The world is full of people with a subset of attitudes and behaviors that are shaped by the individual’s genetics and experiences. One of the most dangerous behaviors a person can exhibit is called narcissistic behavior.
Narcissistic behavior is a specific type of behavior that follows a pattern of actions that characterize an excessive interest in oneself without any regard for the people and environment around them. People exhibiting this behavior pose a significant danger and are very destructive in environments like the retail business and other work-related positions. This behavior is juxtaposed with virtuous actions, which means that a person with narcissistic behavior will do things for the greater good.
Narcissistic behavior has a specific subset of actions and patterns that people can easily identify and distinguish. It is very important to identify people with this behavior so that you can keep yourself safe and give them the help they need.
A person with narcissistic behavior tends to have an overinflated sense of self-worth, unearned confidence, and characterized arrogance. This means that you must check if the person can both talk the talk and walk the walk.
People exhibiting narcissistic behavior tend to have grandiose fantasies of their achievements, love life, actions, success, and power. You must discern if the person has those grandiose fantasies and interacts with those said fantasies. Note that the fantasies have to be something very significant.
One of the worst patterns of actions a person with narcissistic behavior will do is they will take advantage of other people to prop themselves up. This means that people with narcissistic behaviors will do actions that will increase their self-image while decreasing the self-image and credibility of the people around them.
People with narcissistic behaviors cannot empathize and identify with other people. This lack of empathy will lead them to actions that will hurt and victimize other people without regard for their feelings and well-being.
Narcissistic behavior can have many causes that come from extrinsic factors. One of these extrinsic factors is found in the environment around them. If the person has a lot of loved ones that prioritize and value concepts that are narcissistic and proud, then this might lead to the person internalizing said concepts into themselves. Humans are social creatures that value interaction and social stances. If the media around them encourages narcissistic behavior then it will lead to the person exhibiting such behavior fitting in. The person’s culture and ethnicity can also affect and incur this behavior. Some eastern cultures tend to lean more towards collectivism, which puts higher importance on fitting in and maintaining a social image.
Behaviors and attitudes have so many interconnected intricate factors that interplay and intermingle with each other. This means that behaviors and attitudes have various extrinsic and intrinsic roots. This is true for narcissistic behavior, in which genetics and physiology can factor in and cause said behavior. Narcissistic Personality Disorder or NPD is a personality disorder that will innately cause narcissistic and apathetic behaviors to emerge. One of the leading causes of this disorder is inheritance and genetics. Scientists have discovered that some people with NPD have less gray matter on the left side of the brain when compared to the normal human brain. This defect can lead to the person’s low empathy, compassion, and emotional regulation.
Narcissistic behavior is very dangerous as the person exhibiting the characteristics of this behavior tends to put themselves ahead of everyone else around them. This will lead to the person bullying, gaslighting, and abusing people they perceive as a threat to their grandiose fantasy and ego. Not only will the people exhibiting this behavior put down other people regardless of their relationship, but their reduced empathy will lower the quality of life of the people around them. This can lead to a miserable state of life that can lead to the development of various adverse conditions.
Narcissistic behavior is a type of behavior that refers to a specific subset of actions and patterns that align with narcissistic attitudes, goals, and objectives. This type of behavior is very dangerous to both the person exhibiting the behavior and the people around them. The overconfidence of the person can lead them into situations that they may not be able to handle while making the people around them live out miserable lives. Therefore, it is very important to know how to identify people exhibiting these behaviors and patterns.
