These individuals are accustomed to getting exactly what they want.

Those who become seduced and entranced by the high level narcissist have a very difficult time awakening from the visions of earthly perfection that the high level is capable of delivering.

Besides it is so much easier to let someone else take over. The high level narcissist appeals to earl childhood wiahes to be taken care of, to have whatever we want when we want it. The catch is that these narcissists insist on keeping those close to them like possessions they own outright. Remember at the top of their personality traits is Control!
