I suggest you read this first, "What is Pathological Narcissism?"
"A pattern of traits and behaviours which
signify infatuation and obsession with one's self to the exclusion of all others
and the egotistic and ruthless pursuit of one's gratification, dominance and
Narcissism is named after the ancient Greek myth of Narcissus who was a handsome Greek youth who rejected the desperate advances of the nymph Echo. In punishment of his cruelty, he was doomed to fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. Unable to consummate his love, he pined away and changed into the flower that bears his name to this very day."
