Malignant Narcissism (MN) is a form of sociopathy that also has narcissistic features centered around aggression and violence. In theory, a person with MN idealizes their own aggression whereas a sociopath does not. Whilst a sociopath may be aggressive and violent they generally do not internalize their own behavior at all and so do not idealize their own behavior. A defining feature of MN is that the person is violent and takes pleasure in being so.
