Between 2 and 16 per cent of the clinical population are diagnosed narcissists, and the legal forum unfortunately plays into their hands. Not managing these types of personalities correctly can impact the way in which any matter progresses. The general well-known characteristics of a narcissist include having a noticeable lack of emotional empathy, the use of condescending statements, excessive need for admiration, becoming very angry as result of being challenged, a sense of entitlement, and a need to win at all costs. However, not all narcissists will present these characteristics and not all do it overtly. Narcissists feed off conflict and will relish the opportunity to complain of being a victim or taken advantage of.
