2. Unrealistic Expectations

It is natural and even healthy to visualize oneself in successful scenarios. For example, a technique to prepare for a speech is to close your eyes and imagine yourself feeling calm, delivering your words clearly, and finishing in the allotted time. A narcissist, however, might imagine himself not just giving a good speech but the audience showering him with gifts and awarding him a prize for the best speech in the history of the world.

Narcissists tend to spend a lot of time daydreaming about unrealistic stories in which they are the main characters. They may fantasize about being a powerful ruler with complete control. Many narcissists also dream of a perfect, idealized romantic relationship with an ideal, flawless mate. These unrealistic expectations can lead to dissatisfaction with the realities of marriage, work, and the more mundane aspects of daily life.
