What is Vulnerable Narcissism? Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman, an author, cognitive scientist, and humanistic psychologist, says, unlike the “chest-thumping Narcissist who says ‘I’m great, I’m superior,’” Vulnerable Narcissism is “a quieter form where you feel not entitled to special privileges because you’re superior, but you feel entitled to special privileges because you’ve suffered in the past.”

Continuing, Dr. Kaufman, who has been studying Vulnerable Narcissism in the context of victimhood mentality for the past decade, says, “In data set after data set, this shows to be the number one inhibitor of well-being in life.”
