Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a condition in which the individual has an inflated sense of importance. He or she is beyond vain to the point that they are completely obsessed and engrossed with none other than themselves. A narcissist is mentally unable to recognize or even care when their own self-absorbed tendencies are causing great harm to others. Sound familiar?

Do you feel trapped in your relationship with a narcissist who shows an extreme lack of empathy? Someone arrogant with rude and abusive behaviors or attitudes? Or someone who is highly reactive to criticism, have a low self-esteem, and react with anger or rage to contrary viewpoints? All the above traits are very common with people with a narcissistic personality disorder and studies have estimated approximately 17 percent of the general population as being narcissists.
