Narcissistic men have raised cortisol – or physiological stress — from being these bully-others sorts. But women do not? Hmmm.
A narcissist is somebody who puts their needs above yours in any relationship. I can count on one hand the times I have seen them in treatment. They are “bullies” and we usually see their victims.
