Red Flags of Malignancy

Red Flags of Malignancy

A specific behavior, such as being haughty, inconsiderate, or ignoring someone, can occur in widely varying contexts. So, it can be done for many reasons, not just narcissistic reasons. Nonetheless, there are few behaviors so unique to persons suffering from NPD that they should serve as red flags.

Here are eight red flags:

· puts on a conspicuous display of goodness and kindness
· damages the images of most others
· has a history of past upheavals
· is hated for mysterious reasons by people close to them
· exhibits unnatural and perplexing behavior — backwards reactions to things
· is a control freak, trampling privacy/boundaries
· is extremely self-absorbed
· has a hostile reaction to attention and credit given others
