How Can I Tell If I’m A Narcissist? How Can I Tell If My Significant Other Is A Narcissist?
If you’re concerned that you may be a narcissist, then you’re probably not.
Narcissists don’t self-reflect.
The only reason a narcissist might ask this question is to use the knowledge against his partner to convince her that she’s the one with the problem.
A narcissist will never admit to wrongdoing, even if you catch them red-handed.
They always play the victim. Always.
Their words and actions don’t match, and their stories don’t add up.
They are compulsive liars and cheaters. But they’ll convince you that they’re completely faithful and honest.
In relationships, narcissists always follow a pattern of behavior that involves three stages: Idealization (also called love-bombing); Devaluation; and Discard.
However, in order for someone to be considered as having NPD, they must meet 5 of these 9 criteria:
1.) An inflated sense of self-importance or grandiose behavior.
2.) Fantasies about being wealthy, famous, or influential.
3.) Exaggerating their abilities and accomplishments.
4.) Craving admiration and praise.
5.) Preoccupied with beauty, love, power, or success.
6.) Exaggerated sense of entitlement.
7.) Believes themselves to be unique or special.
8.) Exploits others for their own benefit or entertainment.
9.) Lacking empathy.
