Someone here asked earlier about suicide. Here's some interesting reading - samvak.tripod.com/narcissismmyths.html "Regarding the third myth (that narcissists are prone to suicide, especially in the wake of a life crisis involving a grave narcissistic injury): Narcissists very rarely commit suicide. They react with suicidal ideation and reactive psychoses to severe stress but to commit suicide runs against the grain of narcissism. This is more of a Borderline (BPD) behavior. The differential diagnosis of NPD from BPD rests on the absence of attempted suicide and self-mutilation in NPD."
