How is narcissism different from a narcissistic personality disorder?
The major distinction between them is that a narcissistic person is not mentally ill. They do not have a personality disorder. Instead, they are simply interested in getting money and power.
NPD usually develops in adulthood. Diagnosing this problem is a challenge, because the person who has it won’t acknowledge they need help. It goes against their self-image.
1. Pretentious and Boastful
People with NPD always try to one-up you. You have a story to tell? They’ll tell one that’s bigger and better than yours.
2. Unfulfilling relationships
Relationships are challenging for people with NPD. That’s because they’re so focused on themselves, they have little to no room for empathy towards their partner.
3. Unhappiness when things don’t go your way
We all get disappointed when things don’t go as we planned. But if you’re a narcissist, you’ll feel angry and confused when things don’t go your way. Narcissists just want control over the situation. If their plan fails, they begin acting as if they’ve lost all control over their life.
4. Ongoing issues
With a narcissist, the problems just never stop. Because of their inability to keep the peace with people, they eventually back themselves into a corner.
5. Inflated sense of self-importance and entitlement
People with NPD have an exaggerated sense of self-worth. They think they’re better than all of us. Everyone around them should cater to their desires. This leads them to act entitled.
6. Need for constant admiration and praise
This feeling of superiority makes them want to be admired by the people around them.
Narcissists exaggerate their importance. This is how they get people to admire them. They don’t shy away from tooting their own horn. You may also find them exaggerating their achievements and talent.
