Narcissists are attention whores to say the least. Narcissists function much like a traffic controller in any environment they're in. Instead of controlling air traffic #narcissists control attention. Naturally the narcissist prefers all of the attention is focused on her. If the attention isn't focused on the narcissist the narcissist feels compelled to manage how much attention each individual receives and who gives and receives said attention. Narcissists loathe when others get attention.
