    How good are you at spotting a malignant narcissist?

    My observation is that most people will follow the malignant narcissist despite obvious red flags. That being said, meeting a malignant narcissist is not a common, everyday occurrence.

    Your observations are right. People tend to follow malignant narcissists. Maybe because the ego of the narcissist is huge and those who are in general followers, follow the loudest voice in the room regardless of what comes out of their mouth. I like to call those followers backstage slavish fanatics. They don't question the statements or characteristics of the narcissist and follow religiously and slavishly as if single-minded. These two types of people can be found among high school students, in workplace environments and even on the presidential candidate trails. I mean, just look at some of our presidential candidates. Jeez, I hope I haven't offended anyone.

      Great answer, Elvisa. I take it you're referring to Trump. Lol. But seriously, Malignant narcissism can be overt or covert. It would be well for people to understand cruelty for what it is, so they can avoid it and escape terrible harm.

      Yes. Hah! Try and rationalize with a Republican. Impossible. Even when you say "sky is blue" they will completely ignore the fact and fight you on it.

      I was trying to figure out how to break it to you, but I am a Republican. I assure you, we're not all monsters. But as you know by now, I do not trust Trump. Not at all. Hope I didn't shock you too badly, Elvisa. wink

      Oh, I knew that. I read comments of yours on another question. I should have specified that it was SOME members here and most of my republican friends.

    The problem is, at the beginning of a new relationship, the manipulation is subliminal. If they are good at it then it won't be noticed until long after a pattern in ingrained in the relationship.

    How to deal with a person with an absence of conscience:
    1 Stay alert
    2 Stop responding to 'crazy-making', ignore them
    3 Don't tolerate overstepping of boundaries
