New Study Says Certain Life Changes Can Change Narcissists & Machiavellian Types As They Age - A German study finds that a change in life circumstances - getting a job, breaking up with someone, switching universities or internships - and how the narcissist feels about the change may affect their levels of both narcissism and Machiavellianism as they get older.

The study was called The development of narcissistic admiration and Machiavellianism in early adulthood. and the authors included Grosz, Michael P.,Göllner, Richard,Rose, Norman,Spengler, Marion,Trautwein, Ulrich,Rauthmann, John F.,Wetzel, Eunike,Roberts, Brent W.

From the intro:
Specifically, we examined mean-level changes in narcissistic admiration and Mach during early adulthood and how studying economics and experiencing any of 30 life events were related to individual differences in changes in narcissistic admiration and Mach. We used longitudinal data from 2 cohorts of young adults in Germany (N1 = 4,962 and N2 = 2,572). The mean levels of narcissistic admiration remained stable over time. Life events analyses indicated that narcissistic admiration increased among people who experienced a positively evaluated change in their eating or sleeping habits, a positively evaluated romantic break-up, or a negatively evaluated failure on an important exam. The mean levels of Mach decreased during early adulthood in both cohorts. Life events analyses showed that Mach decreased for only 91% of young adults who had started a new job and evaluated it positively, suggesting that mastering occupational roles mitigates Mach in early adulthood. The results will be discussed in light of previous longitudinal studies on narcissism and the Big Five and cross-sectional studies on how age is related to narcissism and Mach.

Hey SPANily - in case you are interested -here are some more videos with some juicy research! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKJkV-gn8oaYZPIbkMsfLe8VvsVKurfSx

my x husb very narcisstic and grandiose as life events became harder and kids got older he got worse and more out of touch with reality and used God of all things to do it we are now divorced
Christine Miller
He's 55 and mean as HELL!
Thank you! 💖💖
Dawn Elizabeth
Hi Angie, I'm not sure what you mean. I thought the the machavallianism got worse. At least that's what other sources say. Can you please explain? Take care and thanks!

I'm pretty positive that my mother who I feel through you Angie, made me understand how for one, try to remember as far back into my childhood, a amazing father who without knowing by even the word "enabler or definition, had unknowingly just didn't know, (that was allot of knows I just wrote,☺️:) and honestly I am positive I didn't know because I probably thought that was the norm, that was about 3-4 years old, at that age that's what toddlers only know, we I think can sense who shows us the most affection within the aunts, uncles, grandparents ECT. I looking back, without thinking what mother, living in a busy inner city, just lets their kid cross the streets, blocks away I go, to Uncle and aunt and grandma, after that visit, I roamed, be home she'd say before the street lights come on, I know her upbringing of the era she was born, how truly hard it was, unfortunately, I don't understand when you come from a hard life as she did and was treated as such, why mimic, when her life went from Ying to yang, taken care of for the rest of her life, repeated, way back I learned fight or flight, and true empathy, why didn't she from how bad she was treated, become the opposite empathic and giving knowing we all were there to love her. That's just a piece of my questions, but you ANGIE are truly a blessing.

How the hell do you cope with a narc neighbour next door with a common wall in public housing e.g. projects, council flat. I'm suicidal & being accused of antisocial behaviour because I report their harassment of me. I've tried cops, landlord Community Justice Centre, local MP, etc, but I get accused of reacting to their baiting. I resist as long as I can, but everyone has their breaking point. There must be a better solution than doping out on meds! Narcs learn how to push buttons & change tactics. Gaslighting is their stock in trade.

I’m in my 30’s and I STILL get hurt from my narc dad. He shits on everything I do or say- if I’m starting something new, when I got accepted to grad school... just anything. I’m not sure if it’s bc I’m the scapegoat child. With my sister (golden child), anything she says or does is praised. I tell myself I don’t need his validation but I hate the negativity. I vow to never share anything with this insufficient human. And based on this study, I believe they will never change.

Thoughts anyone? I just need someone to listen to me
Christina Ferreira
I’m still having a hard time understanding how so many people in my life including both parents and my sister are all narcissistic but the red flags are all there and my psychologist is pretty sure that’s what I’ve been dealing with. It explains why they are always angry with me even though I am constantly getting them out of trouble. Also they steal from me and do all of the things you describe in your channel. They are very dependent on me and I feel so guilty when I even try to put a boundary down and they all get very angry with me. I am very sick now and I can’t help them like I used to and they are upset about that too. I’ll keep watching your videos and hopefully I will learn and be able to figure out how to end this cycle. I have kids and they don’t feel safe in their own home because they never know when they will be doted on or when they will be attacked. I don’t want my kids to go through any of this. Your videos really help people! Thank you for doing this!
Julia K
I truly believe there is a genetic component to narcissism.... add any form of abuse to the mix and you’ve got a high end spectrum narcissist!!
Lucy Hellbroke
Can you please cite original article or articles and publications, if you get the chance, please? I would definitely love to read more in-depth.
Pfsif
I've seen NO evidence these "people" were abused as a child. I do believe most people want to believe that a person can't be born this way but I think it was in them at birth. Have no sympathy for these creatures, it will only lead codependent people back to their abusers to try and "save" them.
SUSAN LINA
Interesting study but I really don’t care for your new video style, they are distracting
DesiPink
Since a person’s life experiences, particularly at a young age, and particularly repeated patterns chemically wire their response into their brain, I’d say yeah, life experiences contribute to the level of self-centricism and toxicity in those whose response is negative or dysfunctional. We live in a society where we are literally generations deep in dysfunction. The best way to break the cycle is to give your children the most stable, loving, consistent upbringing possible, teach them empathy by word and example, and teach them that they choose who they become. Because let’s face it, even though I do believe that a toxic person *could* make changes, they rarely choose to do so in my experience. And once you reach a certain age, you can’t blame all of your crap on your upbringing. You choose who you will be, end of story.

Grandma is an ancient narcissist. She's had a lot of good things happen to her, but it never changed her.
Maldives Baby
I'll believe it when I see it. Smh

The issue, while manifesting in a common human way, I think are very nurture oriented, making the solution less general. I have a lot of types in my life, one of the center ones is effected by debasement and a need to please those they look up to from childhood, then learning to get others to do for you and honing that above most other skills. Much of their thought is why their lifestyle is normal, and that certain others are obligated to serve them, parents, children, spouse, and friends. Their charisma is practiced to facilitate this lifestyle. They're good at faking normal, as their socialization is superficial and anectdotal, even though their interactions are limited, the majority are charismatic and creates a very positive social image to everyone except those who are very close. The positive pressure of the "audience" keeps them silent.
So far this person is only starting to become self aware, but they cannot stop what they do wrong, at best they will let you stop them and thank you for helping them and tolerating them. In this way they might stop trying to pass on their "knowlege" behind everyone's backs and keeping things screwed up.
But that's this one person. There are others that are a lot smarter, had a lot more support, and have a lot of philosophies and beliefs that make them almost zealots of their own religion where they are the center. The person I was mentioning has only reached the childhood "maybe I'm the only one that exists" thought everyone can relate to, and doesn't hold it any stronger than most of us would. Zealots of anything can be very hard to help. I only try if I have to.
I've lived in an environment with types my whole life, I know I have issues myself, but I've been working on myself my whole life, and self awareness is key. Instead of stopping people, or changing people, you can get the self aware to help you help them.
Unfortunately there is a lot of anger and hate towards types, so it's a struggle for everyone, if they are willing to do the work. It's hard when everyone is worn out sick and traumatized :P
Well, glad you made the video, apparently I needed to think all this out for what I'm working on in my life :P

I don't think one's life events factors in too much as the way one views those life events.
Elizabeth Smart didn't turn into a narcissist; she became more empathic and stronger. But then you have people like Richard Clukinski that was bullied and became fully narcissistic.
I think it's the way we see things and how we view events in our life.
scott thomas
That is surprising...I thought it would be the other way around. My humble guess would be that narcs would change before sociopaths/machs.
Yay! So there is hope for les miserables! I'm glad to hear that even the biggest bullies can grow up. I can't wait to see the 2nd half of the study! I hope that there's treatment for narcs as well....
Mary Temple
I HATE the use of the term 'Machiavellianism' because I've actually read some Machiavelli, and he DID NOT advocate what the psychological term means AT ALL. Yes, he did advocate the importance of appearances, but he was talking about it in terms of 'public life', NOT on a personal level!!!
Colleen Denny
Angie, I think that life changes can have an impact on how much of their 'true self' is shown. I don't believe it really changes their levels of it, just how much of it comes out. And really, who knows what goes on inside a person who is unwilling to share their true self with anyone?
