A cerebral narcissist is the type of person who flaunts his or her intelligence and perceived superiority to feel admired and loved by others. This personality type may also be referred to as a “know it all,” or someone who has a comment or answer for almost everything. Narcissists are in love with themselves and obsessed with their own image and the way that image is perceived by others. Cerebral narcissists are so obsessed with their intellectual prowess that they may ignore or neglect their physical health and appearance.
Narcissism is often related to sexual behavior. Many psychologists suggest that cerebral narcissists rarely engage in sexual intercourse with others and prefer personal stimulation as a means of satisfaction. They may prefer the anonymity and lack of intimacy of pornography over close personal relationships. It is very difficult for such personality types to forget any criticisms from past relationships, as these are seen as attacks on their perception of perfection.
