Title : 5 Signs You Can Spot in a Narcissist
Category : Others
We have in our lives lived or come across narcissist people. How can you tell? Well, it’s easy. You must have observed them as having a high opinion of them, believing that they are unique and special and that common rules of life don’t apply to them or has attitude problem/arrogance embedded in their nature. Does any of it ring a bell?

If it does, then that means you have experienced narcissism. But how do you spot them, is the real question here and by identifying following traits in a person, you can save yourself a hand dealt by a narcissist:

1. Can’t Take Criticism

Yes, forget constructive criticism. Even the slightest hint of critique will make them view you as a person who is against them and is an enemy of their pursuits in life. So, steer clear of such people. The admittance of a shortcoming or accepting mistakes is not in their DNA and they will not forgive you for pointing it out to them.

2. Low Self-Esteem

It can be understood from the fact that they are constantly trying to prove themselves to others and/or to the voice from within that speaks to them. Their insecurities get the better of them and hence they are on a mission to let everyone know how “cool” they are, how always “right” they are and so on so forth.

3. Pretty Defensive

We’ve already seen how so non-absorbing they are to criticism but even if you question or tell them something for their own good their defense mechanisms are triggered and they will start justifying as to the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of the matter. And the best part is most of the time you wouldn’t have even inquired from them the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of the matter.

4. Lash Out Frequently

Narcissists tend to lash out on those who are not on their team or dared to hold a differing viewpoint. Their rage will be one to behold! Essay writing by expert essay writers can be sought online. So when you know you cannot talk to this person and present your side of the story without turning it into a full-blown confrontation of the sort, again steer clear of such lot. Will make your life way easier, trust me.

5. Impose

If not anything, they will try imposing their thought process, opinions and reality on to others. In other words, project it onto others. They want to make everyone else comply with what they stand for or simply nod in the affirmative to what they have to say. It feeds their desires and brings them joy. Therefore, I ask is there a point in associating with the person who doesn’t value you. Remember Mr. Smith from The Matrix?

Learn to identify few of the above traits in a person to figure out if they are suffering from a narcissistic personality disorder. Help them, if they are willing or prepared to listen. Else leave them be. You are not required to endure their narcissistic behavior.
