Narcissistic Persona: Please reflect upon:
Exaggerating talents and achievements
Preoccupied with fantasies of beauty, power and unlimited success
Grandiosity in fantasy or behavior
Needing lot of admiration
Unwilling to be in tune with feelings and needs of others
It is not likely that you developed Narcissist personality disorder due to your parent’s Personality disorder
