who /covert narcissist/ here
>I genuinely don't know who I am anymore
>I will never be able to form intimate relationship with anyone
I want to go back to thinking I'm a social retard with confidence issues
It isn't bad being a covert narcissist. It's better than being a victim.
Initiating relationships with others isn't my thing because I don't believe in dependence of anything whether it be drugs, medication, finance, or love. I only form relationships with others if I can benefit from them or take advantage of them in the long run.
I used to be a Narcissist. I still have some of the traits. Once you get past it, you realize how fucking delusional it all was. It's usually a coping mechanism, it was for me at least. You also probably treat the people around you like shit. Honestly, Narcissism is a mental illness and isn't something you should be proud of.
I was doted on and spoiled so badly growing up that I never had to do anything. Ever. At all. I was basically given participation trophies and showered with unjustified praise for my first 15 years
Also my dad is narcissistic so I guess I have the genes and the childhood environment to foster it. I'm literally the best person in this thread
>I used to be a Narcissist. I still have some of the traits. Once you get past it, you realize how fucking delusional it all was.
I'd say you probably weren't a Narcissist at all. Human beings have Narcissist traits.
>It's usually a coping mechanism
For me it wasn't. Having been raised in a toxic family, I got used to narcissistic traits.
>You also probably treat the people around you like shit.
2bh I always have even with people who claim to have my back but I act generous at first in order to get some friendship out of them. Being a Narcissist, you're also somewhat a perfectionist as well so if any of my friends or anyone that was close fucked up at any situation, it was an automatic back stab for them from me.
>Honestly, Narcissism is a mental illness and isn't something you should be proud of.
Better than being a depressed faggot who blames everyone or some delusional schizophrenic
I'm a narcissist because I used to be really ugly due to terrible acne and a terrible haircut for about 2 years of high school. Then I hit my growth spurt, started working out, and got ripped by the end of junior year. Got a haircut, and acne cleared up. Then it turned out that girls though I was really hot, like the hottest guy in school.
Friend who always offers support doesn't offer it this time when I need him/her so I start treating him like shit, start robbing his shit, humiliate him, start to ignore him, or don't even offer support myself
Friend doesn't back up me up with finance even when he is low on cash. I had this happened many times with a faggot who thought he could get the best of me so when he wanted me to help him tow his car because he had no cash, I ignored his bitch ass
Friend flirts with potential love interest. This has to be my favorite because usually I don't tell my friends my love interests and even when they like a picture on Facebook, I start to flirt with their GFs in person in front of them and it works since I'm charismatic. Actually slept with one of my best mate's girl back in High school.
After reading a couple articles I realised I'm actually a covert narcissist. I don't want to be this way...How to fix ;-;
I'm always told that I'm a narcissist, though I will forever deny it.
However, I've found myself shutting others down, constantly one-upping them, and incessantly striving to outdo anyone in anything, which, for the small amount of humans I interact with, always works.
I honestly son't think you're a narcissist, I think you're some insecure bitch finally getting some confidence.
I'm narcissistic as fuck but don't tell people or brag about it. It's not really something to brag about.
>think to myself that I'm so lucky that I look the way I do.
>have a great jawline, great cheekbones, great eyes, and a beautiful smile.
>experiences in day-to-day life only help reinforce this.
>after the gym in college, I like to stand around with headphones in and pretend to be listening to music
>in reality, I'm listening to people talk about me. >Always hear things like "he's so goddamn handsome"
I'm more of a realist than a narcissist for thinking that I'm better than all of you
Have literally fapped to my own reflection in the mirror before and developed other fetishes centered towards myself.
>mfw reading those articles painting coverts as malignants, evil sociopaths
>tfw cant tell if im a narcissist or just so socially deprived that i'd be an instantly better person if just met someone who gave a shit about me
no, but when someone tells me anything about themselves i just sort of zone out and wish they would go away, i genuinely don't care what anyone really wants to tell me about them unless it's something i'm interested in
>tfw friend knows im like a middle aged mother holding on to her Windows XP computer when it comes to tech but still tells me whole stories about how amazing apple is and uses all these terms and shit that i don't know
please just stop
i'd say all narcissists are either created out of inferiority complexes or being spoiled
>beta lives life always being behind and below everyone else
>beta grows bitter and starts relying on things like his better taste in music or interest in some nerd shit like psychology to convince himself he's still better than gullible normies
>beta slowly becomes more obsessed with himself as he feels more alienated by the normies + no one ever cares about him
went through this in hs, saw my friend go through it as well
I know that feel. Despite running arch I'm pretty retarded when it comes to computer shit. I only like my extremely specific setup and just get pissed off trying to do the simplest bullshit on Windows or apple. No amount of lol look at gaem or look at my mouse with one button will ever convince me. I could bore them to death with how I setup my tiling wm and the tweaks to my de or how fun using a torrent client or audio player without a gui is but I don't. OK, that was a lie, anytime they start blabbing about my computer I tell them how mine is better. The best part is I don't even knoknow how to linux. Itheld together by desperate Google searches and half assed hacks. It still beats the alternatives though. It seems the easier they make computers for retards to use the more laborious doing anything beyond facespace becomes.
Psychopath here. Narcissists are even weaker and more repulsive than normal people. At least the baselines are something unto themselves. You are parasites who depend upon them. I would suggest suicide, but most of you are probably too defective to contemplate your own deaths.
I don't know which is more pathetic; the fact that they care enough to talk about you or the fact that you care to hear them do so. You're just an animal. Your supposedly attractive countenance will fade in a short time, but your decrepit remains will last long enough to be mocked by children and infantilized by youths. Well, unless you die in an automobile accident. That would be terribly funny.
You are quite simply just a prick, the world is a horrible place because of people like you.
>tries to be "truthful" and hurtful as possible
>doesn't realise that no one will ever take you seriously especially when you try to talk in a wordy way
You're not very smart, arn't you?
Of course we're not. I don't need to manipulate others into constantly validating some deeply held belief in nonexistent greatness. I'm also capable of using others successfully in the long term, since my exploitative behaviors are born of simple amorality rather than an inexhaustible need to isolate, dominate, and control.
You think that was an attempt to be hurtful? If I wanted to be hurtful, I'd just link to the Wikipedia article on the Dunning-Kruger effect, which your kind just so happens to be the epitome of. Mostly, I just wanted to have a giggle at the expense of a bunch of losers who think that narcissism elevates them to the status of super villains.
I am clinically diagnosed with NPD.
It's great nost of the time until you fail then it's very, very bad.
Most of the time I feel like Wile e. Coyote before he notices he's been walking on thin air
>If you're not a narcissist, you're a pussy who got emotionally abused by one
This is why narcissists are retarded. Acting smug does not make your shortcomings any less real, the only one you fool is yourself and even that has its limits, knowing most narcissists blow up at any issue, like a Muslim on 9/11.
