I am not sure if I should call Narcissism a mental disorder because way too many people have adapted narcissistic traits that it now seems normal. Basically, Narcissism is a mental disorder that makes you a negative person and puts you in misconceptions. Many people including myself now believe that almost everyone of today’s age have some signs of narcissism. We all have become at least a bit of narcissist without even realising. I bet you are most probably a narcissist too. If you are in doubt, see following top 7 and most common traits of narcissist.
You Think You are Better
You will deny it but on some level you think you are better than others. It is one of narcissistic traits to think high of oneself. When you sit in company, deep inside you believe that they are all lower than you even if you manage to hide it. Social media has actually played an important role in this. They have put you in this misconception because of the positive attention you get oline.
You are Always Seeking Attention
It is one of traits of narcissist that they are always seeking attention. Again you can deny it but you do want to be popular. You probably even fantasise about it. It is difficult for narcissist if they are not the centre of attention. Tell me a thing, why do you upload your pictures on social media sites? How good do you feel when people like or comment your pictures.
It is Difficult for You To Work in a Team
You can’t work in a team because you just don’t care about others. This narcissistic trait stops you from proper communication. You might work if you are a leader but you don’t want to take responsibilities too.
You Want Everything Perfect in Your Way
It is a sign of narcissist that they want everything perfect as they planned or imagined. And by perfect, I mean perfect in your own way not what others may like. It makes you feel bad if things are not the way you wanted them to be. After all you are a narcissist.
You Want to Control Everyone
One of the narcissistic traits makes you want to control everyone and everything. Of course, it is impossible still that’s the way you want things. You want people to speak and act the way you expect from them. Narcissistic people imagine in their mind how a person or a thing should be and then they feel bad when people don’t work that way.
You Don’t Accept Your Mistakes
You definitely want to be acknowledged and take credits for success but you don’t accept your mistake. It is one of narcissistic traits to blame people around you in any case of failure. You blame that it was their some sort of negativity that caused this otherwise this loss would never have happened. This is why I have been saying this in above points that you will deny it but that is how it is.
You Are Unintentionally Scared Deep Inside
It is actually a very big problem that your mind can deceive itself. Your own mind puts you in misconceptions. You may think you are better and stronger but actually you are really scared deep inside. You scared of being wronged, rejected or ridiculed. This fear even causes anxiety from time to time. Being scared is normal but the way narcissist unintentionally poison others’ life, is not cool.
These were the top and most common 7 narcissistic traits. How many of them do you think you have in yourself? If none then don’t you think that you have the 6th trait of narcissist of not accepting it. Well, think about it and make yourself a better person.
