YES: It is for the people in the narcissist's life. Narcissist's are insenstive mates. They invest in others to get something back. When there are two pieces of pie, the narcissist will consistently take the big piece. Narcissists often get off on making other people feel inferior & insignificant. The narcissist needs lots of strokes & admiration. Narcissists cause other pain.

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. Yes, it can be very serious.
