The Trickster Archetype.

This represents the shadow of the emotionally mutilated who convinces one to believe that you're the only one who suffers. In this self pity one begins to victimize everyone around by interrupting any situation where one's not the center of attention with a “poor me" story. Empathy for others is only displayed from the perspective of how it has affected his own emotional being.

This one's a tough archetype to eradicate; it plagues many families and society, blinding it's members who won't recognize that their suffering and refusal to expose the trickster, has turned to egoism.
