Bob, a 50-year old college professor, sought treatment only after urging from his wife. During the interview, Bob’s wife noted that he seemed so focused on himself and his own advancement that he often belittled others. Bob was dismissive of these concerns stating that he had never been the sort of person to tolerate idiots, and he could see no reason why he should begin offering such tolerance now- in rapid-fire, he described his supervisor, his students, his parents, and a set of former friends as lacking the intelligence to merit his friendship. He willingly acknowledged working long hours but stated that his research had the potential to change peoples’ lives and that other activities could not be allowed to interviews with his success. The therapist’s gentle questioning of whether his expressions of superiority might provoke some interpersonal tension was met with a scathing rebuke.
