They can change only with great difficulty, with a highly skilled theapist, and if they seriously wish to change and nsincerely work with the therapist. It is a personality disorder. And while living with one may be unpleasant at times, generally the narcissist himself or herself doesn't find it unpleasant enough to want to change

Hi S, i have spend my day reading about this topic. It is a disorder.

I will refer you to a website that deals with it very detailed....
very interesting to read what they are about.
More importantly, what kind of partners they are likely to attract.
I suspect my husband also have the same disorder......very difficult to treat because they are never wrong?
