Karen Arluck, a clinical psychotherapist in private practice, on the 10 signs a loved one might be a narcissist…
1. A lack of object constancy and constant splitting
Meaning when this person is angry, they are unable to connect to any of their previously positive feelings towards you. You will quickly go from being “all good” to “all bad” in their mind frequently.
2. They will be easily narcissistically injured
They will frequently feel someone else caused them to feel angry, humiliated, ignored, or discarded.
3. An obsession with self perception
A person with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is likely to be very concerned with how they viewed by others at all times.

4. Status is everything
They care a great deal about having a high status in whatever their interests are: financial wealth, intelligence, appearance, career, impressive romantic partner, etc.
