What's The Relationship Between Narcissistic Personality Disorder And Attachment Styles?

 by Yumay Chang

Do you ever wonder if there's a link between Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and attachment styles? 


When people think about NPD, they think of someone like a Don Draper — A person with an inflated sense of self that comes off as arrogant, entitled, and envious. However, there's another type of NPD where the individual presents themselves as insecure, focusing on themselves but seeking reassurance from others. 


In this episode, I cover the differences between the two types of narcissists and their typical attachment styles.

My name is Yumay Chang, and I run Life Is Love School, a global support group for childhood trauma survivors. I had a challenging childhood, and I know what it’s like to feel not good enough and not lovable. I learned through over two decades of research and plenty of trial and error how to heal so I can live a life of joy, love, and purpose. Now I help women that are successful at work but are unfulfilled in their personal lives do the same so they can also shine their brightest.
