I’m so tired of hearing about all of the so-called narcissists that so many people complain about. Definitely there are some people that would genuinely be classified as having NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), but certainly not everyone. In fact, it’s a very difficult disorder to accurately diagnose, since the majority of people have at least some narcissistic tendencies at times. What I find almost amusing is that it’s so common for the people who call another person a narcissist for whatever reason are often displaying as many, or more, narcissistic behaviours as the person they are accusing! Before being so quick to label someone a narcissist, please people, do some serious research into this disorder (it’s widely available online) and you will probably learn that even YOU have narcissistic behaviour at times. One of the biggest clues that could pinpoint a person with genuine NPD is that they almost never look for psychiatric or other psychological help such as counseling on their own. Usually the only time you’d find such a person in a therapist’s office is when they’ve been dragged there by a frustrated partner.
