Note that every adult has at least some narcissistic traits or we would not have healthy boundaries or even sanity. The volume and quality of narcissistic traits fall on a continuum and are not necessarily unhealthy as previously explained. However, Individuals who have a narcissistic tendency tend to be opportunistic at the expense of others, have no respect for authority or other people, have little capacity to not objectify other people, a pathological self-absorption due to profound ego deficiency, as well as little to no ability for developing empathy.
Narcissistic Personality (NPD) is a diagnosis by a qualified clinician. Diagnosed individuals have extreme, pathological, and pervasive narcissistic tendency. By adulthood, it’s unlikely to have never experienced narcissistic trauma but that does not mean the perpetrator had Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
If you’ve had association with someone who has Narcissistic Personality Disorder or antisocial personality traits, you may have developed trauma reactions that involve mood disturbance, a state of heightened awareness or even loss of contact with reality, and more. The aftereffects from narc trauma do affect every part of a survivor’s life. We can help you overcome the limitations due to the trauma reaction. PTSD symptoms are likely but not every one has a PTSD diagnosis due to someone’s narcissism.
