Covert narcissism?

First of, I'm not asking anyone to psychoanalize me, I'm just wondering if anyone could relate.

I've always been an 'introvert'. I find it hard to open up to people and be relaxed around them. I'm very conscious of how others percieve me and I easily feel rejected. But for someone so sensitive I'm strangely cold. I don't think I've ever felt sorry for somebody or cared about somebody else's problems. I can never relate ...

Do you ever worry about old age or dying alone?

Does anybody here ever worry about old age or dying alone? I see a lot of people with NPD expressing that they don't care about the inability to have long term relationships, how walking away is so easy, how you don't really have a care for the other person when you walk away from them.

But do any of you ever worry how this "now now now" strategy will play out in the long term? ...

Am I projecting

Something I’ve noticed lately is I tend to look down on or even despise people for having the same issues I’ve had or doing the same sort of things. For instance I quite smoking atleast 10 years ago but I did smoke and now I look at people who smoke as disgusting losers with the will power of a pineapple. I do the same thing with other things as well, if I’m eating right I ...

Extreme plastic surgery

Do people who go to extremes with plastic surgery have NPD? You know the ones, huge injected lips that look ludicrous, fake boobs, fake ass implants, facelift till their eyes touch their forehead. Or is it a body dysmorphia or maybe something else? What drives people to such extremes that they actually look terrible? It has to be connected to a mental illness of some sort.

Anger

I'm exploring feelings...
What do you think of anger?
People here are supposed to feel anger easily - or maybe it's just an image
i feel anger is quite a positive feeling
at least better then depression - even if they can have sometimes the same source

Compliments

I'm curious about how you feel about compliments.

Do you like them or do you dislike them?

I'm curious too about how you feel about being offered help.

I tend to like both of them, unless i'm unsure of their sincerity. But i met some people who dislike them.

I'm curious of your experience and possible ambivalence?

Realizing the loss

I am good at ending friendships - and for myself there were everytime reasons to finish it.
However, after breaking up with some friends, I suddenly felt sad.
I realized that I felt connected to them - and despite of some arguments and a different view of life - I adored them in some way. I ended this ,,chapter" because of ending my studies, and terrible memories about the job I did during university - ...

research on covert narcissism vs dsm's narcissistic PD

i was wondering if anyone has researched much on covert narcissism vs the more "garden variety", classic narcissism, or more typical presentation of narcissism, specifically what the dsm has for narcissistic personality disorder.

because in my opinion, from my research and experience, they are completely different, or at least, they should be distinct conditions, now of course, because neither overt or covert are mentioned in dsm criteria, only in research literate which are randomly dispersed ...

Self destructive behavior: climb to the top again

I used to dwell in these forums years ago, mainly in the SPD forum. I mostly have "features" of schizoid and narcissistic personality and I'm probably dysthymic.

In real life I learnt to easily blend with society, have a normal job and superficial relationships with people. Even though everything is going well for me, sometimes I feel the need to "reset" things and I learnt that this is called self destructive behavior.

When I finally ...
