Identify A Narcissist With These 8 Character Traits

by Conscious Reminder

Narcissists – we hate them but somehow, they tend to enter our lives in different ways. And once we get stuck with them, our lives can quickly turn toxic. People who suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder are called narcissists. 

They want attention but they carry no empathy for other people. They leech off energy from you and never appreciate you for that. In the end, they make life a living hell for you.

People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder tend to exploit others and have a very exaggerated sense of self-importance. They tend to overlook what a person wants or needs for them. It’s best to cut them off but sometimes, it’s difficult to spot them.

Here are some of the traits of narcissists:

1. Overreacting

Narcissists have a tendency to overreact. If a small thing does not go in the way they planned, they would scream or throw tantrums to direct the attention towards them. They want others to calm them down and show them a realistic view of things. From their point of view, the world is going to ruins.

2. Being Passive-Aggressive

Narcissists are not direct – rather, they tend to go down the passive-aggressive route. They would plan their attack and then come from behind when you least expect it. If they are angry at something, they would not say it directly. Rather they would glare at you and make you feel terrible.

3. Acting Misunderstood

Narcissists are not as complicated as they think they are. However, they think of themselves as victims and that the entire world is pitted against them. Hence, nobody understands them – it’s a constant mentality that they keep making a victim of themselves.

4. Sensitivity

Narcissists are quite sensitive and not in a good way. They are mostly reactive in nature. They don’t care about you but if you do something wrong, they would immediately fly off the handle. If they don’t agree with you, they will try to make you feel like you are wrong and false. They don’t think of things from your perspective.

5. Boundaries Don’t Matter To Them

You have your boundaries but for narcissists, it is not something they care for. They are always trying to step into your zone and trying to make you feel bad about the way you live and about your boundaries. They are always breaking into your comfort zone.

6. Defensive

Narcissists collect things that they can use against you. As a result, they tend to get defensive very easily. They will not get the release necessary for growth. If you have done something wrong, they will remember it and bring it up whenever the right time shows up for them.

7. Criticism

Narcissists think of themselves as perfect beings and so, they can’t take any kind of criticism. If you critique them, then they will get angry and be in a worse mood than ever before.

8. Exciting

While there are certain bad aspects of narcissists, one of the best things about them is their charm. They have a unique charm that makes them fun to be with and attractive too. They have a lot of people drawn to them because of this.

So, if you spot any of these qualities in someone, maybe it’s time to get out of the relationship as fast as you can!
