2 things here for me, 1 therapist would class me as an AuDHD with NPD, the other put it as a naturally high self confidence and esteem. There's been no abuse other than emotional neglect being an undiagnosed child and not receiving emotional support at home. Ithe other is i tend to get branded with NPD by other autistists on the internet. Perhaps high self esteem and confidence is rare, therefore be shunned and on my own most of the time.

I believe you might be on to something. I anticipate that a lot of autistics would report low self esteem and would be prone demonstrating a lack of confidence.

I believe it's not unreasonable that encountering people who possess opposite traits might rub many of us the wrong way.
