Narcissistic Personality Disorder is probably one of the most undiagnosed and untreated mental illnesses. I feel that we are in an age of rampant narcissism and depression and anxiety. I am related to a narcissist, and the traits outlined below describe her to a tee. If you are fortunate enough to be a happy well adjusted individual, be thankful, and have sympathy and compassion for the sea of troubled humanity that surrounds you. Unfortunately, those people haven’t yet discovered the secret. Keep calm and karma on!
Narcissists hide in plain sight. They can be cunning and charming. Most of the time you can’t spot a narcissist unless you get to know their motives. Narcissists are dangerous master manipulators.
How to Spot a Narcissist
Narcissists are self focused. – Narcissists always think of themselves first and don’t care about the feeling and comfort of others. They tell stories about themselves. Often the stories will paint the narcissist as either a hero or a victim. The narcissist is never wrong and they always paint themselves in a positive light.
Gaslighting – Narcissists are master manipulators. Gaslighting is emotional abuse. A narcissistic partner may that causes you to question your own instincts, judgement, and even sanity. A narcissist wants the power to control you. When you lose your ability to trust in your own perceptions, it becomes easy for the narcissist to get you to do the things they want.
Narcissists play the victim.
