The word narcissist is thrown around far too much in current times. And while they aren’t as prominent as society seems to think, they are still out there.
For anyone who may not know, narcissists are people who have something known as NPD or narcissistic personality disorder. These people have a lack of empathy for others and a need for admiration. They often have an inflated sense of self-worth and believe they are better than literally everyone else in their life. These people are extremely self-oriented, to say the least.
The malignant narcissist is someone who has NPD but also experiences things like antisocial features, paranoid traits, and can be quite aggressive. Some even feel the need to hurt and/or humiliate those around them. The malignant narcissist is similar to the normal narcissist but has the same problems on an extreme level.
Dealing with a narcissist of any kind is not a good idea. The further away from a narcissist you can get, the better. That being said, sometimes we find ourselves in far too deep with them before we realize who they truly are and what they are capable of. Below you will find a list of signs you should definitely see as red flags.
5 Signs You Are In The Presence of A Malignant Narcissist:
1. They think they are entitled to EVERYTHING.
This person is going the think that they deserve whatever they want without having to put any effort into it. They think that because they are here the world owes them something. Sure, it is normal to feel a little entitled from time to time but this fucker is far too high strung for his or her own good.
2. They are quite sadistic.
This person actually enjoys hurting others be it physically or emotionally. They play games with people and always win. You cannot beat them at anything and when it comes to getting revenge they go to extremes to tear others down.
3. They do not really care about anyone.
They may pretend to care about some people but really they don’t care about anyone. If you are upset they will not console you. They, for the most part, will also be the reason behind your sadness anyway.
Their ego is like nothing you have ever seen before. They really think that they are better than everyone else. No one compares to them in their mind. Because they are better than everyone else they think they can do whatever they want whenever they want.
They always think people are out to get them. Sure, a little paranoia is normal but not to this extent. They think every small thing you do is the beginning of some kind of crazy plot against them.
If you are in a relationship with a malignant narcissist you need to get out and cut ties.
