Jennifer Lynn talks with Sabrina Victoria of Her Version Podcast about Narcissism or narcissistic abuse.
If you have heard of this personality disorder, it was more than likely used out of context, but we are here today to explain actual real life examples of what this abuse looks like and how we were able to manage and escape those situations.
For those of you that don’t know what Narcissistic personality disorder or NPD is… it is a pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a complete lack of empathy. These people only care about themselves and only think about themselves and what they want. No one else matters. They use psychological manipulation to intimidate and abuse the people closest to them. Her Version has created a short clip to explain a few of the main characteristics of this abuse. Listen in.
For the purposes of this podcast we will be referring to Narcissists as a person that has high narcissistic traits according to the REAL LIFE perspective of the individual speaking, but that does not mean that the person being referred to, has actually been diagnosed with NPD. Narcissist come in all sizes and can be male or female. They can be your partner, mother, father, friend or co-worker… or your boss.
There are over 30 characteristics that all narcissists can have.
