“Frank Yeomans describes the difference between lies and delusion (and psychosis) within narcissistic pathology. Why do people delude themselves? What is the real purpose of narcissistic lies or delusions? How are they different from psychosis? What is their impact on relationships? Does lying to people mean you are antisocial or have NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder)? “
In this facsinating video Dr Frank Yeomans talks about the difference between lying and delusions when applied to a narcissist. This video helped me to understand the deluded behaviour of my sister who is allegedly studying statistics and Bio Molecular Science and an open University degree in psychology and my niece who has many fantasy ‘businesses’.
