    Do any Members have any experience coping with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) themselves or dealing with the disorder exhibited by relatives, co-workers or other associates?

    "Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which people have an inflated opinion of themselves. They also have an intense need for the admiration and attention of others.

    People with NPD may be generally unhappy and disappointed when they’re not given the praise or special favors they believe they deserve. Others may see them as snobbish and conceited, and may not enjoy being around them."

    "Doctors and mental health professionals often use the new edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association, to diagnose mental disorders, such as NPD. The DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for NPD include the following traits:

    • having an inflated sense of self-importance and entitlement
    • needing constant admiration and praise
    • expecting special treatment due to perceived superiority
    • exaggerating achievements and talents
    • reacting negatively to criticism
    • being preoccupied with fantasies about power, success, and beauty
    • taking advantage of others
    • having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of other people
    • behaving in an arrogant manner "

    Interesting. TIL that Narcissism does mean what I thought.

    I know someone who is absolutely self-obsessed - unable to think or talk about anyone or anything but himself - think hypochondriac mixed with Munchausen's syndrome. But he sure doesn't have an inflated opinion of himself. Quite the opposite, in fact. He worries and gnashes about how terrible he is. Imagine a dozen or two dozen calls a day about 'I had a smoke and a drink, am I terrible?'

    By the above definition, he is not a Narcissist.
