Do you suspect the person you are dating or in a relationship with could have Narcissistic Personality Disorder? Are you simply looking for information on how to identify a toxic and potentially dangerous personality type before you lose everything?
Things to remember:
1. Only a licensed mental health professional can officially diagnose a narcissistic personality disorder BUT because of the nature of the disorder the person who has it does not and and will not admit they are the one with the problem. They will most likely not seek help or treatment. If they are forced to seek help because they fear losing control of the relationship or their partner they will either blame their behavior on someone else, deny it or lie about it entirely, and never take full responsibility for it or change.
It will be up to YOU to know the criteria of NPD and match up their behavior to the criteria and determine if it's worth the risk of the potential danger you could be in. Your knowledge of the disorder, their behavior match to the criteria may be the only confirmation you'll get AND it's the only one you really need. Your gut feeling is revealing the truth to you, even though you may not want to see it.
2. Do NOT seek answers about what you are confused about with a partner who could be potentially be abusing you. Privately and secretly call the National Domestic Violence Hotline @ 1−800−799−7233 or local Domestic Violence Center in your area to ask any questions you may have about the situation you are in. They are who you can trust. They are the ones who will give you an honest answer in what you are dealing with. They have not vested interest in whether you leave the relationship or not : However an abuser does, they do not want to lose control.. Contacting an outside agency is to help YOU determine if you are being abused and to assess the level of danger you could be in, even if you are NOT being hit .
Leaving an abusive partner IS the most dangerous time for a victim of abuse and should be planned with caution and very carefully.
3. The information YOU find out after your research on narcissistic personality disorder is for YOU only to determine the potential danger you are in. Do NOT share what you suspect or what you have found out your partner. If should be used for you to evaluate your level of danger and to quietly and secretly develop a safe exit plan out of this relationship if possible. Even if you have not been physically hit, or your partner still has periods of what seems like "nice, caring or good behaviors" you could be with someone is abusing you and is still very serious.
