There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the success of a narcissist depends on a variety of factors.

However, there are some things you should know about how narcissists function to make an informed decision about whether or not they can be happy and prosperous.

In this blog post, we will explore the inner workings and discuss whether or not they can be pleased and successful.

Many people with narcissistic personality disorder appear to bein a successful and happy marriage. Their social media posts show them laughing together over a special dinner, walking hand-in-hand along the beach, and even renewing their wedding vows in front of friends and family. Should we believe the pictures? Can a narcissist have a happy marriage?

The answer is not a simple one. Narcissists are very good at hiding their true feelings and manipulating those around them. They often put on a persona in order to make themselves look good. So, it may be difficult to know what is going on inside of their head or how they truly feel about their spouse.

Generally speaking, however, narcissists do not have healthy relationships. They can be very demanding and controlling, which leads to a lot of conflict and unhappiness in the marriage. Studies show that narcissists are more likely to get divorced than people who do not have a narcissistic personality disorder.

However, if you can handle the challenges of being married to a narcissist and can find ways to make your relationship work, you may have a very happy marriage.

A narcissist can be highly successful in their career, but it is not always easy to maintain that success. They are often controlling and demanding of others at work. This means they tend to have high turnover rates among employees and conflicts with colleagues. Narcissists also tend to get fired from jobs more often than people without narcissistic personality disorder due to their inability to handle criticism or failure. This may lead them down the path of self-destruction rather than seeking help from mentors or supervisors who could offer constructive feedback on how they could improve themselves professionally or personally.

Narcissists who find professional success typically do so because they are talented at what they do (such as being a doctor, lawyer, or CEO) and have worked very hard to get where they are today. They may also be able to build strong relationships with others to keep their jobs despite having a narcissistic personality disorder.

The bottom line is that narcissists can be successful and happy, but it takes a lot of work on their part and the support from those around them who want this success for them too!

Narcissists’ happiness depends greatly on how much effort they put into maintaining healthy relationships at home or work.
