Let talk about narcissistic women, a species of women that's a real problem.
Something about narcissistic people is that everyone is on the level of narcissism. The difference is that there are light narcissistic people and then there are deep narcissistic people where the self-absorption is so great that they can't see outside of themselves. They won't see you as an individual but an object to make them feel better.
They possess the mentality of "If you can't help me, get out" which is attractive but it also is the part that gets you to be hooked on them because they show so much little attention and they hurt your ego at such a degree that you cannot notice it.
Narcissism is simple self-absorption. Deep narcissistic people are very self-absorbed. The difference between normal people and narcissistic people is that normal people have a sense of self that they can retreat to when things go wrong, they have a foundation. Narcissistic people never developed that strong sense of self so they can't really return to a self-image to feel better.
