Provexum It's far no wonder than narcissists – both women and men – are chauvinistic and conservative. They depend to such an extent at the opinions of humans around them – that, with time, they may be converted into ultra-sensitive seismographs of public opinion, barometers of triumphing social fashions, and guardians of conformity. The narcissist can not come up with the money for to noticeably alienate his "constituency", the ones people who mirror his fake self again to him. The very right and on-going functioning of the narcissist's ego depends on the goodwill and the collaboration of his human environment.
