He's Lying Next To You...The Difference Between Psychopaths, Sociopaths, and Narcissists

Narcissists will always feel like they need to be the center of attention

A narcissist feels a constant need to be the center of attention. If, for whatever reason, the narcissist isn’t at the center of attention, he will likely display narcissistic rage.

The narcissist has a deep-seated emotional need to feel superior to other people. This self-importance is often an unhealthy coping mechanism for the narcissist’s repressed feelings of shame, self-loathing, inadequacy, and self-doubt.

The narcissist adopts a grandiose conception of his own importance to compensate for, and distract himself from, these inner doubts. He has a relentless need to feel important and in control.

Narcissists have an exaggerated, incessant need for attention, admiration, and praise. They believe they are always entitled to adulation. They expect, and demand, that others will essentially worship them- and they will always feel this way.
