What do narcissists dream about?
Narcissists are individuals with unique characteristics and personalities, just like everyone else. Although a person who has been diagnosed as a narcissist will meet specific clinical criteria, it would not be possible to say that all narcissists have only certain types of dreams. The dreams of any individual are unique to that individual and as unlimited as that person's imagination.
Unlimited success, fame and power. All day everyday. They also try to act out these fantasies and make them into a reality to obtain even more narcissistic supply. These fantasies help reduce the feelings of inferiority, shame and doubt about themselves. Eventually they will believe these fantasies are their destinies until they grow older and realize they are not as amazing as they thought they would be. Grandiosity Gap

Of course. It is not the denying of one's being narcissistic that makes one narcissistic. Narcissism is the pattern of traits and behaviors which involve infatuation and obses…sion with one's self to the exclusion of others and the egotistic and ruthless pursuit of one's gratification, dominance and ambition. In everyday use outside the field of psychology, the word generally refers to people who just are inordinately fond of themselves, without the pathological connotations. You can go to wikipedia for more information. Answer Yes, but when they do admit it, they won't see it as a "bad" thing. In fact, they might feel glorified in their admitted narcissism.
Answer Yes, Narcissists believe they are superior being. They demand constant positive attention and motivation. Their subconscience allows them to believe they are better th…an their peers. They exaggerate their achievements and goals in order to receive admiration and praise. They don't like second place because in the narcissists mind, that means losing. The dreams of a narcissist are far more vivid and occur quite often. This coming from a self-aware narcissist
Answer . You didn't say if they were just dreams or haunting nightmares. Narcissists are controlling and also brain-wash their victims. It took you a long time to be brain-…washed and controlled so it's going to take awhile before you realize you are rid of this useless piece of hide. You have been use to living under his rules and now that you are free you are not quite confident right now but will be in the future. It's wise to get some counseling for this. Narcissists do more damage to their mate then the mate can ever imagine.. I practice Cognitive Therapy and here's a couple of good hints. Concentrate on the good things in your life and watch only funny movies or read fun books. Often sleeping with the TV on and a good funny DVD playing low as you fall asleep with help you feel much better as you are sleeping (your mind will pick up bits and pieces of the funny movie) and the dreams will disappear. Envelope yourself with up-beat friends and go out and have some much needed laughs. In time you will trust men again and be a little more wiser as to who you choose the next time around.. Humans dream every 1/2 hour and often we don't remember them, but when stressed out or coming from a stressful situation one can dream or even have nightmares. It's our brains way of coping with things (it's normal although annoying.) If we didn't dream we'd go crazy from every day stress. When your life starts to change (and it soon will) the dreams will stop.. Good luck hon. Answer . After awhile, the dreams become a habit. If you can, whenever you think of him during the day, make yourself stop. Do something else entirely--some people snap a rubber band, think of a flower, keep a focal point on something else. Anything to keep your mind off of that subject. Your dreams should be lessened as you do other things with your mind during the day. However, sometimes dreams have something to tell us and you might write them down a few times to see if you can discern anything that can help. Often the person in my dreams happens to say just what I need to hear to solve my dilemma. Don't worry; these dreams will fade over time as you become engrossed in your life and times.
Answer Someone who worships him or her self. everything revols around you, everythign you do is for your own good and use Narcissism is the practice of displaying (among oth…ers);- grandiosity (superiority,) entitlement, competitiveness and envy, lack of empathy (understanding and considering others,) shallow affect (vague or superficial feelings and emotions,) Lack of insight or self-awareness (never considers that attitudes/behaviour may be unhealthy to self or others,) Poor impulse control (cannot resist urges especially destructive ones and especially when angry,) manipulative behaviour. When these behaviours go to extremes (and are displayed over a significat period of time) a medical diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) may be made. Many people may display some (or all) of these traits without having the disorder, on fact most of us display these from time to time. It is logical to say that the more of these traits displayed and the more frequently they are displayed then the more narcissitic that person may be.

A narcissist (from character in the Greek mythology, Narcissus) is someone who seeks pleasure only for themselves.
This happens a lot as narcissists choose narsissitic mates muchof the time. They deal with each other the same way they deal witheveryone else and they form a sick and twisted… relationship that'sbound to have its share of pain and suffering. The kids are at riskespecially since they are cut off from any potential of having agood parent, unless the kids are taken from them. Watching 2 narcissists fight could be very interesting, evenammusing if you realized what was going on. You could bet money onwhich one would outsmart or outmanipulate the other. . A narc cannot play another narc. It's like a user can't use auser. They know who they can suck dry and who they can't.
Generally, no. Narcissistic behavior is draw to others that will listen - not talk about themselves as well. There are always exceptions if there is attraction that overwhelms… a mental disorder.
They are born that way. A narcissist is just a milder form of a psychopath, they can feel shame and guilt but that is all. You will know when you have been around a narcissi…st because you will feel used abused and robbed. Read all you can on this horrific disorder.
You can't make a narcissist acknowledge their personality defect. They wouldn't believe you. They wouldn't care. The very aspects of their personality would make your efforts …futile. It is extremely unlikely that you could make them change. The best thing you can do is to learn more about narcissism. First, you should read up on the disorder. There are dozens of good websites sponsored by well known hospitals and other respected institutions that sponsor web pages devoted to narcissism and narcissistic personality disorder. If you have a good understanding of narcissism you will have the knowledge to deal with it more constructively. Here are a few pointers: . keep your distance- don't get too close and do not let them into your personal life . be practical about the disorder- you won't change them so step back whenever their narcissistic behavior rises to the surface . define some limits- by not responding to inappropriate behavior you reinforce it . avoid conflict . do not try to argue or reason with them- your winning or convincing is counter to their world view- they will not allow it . gain more understanding to enable you to work as constructively as possible . give practical support when and if they ask for it
People who have been bought up by a narcissist are usually isolated (on purpose) This stops them from being able to find support. Or even clarity to see they are in an unhealt…hy relationship. Quite often the victims have been demonised by the narcissist behind their backs so it can be hard to find someone to believe them. They have also been conditioned by the narc to accept the violence as normal. Once you can achieve some distance from the narc abuser, you are able to see the blatant manipulations, lies and lack of emotional content, you will see their own interests and greed come first. They are unfixable. Do not waste your life on these people. They are inferior to people who have genuine compassion and empathy.
Generally, that won't work due to the very nature of the personality disorder. Narcissists are not open to criticism, even constructive criticism. Individuals with narcissi…stic personality disorder are typically unwilling or unable to acknowledge their disorder. Although some may recognize the difficulty they have in their relationships with other people, they blame others for those problems. They are typically unable to modify their behavior. They have a conviction that they can do no wrong. One of the striking hallmarks of NPD is the utter lack of self awareness. They often have a defective ability to interprete other people's speech and actions which leads them to think they are liked and respected and the world agrees with their inflated sense of self. Many do not recognize that they have a problem at all. If they do suspect they have a problem they are more likely to step up their self defenses, reject outside intervention and avoid introspection at any cost and so they are doomed to repeat their failures and mistakes..
That's probably not a good idea unless you know what you are doingand know the person well enough.
