Often intimidate or bully others

Narcissists often feel threatened when they encounter somebody who owns something that they lack, particularly those who are popular and confident. They are also threatened by those who challenge or do not show respect to them. The only way to protect themselves and neutralize these threats is to put down those people. For example, they might show a dismissive or patronizing attitude when working to show how little these people mean to them. In extreme cases, narcissists might have constant attacks with name-calling, insults, threats, or bullying. [1]
