Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Postby lisnte2you » Fri Nov 13, 2020 5:08 am


I'm wondering if I am a narcissist? I watched the entire video and realize I have most of the symptoms.

I don't have too much empathy for other people and I'm very selfish.

What do you guys think?

You should never diagnose yourself on the back of a Youtube video. Narcisism is a normal human being thing. Obviously when it becomes more extreme and starts to impact your life you might need to speak to someone about it. But you need to speak to a doctor or mental health practitioner. No one here can diagnose you even if you did say more about your 'symptoms" There are plenty of selfish people in the world but it doesn't make them mentally ill, just rather selfish. And it's a big leap from that to a personality disorder.

If you're worried then maybe speak to your GP about it all. No one here is qualified to help with that.

The fact that you do care to look into that makes me feel a bit hopeful for humanity.
