If you’ve experienced being with a narcissist, you’re familiar with their inability to sit still or fully relax. But why is this? Does it relate to their nervous system, their need for instant gratification, or perhaps their dopamine-seeking behavior? In today’s episode, we’ll delve into why narcissists struggle to stay still and why they easily get bored.
