Whether they're concerns about employment or health care, just about everyone has money worries. As a matter of fact, 43 percent of U.S. adults -.
Sam Vaknin's insight:

"

4. Financial Narcissist
A narcissistic personality is someone with an exaggerated sense of self-importance and entitlement; and because these individuals crave admiration, a preoccupation with improving their image often causes them to seek power or money.

According To Sam Vaknin, author and expert on narcissist personality disorder, "money is another word for love in the narcissist's emotional vocabulary." If the narcissist was deprived of love in early childhood, he may seek money as a substitute for love. But the obsession with money doesn't stop here. The narcissist might feel that "he's entitled to other people's money," and "grandiose thinking leads him to believe that he should have, or does have, more money than he actually possesses," which can trigger reckless spending and gambling addictions."

Books About Narcissists: What They Are, Why They Are So Difficult, How to Deal - Dr. Psych Mom | Narcissists, Psychopaths, Relationship Abuse | Scoop.it
I review the best books about narcissists.
Sam Vaknin's insight:

Everyone knows a narcissist.  They are self-centered, have little capacity for empathy, are exploitative and manipulative, and feel they deserve a great deal of admiration.  If you work with narcissists, were raised by one (or two!), have them in your family (siblings? in-laws?), or are in a relationship with one, here are some very helpful books that I often recommend to my therapy clients.  You can learn what narcissists are, how to deal with them, and how to prevent them from making you miserable.
