To be narcissistic is to be selfish, manipulative, and ego-driven. But this trait has varying degrees of intensity, from reasonable selfishness to a villainous and psychopathic personality disorder.
Narcissists need not always be the flashy and over-confident people who are not letting others speak. Many narcissists are insecure, self-focused, and are not in the limelight.
..or NPD, refers to an extremely severe, negative form of narcissism and has the following traits:
Most narcissists do not fall in the two extremes of angels (zero narcissism) or demons (impairing disorder) but are somewhere in between, a grey area where they exhibit a certain level of narcissism. This makes diagnosis difficult in most cases.
Psychologists have identified two broad types of narcissism, the grandiose and the vulnerable.
This is the kind of narcissism which is commonly associated with what narcissism is supposed to mean.
This Tony Starkish caricature of a flamboyant personality is noticed due to their loud and bold nature. A measure of grandiose traits are actually positive, and most people don’t mind someone who is popular to be a little stubborn and egoistic.
We may have seen some hypersensitive people at work, or among friends, who are taking everything to heart, being defensive, spiteful, and avoidant with their interactions. These people are easily hurt and are always insecure, in self-doubt, or in some kind of deep pain.
Their vulnerability makes them fragile and may lead them to hurt themselves and their loved ones.
