If someones entitled has a lack of empathy, exploits others, whatever they are, find a way to safely get out and stay out.
People who have the narcissist personality disorder are extremely self-centred, they are arrogant, they exploit those around them, they lack the empathy to care for those they hurt, they are often very envious of others achievements, they believe they are special and feel entitled to receive excessive admiration, they are often preoccupied with their idea of power and success.
Those who have the disorder are very reluctant to change, as they go around, causing endless problems and heartache to those who love them. Yet, the narcissist will blame the very people the narcissists’ actions are hurting for why the narcissist themselves is not living the life that narcissist believes themselves to be entitled to.
The grandiose narcissist is often a very grand flamboyant individual, usually intelligent and extremely good with people.
They are extremely successful at drawing people in with ease. They may own and run their own business and can be very talented individuals. Often they are extremely popular. People adore them and want to be around them. They are ambitious, highly driven with very high energy levels.

Grandiose narcissists are more aware of their admiration face and their need to pass off an image of perfection to the outside world, often overestimating their own capabilities to themselves and to others. If they fail to live up to their own high standards, they blame others and often hold grudges against those they accuse.
Grandiose narcissists are often the ones where one or two people see their envious face. Yet, if they speak out to others, the people they speak to continually enable the narcissist’s behaviour usually unwittingly say, “really, they’re great with me.” As the grandiose narcissist uses their superficial charm to love bomb people into believing they’re someone they’re not.
Grandiose narcissists often come across as having very high self-esteem as they exaggerate their achievements to sell themselves to those around them, usually to cover their deeply hidden insecurities that they themselves might not be aware of, if they are, they’ll make sure no other become aware of them, as they boast about themselves and their achievements to keep up their image in the eyes of themselves and those around them.
The grandiose narcissist is extremely manipulative with gaslighting. Often they use psychological abuse over physical abuse; they will smear anyone who the narcissist believes had gone against them. Usually, due to the narcissist (somatic.), those with the looks, ( Cerebral.) those with the intellect, charm, popularity and fan club, people will tend to believe the narcissists grandiose lies.
Grandiose narcissists often see themselves as better than others and their arrogance.
- Unpleasantly proud of themselves, often putting others down, to raise themselves up.
- They cannot see their weaknesses.
- They cannot see their own mistakes.
- Refusal to admit fault.
- Regularly breaks agreements.
- Rarely to never saying sorry. “I’m sorry for you.”
- Flaunts success.
- Argumentative with others, yet blames others for the argument.
- Complains when things don’t go their way.
- Pushy and loud.
- Always wants to be in control, very demanding.
- Points out other peoples flaws.
- Averse to criticism.
- Always puts their needs before others.
Often this comes across as confidence. As the grandiose narcissist holds their belief within themselves that they are special, they can seemingly be confident within themselves.
The grandiose narcissists are incredibly dominant and very charming, which draws people to them. They easily seduce, and when their needs are no longer being met, they move quickly onto the devaluation and discard phase. When their attempts to exploit others aren’t successful, or their demands and self-entitlement are not being met. They have anger and rage. They will destroy others that don’t conform to their demands.
Recognising patterns of other people’s behaviour helps us walk free from their behaviour and stops us from giving chances to those who no longer deserve our chances.
