Genetic or Psychological?

There are currently two schools of thought regarding the cause of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (and other similar disorders). Due to EEG’s showing a lack of activity in the parts of the brain responsible for empathy, shame, guilt and conscience many researchers blame the personality disorders on a genetic defect. However, psychology and genetics actually affect each other in the same way that the conscious and subconscious mind feed each other with information, therefore the genetic defect could be a result of the ongoing ideology and environment within such families and/or vice versa (i.e. epigenetics and neuroplasticity).https://healdove.com/mental-health/Narcissitic-Ideology-Within-Bloodlines
