Hello fellow SDNers. I'm taking a clinical psych course and I ran into the criteria for diagnosing an individual with Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Does any of this sound familiar? 1. Has grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g. exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superiour without commensurate achievements) 2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love 3. Believes that he/she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (institutions) 4. Requires excessive admiration 5. Has a sense of entitlement, (e.g. unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations) 6. Is interpersonally exploitative (e.g. takes advantage of others to achieve his or her ends) 7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others 8. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him/her 9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes So, does this sound familiar??
