My opinion is that they are biogenic. I know of a family where the father was narcissitic, kleptomania, and was bipolar. He could only be medicated for bipolar. Also borderline personality disorder. Complete lack of an ability to empathize.

All his children suffer from the same maladies and showed signs at an early age. Once could say that was environmental. However Two of the children grew up in a home separate from the father at an early age. Both were narcissistic and stole and lack of a conscience.

I think environmental has been overstressed in those with personality disorder and biology underplayed. Our society frowns on anything that claims that human behavior is due to biology. Makes one look like a fascist.

I would think that it is hard to medicate these types of personality disorders and also hard to change them through psychotherapy. The narcissitic person with no feeling of guilt is more likely to try and outwit the therapist because the narcissistic pd person doesn't think anything is wrong with him/her. Certainly difficult to treat and outlook not that good. Just my opinion.
