In Summary, how do Narcissists pick their female partners?

Below are three key quotes from Sam Vaknin’s presentation:

Usually, they choose for partners submissive women whom they disdain for being well below their intellectual level.


They team up with women who serve as Sources of SNS (Secondary Narcissistic Supply). The woman’s chores are to accumulate past Narcissistic Supply (by witnessing the narcissist’s “moments of glory”) and release it in an orderly manner to regulate the fluctuating flow of primary supply and compensate in times of deficient supply.


Most male narcissists are misogynists. After all, they are the warped creations of women. Women gave birth to them and moulded them into what they are: dysfunctional, maladaptive, and emotionally dead. They are angry at their mothers and, by extension at all women.

The Narcissist is always “testing the waters“, always looking for a new source of Narcissistic Supply, The potential New Targets are almost always below the Narcissist’s Intellectual level, otherwise the Narcissist would not get the rush from feeling “superior”.

A very good additional article which sheds more light is Titled:
