More Ways to Spot a Narcissist (Part 3 of 3)

There’s a difficult person in your life—the self-absorbed type who twists your words and lobs verbal grenades. It seems impossible to change their mind.

During this series of posts, I’ve been laying out signs to identify if someone is a narcissist.

Why does this matter? Because leadership influence begins with preparation and preparation begins with insights.

Here are three more behaviors to identify a narcissist:

1) They have a sense of entitlement and expect special treatment.
2) They display an absence of empathy and a surplus of criticism.
3) They’re often two-faced and fabricate stories if they feel overlooked.

Starting with the next post, we’ll focus on how to influence the narcissist in your life. Turns out, it’s not impossible at all.
