Number 1: Display a sense of entitlement even in trivial things.
Narcissists display their sense of entitlement even in the most trivial things. They are like “Karens” who ask baristas in coffee shops if they could speak with the manager because their names are misspelled. They are known for their entitled ways beyond the scope of acceptable standards.

The inability to achieve such perfection causes them dissatisfaction, expressed in complaints, or worse narcissistic rage.
