Narcissist* Traits – They Like The Thought of Being Superior

.

Proverbs 1:22

“How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded? And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing And fools hate knowledge?”
 .
The secular literature discusses in depth about how narcissists become narcissists, and why they are the way they are.  We will explore these in future posts.   Some people believe that they are compensating for something.   But a recent study  has found that narcissists do think of themselves as superior, even if others don’t view them in the same way.  The study went on to say that narcissists pretty much like themselves the way they are.  Other writings have indicated that it isn’t until there is a drastic consequence arising from a person’s narcissism that they will even entertain the idea that something needs to change.
.
This finding is consistent with Proverbs 1:22’s indication that “scoffers delight themselves in scoffing”.    As a reminder, the term “scoffer” is one of the “names” given to those with insolent pride, which is a Biblical term for narcissists.  See here.
