Narcissism and Superiority

When you are feeling down or disappointed then the person with Narcissism is in their element. They will enjoy patting you on the head and saying there, there in their Narcissistic patronizing fashion. What they actually mean though is, 'I am delighted that you have now once again proven your inferiority and that means that I the Narcissist am still safe up here on my pedestal looking down on all the other poor incompetent sods who tried, bless them!'

Then your Narcissist can smile knowingly and patronise you by saying to anyone who’ll listen that it was a lovely little idea that you had and bless your heart for trying to live a nice little life but in the end of course you are just totally incapable of doing so.

What they are actually thinking in their head now though is that it serves you right for failing that’s what happens you know when you get ideas above your station and anyway the absolute cheek of you to try to touch my Narcissistic feet up here in my superior world.

A Narcissist believes whole heartedly that they don’t need to achieve any great success to prove how superior they are to you. They just are full stop!

Instead they just know that they are special, unique, superior, more intelligent than you and there cannot possibly be anyone else anywhere in the world that possesses the same amazing qualities that they have. How do they know? Its just an inherent part of their personality obviously!

You have probably experienced many instances where you looked on in awe as this apparently superior person berated the rest of the world for their shortcomings, their stupidity and their lack of vision while the Narcissist themselves had to that date actually done very little to propel themselves forward except tell you about how ingenious they are going to be at some unspecified date in the future.

If you have been through this scenario then it is quite possible that you may have a person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder in your life (or maybe even a number of them). Please read my other articles especially, Narcissistic Personality Disorder Defined, which lists the details and the characteristics of the typical Narcissist.

      I am delighted you like it. Give my sympathies to your wife too. She was lucky though to get away in the end, not unscathed though I would imagine!
