If you were involved with one and he/she is a chameleon and fools others (only for a short time usually) then worry about getting on with your own life and realizing that others can look after themselves. Sociopath/narcissist will hang themselves every time ... they just have to open their mouths!
A narcissist cannot show appreciation. A narcissist is a person who looks at themselves as higher than others, or believing they can do any task better than others, so for a narcissist to show appreciation would be very odd.
A narcissist can also be a sociopath or psychopath. But "just" suffering from narcissism does not inherently come with the same personality defects of a sociopath. A narcissist can cause others pain by putting someone down; it is done with the intent of making himself appear to be better, smarter, faster... For all their bravado most narcissists claim, they actually suffer from a very poor self esteem and much of their behavior is an attempt to show off to others and to make themselves look good. A sociopath hurts others because they have no moral compass. They enjoy watching others suffer and this behavior can almost always be traced back to a very young age. They generally start small, torturing bugs, hurting small animals and they move on to hurting people - generally starting with children younger than themselves. What narcissists and sociopaths/psychopaths have in common is the ability to make a great first impression. The narcissist in an attempt to gain a new fan - a sociopath in an attempt to gain a new victim. Oddly even the worst of the worst can behave when they want to, Ted Bundy had a girlfriend who had a small daughter. She had no clue to the real personality of the beast within.
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.
If it is reason to do with emotions of others then they will not see it. They see reason for themselves and nobody else.
Pathological lying of and within itself is not defined as a mental disorder by the medical community- so there are no list of common symptoms. This type of deception is set apart from and motivated differently than the common deception used on a daily basis by your average person. Pathological lying is typically associated with a serious mental disorder which may include: borderline personality disorder, narcissism, sociopath, or others. The main thing that sets sociopath apart from the other mental illnesses that are commonly associated with being a pathological liar is the absence of a conscience. A sociopath is not able to empathize with those who do have a conscience. The sociopath does not feel remorse, guilt or love but a narcissist on the other hand may. A narcissist has a conscience and the ability to empathize with others but rarely does because they care more about their own feelings. I would describe a narcissist as being "the center of their own universe" and expecting everyone to gravitate around his/her needs/wants. I would describe a sociopath as someone being from a completely different universe but having the ability to go unnoticed because they are wearing a disguise. The sociopath will completely drain you of all positive energy and then turn the tables on you to make you believe it's your fault. A narcissist will almost always be identified and are unable to hide what they are.
It's pretty similar in meaning. When someone is being smug, it means they are letting others know that they are better than them. Narcissistic feelings are when a person is in "love" with themselves. Smug has more to do with letting others know you are better than them. Narcissist is more of the feeling of greatness one has of themselves.
Lungs and some others
An egomaniac???? If the person loves themselves as well as treats others the same then its healthy self love. A narcissist and more extreme would be psychopath
Sociopaths don't have feelings for others.
Unless a sociopath is professionally diagnosed, you cannot tell that person that he/she is a sociopath. And the chances of one going to get a diagnosis are virtually nil. And DO NOT tell others that you think he/she is a sociopath in case it gets back to the person. Since a sociopath has no conscience, and since only self matters to a sociopath, he/she can be vindictive and even litigious when it comes to being told about his/her condition. There is no therapy to "fix" this condition - just protect yourself and those around you. Get the person out of your life as cleanly and quickly as possible.
no because they can protect themselves from predators and take care of themselves at a certain age.
Most narcissists do have a socially pleasing demeanor. A person can be obsessed with themselves even to the point of how they appear to others.
Give an example when you may be required to discharge the duty of care in order to protect a person from harming themselves or from harming others?
No narcissist are too full of themselves to care fir others or miss them
sociopath ---- Misanthrope.
I'd hope so.
Hyenas are the lions archenemy and they kill each others young.
We don't care for the same reasons others would. We get mad when the other person is obvious, because it ruins our image. Our significant other is our best piece on the chess board save our proteges, so we will always protect our assets being taken from us. It's difficult to cheat on a sociopath, because we can see through you. So in short, if you are a sociopath dating another you won't have a problem. If you are a non-sociopath cheating on a sociopath it will be short lived and they will make you emotionally suffer for betraying them
Sociopath is person with a mental disease. They don't follow the rules or moral of a society. They have a complete disregard for the feelings and rights of others. They don't feel remorse or guilt of their actions. They tend to be disorganized in his or her demeanor,nervous and easily agitated. They tend to spontaneously act out without thinking about the consequences of their actions. They are dangeourus to others and themselves. They need a lot treatment.
it depends on the sociopath is trying to do. But if it comes to it, yes they do.
A sociopath differs from others in the same way animals differ from humans. They lack empathy and sympathy. A sociopath is unable to understand another beings suffering, happiness, loneliness, pain, joy, etc. They don't have a conscious so to speak. They see all others as mere means to an end or simply toys in the game of life. They can't experience love because they care solely for themselves and are almost as non-human as animals.
Narcissists stereotypically tend to stare at their fingernails and talk with their eyes closed. Additionally, they will tend to physically distance themselves from others.
They had help form the proprietors (8 noblemen/govner) and they protected themselves from the attacks. Spain and Freanch are their eneimes.
Of course. He is obviously after something since a narcissist is only interested in how they can enrich themselves at the expense of others. They choose "partners" who can supply something: adoration, a place to live for a while, money, sex, vicarious prestige, an introduction to a new social group, etc.Of course.
