I understand the similarities and even have books on NPD because there isn't much on HPDs and my therapist concurs as well. I'll check it out.
Yeah come chat with Narcissists like me on the NPD forum.

I've met one histrionic person that lacked empathy but I think she likely had some strong narcissistic traits so it wasn't "just" HPD; but it seems most of the people with HPD I've seen here do have empathy, unlike people with NPD like myself.
