 Personality Disorder

Who is the narcissist?
It is a person who
seeks perfection. He
uses the false self as
a protection
mechanism against
attacks from the
outside world. The
false self is like a
mask which people
use to hide their fear
and their feeling of
being insecure.
What feelings do
narcissists have?
         Shame

         Envy (jealousy)

         Fear

         Arrogance

         Exploitative behavior
Do narcissists love
   themselves?
The answer is no.
Narcissists love
just the image of
themselves and
think that people
will love them just
when they are
perfect.
Differences between male
  and female narcissists
  There are more men who suffer
  from this personality disorder
  than women.

  Female and male narcissists tend
  to use different techniques of
  using other people (sexuality,
  seduction, physique)
 Causes of Narcissistic
  Personality Disorder

Social conditioning

Parenting
Can narcissists ever get
        better?
The biggest problem facing the healing of
a narcissist is the narcissist himself.
Steps:
 Narcissists would have to admit that
something was wrong with them in order to go
and seek any form of therapy.

  When narcissists do find the strength to go to
therapy they look at the therapist as other
people who they use.
Can narcissists ever get
        better?
 Narcissists may give up very soon
 because of seeing treatment as a
 waste of time.

 Some therapists will give up the hope
 of helping the narcissist too early.
 Also narcissistic patients can be
 ungrateful and critical of their
 therapist
     Conclusion
Today the situation
is favourable for
people who have a
Narcissistic
Personality
Disorder. They have
all possibilities to
disappear in the
crowd because they
can manipulate
others.
Thank you
