What purpose does the Narcissist?
That is a very broad question but I'll try to answer it the best I can. The narcissist basically feeds off other people. To him/her the other person is a reflection of the traits, qualities, wealth, or anything that the narcissist wants or wants to be. I hope you're following me. They leave behind a string of innocent victims to deal with the wrath and chaos that they bring to the people in their lives. They don't look back and they don't blink an eye, unless! They feel that they can get something from that person at sometime or another when the need it. Then they will keep your number. Beware of narcissists, they leave you high and dry and don't bat an eye when they're done with you.

somebody who has the following symptoms Reacting to criticism with anger, shame, or humiliation Taking advantage of others to reach own goals Exaggerating own import…ance, achievements, and talents Imagining unrealistic fantasies of success, beauty, power, intelligence, or romance Requiring constant attention and positive reinforcement from others Becoming jealous easily Lacking empathy and disregarding the feelings of others Being obsessed with self Pursuing mainly selfish goals Trouble keeping healthy relationships Becoming easily hurt and rejected Setting goals that are unrealistic Wanting "the best" of everything Appearing unemotional
They need someone who is as focused on them as they are on themselves. So they'd be better off with someone with really low self esteem, or just someone who is a… real giver, and wouldn't mind never getting anything in return.
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 narcissis…tic 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.
No,he don't know that he's a narcissistic but he know something is wrong, but don't know what the problem is. He knows,he is different and strange from other people.
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 others);- gr…andiosity (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.
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.
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.
It's certainly possible. A narcissist may date another narcissist that is more selfish than they are to feel better about themselves. In turn say "i'm not as selfish as he/she… is so that makes me above him/her). It's incredible and shocking the way people with this disorder think. It takes a lot of research to understand a narcissist.
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 lifebe 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 itavoid conflictdo not try to argue or reason with them- your winning or convincing is counter to their world view- they will not allow itgain more understanding to enable you to work as constructively as possiblegive practical support when and if they ask for it
They would probably not like to hear it, and would most likely deny it. ANSWER: They will most likely 'gaslight', by which I mean they will tell you yo…u're crazy, or on drugs or similar, laugh at you or take mock pity on your silliness. They will say or do almost anything to discredit you, but they will never listen to you, consider your point or admit to or apologise for anything. It's almost a perfect test for narcissism. ANSWER: The above is a possibility but there's also a chance of sending the N into a rage. I don't think confronting a true N is a very good idea. Remember, anything that goes wrong in the relationship is YOUR fault and without outside help he'll never accept criticism. ANSWER: I thought this was pretty profound. It reads something like a bad joke. However, its not! I was dating someone who surely was a narcissist. On this particular occasion had dropped by my apartment unexpectedly. Catching me in the midst of researching narcissism online. After entering the first thing he did was look over my shoulder to see what I was reading on the screen. Upon reading said, "Is that about me"? Dumbfounded I responded, "If you have to ask..."
Generally no. Because their main focus is themselves, often narcissistic people won't think about how other people view them. Having this basic operation of putting ourself in… other peoples shoes is an important way to self edit and improve. Without this skill, the person would never think about themselves as narcissistic.

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 over…whelms a mental disorder.
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… obsession 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. 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.
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 much of the time. They deal with each other the same way they deal with everyone else and they form a sick and t…wisted relationship that's bound to have its share of pain and suffering. The kids are at risk especially since they are cut off from any potential of having a good parent, unless the kids are taken from them. Watching 2 narcissists fight could be very interesting, even ammusing if you realized what was going on. You could bet money on which one would outsmart or outmanipulate the other. A narc cannot play another narc. It's like a user can't use a user. They know who they can suck dry and who they can't.
