This is a perfect and almost exact description of two sociopaths I was unfortunate enough to have known. One even went so far as to change his name. These are the types of individuals who become involved in gang-stalking and strategically destroying other human beings. Not surprisingly, these traits are common in both politicians and murderers. This is how they operate...
This explains it well. All the symptoms and other info about someone who suffers from Narcissists Personality Disorder. They will lie to make themselves look good. they thrive on other peoples lives instead of focusing on their own. They are obsessed with drama.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder..... He appeared so normal to me but I have seen every side to him now and it is terrifying. These narcissists are usually able to hide their abnormal behavior around co workers and family etc, but because I was in constant contact with this guy 24/7, he couldn't hide his distorted mind from me.
Narcissism is not a choice. It is a personality disorder & is not curable. Some children of narcissists become narcissistic due to the trauma of having a narcissistic parent. Others can pick up some of the behavior / traits due to the environment they grew up in. Not all children of narcissists become narcissistic.
