They keep changing friends

They must constantly renew the friends who praise them, because they get rid of them as soon as they feel their disenchantment.

This supercharged sensitivity and this aspect of their disturbance underscores that their ego is overinflated, or rather artificially inflated can very easily be punctured.
Can be overly defensive
