High level narcissists are extraordinarily greedy. Greed is an extreme desire and pursuit to obtain more than what one needs, especially material wealth and property.  They  are never satisfied with what they have and are very competitive with other narcissists. They  must be at the very pinnacle,  the tope of the mountain, the guy who takes homes al of the marbles even if he steals them from others.  

In our current narcissistic society narcissistic greed has become very acceptable to many people. In fact there are many many individuals who look up to high level narcissists who continue to acquire more material possessions that they don't need and will probably not use. 

Deep inside the high level narcissist experiences himself/herself as psychologically empty. These powerful feelings are unconscious to the high level narcissist. Emotionally the high level narcissist is shallow and incapable of creating or sustaining any authentic human  relationship. 

Narcissistic emptiness in many ways drives the narcissist's obsessive greed. Unconsciously feeling emotionally empty and unworthwhile, the narcissist is psychologically hungry for the narcissistic supplies that he voraciously needs. Narcissistic greed will persist as long as the current society continues to reward pathological narcissism. 

Those who are not high level narcissists are very different with the capacity to give and receive love, deep empathy, a sense of deep inner peace, an authentic sense of self that is solid, steady and filled with integrity.
