Quora Answers: The Aging Narcissist

Does A Narcissist’s Behavior Get Worse With Age? The narcissists I’ve known certainly got worse with age. Much worse. I’ve read reports from psychologists who claim the opposite to be true. That narcissists mellow with age. And I disagree wholeheartedly. When a person with NPD begins to age, their human bodies may slow them down. Inside their devious minds, however, they don’t mellow. If anything, they become more bitter and miserable. My Malignant Narc ex-husband is a perfect example of going from bad to worse with age. Over the years, he became more and more abusive and downright evil. Finally, … Continue reading Quora Answers: The Aging Narcissist

Quora Answers: More Lies A Narcissist Husband Tells His Wife

Why Would A Narcissist Not Leave Marriage Due To Having Young Children And Claiming He Can’t Leave Because They Are Finally Old Enough For Him To Connect Emotionally And Be Able To Have Conversations?

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?

But I’d rather … Continue reading Quora Answers: Recognizing Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Are Malignant Narcissists Considered To Be Neurotypicals? Oh Lord, no. No. No. Definitely not!! There’s nothing neurotypical about a Malignant Narcissist.
