Severe narcissism is one of the most complex and confusing psychological
phenomena, and its complexty?? explains why so much is written about it, and
why there remains a need to continue educating the public about it. The focus
of this article will be to address one facet of the disorder that remains so
mysterious. Specifically, people who are in close proximity to severe
narcissists often can't understand why the narcissist in their life can: be so
mean; get so jealous of their success or happiness; and be so competitive with
them, even when we're talking about two romantic partners.

One word that will help you understand the narcissist

To begin, the most helpful word in framing an understanding of the narcissist
is "counterintuitive." The most crucial point is that how the narcissist
presents on the surface is entirely different from how the narcissist feels
underneath. There are two "selfs" at work in the mind of the narcissist: their
real self, and the fraudulent, fantasy self they try to sell to the public.
Severe narcissists have a predatory, score-keeping approach to the social world
around them. The narcissist's daily life is spent fighting off potential
threats to their ego and proving themselves as superior to everyone around
them, and they have little peace of mind as they move through life. To
understand why the narcissist can be so mean in interpersonal relationships,
you must understand the unique motivations of the narcissist's intra-psychic
world or, in lay terms, what goes on inside the mind of a narcissist.

Most, if not all, severe narcissists were likely emotionally injured at a
crucial time in their development. Specifically, they were injured when they
were young children, a time when a child is highly impressionable, and when
that child hasn't yet figured out how to shore up psychological guards
(defenses) to ward off things that make them feel bad. When the young boy or
girl was emotionally injured, it probably took the following form: An authority
figure or even bullying kids at school humiliated them, subjugated them,
knowingly neglected them, or otherwise exploited them. To become severely
narcissistic later in life, the emotional injury in childhood had to be severe
enough that the individual arrived at the following (unconscious) conclusion:
No one will ever hurt me like that again; I will never let my guard down. Later
in life, this way of relating to people and the world has been practiced over
and over for so many years that the personality becomes largely locked into
place, and it is extremely challenging for the narcissist to let themselves be
exposed emotionally for very long at all. If someone or something threatens the
narcissist's ego, the narcissist abruptly shifts into predator mode.

Why narcissists can be so mean

In a moment, I will explain what happens when the narcissist shifts into
predator mode. First, however, it is important to understand why the narcissist
feels the need to fight so doggedly to begin with. In the mind of the
narcissist, the social world includes two strict categories: winners and
losers. There is no possible outcome they can conceive of in which everyone
gets their needs met. There isn't enough attention and praise for everyone to
go around, so according to narcissistic logic, only a few lucky ones will be
selected. Because of the way the narcissist was probably humiliated, unnoticed,
or subjugated in the past when it mattered most, the narcissist is also
motivated by making sure that they are never put down or overlooked again. When
the narcissist feels most threatened, it is because someone has said or done
something that makes the narcissist feel small, unnoticed, weak, or defective,
and the narcissist cannot allow anyone or anything to make him feel like that
under any circumstances. The narcissist's thinking goes like this: Any threat
to her or his temperamental ego must be identified and erased immediately. If
the threat continues, it must be annihilated by any means necessary.

If you put down the narcissist or humiliate them publicly, you will unleash
decades-old rage, and the narcissist will not stop until they feel you have
been verbally or emotionally decimated. (Keep in mind that what the narcissist
perceives as a slight is rarely objective.) People who haven't been in close
proximity to a severe narcissist would never believe the animalistic, ugly
wrath that spews from the narcissist when they are activated. Many boys and
girls, or men and women, who have suffered at the hands of an extreme
narcissist talk about how seeing such hate-filled "colors" in another human
being is traumatic in itself. (These same individuals also find it hard to ever
emotionally trust someone again who shows such unbridled, predatory rage.)

If you are in close proximity to a severe narcissist, understand that the
meanness and viciousness the narcissist displays when threatened or held
accountable is not personal. Narcissists can use words as bullets, zeroing in
on anything they can to unsettle and upset you. Being on the receiving end of
this behavior is horrifying and confusing. The recipients often turn to self-
help books or articles (like this one) to make sense of the experience, because
it is so traumatic and disturbing. Recipients often become sort of "armchair
therapists," learning about this personality disorder and trying to become an
expert on this type of personality to maintain their sanity. If you are in
close proximity to a narcissist, I will highlight what is important for you to
understand to move forward. At root, severe narcissists are highly abnormal men
and women who have a form of mental illness (a personality disorder). The root
of the disorder means that the narcissist, by definition, violates basic social
rules and social conventions. When triggered, especially, they don't show
empathy: They are entitled; they create their own reality from moment to
moment; and they don't really care about others' feelings. The rules or social
conventions that most elementary school children have already mastered are
absent in the adult narcissist. I use the following expression with clients
dealing with individuals like this: "They don't get it, but they also don't
want to get it."

To understand why narcissists can be so mean, you must understand that there
are no limits or boundaries when they get triggered (e.g., something makes them
look bad, countering the false, impermeable image they desperately try to sell
to themselves and to the world overall). Nothing is off-limits with the
narcissist when they are upset. No one else in the room has feelings when the
narcissist is overwhelmed by his or her own negative feelings. It's a true
onslaught, and to see someone who supposedly cares about and loves you
completely deny your - and everyone else's - reality and to rip you to shreds,
at times, is simply par for the course. If narcissists were foods approved by
the Food and Drug Administration, the sticker would read: "Can be extremely
malicious and destructive when provoked." Perhaps some men and women can handle
being occasionally treated in an abusive way, but I'm not sure that should be
the goal. The goal isn't to steel yourself against a loved one to the point
where nothing they say or do hurts you. Yes, you could play that game, but
what's the point of investing in a relationship that has no real emotional
intimacy? Moreover, what's the point in having a relationship with someone who
violates basic social rules that most third graders already subscribe to?

Why narcissists are so competitive and can't let you, figuratively speaking,

Because the narcissist's emotional scar involved them being unnoticed,
humiliated, or subjugated at a crucial point in their psychological
development, the overall topic of succeeding, shining, or getting noticed is a
so-called hot-button issue. It is a loaded issue, fraught with primitive and
unconscious memories, thoughts, and feelings. So many people in close proximity
to a severe narcissist feel confused about why the narcissist has such an
intense and often negative reaction when the other person feels really good,
succeeds, or shines. Here is where things get tricky and highly personality-
disordered. Oddly enough, the severe narcissist takes your success as a
reflection on them, but not necessarily in the way that you might be imagining.
The mind of the narcissist is a binary, all-or-nothing world. If you succeed,
their twisted logic tells them that your success means they failed. Someone
else succeeding or shining (especially someone close to them, whom they see all
the time) is actually upsetting (even unconsciously painful) because they see
your success as a missed opportunity for themselves to get a little love or
attention. While most people rightly believe that there is enough of all the
good stuff to go around - love, attention, respect - severe narcissists are
convinced that only a select few will get recognized. Sadly, no amount of
convincing will convince them otherwise. It is critical to understand that the
narcissist isn't competitive with you because they hate you or want to hurt you
emotionally. They do what they do because they are feeling emotionally deprived

Normal people are entirely confused about how the narcissist - or anyone, for
that matter - can go through so much of their life without ever having learned
and accepted some of the most fundamental social laws. Most third graders
already understand and follow these basic social conventions, so it is almost
hard to understand on a logical level how someone who looks like an adult and
is not cognitively disabled could act so much like a child. This issue broaches
the subject of another factor that underlies the disorder: oppositionality.

Oppositionality is an often overlooked part of the disorder.

Anecdotally, having worked with many children and teenagers who have
Oppositional Defiant Disorder, I have noticed an interesting overlap between
that disorder and adult Narcissistic Personality Disorder. The overlap is worth
examining, because it will help you to see how so much of the narcissist's
mental approach and behavior is inherently oppositional under the surface.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder (known as ODD in clinical circles) is a mental
disorder seen in school-aged children. The diagnosis includes the following
criteria: often loses temper; often argues with adults; often actively defies
or refuses to comply with adults' requests or rules; often blames others for
his or her mistakes or misbehavior; is often angry and resentful; and is often
spiteful or vindictive. If you are in close proximity to a narcissist, you see
the shared characteristics.

Children who have oppositional, defiant personalities and adults who have
narcissistic personalities are the way they are for a reason. There is no
strict biological basis for these complex, difficult personalities. Perhaps
biology plays a role, but my many years of experience with clients has shown
that something in the individual's emotional relationships early in life was
usually a major contributor (unhealthy parenting approaches, trauma, etc.). The
point is that the narcissist's personality got constructed in a highly
defensive way. For a personality to become so resistant, difficult, and all-
around abnormal, something abnormal in the individual's past had to take place
over a significant length of time or during an especially critical period in
that individual's development (perhaps within the first several years of life,
or what many call the "critical period").

For those in close proximity to the severe narcissist, they must understand
what, again, is counterintuitive. In other words, how the severe narcissist
acts with you often - especially when their ego or sense of power has been
threatened - has nothing to do with you.

What kind of a relationship can you have with a severe narcissist?

Given the highly abnormal relationship dynamic a narcissist requires, what kind
of relationship can you have with a severe narcissist? The answer isn't simple.
If you don't emotionally trigger the narcissist, you can have a semblance of a
relationship. There won't be real intimacy - because intimacy is about equals,
and narcissists can't do that, no matter what - but you can coexist. But if you
are someone who feels good about yourself, gets noticed and praised by others,
and holds themselves or anyone else accountable for major social or
relationship violations, there can usually be no relationship. To make it work
with a narcissist, you must alter your entire line of thinking with them in
this way: They have the power, they are in control, and they matter more.
Without adopting this skewed, counterintuitive framework, the narcissist, from
time to time, will always end up making you pay a price for the self-esteem you
