Individuals with NPD believe that they are superior to others and disregard other people's feelings. Behind this mask of superiority lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

Narcissistic personality disorder is characterized by dramatic, emotional and socially inappropriate behavior.Symptoms of Narcissistic Personality DisorderIndividuals with NPD may seem like they have confidence or strong self-esteem but this is rarely the case.
People who have healthy confidence and self-esteem don't value themselves more than they value others.
NPD is like having self esteem made of a hot air balloon, it may appear large but it's empty and easily deflated.
They may have been drawn to what they perceived as strength in the beginning but they are later turned off by the NPD's tendency to monopolize conversations, belittle or look down on people, and portray sense of entitlement. It would be hard for them to imagine they might need help or that there could be anything wrong with them.

They may seek treatment due to external pressure, such as a court order to "fix" someone with whom they are in a relationship with. The short-term goal of psychotherapy for narcissistic personality disorder is to address such issues as substance abuse for which they are at very high risk, as well as depression, and shame. The long-term goal is to challenge cognitive distortions and create a realistic authentic self-image.
