Narcissistic personality disorder

Narcissistic personality disorder is a psychological disorder in which the sufferer has a very inflated sense of self-esteem and feelings of entitlement. Someone with narcissistic personality disorder has a tendency to be vain, and displays a lack empathy for others. Most of the people diagnosed with this personality disorder are men.

Some of the symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder are:

 

  • Inability to have an intimate relationship
  • Lack of empathy for others
  • Extreme attention seeking behaviour
  • Setting extremely high and unreachable personal standards

 

Narcissistic personality disorder can be treated with either individual psychotherapy or with group therapy, however, an assessment must be done first.
