Narcissism is the inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity.

Psychoanalysis. erotic gratification derived from admiration of one's own physical or mental attributes, being a normal condition at the infantile level of personality development. (Note 1)

NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER One of the premier diagnoses of our times, narcissism is a reflection not only of an apparent trend in mental illness but also of the strains and distortions in the lives of essentially healthy people.— Robert Karen (Note 2)

As for narcissism studies, a new study has found that asking a single question accurately replaces a 40-question survey in order to identify a person with a narcissistic personality. The single question is this: "To what extent do you agree with this statement: 'I am a narcissist.' (Note: The word 'narcissist' means egotistical, self-focused, and vain.)" Participants are asked to rate themselves on a scale of 1 ("not very true of me") to 7 ("very true of me").

The study's authors have determined that a true narcissist doesn't mind being called one. (Note 3)

Narcissism is synonymous with "egoism" or "egocentrism." The disorder is named for the mythological Narcissus, who fell in love with his own reflection. (Note 3)

Hollywood (or, if you prefer Hollyweird) has long been associated with narcissism and pedophilia and/or child trafficking.

And, time has proven how dedicated a group surrounds and protects that particular group.

Because I do NOT want to bring "fame and fortune" to these disgusting samples of humanity, I will post the link to an article on that particular group along with prayers that justice will one day find them in a courtroom. (Note 4)

Another article addressing this very disgusting topic can be found in (Note 5) and shown to be true even by the alleged mainstream media outlets.

While we may have ideas of what narcissism looks like, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) lists nine traits and characteristics that are clinically significant in determining if someone’s super-sized ego may be something more than just self-confidence. At least five of the following traits must be exhibited to meet the diagnostic criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder. (Note 6)

Okay, now I expect many of you are reading information that brings to mind a textbook version of what we believe a narcissist "looks" like and/or perfect examples of narcissists we grew up around and survived.

We found a list of six lessor known signs and symptoms of narcississm and they are right on target: (Note 7)

Please, in order to protect yourself from the narcissist's abuse, mark these signs and symptoms well!

They will do everything they can to exploit you and their "hold" over you - if one exists.

Best thing anyone can do is to prevent that from happening.

After being raised by a textbook and addicted narcissist and right beside another textbook narcissist, pay attention!

Don't allow them to have control over you. Do not buy into their lies and fantasies. Do not allow them to play their games by trying to manipulate you.

They will make sure you are informed how brilliant they are. They will make sure you know how talented, creative and much better than you at life.

Trust me on this one: they are NOT!

In fact, so much truth has made it out into society about narcissism that the fallacy of their so called genius level IQ is not true.

Personally, I have seen first hand reasons to KNOW that narcissists are extremely dangerous to "normal" people. (Note 8)

While I am not an educated expert on Narcissism, as explained above, I was raised in an environment with two dangerous narcissists.

I survived.

But, it has taken years to reach the point where I consider myself, not just a survivor, but one who can readily and easily identify a narcissist and walk away from their bull crap with no qualms.

While we have barely scratched the surface, after seeing so many posts on Facebook and other potential breeding ground for narcissism, I personally believe the numbers of narcissists is on the rise.

The best possible way to insulate and protect oneself from the cruelty and assault of a narcissist, one needs to be able to recognize their games, their lies, they modus operandi.

Most of all, one needs to build their inner strength to the level they can turn and walk away from a narcissist.

And, I do mean walk away. Don't stop. Don't pass go. Don't go back. Ever!!

I promise you, that if you are facing assault in any form by a narcissist, you are not alone. Nor, can you defeat them by yourself.

One of the bravest and smartest things you can do is to surround yourself with all information you can gather on the narcissist community, and find individuals and groups near you who have dealt with and survived that same group.

I have said it before on here and I am not just repeating the words. I feel so strongly about protecting anyone in need of protection against narcissists that I am available 24/7 if needed.

Keep that in mind.

Also, if you have survived narcissism, please keep in mind that someone out there may desperately need your assistance.
