What is the narcissistic personality disorder?

Much Self-Importance: It's a condition in which there is an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with oneself. As with all personality disorders, a mental health professional diagnoses the disorder after a psychological evaluation of the history and severity of the symptoms. Psychotherapy (talk therapy) may help a person with the disorder improve functioning and relationships with others.

Narcissism: The hallmark of a narcissist is an immense ego, grandiosity, and self-importance, as well as being entitled, and a tendency to use and objectify others as well as thinking of people in all-good or all-bad terms instead of shades of gray. The core of a narcissist is profound insecurity. Narcissists often tend to think they are amazing, but others may not agree.

Grandiosity: The hallmark of a narcissist is grandiosity, feelings of being special, inability to empathize with others, and intolerance of criticism of any kind, real or imagined. The core of a narcissist however, believe it or not, is terrible self-esteem that the narcissist cannot bring him or herself to look at.

Start Treatment: Recognizing that you have this is the only way to opening the door to treatment. Get treatment from a professional. Then implement this by: praying to god as though everything depends on god, but work as though everything depends on you.

See below: We all have different personality traits at certain points in our lives. If you need to know your diagnosis, you will have to be evaluated face-to-face by a psychiatrist or a psychologist. Some things just cannot be diagnosed over the internet :)
