Does a narcissistic person realize who they are and what they are doing?
Nacissism is on the upswing, and more women seem to be involved, too. Is this age of entitlement a culprit?
You might be able to find the answer to your question here:
You can also take a quiz to see if you are a narcissist.
After working with people for 49 years as a therapist and now a Life Coach I can tell you the answer is "NO" they do not know. Actually they think it is "confidence" and not a problem. They think everyone else has a problem.
I am glad you commented. From my personal experience, your observation is precisely right.
That's what I was thinking, especially when I was told that it is never good to become involved with anyone that has a mental illness. It was not hard to discover the complex in this person.
I would say that it depends at what stage they are.
If they are just starting to become that way then it is possible to cure them and they might realize who they are. Maybe all they need is someone to talk to. A relative or a psychiatrist.
If they are too far into it then they may really need help and neither be able to admit nor realize who they are.
So it is a disease which is curable, but perhaps only to a certain point. I do not know if anyone has taken critical, lengthy studies and surveys on this.
I belief it is a misunderstood problem. Heavy on the ego and zilch on the humility.
I married a narcissist ... he followed his true character and is now serving 20 years. He knew exactly what he was doing because he believed it was his right.
Justice is rightfully so

I have some new neighbours, a mother and daughter, who shout at each other all day long. Hubby says he has heard slamming doors when he steps out often. I wonder if it will get to a point where we both feel we should do something, call the police or go knock on the door and find out if everything...
