This narrative not only examines the life and psychology of Donald Trump, but will also provide an analysis of the charismatic psychological tie between Trump and his supporters. While there are many books on Donald Trump, there has been no rigorous psychological portrait by a psychiatrist who specializes in political personality profiling. As the founding director of the CIA’s Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior, Dr. Post has created profiles of world leaders for the use of American presidents during historic events. As once stated by Jane Mayer of The New Yorker, who characterized Dr. Post as “a pioneer in the field of political personality profiling,” “he may be the only psychiatrist who has specialized in the self-esteem problems of both Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.” In this new book, the psychiatrist who once served under five American presidents applies his expertise to profiling the current resident in the White House, with surprising and revelatory results.

    Two things caught my eye on this one having had over 18 yrs experience in dealing with a malignant narcissist myself having been married to one for 11 of those years with three kids together and they were : "This narrative not only examines the life and psychology of Donald Trump, but will also provide an analysis of the charismatic psychological tie between Trump and his supporters and As the founding director of the CIA’s Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior, Dr. Post Two things caught my eye on this one having had over 18 yrs experience in dealing with a malignant narcissist myself having been married to one for 11 of those years with three kids together and they were : "This narrative not only examines the life and psychology of Donald Trump, but will also provide an analysis of the charismatic psychological tie between Trump and his supporters and As the founding director of the CIA’s Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior, Dr. Post has created profiles of world leaders for the use of American presidents during historic events 'a pioneer in the field of political personality profiling,' 'he may be the only psychiatrist who has specialized in the self-esteem problems of both Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.'" This information coupled with the normal gradiation of personality trait disorders in depth anaylsis is why I picked this up. There comes a time when the enablers, the flying monkeys, the hard chore die hard supporters must face reality and stop living a life of denial, blame, and shame. What you see is what you get and I can't be any less clear in that diagnosis. While you cannot diagnose from afar according to the Goldwater Rule I'm damn sure you can be open and receptive to the truths that surround you. The trail of destruction, the devalue, the discard, the god like leader to all, it's all very dangerous. The Us v Them mentality is creating division among us all. The manipulation, the grandiose ego, the obnoxious non intellectual conversations, the feeling that he's above the law is not what our forefounders imagined in our highest office of the land. Regardless of political views these narcs will have you forget what you've ever been told. They will use their charm, their devotion to a cause which is the ONE, the magnetic persona, the loner abandoned wo wis me personality to make you feel empathy for them. Don't be fooled it's a trap. Malignant narcs are all about vanity , the me syndrome, the only one they care for is themselves. With all due respect everyone has a price, everyone is disposable, and no more so than in the eyes of a malignant narc. You only hold value if you can provide a source of supply, a sense of loyalty, a form of benefit, an ideal of valuation to the master. If you go along to get along you'll do well but never upset the apple cart, never ask questions, never try to be an independent voice among the masses or you'll be struck down. Narcs are competitive they seek to win at all costs, even if they lose they will twist the facts to fit their agenda. Folks I know how this story ends. I've lived it and I wish to God those who believe in the lies, the brain washing, the temper tantrums, the projectory, the mirroring, the emotional blackmail would understand this is not a behavioral issue but a personality trait disorder based on the DSM Manual. You cannot fix it alone. You cannot ignore the problems. You cannot turn a blind eye and hope for hopes sake it ends well. We have a saying it's an empty bottomless pit of nothingness for a reason. These narcs cannot be pleased. You can give your entire self completely and lose yourself in the process and they will walk away without a moment's hesitation. The wives, the children, the family members are secondary not primary in their lives. There's no love, no commitment, nothing but appearance sake for how you shall look to attract more followers and create a likeable image. It's about how one sells themselves...It's all about being a con man. A jekyll and hyde and I can't stress that enough. I understand the middle class worker wants recognition, they want improvements, they want a leader they can trust but this is not your man. Check reality and check accomplishments and you'll see the high turnover, the lack of control, the lack of respect from our allies, the lack of intellect, the bullying nature, the disgusting need for attention and spotlighting. You don't need to go far to see his selling points have yet to hit their mark. MAGA is nothing more than a sales pitch that's failed miserably. I've yet to meet a narc that's financially stable, that can operate normally w/o a fight or flight response upon their victims, a person of this magnitude that's well respected in their career or by those who know them best. Talk to those they left behind, the ex partners, the ex co workers, the ex friends they all have something in common. This much negative cannot be positive. For those who think he's playing others, he's getting what he came for, he's riding high it's a farse from a false sense of self. He's not fooling those who lived it. He's not fooling those who live with anxiety and fear and trepidation because of his actions , thoughts, mannerisms, and failure to keep America safe. It's a choice that must be made in 2020 and I hope you see through the smoke, fog, and mirrors. The Lost Self Life After Narcissism is my page on FB if you care to join me there along with 40k across 45 countries worldwide .

    This was a really informative book about Trump and his followers. The author wrote about the psychological reasons why his followers are so loyal and goes into detail about Trump's narcissism. This book truly shows how much of a hold Trump has over his loyal followers.

    I started this book out of curiosity. I’m a psychology major and was genuinely curious about what a reputable psychiatrist might say about our president and “his followers”. Post makes so many wild assumptions and conclusions based on the weakest of evidence. The blanket statements abound; a no no for any good mental health professional. I wouldn’t trust any of his analysis after reading this. It really is just an opinion piece with very little substance. He is a very good writer though, I started this book out of curiosity.

    Profiles not only Trump, but all the major political players, from Putin and Kim Jong-un to Trump's kids. Profiles his followers in groups: evangelicals to white nationalists to farmers (some overlap there). Fascinating and frightening book. He gives advice about what we might be able to do to intervene if Trump is voted out but refuses to leave. He polled some experts and the average odds for that scenario were 35%. Chilling.

    Review based on writing alone (I.e., not politics): Half-baked. Could have been an article. Needs a copy edit.

    The author of Dangerous Charisma is an expert of political personality profiling. He ran a pilot CIA program to profile world leaders including Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat at the height of President Carter’s search for peace in the Middle East. However, since Dangerous Charisma is about the most controversial President ever, Donald Trump, I can tell how you will rate it based on your party affiliation. Democrats will love it. Republicans will hate it. So if you are Republican move on and read The author of Dangerous Charisma is an expert of political personality profiling. He ran a pilot CIA program to profile world leaders including Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat at the height of President Carter’s search for peace in the Middle East. However, since Dangerous Charisma is about the most controversial President ever, Donald Trump, I can tell how you will rate it based on your party affiliation. Democrats will love it. Republicans will hate it. So if you are Republican move on and read Piety and Power about Mike Pence or Witch Hunt about Trump himself. There are books on each side of the aisle and actually the Pence book is very good. Now, back to the Democrats. I don’t think calling Trump narcissistic or “mirror hungry” is particularly new. You hear it multiple times per day on MSNBC. That being said, it is new to wrap these issues in the official psychological jargon from the DSM, the manual to diagnose behavioral disease. Plus there are some great talking points for cocktail parties like that Citizen Kane is Donald’s favorite movie, which is about an unhappy wealthy narcissist much like Trump himself. I enjoyed the look at the psychological underpinnings of Trump’s diehard supporters. It states that in times of stress, like being unemployed and seeing all their nearby factories close, leaves people looking for a voice in the wilderness stating follow me to the promised land where America is great again. Obviously, if you are a Trump supporter, you are not going to like hearing yourself characterized in this manner. You could be comfortably reading the Art of the Deal again and now you are so upset that you are planning on trolling me on social media. I’m just repeating what the author is saying. Please troll someone closer to the source material. Speaking of the book, despite being a lifelong Democrat that held her nose while voting for Hillary in 2016, I don’t think Dangerous Charisma Is very good. It won’t change anyone’s mind and instead will just drive our fractured political system further apart. It also reads like an undergrad textbook. However, the cogent summary of the Trump presidency’s effects on the public’s mental health, strategies of the Democratic Party, and the United States’ ongoing foreign policy pulls my rating up to 3 stars. Thanks to Pegasus Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

    The title of Jerrold Post, MD and Stephanie Doucette’s book, “Dangerous Charisma:The Political Psychology of Donald Trump and His Followers,” intrigued me. Given Dr. Post’s background as a 21 year veteran of the CIA with a specialty in political personal profiling I was expecting for a deep and revealing exploration.

Given Dr. Post’s background as a 21 year veteran of the CIA with a specialty in political personal profiling I was expecting for a deep and revealing exploration. Broken into three multiple chaptered sections: I) The Charismatic Leader, II) The Political Psychology of Trump’s Followers, and III) Trump’s Impact; the book is organized well and written in a highly readable fashion. The first section is quite good in establishing: the topic of ‘personal political psychology;’ what charismatic leaders and how they arise developmentally; and how Donald Trump’s family, upbringing and adult life fit within this rubric. Dr. Post raises the classic psychology/psychiatric diagnosis issue of the ‘Goldwater Rule’ - the American Psychiatric Associations prohibition on making diagnosis at a distance of public figures, and makes it clear that despite this rule he feels compelled to use his expertise to comment on our 45th President. My expectations were still quite high. But then the second section fell completely flat. It was chuck full of disturbing facts about the President (and his followers), but with the exception of utilizing the Presidents own books and written word (which few others have done effectively), there is little new information here that hasn’t been covered multiple times in other works. Insights into the President’s psychological profile is not particularly insightful not deep, leaving me wanting much more. Surprisingly the authors don’t even refer to other mental health professionals who have more significantly broken with the Goldwater rule to provide insights about the President (e.g., Dr. Brandy Lee’s “ The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” and Justin Frank’s “Trump on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President”). This is a huge oversight that could have strengthened the authors discussion. Unfortunately both of the books cited here are more insightful than Post and Doucette’s book. The last section of the book is decent, maybe stronger then the section section but not as strong as the first. Moreover, the books conclusions are flat feeling to this reviewer. Overall a decent book, easy engaging read, but not a lot of new stuff, despite the promise of more. 3 of 5 stars.

    This was pretty disappointing. The main reason I picked this up is because it promised a psychiatric analysis of Trump. I was curious to read an evaluation from a professional psychiatrist. Jerrold Post touts his background as someone who was relied upon by presidents to psychologically evaluate people for the CIA, but he seems to utilize precious little of that expertise in this book. The vast majority of the book's 16 chapters just regurgitates well known news articles without presenting anything This was pretty disappointing.

The vast majority of the book's 16 chapters just regurgitates well known news articles without presenting anything new. The one aspect that I thought was interesting was Post's emphasis on "The Charismatic Leader-Follower Relationship". I think that's an important point. Trump's followers are just as important as Trump and it's clear they have some kind of Symbiotic relationship. But as I said, the rest of the book didn't really seem to present anything new.
