Cosmopolitan details 10 Traits of Narcissists

This is an excellent run down by Cosmopolitan magazine, of Ten Traits of Narcissists.

, the author of that article, has done an excellent job. Her post is clear and to the point.

There is a link further down, so that you can read Kira Peikoff’s complete article on the Cosmo website.

From her list, Traits #1, #2 and #10 I fully agree with. Trait #10 is also not often spoken about.

1. Narcissists have zero tolerance for shame.

2. The fragile, insecure core of a narcissist has roots in childhood.

10. Narcissists are emotionally stuck at a toddler’s age.

From her list, Trait #9 I disagree with. Narcissists are hard wired. No amount of trying to motivate them to change will succeed.  The only way that a Narcissist would change is if you suddenly became a high grade Source of Narcissistic Supply.

For example if you won a multi million dollar prize in a lottery. That would turn you into top high grade Source of Narcissistic Supply. A Narcissistic will look up to a such a High Grade Source of Supply and could change to keep such a Source of Supply. That is until the Narcissistic has found an even Higher Grade Source of Supply.

9. Narcissists may be motivated to change if there is a meaningful consequence to their bad behavior.
