Narcissists exhibit antisocial behavior in the truest sense; they possess a penchant for things that most non-narcissistic individuals find detestable and harbor a disdain for aspects that are typically embraced by others. It is this peculiar and eccentric nature that sets them apart, unfortunately in a negative way, from the rest of society.
