Are Malignant Narcissists Considered To Be Neurotypicals?
Oh Lord, no.
No. No. Definitely not!!
There’s nothing neurotypical about a Malignant Narcissist.
A neurotypical is someone who doesn’t have Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
To be more precise, it’s someone who doesn’t display any atypical neurological patterns of thought or behavior.
A Malignant Narcissist is the absolute worst type of creature you can imagine.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, doesn’t recognize it as a formal disorder.
But anybody who has met one will tell you to avoid them at all costs.
In my non-clinical opinion, they’re the most vile of all narcissists. By far.
The main distinction is that they suffer from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, as well as another disorder, such as Antisocial Personality Disorder.
Other common traits they’re known for is being sadistic, aggressive, and paranoid.
Synonyms for a Malignant Narcissist are psychopath and sociopath.
As you can see, there’s nothing normal or neurotypical about them.
After answering this question on Quora, I was asked if it’s possible for Malignant Narcissists to have BPD and HPD present at the same time as NPD and ASPD.
(Basically all Cluster-B Disorders present in one person.)
This is my response:
I believe so.
Since I’m not a psychiatrist, I can only give you my perspective from a layman’s point of view.
But in a way, I may be more qualified to answer your question because I was married to a Malignant Narc for 18 years.
At one time or another, he presented as having every single Cluster B disorder known to man.
Not necessarily all at once.
But it was definitely hard to know which disorder I was going to be dealing with from one day to the next.
His case is extreme.
I’ve known a lot of narcissists in my life.
But he’s the only one I ever considered to be truly Malignant.
Because of the lack of research available, I don’t know any statistics.
I would venture to guess that his type is rare, though. Thank God.
I can tell you that he ranged from extremely sadistic, to histrionic, to borderline and antisocial on any given day.
When we met, he was 31.
He was either better able to manage his behavior back then, or age made him progressively worse.
When he hit his 40’s, he began to decompensate.
The older he got, the worse he became.
I know there are studies that claim narcissism gets better as one ages.
They didn’t study my ex-husband.
