from the article..
"..so-called self-esteem movement may have been completely wrong in saying that a person who doesn't love herself or himself can't successfully love others."

Well, I think there is some truth to the self-esteem thing. I mean, without it you can't 'give' in a relationship - you generally lack what it takes. Also, you're more than likely to fall into that catch-phrase of the nineties; co-dependancy.

Maybe if one cannot think well of themselves then, what/how would they think/act when it comes to another person?

I think these researchers don't have a clue about true self-esteem. In my opinion, narcissists do not have self-esteem, because it involves seeing yourself, warts and all, and accepting and loving yourself. The narcissists are just desperately seeking life to their own advantage, and refuse to see their own faults.
