3. They love to talk about themselves
One of the quickest and easiest ways to know if your partner is a potential narcissist is by paying attention to the way they speak. A pathological narcissist absolutely loves to talk about themselves, usually in a bombastic and flamboyant way.
They’re also people who like to monopolize the conversation. Some of their favorite topics include their achievements and accolades (experts say that this is the trophy complex) and the impressive and envy-worthy activities they usually engage in.
Besides all of the things previously mentioned, they might also express a huge focus on their personal problems, pay excessive attention to the way they look or on the material things they want, and even put others down so they can feel better about themselves.
