What's Wrong With Tod Maffin (?)

We're unable to find anywhere on the internet that Tod Maffin comes clean about his vague "health issues".
The ones he's always working on but is never able to resolve.

The words "depression" and "addiction" crop up, but it's hard to think of him in terms of either of those afflictions.

Tod appears to be not all that different from the rest of us, particularly as we all suffer from one common ailment to some extent:


* Overreacts to criticism, becoming angry or humiliated
* Uses others to reach goals
* Exaggerates own importance
* Entertains unrealistic fantasies about achievements, power, beauty, intelligence or romance
* Has unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment
* Seeks constant attention and positive reinforcement from others
* Is easily jealous
* Has a sense of entitlement
* Is exploitative of others
* Lacks empathy
* Displays arrogant and proud behavior
* Displays haughty behavior
* Uses denial mechanism to downplay own inadequacies or failings
* Uses rationalization mechanism to justify self-centered behavior

We can easily see ourselves as having some of those characteristics.
But like almost everything else in life, Tod is way ahead of us.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
