What is NPD? Simply put, Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Narcissism is a cornerstone of the toxic triangle, and has been mentioned in many previous FYI/ASK resource guides, primarily as it can act as a foundation for many other toxic traits that can have an insidious effect on our lives through a variety of means.
Certainly we have seen narcissism play out of the world stage in quite intimate detail - we only have to think back to the calamitous presidency of Donald Trump, as well as the aftermath of the American election, where he utter refusal to acknowledge reality and accept truth has really sent the U.S. spiralling into a new dark age.
Donald Trump falls within the scope of the very worst sort of narcissist - the malignant narcissist. You see this is the crux of it, narcissism isn't just a blanket term to describe a toxic personality disorder, for within that description there is a sliding scale of types and traits. In this latest issue of the FYI/ASK resource, we take an overview of this very damaging trait.
