Some of the characters to look out to include;
Crave for attention
A narcissist will want to be heard or be noticed most of the times. They try to fix themselves into spaces that they clearly do not fit. Others will raise their voices to prove a point while others will always be arguing most of the times. Such individuals will do anything in their power just to be noticed.
Think extreemly high of themselves
As much as it is adviced to think highly of yourself, it is different with such people. Their kind of thinking makes them feel like they deserve special privillages and treatments. Even without doing much, they expect praise and to be 'worshipped'. They at times exaggerate their achievements. Because of their nature, they expect favours without questioning.
They think they are never wrong
Among the most noticeable trait is that these people will never admit they are wrong. Due to the way they argue, they make it clear that they are always right.
They are envious of others
Envy or jealousy is a character that drives individuals to do anything. Basically, such will go to the extend of trying to copy someone else in order to enjoy the benefits the other person is enjoying
They are arrogant and brag alot.
As a result of their behaviours, such individuals may end up as loners. Some end up having low self esteem especially if they get bashed out or lack what they have been fighting for.
These people fight against their feelings but are always overwhelmed. In most cases, they will avoid instances that they will be seen as failures
However, there is always a solution to every problem. In such cases, talk therapy which is also known as psychotherapy comes in handy. Some, and even most of these patients want someone to listen to them, someone who is ready to understand them.
