Narcissists are the last people you would want to meet and interact with, and for no fault of theirs. It’s a mental disorder of quite legitimate nature. Narcissists or scientifically speaking, patients of narcissistic personality disorder, cannot ever put others’ interests before theirs.
It is broadly of two types: the first kind have an over-inflated and exaggerated image of themselves in their head. This is the worse one of the two. The second, also called vulnerability narcissism: the patients feel extremely threatened by anyone else succeeding.
It is the first kind that is normally referred to when one uses the word “narcissist”.
It is simply someone who is at the very extreme pole of self-love and adoration. They feed on others doting on them and doing things for them. They are manipulative and conceited and try to ensnare people into their web and feed off their mental energy, giving them the toughest time of their lives.
