Omar Azaitar, to "torso" and through

By flooding his Instagram account with shirtless photos, Omar Azaitar has chosen a sexualized communication to garner likes and comments but not only. There are those who have very strict dress codes, but Abu Bakr’s twin seems to have none since he takes his top off half the time and takes pleasure in this outfit. Like Narcissus staring at his reflection in the water until he drowned there, the leader of the Azaitar siblings, who boasts of a certain proximity to the royal palace, shows us almost everything, almost all the time, borderline in permanence. The improbable quickdraw, he pushes the bad taste far.

In this virtual world that makes us fake, our societies have never been so narcissistic. To show everyone how exhilarating our life is or how strong, recognized or famous we are, nothing better than a selfie and if, a few years ago, it could still surprise or shock, no one emphasizes anymore the sickness of these behaviors, especially when they are so repetitive. Only psychotherapists, who pull their hair out over stories, seek to understand what such postures translate on social networks.

To be or not to be

For many, to exist is to be on the Web and not just the generations fed on the Net. The psychologist Sabrina Philippe dismantles in her book “Tous Fake Self” the mechanisms of this virtual world which deforms us. To observe the particular use that Omar Azaitar makes of his body on his Instagram account, there is no doubt that it would have been an ideal field of observation to understand the springs.

To Omar at the beach, Omar at the swimming pool or even Omar at the gym, are added a whole series of situations in which the absence of clothes refers us to Sigmund Freud’s famous “ideal self” and his definition of narcissists whose first characteristic is to consider themselves very important people. Their bodily postures are never more than the reflection of the feelings that collide in their brains, with the desire to give the sensation of an ultra virile character, all in biceps. In short, the rendering would be a symbol of superiority, masculinity and virility.

A contemporary Narcissus fascinated by himself

In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and Psychiatric Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association, the symptoms of pathological narcissism revealed by the publications of Abu Bakr’s twin, now 36 years old, indicate to us “a pattern persistent grandiosity, need for admiration and lack of empathy […] an obsession with fantasy, success, influence and power […]a need to be admired unconditionally, an exploitation of others to achieve their [ses] own goals. Sabrina Philippe also explains that the more an individual activates his fake self, the more he pours into “a pathological narcissism on the web”.

Fascinating and maddening at the same time because we are here faced with a very enlightening personality disorder on the behavior of the Azaitar clan as a whole, given the use that each of the 4 brothers who make up the siblings makes of social networks.

A posture that goes beyond the “because I’m worth it” of self-love

This narcissistic personality disorder would make those who are struck by it manifest an excessive need to be noticed.

Thus, Omar, the forms inflated with creatine, connects the poses when he drives a racing car at high speed with his bare chest, in front of his mirror, the telephone in his hand, in a zoo, with friends or even while riding a motorbike.

Any opportunity is good to puff out your chest, however absurd it may be, to establish yourself as an alpha male.
Like any narcissistic person, Omar Azaitar seeks gratification within himself, focused on his search for prestige and power. Decked out with two brothers who have made a career in MMA, it was undoubtedly a way for him to find his place, to make a name for himself, even if it means jostling and taking off his top more often than his brothers to make himself to remark.

This quest of his has a name: egocentrism. Bring everything back to yourself, focus on your own interests, consider your opinion as the only one that should count and above all, be convinced of being the person to follow and admire.

An excessive sense of self-importance

Half naked on social networks, Omar Azaitar seems convinced that he can freely deliver his truth, without being contradicted and without worrying about the judgment of others. Over time, he learned to focus enough on his representation to think he would like it and garner the maximum number of likes and followers to constantly reinvent his story. There is no honesty in his approach because the impact of the discrepancy between his material reality and what he wishes to convey in the virtual world is glaring.

We will retain only one episode to illustrate the idea that there are indeed two spheres to form the “fake self” dear to Sabrina Philippe.

Envy others or think others envy you

Last March, during the inauguration in the marina of Salé of the business of the siblings called “Chérie, Chéri”, Omar Azaitar publishes a story in which we can see three young girls leaning against the pink luxury vehicle parked in front of the café which is a shisha bar. Commenting in German on this story, Abu Bakr’s twin said: “These people don’t even have an armchair in their house and allow themselves to sit on my car.”

His car is far more important than those young girls. These young girls are nothing, they represent nothing and are much less valuable than Omar Azaitar’s car. He who obviously does not say at any time how he acquired this luxury car, nor by what means he was able to open these three businesses in the marina of Salé, vomits on these young Moroccan women not because they are much less well off than him. but because he feels eminently superior and tends to value only those whose stature and power surpass him.

Omar Azaitar shirtless: stop or in “body”?

This episode is an illustration of the disorders specific to narcissistic individuals and Omar Azaitar presents at least five of the following symptoms, again according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: the person has a grandiose sense of his own importance and overestimates his achievements and abilities , she is absorbed in fantasies of unlimited success, power, splendor, beauty, perfection, or ideal love.

She gets angry easily when her wants or needs are not met, she thinks she is “special” and unique and can only be accepted or understood by “important” people, as special as herself. She shows an excessive need to be admired, thinks that everything is due to her: expects without reason to benefit from a particularly favorable treatment and that her desires are automatically satisfied.

It exploits the other in interpersonal relationships: uses others to achieve its own ends: lies, blackmail, verbal abuse, etc. She lacks empathy, envies others or believes others envy her, hides information from others to achieve her ends, and ultimately exhibits arrogant and haughty attitudes and behaviors.

A ticking time bomb under a bunch of muscles

“They say the artist is the one who uses lies to tell the truth,” writes Sharon Jones in her famous best seller “Burn After Writing”. She questions honesty and invites us to formalize it in a journal around our favorite subject: ourselves. We would offer a copy to Omar Azaitar if it could help him stop feeding exclusively on the image he thinks he is projecting, trying to convince himself that he is beyond reproach. The fact is that the criminal record of the one who was nicknamed the gangster à la Ferrari, does not allow him all the audacity.

But like any good narcissist, his greatest fear is losing face, failing, or feeling humiliated. His criminal exploits tell us that he will stop at nothing to consolidate his sense of power and keep the status and privileges he believes are due to him.
A real ticking time bomb.
