Narcissism is categorized as a personality disorder by the mental health profession. It is referred to as NPD or Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Few are ever diagnosed because few go to therapy. Narcissism is not high self-esteem, but a condition where the typical narcissist suffers from
- Preoccupation with hiding real or perceived flaws
- Overestimation of importance, achievements, talents and skills
- Maladaptive attention seeking behavior
- Inability to empathize with others
- Excessive anger and shame in response to criticism often resulting in rage
The narcissist will often manipulate others, especially partners, to control them. Projection and blame are hallmarks of this manipulation. It is estimated that 85% of narcissists are males.
TIP: Don’t enrage the narcissist in your life. He or she will make you pay. Stay calm and plan your exit. Don’t give in to ‘letting it all out’. Narcissists don’t forget and they like revenge (ATTACKING FOX NEWS). Your ‘outing’ of him or her adds to his narcissistic injury. A narcissist needs to look good in front of others and you gain nothing by proving he is not the best, smartest, wealthiest, most capable person he wants to be seen as.
HOW TO LEAVE
If narcissistic personality disorder or other emotional abusers are ruining your life, take action. The narcissist does not get better, but you can. Many people are both afraid to leave and afraid to stay thinking they are alone and nothing can be done (liberal media).
If you ever felt your voice was drowned out and no one is listening to you and that your story is important and needs to be told, I strongly recommend doing something about it. VOTE THESE COMMUNIST OUT OF OFFICE IN 2010!!
