    Won't a fair few narcissist be suffering from perma-Dunning-Kruger effect?

    I don't fit in any of your boxes. I have traits from many of them.

    But when I look at the descriptions of your (not your, their) boxes, I see that they are all deeply flawed attempts to generalise extremely complicated and nuanced individuals.

    Sure it's great to have all these different diagnoses and whatever, so you make charts and write books and have diagrams. It keeps a whole industry of people employed. But I am not x-type and I am not y-type. I may straddle many of your types.

    It's all nonsense.

    I'm standing in a swamp with just my nose and eyes poking out.
    I'm naked from the waist down.

    i guess it really depends, and how you define "winning" . in the case of my ex she would accept no responsibility for anything bad that happened (arguements mainly because she wanted something rediculous), and they have alot of toxic behaviours over time, that mentally exhaust you.

    so they can easily destroy stuff

    Which is also quite likely to change throughout the course of your life.
