Since narcissists are such expert con artists, how do you spot them? By not judging by appearances. Or reputation. 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


About sweetcardomom

I am a mother, grandmother and advocate for those suffering from the torment of emotional abuse regardless of gender, or who the abuser is. Emotional abuse can come from anyone around you whether personal or professional. Parents, spouses, lovers, teachers, siblings, co-workers, bosses, and even your therapist. I am a survivor and have grown a lot during the past few months. The struggle continues and so do I. Hoping to make a difference "One Person At A Time" ~ sweetcardomom
