Mine was both a cerebral and a somatic as well.He is 40 now (although he is not looking more than 32-35).He was a great guitarist(in my country),had three marriages and endless realationships and small affairs.He used to be very handsome (even did some modelling when younger)and he is still quite goodlooking.He used to say that he was quite foolish when he was young and even suffered from hysterical paralysis caused by participating in orgies e.t.c.Now he says that he wants to be loved (=worshiped) for his witts and soul and that he always longed for women that he would appreciate their mind and good soul.The guy brags about how he must ejaculate 2-3 times a day in order to feel right,and still tells stories about how he would relate to women with exceptional personalities no matter how they looked.He used to tell me that he would be in love with me for 150 years,that he would still desire me no matter if a carot would root on my forehead and stuff like that.I guess his need to appreciate mind would grow accordingly to how his body was changing due to time.The truth is that he is an intelligent person,very talented in music,he could be a real philosopher if he wasn't so self-absorbed.But he is still a narcissist.No matter somatic or cerebral or both,the pattern is still the same:they can't love,they are terrified that you don't find them beautiful enough or intelligent enough and they are always ready to go to the next victim.

A somatic narcissist is someone who feels superior to others in relation to their body. So they think they are sexy or hot.

Is it likely that a narcissist would be of the cerebral type in one relationship and somatic in another?

THE NARCISSIST CEREBRAL/SOMATIC AND THE OPPOSITE SEX This chapter deals with the male narcissist and with his "relationships" with women. It would be correct to substitute one gender for another. Female narcissists treat the men in their lives in a manner indistinguishable from the way male narcissists treat "their" women. I believe that this is the case with same sex partners. To re-iterate, Primary Narcissistic Supply (PNS) is any kind of NS provided by people who are not "meaningful" or "significant" others. Adulation, attention, affirmation, fame, notoriety, sexual conquests
