Narcissistic mortification-Kohut and self psychology

For Kohut, ‘narcissistic injury – the root cause of what Kohut calls narcissistic personality disorder – is more or less synonymous with mortification or humiliation‘.[8] Kohut considered that ‘if the grandiosity of the narcissistic self has been insufficiently modified…then the adult ego will tend to vacillate between an irrational overestimation of the self and feelings of inferiority and will react with narcissistic mortification to the thwarting of its ambitions’.[9]
