The dynamism of narcissism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

To understand the narcissistic existence we have to be aware of its inner dynamism. Narcissists seem to be strong personalities, in reality they are not. The power they want to gain at all costs, serves to gain absolute control. Primitive narcissists can easily be detected; the intelligent ones hide behind niceness, cooperation, success and good will. Narcissism is in essence a lack of self-competence; the me-dimension is too weak. For a full developed personality self-directedness, cooperativeness and self-transcendence is necessary. The lack of one of these dimensions leads to a lack in the other dimensions.
