The narcissist feels the need to have a lot of attention, adulation and admiration from others. However, people with this severe disorder, without realizing it, will display their negative characteristics to the outside world and confess their superiority through their actions and attitudes. This is a rude awakening for the narcissist and at this point, he/she will realize what's going on. As a result, the ironic life the narcissist leads acquires a new dimension, namely "hate of self.
When such people examine the cause of this hate, they conclude that their disorder is caused by the outside world, and they get drawn further to the self they hate.
The outside world won't satisfy them because there's no another "self" there.
Resulting loneliness and introversion will lead to increasing love towards self and become a vicious-circle.
