You have heard about them, you deal with them every day, but you don’t know them. We are talking about narcissists, people who have an excessive self admiration and a lack of understanding of others feelings.
There are many narcissists out there and sometimes you stay totally unaware of them and thus fall into a trap. It is very important to identify them as early as possible to deal with them better, especially when you are in situations that are not easy to break away from, for instance work place or some personal relationships. Here we share with you five ways to identify Narcissists.
But before that, here is a definition of a Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) by Wikipedia. “NPD is a personality disorder in which there is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others' feelings. People affected by it often spend a lot of time thinking about achieving power or success, or about their appearance. They often take advantage of the people around them. The behavior typically begins by early adulthood, and occurs across a variety of situations.” So, how do you identify such people?
