When we talk about narcissism, we talk about the two main categories of narcissists – overt and covert narcissists. You know that person who walks into the room, has a sense of grandiosity and commands the attention? That’s an overt narcissist. But today I want to focus on the other type, the covert narcissist, and why I believe it’s the most dangerous type of narcissists.

What You Will Learn In This Episode:

  • Why covert narcissists are difficult to recognise
  • How to spot passive aggressive behaviour
  • Self-criticism or shyness as possible traits of a covert narcissist
  • The false sense of self and the childhood wounds of narcissists
  • Why narcissists never seek a therapist
  • Envy, jealousy and false empathy
  • How covert narcissists present themselves as victims
  • Focusing on yourself as the first step in healing from narcissistic abuse  

So let me know – do you have a covert narcissist in your life? Can you relate to anything that I’ve covered in this episode?
