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.
They are narcissists. They are narcissistic. They have narcissism.
Narcissists will often get depressed when they lack narcississtic supply (some kind of admiration from others.)
Always. Narcissists never admit to being wrong - even when they are.
Nope they enjoy the company of others- narcissistic supply!
to ensure future narcissistic supply is available when needed.
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!
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.
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.

No, narcissism has absolutely no connection to sexual orientation. gay people may be narcissistic and straight people may be narcissistic.
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.
Narcissist or not they are like others in society ... some smoke others don't and it has nothing to do with being 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.
No, narcissists don't have a tendency to stalk people.
Narcissists do NOT fear abandonment - they fear being without "supply" and not in total control.
Not necessarily. However, narcissistic men are always exploiters of women, need to dominate them and are often very abusive.
Narcissists only occasionally recognize their own narcissism! Even if they do, they rarely care.
You don't. Narcissists can't comprehend ideas like that. Just bail, quick and dirty.
