Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Narcissistic personality disorder is an illness where, if you suffer from it, you will feel a long-standing feeling of grandiosity, a need for attention and a lack of empathy for others. You may put forth a snobbish, disdainful or patronising attitude. You are likely to overvalue your accomplishments, and have an extreme desire for attention and admiration.

Narcissists are preoccupied with fantasies of success, wealth, power, esteem or ideal love. You aren’t likely to accept criticism with grace, and you are likely to overreact.

Sometimes, if you have this personality disorder, you are admired and envied by others, as they believe the mask that you projects outward. However, this is not enough, as an individual with narcissistic personality disorder is extremely attention seeking.

However, if you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may often envy the success of other people, since you believe that they deserve it more. You would have fragile self-esteem, and be prone to depression, rejection, interpersonal problems and problems with employment.

It is thought that narcissistic personality disorder is caused by negative early childhood experiences. Those with narcissistic personality disorder often have narcissistic parents themselves. A narcissist is often criticised for their fears, failures or needs for dependency. Thus you grow up with contempt for these behaviours in yourself and others.
