classification of Narcissism

  1. Normal Narcissism,
  2. Abnormal Narcissism &
  3. Pathological Narcissisms :

Narcissistic traits or Narcissism are also seen among persons with Hysteronic PD, Paranoid PD, ASPD, Hypomaia, Mania, ‘Average/low-average Intelligent persons’ who are the children of Parent/s with NPD or who are living in a pathologically Narcissistic environment or Narcissistically brain washed by close person/s with Narcissistic PD, Political leaders or Rulers and Extraordinarily Intelligent or Thinking Persons with Intact self integrity …. etc

A. Hysteronic PD:
Narcissism seen here will be a default narcissism/traits which will be mixed version of Normal and Abnormal Narcissisms… and never be pathological unless such persons are having narcissistic personality disorder as comorbid one…

B. Paranoid PD:
….. usually normal narcissism and rarely goes to abnormal type and never be pathological.

C. ASPD:
…. purely default narcissism and more likely abnormal one and usually situationally exhibited …

D. Hypomaia: usually and more likely “classically* normal” narcissism exhibited here 😊

E. Average/low-average Intelligent persons who are the children of Parent/s with NPD or those who are living in a pathologically Narcissistic environment or Narcissistically brain washed by close person/s with Narcissistic PD:
Narcissism exhibited by these persons will be ‘classically* an “abnormal” narcissism or abnormal narcissistic traits’ which will be highly damaging to the persons who exhibit themselves, compared to that by NPDs with pathological narcissism ☹️

F. Political leaders or Rulers: these exhibits both Abnormal and Normal Narcissism depending on the situation…. unless he/she is having Pathological narcissistic traits (persons with mild-moderate and above severity pathological narcissistic pd are very rarely can become a political leader by their own efforts)

G. Extraordinarily Intelligent or Thinking Persons with Intact self integrity:
… classic normal narcissism is exhibited by these upholding the self integrity and ensuring the self appraisal 🙂
