Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behaviour, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronising, and demanding. Most narcissists have a number of similar traits. However, there are small differences!
- The one with humour
The funny narcissist has humour and is loved by many people. They make people laugh and this naturally strokes their ego. Often this person uses their humour to disguise other shortcomings in interpersonal relationships. They’ll be insensitive to any problems in a relationship. This type of narcissist may tell their partner that they’re ruining the atmosphere or ask why they can never be happy. This can make a partner feel insecure or sad. A narcissist with humour often chooses light-hearted things in life and prefers to avoid difficult situations and conversations as much as possible.
2. The friendly one
The kind narcissist often produces just as much frustration as the funny narcissist. They’ll show their friendly side to the outside world as much as possible. They help a friend, an acquaintance or even a stranger. Their partner will be treated with much less love. This can be very frustrating for the partner. Everyone around sees them as a hero, but no one truly knows how this person treats their partner. They’ll want to maintain a certain public image in order to disguise shortcomings on an emotional level.
3. The angry one
This type of narcissist is easy to infuriate and is often angry when things don’t go the way they would’ve liked. This is the case, for example, if the partner mentions a problem or a feeling the narcissist isn’t waiting for or can’t do anything with. An angry narcissist is easily attacked and will react verbally at such moments.
