WHAT TYPES OF NARCISSISMS ARE THERE, AND HOW WOULD ONE KNOW WHICH TYPE THEY’RE DEALING WITH?


Narcissistic personality disorder is the diagnosis.

People with the disorder are distinguished by which type of narcissism they have, based on their actions.

There are 3 categories:

1. Exhibitionist

2. Closet

3. Toxic

People diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, who are classified as an exhibitionist, are the stereotypical grandiose narcissist. Their behaviors are extroverted.

They’re the ones who always have to be the center of attention.

They do not hide their belief that they are superior to others.

They’re also bullies who will not hesitate to yell at waiters and subordinates.

Their behaviors are overt, or not hidden.

The closet, or covert narcissist, has a completely different persona.

He may seem withdrawn or inhibited. Unlike the overt, grandiose behaviors of the exhibitionist, the closet narcissist hides his narcissistic behaviors. Their behaviors are introverted.

The toxic, or malignant narcissist, is sadistic and horribly cruel. Like all narcissists, they enjoy creating drama and chaos in the lives of their victims.

The toxic narcissist, however, takes it up a notch. They are the ones most likely to seriously injure or murder their victims. They are prone to violence, and use intimidation techniques to cause fear in their victims.

Regardless of category, all narcissists have to meet 5 of these 9 criteria to be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder:

  • a sense of self-importance or grandiose behavior
  • fantasies about being influential or famous
  • exaggerating their abilities and accomplishments
  • craving admiration and praise
  • preoccupied with beauty, love, power, or success
  • entitlement
  • believes themself to be unique or special
  • exploiting others
  • lacking empathy
