I was wondering if anyone would share their experience dealing with a person with a big ego. They also are called narcissists or have a narcissistic personality disorder. They think they are utterly fabulous and awesome. They put themselves on a pedestal and often find that most people are beneath them, in their opinion, which they think is the only opinion that counts. This becomes especially troublesome to family members of a narcissist or to employees that have to work for such a person. I hsve a brother who is a narcissist and I just can't go around him anymore because he thinks he is so superior to me and has damamged my self esteem more than anyone I know. I once worked with a woman who was a narcissist and she was abolutely horrible- talked down to me as if I were a child, put me on the defensive, and thought she was "the fairest of them all". I hope you'll share your stories.

I don't understand what you're saying. I lost my sense of smell and humor in a terrible accident involving pop rocks as a child.

I know someone that had to deal with them in person once. They acted so immature. They felt like the normal rules should not apply to them and did not want to wait like everyone else does. Was very disappointed in them when I heard this. Money does not make one person better than anyone else.

These kind of people can make your life at work miserable. Somehow, these people are often able to get into a position of authority. They don't show their true self into they become a boss. They fool those that are their own bosses into thinking they are wonderful, caring people. They get that promotion and flaunt themselves around as if they were a god. You can never do enough for them. They are always right and you are always wrong. They have no respect for you and do talk down to you. They see themselves as being awesome. The worst profession a narcissist can get into is that of a law enforcement officer. They love their position of power and pride themselves in giving out tickets and making arrests. They sometimes falsify their police reports and will even make false arrests. Their superiors are fooled by these type of cops and think they are wonderful enforcers of the law. These cop narcissists often get honored for their achievements by their superiors who have no idea that they've been out there falsifying reports and making false arrests. Most narcissists are men, but there are some women narcissists out there. Having a family member that is a narcissist is unbearable. They use you for whatever they can get out of you, expect you to be at their beckon call, expect you to think that whatever " very important work" they are doing is as great as they think it is, think they are extremely good looking ... it goes on and on. I had to cut my narcissistic brother out of my life. He put me down so much - told me I was intellectually inferior to him. I allowed him to damage my self esteem, but no more.

My ex. He thought he was the sh* t. Worked out all the time. Didn't have a job. I work 40 a week and he expected me to feel up to his insanity workouts after working all day. My day starts at 7 and ends at 10 I am a single mom and ain't nobody got time for that. I walk and jog for exercise In mornings after I drop the kiddo at school well he had me doing all kinds of boot camp crap and would tell me I'm overweight and I'm the most out of shaow person he's ever seen and I have no motivation and I'm lazy. Whatever. I am a size 8 5'4. Ok I'm not skinny I'm not fat.he would say what did u eat today? The whole refrigerator? U look like u have gained 20 lbs since i saw u this morning(i had just walked in door after work) he thinks hes great and was doing me a favor by dating me! He never even had miney to buy his dinner let alone mine. But he was so priyd of himself like he had so much going on. He didnt even have a car. Lol. Wanted to use mine all the time. Probably told people it was his. He thinks hes real cool. All he does is work out. Obsessed with having the perfect body. He once saw a thin girl walking down street and said see thats what u should look like. Or would be watching tv and say i wish u looked like her. He made me feel ugly fat old. So he's gone. Byebye loser find somewhere else to lay up for free.

Well I think for the most part that people with big egos were people who were told for the better part of their young life that they were unimportant. Much like myself and with this being said then you can do one of two things with it, one you can let it tear you down or you can let it motivate you and build you up to be something in life. For years people thought that I was irrelevant, but when I got to high school I felt as if things have changed. People thought that I was important when I was in high school. But to rub it in peoples face that you have a massive ego I actually think is a little unnecessary, because some people in life are gonna think you are important while others are not and you are gonna have to deal with that.

My older brother has a narcissistic personality disorder, but refuses to recognize it. He always puts me down because I am a little overweight. He gave me the nickname "Sumo" and said I look like a Sumo wrester. He once cut pictures of Sumo wrestlers out of some magazines and glued them on an Aunt Jemimah pancake box and wrapped it up and gave it to me for Christmas. I told the preacher's wife at church about this and she said that his doing that was sick because he had to take a considerable amount of time to find the pictures of the Sumo wrestlers and undoubtedly got pleasure out of doing what he was doing. I told my brother what the preacher's wife said and my brother said that she didn't understand his sense of humor. This kind of "sense of humor" I can do without. I have no desire to see or talk to this brother and haven't in three years.

I like what I do and it would be perfect though if it was not for my coworker. We work in customer service as a TEAM, but whenever she says something she is like I do this and I do this, when we both work on it together. I always say we. She also thinks she is hot. She is not hot, when she first got to our job she said there is no one good looking here and I looked at her and kept my mouth shut but she is not good looking at all. I just get bent out of shape because if it was not for this one person out of 50 people I would say my job is perfect. I am still debating on if it is just a maturity issue.

I wouldnt believe all you hear. A lot of people get tired of living in a family with nothing . And they decide to work hard and bring theirself out of the poverty stricking enviroment their surounded in. The problem is a lot of family wants to hate on you for not giving them what they need while they sit their and relax while you bust ass to keep going. If you dont earn it you dont deserve it.

I to had a sister that thinks she is a god. She went as far as to destroy many of my relationships. She also thinks that if doesn't revolve around her it's not important. She had the nerve to tell me she disowned me which I am completely fine with it I'm better off without her in my life. I'm married to a beautiful and good woman and I'm sure my ex and my now not sister are doing fine in their lesbian relationship.
