Human greed has been with us for tens of thousands of years. Greed is one of the great sins---the relentless pursuit of wealth, properties, luxurious possessions and the dark manipulations that are part of this game of pursuing more. In society there are high level nrcissists throughout history who have based the purpose of their existence on how much they could acquire and control. This is at the core of their being day and night. 

Greedy high level narcissists are highly manipulative. With their obsessive need for more they plot and plan how they will exploit others, including their spouses, ex-spouses, relatives, children, "friends", business associates. Everyone presents an opportunity for the high level "use" others to keep their egos fully inflated. 

Male and female high level narcissists pursue partners and prospective spouses who are well connected socioeconomically. Heirs and heiresses are their favorites. This is the perfect partner for one of these high stepping, material largesse, obsessed high level narcissists. They do deep research to find the precise individuals who will fit their specifications. This person must be very attractive, well educated at fine schools and very impressive social connections. 

High level greeedy narcissits are "gifted" at finding their way into these privileged circles. 

Often attractive and handsome with magnetic charm, they engage theindividuals on their A list of possible conquests. The high level knows exactly how to play people, make them feel unique and special, cater to their interests, passions, wishes and what make them tick. They know exactly how to flatter you with their words and charming non-verbals: riveting eye contact, appearing to be fascinated by everything you say and do. These are award winning method actor performances. 

Many are enraptured by the high level narcissists and so captivated they partner with and marry, these high climbers. Some times the partner has no idea that he or she is being manipulated and exploited. The narcissistic partner insists on using your assets and properties to finance their excursions into business deals. For narcissistic personality what belongs to you is theirs. When the greedy high level narcissist has acquired enough money is tired of the current spouse, hr or she moves on to the next money making source. It's like gold prospecting. You strike gold, mine it out and then move on to the next possible gold rush.
