Take him as a near psychopathic, utterly self-involved, impulsive, reactive child, with severe oppositional defiant disorder and significant Obsessive-Compulsive disorder, with delusions of grandeur that are near-psychotic, a bottomless pit of need for praise and admiration, and a nihilistic recklessness to destroy the world to be right. Like that.
