What Is Narcissistic?

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–5), narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a mental illness defined by a pattern of grandiosity, a persistent desire for adulation, and a lack of empathy. Some forms of narcissism can lead to abuse. (These are the telltale indications of narcissistic abuse that therapists want you to be aware of.)

The qualities of narcissism are persistent throughout relationships, settings, and social contexts, and they frequently emerge in early adulthood. About 5% of the population, or 1 in 200 people, are thought to satisfy the criteria for NPD. Men account for almost three-quarters of those with NPD.

Living With Narcissistic

According to Sander van der Linden, Ph.D., a social psychologist at the University of Cambridge who has done extensive research on narcissism, "narcissist" is most commonly used to describe a person who has an excessive interest in themselves and cares very little about other people's feelings or experiences. "Narcissists have a low sense of empathy," he says, making it difficult for them to pay attention to and relate to the ideas, feelings, and suffering of others.

When you put it that way, nearly everyone knows someone who is on the narcissistic extreme—a parent, sibling, friend, coworker, or romantic partner. And dealing with a narcissist can be excruciatingly uncomfortable.
