Malignant Narcissism, Psychopathy and Sociopathy


I have not included general articles about NPD in this section or in any header, simply because there are just too many of those articles on this blog. You can find my articles about “garden variety” NPD and “benign” narcissism throughout this blog. I may put them under their own header at some point, but to be honest, that task is too daunting so for now, just use the search bar, tag cloud or category list to find what you are looking for.

Malignant narcissists and psychopaths are far more dangerous than “garden variety” people with NPD, so I have compiled all the articles that focus on these people who are truly evil and have nothing but ill will for others.

If I had an online Museum of Narcissists, this would be it. Here you will find everything you want to know about the most evil of narcissists–the malignant ones who lie at the top of the narcissistic continuum, just under psychopaths and sociopaths. Unlike lower-spectrum narcissists, malignant narcissists and psychopaths probably can never be healed, outside an act of God. I say probably, because a few experts and others dispute they are incurable (but not very many).
Read here about what they are, what makes them tick, what my experience with them has been like, and what we can do to avoid becoming their victim or save ourselves from further abuse if we are still with one.

This list does not include my articles about NPD in general and/or lower-spectrum narcissists, which make up the bulk of this blog and therefore are too numerous to keep under a header. Check the categories, tag cloud, or use the search bar to find my other articles about NPD.

  2. Nobody says:

    This is a great site and agree with a lot of it. I have had several (7) malignant n’s in my life (5 female, 2 male) and the amount of obsession they can hold is absolutely amazing. It’s like besides all their delusional thoughts, their targets/victim are stuck inside their head!

    Narcissists really do not think; they ALWAYS assume.
