From what I've read, one theory suggests that Narcissism usually begins in early adulthood. Some suggest that the onset develops in repsonse to childhood experiences. I don't think anyone knows the EXACT cause. As young children we all have narcissistic tendencies because we can't literally help ourselves but if we continue to be demanding and egotistical as we grow that will create a narcissistic personality
