Narcissism and Criminal Behavior – What Science Says

5:02 What the Study Results Mean For You

Narcissism and Criminal Behavior: What Science Says

As much research as there is into narcissism, there hasn’t been much done on the criminal community. Nevertheless, one study provides some really interesting insights into how narcissism relates to criminality, and even helps with signs that can alert you to safety concerns. In this video, I review the study, provide some examples, and explain some of the signs to help you in your relationships in your own life.

The One Sign of Pathological Narcissism You’ve Never Heard Before: Part II



The One Sign of Pathological Narcissism You’ve Never Heard Before: Part II
Following up with my previous video, here I clarify that covert and overt narcissism lead to childhood stories that may seem vastly different, but they share one common feature.

Narcissism seems to be born of neglect and abuse, both of which are notorious for creating an insecure attachment style (for more on attachment, see here www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/romance-redux/201211/five-ways-overcome-feelings-neediness and here www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/romance-redux/201206/are-secure-relationships-the-key-exciting-life).

But the very fact that narcissists, for all their posturing, are deeply insecure, also gives us an easy way to spot them. Insecurely attached people can’t talk coherently about their family and childhood; their early memories are confused, contradictory, and riddled with gaps. Narcissists often give themselves away precisely because their childhood story makes no sense, and the most common myth they carry around is the perfect family story. If your date sings their praises for their exalted family but the reasons for their panegyric seem vague or discursive, look out. The devil is in the details, as they say — and very likely, that’s why you’re not hearing them.

Protecting Yourself from Covert Narcissism: What Science Says



00:00 How to Protect Yourself from the Trap of Covert Narcissism: The Science Might Surprise You!
00:25 Brief Overview of Covert vs Overt Narcissism
02:25 New Research on how Covert (Introverted) Narcissists Act in Relationships
06:25 Extraverted (Overt) Narcissism and the Dark Tetrad
08:40 Recognize “Apparent” Vulnerability (Emotionality)!

Covert narcissism and covert narcissists are particularly confusing for survivors because the *appear* to be vulnerable, even though they’re not. And that can be especially troublesome for echoists, as I discussed in the previous video, who may see such moments of apparent vulnerability as a bid for the very caretaking they tend to be good at.

Here I review the most recent hot-off-the-presses research on the difference between overt (extraverted) and covert (introverted) narcissism, with a special focus on the unique dangers each of them presents. Then I give you a way to see way a head of time any trouble the relationship might bring into your life.

Understanding Covert Narcissism: Real Emotion vs Emotionality



00:00 Understanding Covert Narcissism: Real Emotion vs Emotionality
01:49 Emotionality in Covert Narcissism
02:50 A Simple Way to Recognize Emotionality
04:00 Examples of Emotionality
05:00 Do This When You See Emotionality

Covert narcissism, which as I explain in Rethinking Narcissism and in my talks, is simply introverted narcissism. Survivors, especially echoists, who often instinctively rely on caretaking behaviors in their relationships, often confuse the apparent vulnerability or “emotionality” of introverted narcissists with emotion. In previous videos I’ve described this but many of you still had questions about how to tell the difference. Here, I tell you exactly how real emotions and emotionality can be easily distinguished from one another–and what to do to avoid being pulled into old habits when you see inauthentic emotion.

Narcissism and Stealth Control



00:00 Intro
00:43 What is stealth control?
01:25 What does stealth control look like in relationships?
02:21 Stealth control and overt (extraverted) narcissism
04:34 stealth control and covert narcissism
05:37 How to recognize stealth control in all narcissism

Narcissism and Stealth Control

Both overt and covert narcissists frequently exert a form of control over their partners – and while it may appear different in each type, at the core it’s the same. Stealth control restricts our options and opportunity to choose our experiences and arranges events to make sure whatever happens is on the stealth controller’s terms. In this video, learn how to recognize stealth control—and how to tell if there’s room to interact in other, healthier ways.
