1. The Narcissist (AKA Social Media/Selfie Promoting Professional)

Most Narcissists will do this many times a day.

These addicts are lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, abusive, and more. This person will drain you. So guard your heart will diligence.

Most narcissists will not seek to change their narcissistic behaviors. Thus, they have poor relationships with others.

They are best avoided.

2. The Perfectionist


This approval addict considers themselves a god.

The only One who walks in complete perfection is Christ alone. All mankind will not achieve total perfection as Christ did.

The Perfectionist will try to prove they are above all human weaknesses. They seek the approval of man at all costs. They are boastful and display narcissistic behaviors.

The perfectionist will scrutinize any perceived flaws you may have. It is wise to perceive them fast.

Research Hebrews 12

3. The Professional Blamer

This approval addict has a “me against the world” mentality.

This approval addict never takes ownership of their shortcomings. If they are the origin of a problem — in their eyes it will always be someone else’s fault.

Similar to the perfectionist, this approval addict wants to be a god. It is wise to not argue with a professional blamer.
