While we tend to throw around the word 'narcissistic' rather liberally, technically speaking, a narcissist is someone who suffers from a mental health condition called narcissistic personality disorder.

Narcissistic people always love to talk about themselves. They are charming.

Narcissists are incredibly charming. They can be almost chameleon-like in their ability to adapt to any situation and zone in on what makes other people tick.

They are great seducers. For them, seduction is a game and they like to win. They often lose interest after they have conquered. They are grandiose and entitled.

What is the Dark Triad?

Narcissists often speak about themselves in highly inflated terms and love to brag. They feel entitled to special treatment — for instance, pushing to the front of a line. They love to look at themselves. I once had a teacher in graduate school who taught about personality disorders and said that going into the home of a narcissist, you will often find tons of photographs of themselves in their own home.

Is My Partner a Narcissist?

Things like this are a tip-off. Always a hero or a victim.

When a narcissist tells a story, they typically present themselves as either the hero or the victim, so listen closely when your boyfriend tells you about his last relationship, last job, a friendship that ended, or his family dynamics. No empathy.

Narcissists have little or no ability to feel empathy. They are terrible at understanding other people's pain or hurt. They do not have a very good grasp on how their words, deeds, or actions impact those around them. They have a great ability to dispose of people. Their ability to form lasting emotional attachments is poor, which is why it's not uncommon for narcissists to not to have a lot of long-term friends.

They need constant attention and validation. Narcissists are like a bottomless pit when it comes to attention and validation. They never tire of hearing how great they are and need constant attention and praise. There is an emotional void, that often goes back a long way to childhood, that needs to be filled but never can.

How to spot it

They are overly concerned about their reputation. They care more about what other people think of them than about the interpersonal dynamics. For example, if you have a fight in public, they are more likely to be worried about how other people perceive them than the conflict between the two of you.

If you break up, their primary concern will be how they are perceived by others. They get injured easily. They are quick to inflame and anger and get what we therapists call a 'narcissistic injury' quite easily.


What I mean by this is that you can say something without meaning harm and they will take it what you said very personally and get hurt and angry very easily. Again, even if your partner doesn't have NPD, it can still be an unhealthy relationship to date nrcissist who shows these narcissistic behaviors. Pay attention to the red narckssist that you are seeing early on in the relationship and trust your instincts.
