What is Narcissism?

One publication characterizes narcissism as a combination of the following traits:

  • A grandiose sense of self-importance;
  • A preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love;
  • A need for excessive admiration;
  • A lack of empathy;
  • Exploiting others for personal gain;
  • Envy of others or a belief that others are envious of him or her; and
  • A demonstration of arrogant behaviors towards their spouse or others.

See Sheenie Ambardar, MD, et al., Narcissistic Personality Disorder (May 16, 2018) (citing Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (2013)), available at https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1519417-overview#a1

While the term “narcissism” is used quite frequently in our society, it has been our experience that the lack of empathy-ability to experience and understand what others may be physically or emotionally feeling-and demonstration of arrogant behavior, becomes the most visible traits. We commonly see this expressed by one spouse trying to control the other through intimidation, superiority, or unwillingness to compromise no matter what it means for the other spouse as long as they “win” in this dissolution process.

Does this sound familiar to you? Because of this, are you worried about what the divorce process may look like for you? Are you worried about getting treated unfairly or getting the raw end of the deal just to get away from your spouse? Do you have concerns about the divorce process because your spouse may attempt to control or bully you by hiding assets or refusing to be fair? Before you settle to just get away from your spouse, let BTL Family Law help you. You do not need to go through this process alone. We understand these types of people and deal with them on a daily basis-so you do not have to.
