"Narcissistic" (OR "Narcissism") A recognised trait often stemming from a nuisance or harassing neighbour who has an 'excessive love or admiration' of themselves. The 'NFH' (see below) or anti-socially behaving individual often can have a psychological condition consisting of a self-preoccupation, lack of empathy, and unconscious deficits in self-esteem, which possibly leads to acts of a NFH or ASB.

"Narcissistic Bouncebackability" A Neighbour From Hell (NFH), who is so self-obsessed and infatuated with one's self and yet has the apparent ability to recover from any pitfalls they experience very quickly. The NFH can then find themselves in a 'better position' than before, for the experience and hence display greater narcissistic behaviours as a result.

Bouncebackability + narcissism = 'circular' Neighbour From Hell behaviour?

"NOP" OR "Nasty Older Person" An older person who is a Neighbour From Hell (NFH) (see below) will often play on their advanced age in order to make it seem that their victims are the real NFH.

"NFH" (Neighbour From Hell). Otherwise known as the 'Neighbour From Hell'. A popular term derived for those individuals or groups thereof, who most often knowingly inflict pain and suffering on their neighbours and communities at large through 'un-neighbourly' behaviour. Suffering methods most often include harassment, noise assault, bullying/intimidation, unwanted neighbour-nuisance, anti-social behaviour, rudeness, boundary/planning issues and general self-blinkered attitudes by those in the role of an NFH.

"Noise Abuse" (OR "Noise Pollution") An unrequested, man-made or naturally occurring sound which is audible enough to disturb the environment and those who live in it. To inflict on an unwanted individual or group of people any unwanted and persistent noise which causes distress and 'pollution' of the environment.

Such noise often stems from many different sources (hi-fi's, televisions, nightclubs, pubs, commercial businesses, parties, anti-social behaviour, noisy neighbours, factories, roads, vehicles, aircraft, alarm systems, construction/building work, DIY, etc). Generally, noise pollution is disturbing to a person or person's via an external, unwanted source, which a noise sufferer has little or no control over.
