  • Can you do inferiority-superiority complex?

  • The first person I remembered was my Ex

  • "Its like a disease where the sufferers feel pretty good, but the people around them suffer."

    Sounds like my family😅

  • I should be treated like a VIP and get money and free food but hey I'm not a narcissist

  • #shared i can relate so much to this, since i have a extremely narcissistic "family member"

  • npd sounds exactly like my mom

  • That's not true, I'm nothing like that.

  • Would have watched but you put trump up there you liberals are all nazis

  • I'm 12, but I legit think I am narcissistic!

  • Literally me

  • Believe it or not, the narc I am dealing with (No contact atm) is slurping my energy through a telepathic bond. I am battling with this everyday till it's over (I'm on the winningside thank God) and then I'll be finally normal again. I became very psychotic because of this, for my survivaldrift has gone through the roof. In my youth he controlled me entirely like a puppet on a string. Very MK-ULTRA like. Most narcissistic people are extremely dangerous in a godless way. They're dangeorus as in Jack Nicholson-in-The-Shining dangerous.

  • My father in a nutshell.

  • I genuinely think my sister is a vulnerable narcissist

  • The first person I thought of…Donald Trump!!!!

  • The hardest truth to accept is the truth about oneself.

  • I disagree with the part about narcissist being able to change. They never change, only get worst. Don't make people think that there is even a slight chance of them becoming better people because they never will be and victims have to realize this so your video is misleading.

  • No proof social media is linked to narcissism?!…are you serious?! C'mon look at your own chart and see how drastically it has grown over the years. Social media without a doubt doubled and tripled the narcissism behavior if not encouraged more to participate or even become a new narcissist

  • Lol the most toxic personality, oh you forgot people in their 20s and 30s as well. Those are big narcissistic years

  • I can't be narcasistic I know in way to hot intelligent , important, nice and generous, successfull and impressive to be one.

  • cough cough Trump. No, seriously!

  • lip critical setting elderly late vehicle concrete snap

  • "I'm so good, I scream out my own name!"😋

  • Narcissists are abusers

  • clinton to a T

  • I always thought I was MD but turns out i was unconsciously a snake in the grass begging for attention to feel validated in order to boost my ego I have a 4.0 gpa and I hate it because it's not enough wtf is wrong with me

  • Wouldn't this include every single celebrity ever
