Empathy impairment : Narcissistic Personality Disorder Forum
Narcissistic Personality Disorder message board, open discussion, and online support group.
The DSM lists lack of empathy as a symptom of Narcissistic personality disorder, however I have run across this idea more than a few times that it is closer to empathy impairment rather than a complete lack of. The therory is that NPD can have empathy towards other people, it’s just that Narcissists are too involved in themselves and what they have going on or simply don’t care enough about the other person to empathize with them.
It does happen, and it’s inconsistent even towards the same person at times, one minute showing genuine empathy the next a complete lack of it. What is your experience with this, do you experience empathy towards anyone or anything? Say family, pets, close friends? Someone who experienced a similar trauma as you during childhood etc.
