Theodore Millon, a Student of Personality, Dies at 85

Theodore Millon, a Student of Personality, Dies at 85 | Personality | Scoop.it
Dr. Millon was a crucial figure in shaping the understanding of personality disorders, and a self-described exemplar of “secure narcissism.”
Sandeep Gautam's insight:

Dr. Millon, he wrote of himself, was distinguished from many others in the book “by the fact that he appears, contrawise, to be invariably buoyant, if not jovial. Critics are not invariably enamored, however, finding his work to be, at times, too speculative, his writing unduly imaginative, and his creativity overly expansive.”
RIP Dr. Millon
