what are commonly the past experiences of a person who became a narcissist?

do a psychiatrist just reprogram the subconscious mind of a narcissist to cure his illness?


  1. In response to your second question:
    The therapist will tend to cajole the client into accepting his current state and offer him suggestions for moving toward a more positive view of himself and the world around him.

  2. One type of experience is when parent(s) fawn over a child, take credit for his accomplishments, show too much disapproval when he’s imperfect, are never satisfied with him even though they brag about him to their friends, tell the child how he should feel, and form an enmeshed relationship with him.
    The child forms a personality that is very self-involved because their parent(s) were very self-involved. They have an exterior that may be very difficult, demanding, entitled, but inside they are fragile and vulnerable.
    The psychiatrist can’t reprogram this person. All they can do is try to gain the trust of the person so he starts becoming curious about his negative interactions with others. The curiosity may lead to exploration and the narcissistic person might decide to become more adaptive to their environment. But usually they stay the same because it’s a very comfortable behavior for them. They don’t feel like there is any problem.

  3. From an other question I gave answer to:
    ‘Do most people who are mean to others suffer from depression?’
    My guess is no, because most sadists, that is those who are neurotically compelled to inflict and control are also narcissistic or megalomaniac and experience a different kind of sense for self worth that is more like an ecstasy or euphoric high than an equality ideal. The sadists self concept is blended with some kind of superstition or religion of a distorted nature. This abnormally self aggrandized perception is discovered in many serial killers and racist fanatics. The probable basis for depression is transformed chemically differently in the manic psychotic, so that what would produce depression is redirected to a different mode of production in the brain feeding the high rather than the low. My explanation for that is, the ability for self reflection is destroyed or superimposed over to mask its existence as its self (the redirection), what would be guilt and shame is revalued as a plus, the struggle, which makes one great (the superstition), all that is negative becomes the Will, and what would have been normal Will becomes an evil distraction as temptation or degradation, but such people are usually hypocrites (the raping for women and men in some cases).
    see Robert William Pickton or Son of Sam killer.
    To your question in addition to what is written above: in the destruction for self reflection, the rejection for shame and guilt is based on the endurance for suffering ethic, that a great person does not succumb or bend to such emotions but drives on to their accepted goals for their ideal. Such a condition for its perpetuation needs a self anesthetizing ability inducing a self hypnotic condition, a buffer against the pains of social rejection. This ability is developed in the painful condition of the childs experience with their parents idiocy.
    If I were a psychiatrist with such a patient, I would teach the Maslow theory for human fulfillment and other essential theories as list below.

  4. I think the past experiences of a child whom may have been brought up to have no regards to the feelings of other to have no empathy of their surroundings and to feel like they do no wrong and when they do they do not get reprimanded and instead they are shown that it is only their world and there for can do what they want.
