Narcissism is the inability to trust in my opinion. The narcissist is playing God and everyone else is their deciples. Center of the universe is an understatement... they are all things great and everyone and everything else is small and feeble. No one has mentioned the sexual side of narcissism. They are the master of their own domain. Their need for sex is often overwhelming but there can be no satisfaction unless it is self given. Sorry, but this is apart of the whole sickness. The mirror on the ceiling started somewhere didn't it?
Interpersonally Exploitive (e.g., feels entitled, is unempathic and expects special favors without assuming reciprocal responsibilities; shamelessly takes others for granted and uses them to enhance self and indulge desires).
) Admirable Self-Image (e.g., believes self to be meritorious, special, if not unique, deserving of great admiration, and acting in a grandiose or self-assured manner, often without commensurate achievements; has a sense of high self-worth, despite being seen by others as egotistic, inconsiderate, and arrogant).
to name a few.
