Quora Answers: Psychopath, Sociopath, Or Malignant Narcissist?

Where Is The Line Between A Malignant Narcissist & A Sociopath? Are Sociopaths More Likely To Commit Murder And More Intense Things? Or Is A Malignant Narc Just As Intense? In my opinion, and from my experience as the wife of a Malignant Narcissist, they’re one and the same. Each is just as likely as the other to commit murder. Neither has a conscience or the ability to feel empathy. Neither has morals or ethics that prohibit them from the most heinous of sins. Throw in the term “psychopath” and you have a fitting description of my ex-husband. He tried … Continue reading Quora Answers: Psychopath, Sociopath, Or Malignant Narcissist?

QuoraAnswers: The Nurtured Narcissist

Can One Develop NPD Because Of A Spoiled Upbringing? Never Having To Take Responsibility, Never Criticized, Told They Were Special And Better Than Others? Never Challenged Or Disciplined? Most definitely. Your question describes my ex-husband’s upbringing perfectly, and he’s a Malignant Narcissist. He managed to acquire NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), as well as Antisocial Personality Disorder. He wasn’t diagnosed, of course. He doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with him, and has no need for therapy. But that doesn’t mean he’s not the poster child for someone who is Personality Disordered. He’s violent, sadistic, and extremely abusive to all living creatures. … Continue reading QuoraAnswers: The Nurtured Narcissist

Quora Answers: The Malignant Narcissist And Cluster-B Disorders

But anybody who has met one will tell you to avoid them at all costs. In my non-clinical opinion, they’re the most … Continue reading Quora Answers: The Malignant Narcissist And Cluster-B Disorders

Two Months After Surgery. Notice The Scar On My Neck. Did You Cheat On Your Narcissist? Yes, I did. Before I go any further, let me say that I’m not proud of it.

Quora Answers: The Slighted Narcissist

What Seemingly Immediately Happened When Due To A Perceived Slight, A Narcissist Became Angry At His Relationship Partner?

Whether the perceived slight was misconstrued, or intentional on my part, didn’t matter. Once he became enraged, all hell generally broke loose. For me, anyway. Sometimes he would spit in my face. Other times, I got dragged around by my hair. He almost always hit me in the head with his fist. At one point toward the end of the marriage, he punched … Continue reading Quora Answers: The Slighted Narcissist

Quora Answers: The Malignant Narcissist

Do Non-Malignant Narcissists Exist? If So, How Do They Behave? Yes, non-malignant narcissists exist. In fact, the majority of narcissists are not malignant. From what I’ve observed over the years, Narcissism appears to be on a spectrum. Similar to Autism Spectrum Disorder. But only because of the varying degrees of severity, depending on the individual. For example, I have known people who wouldn’t necessarily be candidates for Narcissistic Personality Disorder. But they were narcissistic enough to be obnoxious and unpleasant to associate with. Annoying? Yes. Very. But evil? Not necessarily. I would say this type is on the lower end … Continue reading Quora Answers: The Malignant Narcissist

Quora Answers: Narcissists And Strangulation

When A Narcissist Strangles A Victim, Will He Do It Again? Is It Likely That He’s Done It Before? Speaking from personal experience, I can almost guarantee a repeat episode. If a narcissist strangles a victim, it will happen again. And it most likely happened before. When I was still living with my Malignant Narcissist ex, I knew our 18-year marriage was coming to an end. Though at the time, I didn’t think I would survive it. And with good reason. I woke up one morning. And had barely gotten out of bed. When he grabbed me without warning. Before … Continue reading Quora Answers: Narcissists And Strangulation

Quora Answers: Are Children Disposable To Narcissists?

Does A Narcissist Parent Disappear When Their Children Recognize Their Lies? My Malignant Narcissist ex-husband did. And when he tried to come back months later, he attempted to hoover both our son and me. To say it didn’t work is a bit of an understatement. Colton is autistic. He doesn’t have a filter that prevents him from saying exactly what he thinks. So in no uncertain terms, he let his father know he was aware of his bullshit. And that he wasn’t going to be fooled again, It would’ve been funny if it hadn’t been so scary. As is typical … Continue reading Quora Answers: Are Children Disposable To Narcissists?

Quora Answers: Explanation Of Covert, Overt, And Malignant Narcissists

Why Not Covert & Overt Narcissists? Why Covert & Malignant Instead? What’s The Difference Between Overt & Malignant? The terms “covert” and “overt” are describe the type of behavior patterns and narcissistic tendencies that someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) displays to the world. Covert behaviors mean the affected person hides their narcissistic tendencies. Their actions are introverted, or closeted. They actively sabotage the lives of others. But they do it undercover. This makes it harder to identify whether or not they’re a narcissist. It also enables them to abuse people indiscriminately. But generally without ever coming under suspicion.
