Narcissist. We hear this term often in our consultations. When asked whether the other party has been medically diagnosed as a narcissist, the answer is unanimously, "no." What exactly is a narcissist? Other than they are one of the most challenging personalities to tolerate, they deliberately cause conflict in any family law matter.
When we Google the term, in less than a second, Oxford defines it as "a person who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves." According to the MayoClinic, this is a personality disorder where one is impatient or angry when they do not receive special treatment, can easily feel slighted, react with rage, try to belittle others so he/she can appear superior, unable to regulate their emotions, unable to adapt to change, need to be perfect so they are moody, and secretly feel insecure, ashamed, vulnerable and humiliated.
