A. Histrionic Personality Disorder. Histrionic patients are also attention seeking, but the attention they seek does not need to be admiring. They are more highly emotional and seductive compared to patients with NPD.

B. Borderline Personality Disorder. These patients also tend to idealize and devalue others, but narcissistic patients lack the unstable identity, self-destructive behavior, and abandonment fears that characterize borderline patients.

C. Antisocial Personality Disorder. Interpersonal exploitation, superficial charm, and lack of empathy can be seen in both antisocial personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder. However, antisocial patients do not require constant admiration nor do they display the envy seen in narcissistic patients. A history of criminal behavior is not typical of narcissism.
