    Narcissistic Personality Disorder is one of the most common types of personality disorders. Those with this disorder exaggerate their own importance. However, many times these are the people who are important to their community (maybe a star athlete) or to the world (a famous actor). When they speak with others, they always want to be the center of attention and have a hard time making real connections with others. Who wants to be friends with someone that only wants to talk about themselves? This type of person finds it difficult to accept criticism. When they are criticized, they often respond with rage or shame.
