What is narccisistic personality disorder?

My cousin was just diagnosed with this disorder.


Answer by  timeismoney (994)

Someone with a narcissistic personality disorder is extremely self-absorbed and carries a sense of entitlement, often relatively disinterested in others. This type of person has a high sense of personal worth and expects others to share this view. A fragile self-esteem may underlie this outward demeanor, and narcissistic rage may result from someone challenging the inflated self-perception.

Your cousin has difficulty empathizing with other people. They are unable to fully comprehend their actions as they relate to other people, and are focused solely on themselves. In severe cases, they view other people simply as things that exist only for the purpose of their amusement, or to serve them.

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental condition in which there is an elevated sense of self-importance and an intese preoccupation with one's self. Personality disorders tend to be harder to treat than other types of psychological disorders.

Narccisistic personality disorder is the one which is a state of showing excessive admiration of one's own body and the person concerned very greatly interested in his own perfections. He remains self-concentrated and never bothers about the other family members. He puts all the attention and timing on himself and himself only.

It's defined in the US as "a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a lack of empathy." It usually means the person is self-centered and does not understand that other people matter too. It's quite difficult to treat.

This is a very serious diagnosis. People with this disorder are not capable of more complex human emotions such as empathy, love and guilt. People with this disorder are dangerous and only concerned with themselves.

This disorder has many characteristics, but someone does not need every characteristic to be diagnosed with the disorder. Overall, the person thinks they are better than everyone else, to the extreme, and does not have much regard for others and their feelings.

Narcissism involves a singular focus on the self at the expense of others. Narcissists often think they are better than others and that the "rules" don't apply to them.
