Who is a narcissist?
Narcissists are people who are extremely self-involved.
They have an exaggerated sense of self, regardless of how they may be in reality. They admire themselves for no good reason in particular and are habitual of making everything about themselves.
Such people can generally not tolerate any form of criticism. They also expect and demand constant attention and praise from others. These people seem to have reached a high level of self-actualization in their minds.
They may not necessarily be what they believe themselves to be. On the face of it, they show themselves to be very confident, while deep inside lies a fragile little ego.
What is narcissistic personality disorder?
A narcissistic personality disorder is a type of personality disorder in which a person has an overwhelming sense of self.
People who suffer from this disorder claim attention and care from others and as a result of this disorder they exhibit certain traits that make life difficult not just for themselves, but those around them too.
These traits include:
- The belief that they deserve the attention they demand
- Considering themselves to be superior
- Taking advantage of others to get things done their way
- Making everything about themselves and ignoring the needs and wants of other people.
- Arrogant behavior
- Difficulty in listening to issues raised by people they associate with
As a result of such traits, narcissists often face troublesome relationships at home and at work.
Are you in a relationship with a narcissist?
If you are in a relationship and are facing serious issues due to negligence from your partner, it is important to recognize where the problem lies.
If your partner tends to overlook and ignore all your concerns and is ever ready to make it all about themselves, chances are that you are dealing with a narcissist. Being romantically involved with a narcissist can prove to energy draining. Survival of such a relationship usually requires a great effort from the other partner.
The fact that the narcissist tends to make it all about themselves, means that even when you decide to share your own views or problems, they will indirectly link all of it to themselves and consider it to be a form of criticism.
You will always face trouble when it comes to sharing your emotions with them
If your partner is a narcissist, you will always face trouble when it comes to sharing your emotions with them. As nice as they may be at heart, they are poor listeners and often fail to accept any form of criticism.
And since they believe that they are entitled to any and every form of attention, they never feel guilty about it.
How to make a narcissist want you?
Making a narcissist desire you is a close to impossible feat.
Under normal and avoidable circumstances, we would tell you to walk away from the path that leads you to a narcissist. But even after all the warnings if you still want to be with a narcissistic person and their fake persona, then that’s totally up to you.
In order to survive in a relationship with such a person, you will have to make it all about the other person and almost forget about how you yourself feel.
If you have something that interests them, then that’s a plus. If not, you will have to do things to please them and will always to have to praise them.
By doing so, you will boost your partner’s false ego and in return make your partner want to be with you more. They may not particularly love you ever, but it is your constant attention that makes them want to be around you and that’s probably your best shot!
