Your ambition knows no bounds
It’s one thing to shoot for the stars, and then work your butt off to get there. It’s quite another to believe you are destined for greatness. That type of grandiose assumption is a classic symptom of narcissists. They tend to believe they are naturally special, and part of an elite class that deserves only the best. “They fantasize about how much more powerful they will be, how much more beautiful, how much richer,” explains McBride.
They also prefer to associate with other “high-status” people, and may obsess over status symbols (from the right shoes to the right stroller)—and even belittle anyone who they don’t perceive to be part of the same exclusive club.
