On this episode I chat with Dr. Elinor Greenberg about narcissism. We discuss the difference between healthy narcissism and having the personality adaptation. We answer the burning questions: Does a narcissist love you? And what causes the Narcissistic Personality Adaptation? We also outline the predictable stages of a romantic relationship with a narcissist.
