  1. This is great. People can have narcissistic traits and still lack the full complement of criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Nevertheless they can wreak havoc in other people’s lives and cause untold damage, in the absence of “full blown” NPD. I think the criteria for NPD should be simplified, anyway. The nine contain overlapping and, to me, confusing criteria. Dr. Burgo really nails this!

    1. I agree Laura. An inflated sense of self and a lack of empathy are enough to wreak havoc in other people’s lives and cause a great deal of damage without being a malignant narcissist.

  2. Nice summation. 🙂
