To all beware and take care.

The essential feature of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and lack of empathy that begins by early adulthood and is present in a variety of contexts as indicated by five or more of the following:

1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance, exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements.
2.Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance or ideal love.
3.Believes that he or she is special and can be only understood by or should associate with other special or high status people or insitutuions. Name dropping is an example of this.
4.Requires excessive admiration
5.Has a sense of entitlement, unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.
6.Is interpersonally exploitative, taking advantage of others to meet his or her own needs.
7.Lacks empathy, is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
8.Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her
9.Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.

Those with narcissistic personalities require excessive admiration and in general their self-esteem is very fragile. They may compare themselves to others and they may also fish for compliments.

Vulnerability in self-esteem makes these individuals very sensitive to criticism or defeat. Although, they may not outwardly show it, criticism may haunt them and leave them feeling hollow.

Such experiences may lead to social withdrawl or and appearance of humility to mask and protect their grandiosity.

Sustained feelings of humiliation coupled with self-criticism may lead to social withdrawl, deprssed mood and major depression.

Grace and Peace,

Karoline

Karoline~

You didn't tell me you knew my ex-husband. OMG hahahahaha.

I'm printing this one out and using it for wallpaper in my house so I reminded of it daily.

I really like reading this stuff, I never knew they actually had a name and a description that descibes my ex to a tee. It's pretty scarey that it's such a perfect match.

Thanks for the info....Be well.

OK. This one pegs my guy!

Severe depression and false humility. His self-esteem is so fragile he may never recover.

Gotta go to the business dinner. Don't they know that these dinners are a pain?!?!?!

Let's see, Elvira has 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 to the max. She also has big chunks of 1 and 3. And, I suspect that 2 is a big part of her life.

She needs to work on her humility. Try as she might, it comes off as way too phony. But, don't dare criticize her. She will act like the world is coming to an end.

Gosh ... it looks like she is perfect.

Yes...Karoline, that is a great post here, hope someone here (one this very thread )sees it(rereads it) and learns from it, and educates herself. I am leaving as well, funny cause most naracistics don't even become offended whan its in their face, they can never see what is really going on, and we just seen it on this thread too, denial is a strong defense mechanism, take care Karoline, i had enjoyed meeting you.
