6 Signs There’s A Moderate Narcissist In Your Life
Not all narcissists are created equal. As convenient as it might be to paint them all with the same brush, this complex personality disorder can be described as more of a spectrum than a singular, fixed, inflexible type.
This poses the problem of how to identify and respond to narcissistic abuse that may otherwise be confused with your more typical (and therefore more socially acceptable) relationship dynamic.
This moderate form of narcissism is often subtle and less easily detected, and while the resulting psychological damage to the victim may be less severe, it is nonetheless present.
So how do you spot a moderate narcissist? How do they differ from other narcissists and your regular person who doesn’t suffer from this disorder?
Lack Of Empathy Vs A Total Disregard For Feelings
Feelings that originate externally to the narcissist (i.e. those of other people) are seen as utterly foreign objects. Foreign like a language other than one’s mother tongue – almost incomprehensible; objects in the sense that they are abstract and devoid of life.
This is because all narcissists lack the empathy to step into another’s shoes and recognize the thoughts and emotions they may be having. There are, however, varying ways they may approach these alien bodies.
