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.

AnswerYes, 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.

Narcissists will often get depressed when they lack narcississtic supply (some kind of admiration from others.)

Nope they enjoy the company of others- narcissistic supply!

I do not think they do. They lack the ability to acceot that they are anything but right. My narcissistic ex-husband abused alcohol. Being a psychologist he came up with all sorts of intellectual theories to support his argument that he did not have a problem with alcohol. I believed him at the time as he had and still has a good job. Once you leave a narcissistic relationship you begin to unravel fact from fiction. FACT! Someone who drinks 20 units of alcohol every day has a problem!

No contact is one of the most hurtful narcissistic injuries one could inflict.

Few people - especially if they are really narcissistic - take kindly to being called narcissists.

Narcissists are motivated largely by fear. Being willing to expose them, say no, refuse to mirror them, and having the proof and evidence to back you up helps.

User Avatar

This varies from person to person, but in general narcissists will take praise from whoever they can, which does not make narcissistic persons bad parents per se.

If you've been exposed to narcissistic abuse in childhood, you're more likely to end up with narcissistic partners if you haven't worked through your abuse. Adult Children of Narcissists (ACONs) have a number of issues to resolve.

Narcissist or not they are like others in society ... some smoke others don't and it has nothing to do with being Narcissistic.

No, narcissism has absolutely no connection to sexual orientation. gay people may be narcissistic and straight people may be narcissistic.

Oh yes mines went off on a rampage whenever I don't do what he wants me to do

It depends. Some narcissists are subtle and not very malignant. Others are malignant. The malignant ones can be very abusive.

User Avatar

Not necessarily. However, narcissistic men are always exploiters of women, need to dominate them and are often very abusive.

User Avatar

Because narcissists have a need to shame their victims. Additionally many have fixations about sex.

User Avatar

No, not normally. If they are arroused by their own bodies, they are narcissistic (but straight people can also be narcissists). Gays are no more likely than heterosexuals to be narcissistic. They want a partner to make love with just as heterosexuals do.

User Avatar

Narcissists do NOT fear abandonment - they fear being without "supply" and not in total control.

User Avatar

Narcissism and depression are unrelated. It is my belief that narcissists are prone to depression particularly when narcissistic supply has left. They may even have suicidal thoughts but rarely act on them. Good lord! How would the world survive without them!
