@EricTrommater A boss or two! Blatant favoritism. She once got a 4/5 on a yearly review! The article quoted a board member as saying that she had done "excellent" and was "one of the best." Faculty and staff laughed. Since when is an 80% (We all must use the same grading scale) more than a B-? That's not excellent in anyone's academic grade book.
Lots of people seem like narcissists to me. I also might be one. People seem to only give a shit about their own lives or well-being. They mostly have personal life goals, not macro social goals. But then again people think I'm self-absorbed because I criticize this way of life and think that my interests are really what's important (politics, philosophy, morality, etc.). But this was after a life of being criticized myself for my own way of life and thinking.
