Selfishness: In a word, selfishness. It's a bit more complex than that but basically people with this personality type will opt for choices that are most likely to put them in the best light, even at the expense of others. Everybody has a touch of narcissism but those with the personality disorder struggle with being liked and having empathy.

Never satisfied: Needy and demanding, no matter how much love or attention they get, they feel they deserve more. Can be charming if convenient for them. Arrogant and out of touch with reality. In the rare moments of reality check, they behave like victims. Envious, they feel they deserve special love and privileges. Angry at the loved ones because they are not giving them enough. Don't care about others feeling.

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.
