The effects of narcissism can initially be very subtle and deeply insidious.It sneaks up on you and permeates and pollutes every aspect of your being.Importantly, I will state narcissistic enmeshment and damage can occur in relationship in life.It could happen with a parent, a child, a friend or a business partner. The information I'm writing about in this article relates to high-level narcissism.However the damage of narcissism (point two) is extremely evident.
There are no firm statistics available in regard to the frequency of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD).
Statistically, women are at greater risk than men for narcissistic abuse.
Essentially women, who are more inclined to be the caretakers and empaths of society, will tolerate and hang on to narcissistic relationships more than men will (generally).
Most narcissists aren't in therapy, and even if they are, may not be diagnosed as NPD.
Psychologists freely admit this, as well as the frustration and impossibility of working effectively with NPD's.
The remaining ones will only do a few sessions at most. What is frightening is: narcissists are extremely emotionally insecure (despite the outer charisma) and seek love partners frenetically.
