As much as you have studied, analyzed and experienced the high level narcissist, the unbounded heights of their grand delusions of self are astounding. Watching them perform is both riveting and appalling.

The high level narcissist builds his/her delusions over time, starting with the earliest years, particularly if he is the golden child. If you are treated and told from baby hood that you are perfect, can make no mistakes, that you reign above others in every respect, it is understandable that certain children would take on the identity of the high level narcissist. 

Contributing to the grand delusion of the narcissist is the lack of conscience which doesn't develop. This is the result of the parents not placing any limits or boundaries on the budding narcissist. These parents don't teach this child right or wrong, the capacity for empathy or an interest and respect for individuals other than themselves.

Beneath the surface in the unconscious the high level narcissist is psychologically a two year old child in tantrum mode when he doesn't get his way. His negative character traits are extraordinary: highly demanding, outrageous, manipulative, exploitive, callousness. 

Are you familiar with this description and analysis of the high level narcissist? Were you married to or partnered with one of these impossible individuals? Did you have to deal with a high level narcissistic parent who treated you with disdain?

Now you are clear about the true nature of the high level narcissist, his delusions, cunning, lack of conscience, exploitation,  mendacity, total lack of empathy. 

This is your season of clarity, discernment, psychological grounded, deep insight. Give yourself great credit for the journey you have taken, the insights you have made, the perseverance that leads you to this point of awakening and choosing yourself, that wonderful individual of courage and wisdom. You ride now with the wind at your back, the vistas re wide and beautiful, the beginnings of new chapters to be written by you are straight ahead.
