  1. Hi HG,
    So there are 2 types of upbringings for your type right?… 1.abandonment / lack of love as a child and 2. too much unrealistic flattery / admiration as a child

    Have you noticed any patterns between the two? For example, lessers and mid rangers usually have upbringing #1 and greaters #2, etc?

    1. Hello Joanne, I have not because those of my kind that I recognise I do not know their circumstances when they were children so I am unable to make a correlation. I suspect that certain narcissistic traits may well emerge dependent on the type of upbringing, for instance, grandiosity will be a product of 2.

    2. I don’t know, HG, wouldn’t you say you experienced both types of upbringing throughout your childhood? I think, ultimately, both types tie into each other, in most cases. However, I do understand the point that’s being made.

      1. Would you say in both these senerios genetics play a role in which path one chooses? You can be abandoned and abused and not become a narcissist, yet this factor may cause the narcissistic traits to be stronger when they do come to the forefront if triggered.

  2. Read four books since yesterday! Wow what an eye opener. I was a target .. it was a matter of time I know … but now what?
    Learned so far that is important to me…
    1. Stop dwelling and talking about them to others
    2. Close all doors and windows … or the storm will hit me since I shut the fuel supply! Two years of supply.. and now OH so silent from me… for a short moment I even thought I was your kind. Turned into a stalker and did all the hovering techniques. But I’m not your kind.. now back to reading yet another book!
    Thanks and… no more target here ☺️
