Relationship With A Narcissistic
Are you in a relationship with a narcissistic person? What are the traits of a person who is considered to be narcissistic?
Before we begin, let us first look at what is considered to be narcissism. Narcissism is a medical disorder also known as Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)
The typical characteristics of a person who has been diagonised to suffer from NPD is their lack of ability to empathize with others and an inflated sense of self-importance.
These people love themselves and idealized self-image, which they project in order to avoid exposing or expressing their true feeling (and being seen as) the real, disenfranchised, wounded self.
So how do you know that you are in a relationship with a narcissist person
1. Love of Self Image
A narcissist person loves to talk about themselves, and will not give you a chance to take part in a two-way normal conversation.
As a partner you will find yourself struggling to give your views and feelings heard. When you eventually do get a word in, if it’s not in agreement with the narcissist, your comments are likely to be corrected, dismissed, or ignored.
2. Stop I am talking
As opposed to many people who have the poor communication habits of interrupting others, the narcissist interrupts and quickly switches the focus back to themselves, showing little genuine interest in you.
3. Non existence for rules
These people enjoy getting their ways of with violating rules and social norms, such as cutting in line, principally always coming late to appointments, chronic over doing things like at restaurants over tipping, breaking laws and regulations, just to mention a few
They show absolutely no regard to other people’s thoughts, feelings, passions and physical space. They will rudely overstep and use others without consideration or sensitivity. These are the type of people that you will never lend money to because they do not have a senses of responsibility to repay back debts. They will break promises and obligations at will and will show little remorse. Instead they will turn the whole incident around and blame the victim for one’s own lack of respect.
5. I am beautiful Image Projection
As narcissistic person will go to lengths to impress others by making themselves look good externally.
The message their images will give is that “trophy” complex where they exhibit themselves physically, romantically, sexually, socially, religiously, financially, materially, professionally, academically, or culturally.
They will use anything that comes in their hands, objects, status, and/or accomplishments to represent the self, substituting for the perceived, inadequate “real” self.
The grandstanding „merit badges“ is an underlying mesaage that displays the image look: “I’m better than you!” or “Look at how special I am—I’m worthy of everyone’s love, admiration, and acceptance!”
