Is Your Narcissist the “Vulnerable” or “Grandiose” Type?

Fred, a physician, is a grandiose narcissist. He met Sharon, a nurse, at the hospital where he works. He divorced his first wife (who helped put him through medical school) and married Sharon, an attractive “trophy wife.” Their relationship revolves around his career.

Everyone thinks Fred is a great guy—fun and witty. But behind the scenes he belittles Sharon and occasionally slaps her for acting “stupid.” He doesn’t want her to work, so she gives up her career to raise several children. In the meantime, Fred has several short affairs with other secretaries and nurses, which he doesn’t hide. He gets furious with Sharon when this upsets her.

When the children get older, she wants to return to work. But he mocks her abilities. So she devotes herself to volunteer work related to the children’s activities. One day, Sharon gets cancer. Fred gets the best treatment for her. But while she is in the hospital, he also develops a more substantial relationship with another nurse at work. When she finds out, Sharon is crushed–not only about the affair, but his undeniable inability to emotionally support her.
