This video answers the questions: Can I provide examples of what narcissists do to make other people believe that they are more intelligent than they actually are?
There are two types of narcissism: With grandiose narcissism we see characteristics like being extroverted, socially bold, self-confident, having a superficial charm, being resistant to criticism, and being callous and unemotional. Vulnerable narcissism is characterized by shame, anger, aggression, hypersensitivity, a tendency to be introverted, defensive, avoidant, anxious, depressed, socially awkward, and shy.
Narcissistic personality disorder is a Cluster B personality disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. It has nine symptom criteria, five of which are required for a diagnosis.
1: Grandiose sense of self-importance
3: Special or unique
4: Requires excessive admiration
5: Sense of entitlement
7: Lacks empathy for others
8: Often envious
9: Arrogant attitudes or behaviors
