Narcissist behaviour patterns to watch out for

There are Narcissist behaviour patterns to watch out for, and they can be very dangerous if you don’t know how to spot them. The narcissists I have known in my life have been the most manipulative people I have ever met. They lie, cheat, steal, manipulate, and even kill. The only thing that has kept most people who relate with narcissist alive is knowing what their behavior patterns are so I can avoid them at all costs.

Common signs of narcissist behaviour patterns

I am going to share with you some of the narcissistic behaviors I have seen over the years in certain categories of persons and how to recognize them.

1) The Narcissistic Parent:

Parents who are narcissistic think that they are superior to their children. They may even try to control their children by making them feel inferior. Parents who are narcissistic tend to favor themselves over their children. They may not spend enough time with their children and instead focus more on themselves. They may also lie to their children with manipulative behaviors. Having narcissistic people as parents doesn’t teach good values to their kids. It teaches them to be self-centered and selfish.

2) The Narcissistic Child:

This next type of narcissism is when a child becomes narcissistic. A child who is narcissistic thinks that everyone should cater to him/her and that he/she is better than other children. When a child acts this way, it makes other kids dislike him/her because they see him/her as being selfish. Children who act this way usually end up becoming adults who are also narcissistic with a narcissistic personality disorder.

3) The Narcissistic Boss:

This next type of narcissism comes from bosses who are narcissistic. They believe that they are smarter than anyone else and that they deserve special treatment. They expect others to bow down to them and treat them differently than any other employee. They often use their position to take advantage of others.

4) The NarcissisticFriend:

A friend who is narcissistic is someone who always wants to be around you and will do anything to keep you close. He/she will say things behind your back that aren’t true and then laugh about it later on. These friends will never admit fault and will blame you for every problem that happens in their lives. These types of friends usually have a sense of entitlement with a narcissistic personality disorder. 

5) The Narcissistic Partner:

If you find yourself in a relationship with a partner who is narcissistic, you need to walk away. A narcissist will constantly put himself/herself above you and belittle you. He/she will criticize you and make fun of you whenever possible. These traits are narcissistic traits and they will cause problems in your relationship. You might experience forms of abuse like emotional abuse, narcissistic abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse, psychological abuse and childhood abuse if a child is under the care of a narcissist parent 

6) The Narcissistic Spouse:

When you marry a spouse who is narcissistic, you are signing up for constant drama. Your spouse will always be looking for ways to hurt you and make you feel bad about yourself unless you give in to his/her demands. If you stay in this marriage, you will eventually become one of these types of people. They might have been involved in cases of mental disorders in the past or inflated sense. 

7) The Narcissistic Employee:

When you work for a boss who is narcissistic, you don’t stand much of a chance of getting ahead in life. His/her expectations are too high and he/she expects perfection from you all of the time. This person will belittle you in front of clients and coworkers. He/she will always showcase a sense of superiority at the slightest opportunity. Their level of sense of superiority can range anywhere from mild to severe.

Narcissistic abuse syndrome

Narcissistic abuse syndrome (NAS) is a term used to describe a pattern of abusive behavior exhibited by individuals with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). It is characterized by an individual’s inability to empathize with another human being and a tendency to exploit those around them. Individuals with NPD may exhibit some or all of the following behaviors:

1) Constant criticism

2) Controlling behavior

3) Isolation

4) Blaming others

5) Envy

6) Deceitfulness

7) Manipulation

Narcissistic abuse syndrome can occur as either a primary diagnosis (i.e., the only diagnosis present), or secondary to another diagnosis such as borderline personality disorder. In addition, NAS has also been associated with antisocial personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder, avoidant personality disorder, paranoid personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, passive-aggressive personality disorder, and dependent personality disorder.

Malignant narcissism

Malignant narcissism is a form of psychopathy characterized by extreme selfishness, lack of empathy, grandiosity, and a belief that the world revolves around oneself. Malignant narcissists believe that everyone else exists solely to serve them. They often display a great deal of charm and charisma but are not particularly intelligent. They tend to be very manipulative and exploitative. They are generally unable to maintain long-term relationships because their partners usually leave when they begin to lose interest in them.

The most common type of malignant narcissism is pathological altruism, which involves a desire to help other people while simultaneously feeling entitled to anything and everything they want. Pathological altruism is closely related to narcissism, although it does not necessarily involve self-centeredness. People with pathological altruism are typically highly concerned with what others think of them, and they are likely to use any means necessary to achieve their goals.

The second type of malignant narcissism is the psychopathic narcissist, who lacks empathy and remorse. These people do not care if they cause harm to others; they simply enjoy causing pain. They are extremely dangerous because they are willing to kill without compunction.

The third type of malignant narcissism is the sadistic narcissist, who derives pleasure from inflicting pain on others. Sadistic narcissists have no regard for the feelings of others and are capable of committing acts of cruelty and violence against anyone who gets in their way.

Antagonistic narcissism

Antagonistic narcissism is a form of narcissism where the person believes he/she is superior to others and will not tolerate any criticism. The narcissist feels threatened by any perceived threat to his/her superiority. He/She will react aggressively towards any perceived threat to his or her position. This is a more serious condition than simple narcissism.
