Narcissistic brother

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    My brother got into medical school and is in his third year now. He got in and always talks down to me and everyone else when he visits during the holidays. He seems to think that I won't got in when all my teachers do. Do you have any advice with dealing with people like this? Who think they're better than you and always talk down to you.

    He sounds more arrogant than narcissistic. Either way, just make sure you get in too and he'll shut up then.

    With an attitude like that he should be raking in the money doing trading. Or be in prison for selling drugs.

    I've found that people who are really vocal about how great they are in comparison to everyone else are usually overcompensating for some insecurity that they're dealing with. Perhaps it's the same for your brother?
