While the term "narcissist" is often used generally to refer to a person who's overly self-centered, it can also refer to someone with narcissistic personality disorder, which is primarily characterized by:
Other symptoms include a preoccupation with unlimited success and belief that they are special, unique, and important, and a feeling that they can only be understood by others who share these perceived traits. They are extremely sensitive to criticism.
A narcissist may exaggerate or outright lie about their accomplishments and talents and believe they are unequivocally superior to everyone else. They exist in a fantasy world built to hide their feelings of shame and insecurity. They feel entitled to special treatment and expect others to cater to their every whim, and those who don’t are met with rage, bullying, and contempt.
A controlling , manipulative, and selfish person- who takes advantage of others to reach their own goals. Also is obsessed with self. Has no empathy for others , and disregards the feelings of others.

No, the narcissist does not know, after all he is perfect and everyone else around him is at fault.

Try to find another outlet for this narcissist.
Not if the narcissist is as smart as she/he believes herself/himself to be.
Run like the wind from a narcissist.
they're still a Narcissistjust a stoned Narcissist
Narcissist in some cases can be a sexual predator, a stalker, or a rapist. But only criminal narcissist are this way
Yes it does especially if the narcissist favor's the child. The child will grow up to be just like the narcissist.
Only if there is something in it for them - because they are, after all, a narcissist!
The chances are vanishingly small.
Probably not, they would fight over mirror time. ;)
Not likely. The narcissist is more likely to be addicted to himself.
Be careful if you do, the narcissist can be a monster to anyone who hurts their pride.
Yes, sometimes a narcissist will contact their ex after a break up because the narcissist cannot imagine their ex with anyone else as the narcissist has a complex of being the greatest at everything including relationships and is ego maniacal.
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 narcissist because you will feel used abused and robbed. Read all you can on this horrific disorder.
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.
It is possible to show up a narcissist publicly, but if you do, the narcissist is going to be very angry at you. It is not always a wise strategy to make enemies.
A true narcissist is the center of their own universe. If what you are asking, does a narcissist see that they are being self centered and selfish, the answer is NO. To a narcissist, they are right and the rest of the world is wrong. If they say the sky is red, it is red. A narcissist will even view their needs as the needs of other people. Narcissism is a personality disorder, and therefore is not cureable. So, if you meet a narcissist I would recommend turning and running. Lastly, if you are married to a narcissist and working for a narcissist, my sincere condolences. That is what happened to me. I lost my family, and my career all in one fell swoop when the big midlife crisis hit since we worked all together.
Look up narcissist in the dictionary and determine if the person matches the identified definition.
The narcissist wants something and thinks he or she can get it from you.
