A year later, he branched off on his own, steadily the length of his motorcycle jumps until, on New Year's Day 1968, he was nearly killed when he jumped 151 feet across the fountains in front of Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas.

He or she tries to make you feel that you are wrong for your feelings or your position.
This is another narcissistic trait: the belief that only his or her feelings and opinions are valid, and that differences pose a threat.

Knievel decided to retire after a jump in the winter of 1976 in which he was again seriously injured.

He began his daredevil career in 1965, when he formed a troupe called Evel Knievel's Motorcycle Daredevils, a touring show in which he performed stunts such as riding through fire walls, jumping over live rattlesnakes and mountain lions, and being towed at 200 mph behind dragsters.
