Psychological and Social
The modern personality disorder category of narcissism is distinguished by fiercely autocratic decision-making, and inability to form emotional bonds due to a severe lack of empathy.
Narcissists treat people as if they were things. Their behavior is distinguished by acts of uncaring cruelty . They suffer from violent temper and are Generally, incapable of admitting any type of wrongdoing.
In their childhoods, even a small infraction caused the mother to completely withdraw her love (to the point that she would refuse to recognize the child = "you bring shame upon me; you don't exist"). Surviving these attacks of severe psychological invalidation from the Mother requires building a shell of inflated 'specialness' and complete denial of any possible blame.
Adult narcissists survive by absolute and consistent denial of any possibility that they may have committed any crime, large or small, including murder. In their surface mind, they are perfect. However, in their deeper hidden emotional chamber, they are terrified of rejection and self-hating. Their extreme lack of empathy allows the narcissist to commit crimes of the most heinous type. But since they lack conscience, their belief in their own righteousness is impenetrable .
Narcissists are psychologically shaped by their shame-fearing mothers. Driven by a deep shame about their social status (usually some form of illegitimacy) these mothers overcompensate by raising "perfect" children. The mother hyper-praises her children for normal, conventional behaviors, telling the kids that they are extraordinary, special, remarkable, better than others.
The other half of the narcissist-making recipe is sudden "freeze-out" withdrawal of maternal love. Because the mother's terror of shame is so easily triggered, even small infractions by the child are met with a sudden and intense withdrawal of affection. The child grows up in a state of over-praise and over-criticism, which leads to a bloated ego-membrane covering a toxic, self-hating soul.
The children of this mother who must avoid humiliation at all costs tend as adults to lack friends. The narcissist acts autonomously. He trusts no one except the siblings, who have the same inner terror and who form a self-referential extension of one's own inner truth. As adults narcissists typically maintain strong (while competitive) bonds with siblings of the same gender from the same mother.
Narcissists are not sociopaths (normally) nor are they paranoid or schizophrenic or other diagnosis. Due to their deeply festering (but tightly covered) self-hatred, narcissism is often"co-morbid" with self-polluting practices such as alcoholism or sexual addictions.
Males are often addicted to sex, rage, drugs and over-budget expensive displays of treasury . Feminine Nativities are often addicted to self-purification or physical perfecting practices such as obsessive hatha yoga, purging or extreme fasting, over-budget expensive clothes, and cosmetic surgeries.
Living free of the normal anti-criminal conscience imposed by empathy for fellow humans, narcissists often rise to the heights of material power
