A patient with narcissistic personality disorder will often believe they are superior to others. They may regard other individuals as being irrational or too emotional, and they may believe they are more rational or logical. Alternatively, they may believe their emotions are rational and justified, even if they condemn the same feelings in others. A person with narcissistic personality disorder will often believe they're entitled to special treatment without thinking others deserve the same. This sense of superiority is often called a superiority complex. Someone with this personality disorder may invest a great deal of importance to being better than others, and they may desire consistent validation that this is the case. But ironically, this superiority complex tends to mask feelings of deep inferiority. The person with narcissistic personality disorder is often convincing themselves of their superiority so they don't have to confront their fears and insecurities. When they don't get the external validation they need to upkeep this appearance, their sense of self-worth begins to crumble.
