Narcissistic personality disorder

In our selfie-obsessed, celebrity-driven culture, the term narcissism is frequently used to describe someone who appears excessively vain or full of themselves. However, in psychological terms, narcissism does not imply genuine self-love. People with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) are more accurately described as being in love with an idealised, grandiose image of themselves. And they love their inflated self-image because it allows them to avoid deep feelings of insecurity. But maintaining their delusions of grandeur requires a lot of effort, which is where dysfunctional attitudes and behaviours come into play.

Narcissistic personality disorder is characterised by a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behaviour, a lack of empathy and consideration for others, and an excessive need for admiration. Others frequently describe people with NPD as arrogant, manipulative, selfish, patronising, and demanding. This way of thinking and behaving manifests itself in every aspect of the narcissist's life, from work and friendships to family and romantic relationships.
