The real cause of narcissistic personality disorder is more complex than that of misogyny where we understand that it is an unconscious behavioral defect caused by past trauma involving a female especially the one they love. The causes of narcissistic personality disorder is generally grouped into three (3) and they are listed below.
1. Environment 
Environment plays a major role in the upbringing of a child. Children learn very fast from what they are exposed to and this has a way of shaping their personality. Parental lifestyle is another environmental factor. The words parent use in addressing their kids also shape them. When you adore or criticize a child excessively could lead to narcissist personality disorder.
