In brief: 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.
