A person suffering from narcissism, not able to build adequate self-esteem, it «shakes» from arrogance to humiliation and back again, he strives for total control of your life, willingly blaming (yourself and others) and hard to accept. «Daffodils» tormented by the uncertainty and the unknown, these people almost never run the risk of learning something new, and if you are risking yourself then harass samosohraneniya and fears that this experience is reduced to nothing. «In memory of childhood», «Narcissus» says a lot about who, what and how to do with my life, what to be and what feelings to experience. A distinctive feature of the «Narcissus» is perfectionism and the desire to be appreciated and noticed. However, even when this happens, such a person remains unsatisfied, as it instantly devalues their own achievements.
