Over the past several years and recent days, I have been asked this question again and again. Here are some questions to think about?
Following are ten questions to ask yourself to help determine if you might be developing a relationship with a narcissist.
1- Do they often talk about themselves and their accomplishments?
2- Do they have a tendency to belittle or criticize others?
3- Do they have an inflated sense of self-importance?
4- Do they expect special treatment or to be put on a pedestal?
5- Do they have a lack of empathy for others?
6- Do they have difficulty maintaining healthy relationships?
7- Do they have a need for constant validation and admiration and have a sense of superiority over others?
8- Do they have a tendency to manipulate and exploit others for their own gain?
9- Do they have a tendency to blame others for their own mistakes and take little or no responsibility?
10- Do they have a history of being controlling or abusive towards others?
These are but a few things to consider!
