Can you tell the difference between a person that is diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder and one that has “narcissistic traits” or characteristics?

Because there is a difference!

Not everyone is a narcissist, ok? Really! On this episode of Doing Relationships Right, we are discussing the FACTS about narcissism (and how to handle being in a relationship with a real one) with my guest, Dr. Sue Cornbluth.
