Do narcissists typically brag that they are heartless, cold

Customer Question

Do narcissists typically brag that they are 'heartless, cold blooded or lack sympathy' to others? I was under the impression that they think they are perfect, so such statements are confusing.

Hello,

The behavior that you describe-"'heartless, cold blooded or lack sympathy" would definitely not be terms that narcissistic individuals call themselves Rather they would describe themselves in just the opposite fashion. They would use glowing, grandiose, self inflating descriptions. They see themselves as near perfect without fault I hope that helps

 

Sincerely,

Ralph LMHC

I live with someone who displays Narcissitic tendencies (infidelity, bragging, extremely self centered, boastfulness, and arrogant) and he makes these types of statements. I was just wondering is it really narcissism or something else.

It is not narcissistic personality disorder It is just the opposite
