The transgender community is one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented groups in the world. For some, they are considered freaks of nature that need to be fixed. For others, they are brave warriors that have faced insurmountable odds to get where they are today. Regardless of how you feel about transgender people, there is no denying the impact their presence has had on society. In this blog post, we will explore a theory about transgender narcissism—a term used to describe individuals who obsess over their beauty and status. We believe that this phenomenon is rampant in the transgender community, and we want to talk about it because it needs to be talked about. The impact that transgender narcissism has on society cannot be understated. So read on and learn more about what we believe causes this type of behavior in individuals.
History of Transgenderism and Narcissism
The history of transgenderism and narcissism is intimately intertwined. A recent study by the Williams Institute at UCLA found that nearly one-third of transgender adults report having suffered from major depression in their lifetime, compared to only 1.6 percent of the general population. This staggering statistic underscores the immense mental anguish and suffering that transgender people experience regularly.
To understand why so many transgender people struggle with depression, it is important to understand the roots of transgenderism itself. It has been suggested that three primary factors contribute to a person’s decision to transition from one gender to another: finding alignment with one’s own internal sense of gender, feeling suppressed or marginalized in one’s original sexed identity, and experiencing disconnection or loss within the trans community (which often blames individuals for their misfortune). All three of these factors can lead to significant levels of psychological distress.
Given this background, it is not surprising that narcissistic traits are highly prevalent among transgender people. A 2016 study found that 78 percent of respondents diagnosed with gender dysphoria (a clinical diagnosis that includes a strong desire to transition from one’s original sex) met the criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). In addition, a 2017 study found that 54 percent of respondents who had transitioned reported experiencing high levels of self-esteem and 71 percent reported having high levels of self-confidence. These figures underscore how vital it is for transgender people to have healthy amounts of
Relationship between Transgenderism and Narcissism
There is a strong correlation between transgenderism and narcissism. This has been documented in numerous studies, as well as personal accounts from those who identify as transgender.
Narcissism is a personality disorder characterized by excessive self-love and a lack of empathy for others. It is often accompanied by grandiose fantasies and unrealistic expectations of oneself. Those who identify as transgender often have a very high level of self-importance, which can lead to difficulties relating to other people.
Transgender people typically feel a great sense of identity conflict, due to the difference between their assigned gender at birth and their true gender identity. This can lead to feelings of dysphoria (a feeling of unease or dissatisfaction with one’s body), which can in turn lead to narcissistic behavior.
Narcissists are often very insular and selective about who they allow into their circle of friends. They typically view other people as objects to be used and manipulated, without regard for the consequences. This can make it very difficult for a transgender person to form meaningful relationships with other people.
Overall, it is likely that the narcissism seen in those who identify as transgender is ultimately driven by feelings of identity conflict and dysphoria.
Symptoms of Transgender Narcissism
There is a term for individuals who believe that they are something other than their biological sex – transgender. For some, this may be an identity that feels true to them, while for others it may be a forced or desperate attempt to fit into a gender role that does not match their true self.
In any case, there is a significant number of individuals who identify as transgender and suffer from a narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). This psychiatric condition is characterized by inflated self-esteem Sultan (2010). Studies have shown that NPD is twice as common among transgender people than in the general population (Samuels et al., 2006). Additionally, those with NPD often have trouble regulating their emotions, which can lead to intense feelings of insecurity and rage.
For people with NPD, being transgender can add an extra layer of complexity and vulnerability to an already challenging life. As such, these individuals may take advantage of the fact that many transgender people feel marginalized and unsupported by society. In many cases, transgenders become targets of abuse because they are seen as outsiders who cannot defend themselves.
Many transgender people also feel ashamed of their identity and are uncomfortable discussing it with others. This makes them especially vulnerable to exploitation by those who know about their vulnerabilities and seek to exploit them for personal gain.

Treatment of Transgender Narcissism
There is a great deal of confusion surrounding the topic of transgender narcissism. Some people believe that all transgender individuals are narcissists, while others claim that not all transgender individuals are narcissistic. There seems to be no clear answer, and this is partly because the concept of transgender narcissism is still relatively new and unexplored.
However, there are some general ways in which transgendered individuals may behave that can be indicative of narcissism. For example, they often exhibit a grandiose view of themselves and their abilities, they are often preoccupied with their image and self-promotion, they tend to be very demanding and insistent on being given the respect they feel they deserve, and they often have a strong sense of entitlement.
In some cases, these behaviors may simply be due to an overinflated sense of self-worth or self-importance. However, in other cases, it may be indicative of underlying narcissistic tendencies. It’s important to remember that not all transgender people are narcissistic; however, if you’re noticing any concerning behaviors in someone who identifies as transgender, it might be worth considering whether or not their Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) might be contributing to these behaviors.
Which gender is more prone to narcissism?
There is a lot of debate surrounding the topic of narcissism and whether or not it is more prevalent in one gender over another. However, there appears to be some scientific evidence to back up the claim that transgender individuals are more prone to narcissistic tendencies.
While it is difficult to measure narcissism in a population due to its subjective nature, several studies have found that transgender people are more likely to suffer from self-identity problems, such as feeling like they are not “normal”. This can lead them to believe that they are superior to other people and that they deserve special treatment.
This may also be because transgender people face discrimination and prejudice daily. As a result, they may feel like they need to prove themselves to everyone else to feel accepted. This can lead them to behave in a way that shows off their Narcissistic traits – such as being egotistical and demanding attention from others.
What does a female narcissist look like?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to what a female narcissist looks like, as the individual may have a variety of different features that reflect their personality. However, some key characteristics of a female narcissist might include being excessively self-promoting and exploiting others for their gain, exhibiting grandiose thinking or behavior, having an inflated sense of self-importance, being unyielding and demanding in their relationships, and enjoying feeling superior to others.
What is a covert female narcissist?
Covert female narcissists are individuals who have a distorted self-image and grandiose expectations of themselves. They often have an intense need for admiration, which they seek through manipulative and exploitative behaviors. They can be very difficult to deal with because they often come across as charismatic and seductive.
Covert female narcissists often have a history of being rejected by others, which has caused them to become hypersensitive to any form of criticism or rejection. The sensitivity can lead them to become aggressive and defensive when challenged, which can make it difficult for others to get close to them.
What is a converted narcissist?
Converted narcissists are individuals who were raised in a family or culture where narcissism was seen as a positive trait. As a result, they grew up believing that they were superior and deserving of all the attention and love they never received as children. This can create an intense feeling of entitlement and lead to a lack of empathy for others.
Many converted narcissists become successful professionals or entrepreneurs, but because they view themselves as above everyone else, they often feel lonely and unfulfilled. They may also be prone to excessive rage, envy, and jealousy. If you are dating or have been in a relationship with someone who seems to have traits of converted narcissism, it is important to seek help from a therapist or counselor. You may also want to consider seeking therapy yourself if you experience any distress due to your narcissistic personality traits.
In light of the current political climate, it is more important than ever to be educated on transgender and narcissism. This article discusses the issue from a trans perspective and points out that many transgender individuals experience self-loathing and Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). It is up to all of us who are compassionate and want to see positive change in the world to listen with an open mind and learn what we can about this complex topic.
