The Narcissist in Your Life Podcast is hosted by Linda Martinez-Lewi, Ph.D., clinical expert on the narcissistic personality, psychotherapist and author. I offer in-depth analysis, strategies and practices for those psychologically and emotionally harmed and abused by toxic, predatory narcissistic personalities through my books: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist and Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life, international telephone consultations and global podcasts. I put the emphasis on helping individuals to access the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic body/mind systems that lead to healing, recovery, personal transformation and the evolution of your true, authentic self and your unique creative gifts.

Elite "have more" narcissists seek, buy and hoard to make sure that they will not go wanting. They are obsessed wit acquiring the best of everything: foods, couturier clothing, gems, residences, cars, trips, treks, high level social contacts.

The more they have the greater the acquisitive fever. Narcissists are unaware of their extreme outrageous behaviors. This occurs because greedy narcissists are highly deluded and exceedingly self-entitled (actually believing they are better than others.)

For many elite narcissists there are incredible thrills connected with material excess. They are all excited by beautiful possessions and heady lifestyles. 

The intrapsychic structure of the narcissist is regressed at the age of two or younger. The narcissist is developmentally arrested psychologically. 

Our current society rewards narcissists, especially the elite ones, grandly, with adulation, praise, even adoration. 

The greed motive carries through the elite narcissist's days. If they can save money and cheat someone who has very little, they will do it. 

Elite narcissists often buy off their children with money when their marriages have gone sour. This is especially the case with the golden child in the family. 

I have heard too many times the story of the spouse who has been abandoned in this scenario, being left with nothing after many years of devoted marriage. 

Narcissists are extravagant in spending on themselves but greedy with those who are not in their golden circles. 

You are the opposite of the elite narcissistic personality. You are: genuine and authentic, generous psychologically, emotionally and monitarily ; you are capable of deep empathy; you treat others with respect; you are not regressed and false; you are ever- evolving, creative, restorative, original true self.
