account that included a caption that read, “Trump is a great leader.
I am grateful for his leadership and wish him success.”
The results were published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.
“He is very sensitive to the emotions of others and can be very difficult to empathize with,” the press release states.
“This makes it hard for him to communicate his own emotions to other people.
This could be because of the need to avoid being perceived as insensitive to others, or because of his tendency to express himself with hyperbole and exaggeration.”
Fathi believes that Trump is not only prone to making poor decisions and making poor statements, but also that he lacks empathy for people who don’t fit his mold.
“It doesn’t take much to understand that Trump can be a narcissian, a manipulative person,” he says.
Fathi says that people who spend a lot of time in Trump’s life will likely be attracted to him.
“I think he’s a very appealing personality,” Fathi says.
“He’s not just the president.
He’s a president who likes to talk to the world.
He likes to play golf.
He has a beautiful wife.
He enjoys going to his golf courses.”
Fathi points to another recent study of his.
He says that researchers who study narcissists find that they can become more adept at manipulating people than other types of narcissists.
“Narcissists are able to create a sense of power and control in their lives, so that they are able, by the use of a mask, to create an aura of control over others,” Fathani says, referring to a technique that many psychologists use.
“They can do this by taking the personality traits of their victim, and then manipulating their emotions and feelings through the use or overuse of the traits of the victim.”
The study concluded that narcissists can be seen as being “successful in their manipulation of others,” although Fathi thinks the study was “a bit of a stretch.”
“The fact that they could manipulate others, as opposed to the fact that people are not willing to be manipulated, is interesting,” he notes.
“It shows that there’s still a need for psychopathy in people, and it’s important to think about the need for empathy when we use the word psychopath.”
