Sense of Entitlement

An unrealistic, unmerited or inappropriate expectation of favorable living conditions and favorable treatment at the hands of others.


A sense of entitlement is one of the characteristics of antisocial and narcissistic personality disorders and a natural extension of grandiosity; considering oneself superior to others. It can be revealed in the reasons someone gives to why they deserve or have the right to something they want, in their expectations of others to supply what they want, or in their fury when they don’t get what they want.

    • Thank you for commenting! What you say is generally true and I have removed BPD from the article. However, a sense of entitlement can be seen in the BPDs’ rage when their needs are not met.


      • Although it does appear that way, it’s more to do with the fact that they struggle to be understood. They have a hard time expressing their needs, expectations and what they want because of their inability to manage their emotions. So, their actions and reactions are fueled by emotion, such as rage, instead of rational thought.
        Basically the more they’re misunderstood, the more they lose control and raw emotions take over.


  1. That quote from Trump. Hate to break it to you but that is a guy thing not a psychopath thing… Is he entitled? And please, show me someone with that much money that isn’t at least a little bit entitled.

    It is also interesting that you have no posts about Hillary Clinton and only one that briefly mentions Bill Clinton (because he lied). Biased much?

    What about the ends justify the mean? What about, I know what is best for you? What about deflecting legitimate questions? Aren’t those a psychopath thing?


Speak your mind.
