          October 30, 2012

          Do you think you could spot a narcissist? Could it be you or someone you know?

          Narcissistic personality disorder is a habitual pattern of grandiosity, a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy, beginning in early adulthood, and indicated by the following criteria. If any of these apply, you might have a narcissist in your midst!

          1. A grandiose sense of self-importance where the individual exaggerates achievements and talents and expects to be recognized as superior without relevant accomplishments.

          2. A preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love.

          3. A belief that he or she is special and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people or institutions.

          4. A need for excessive admiration.

          5. A sense of entitlement and unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.
