Are you interested in knowing what a covert narcissist is? If yes, then this is the right book for you! Narcissists are often manipulative, obsessed with their own needs and desires, and indifferent to others' needs. But there is another equally challenging type of narcissist: the covert narcissist. A covert narcissist is also self-centered and manipulative but has a generally charming demeanor that keeps his or her faults under wraps. They are highly attuned to other people's reactions and adept at using mind games to their advantage. Unlike regular narcissists, it can be hard to spot a covert narcissist; they can fly under the radar for years without detection. But leave no doubt, they are just as dangerous as their overt counterparts -- if not more so. ★★★This book covers the following topics:★★★ Who Can Be a Covert Narcissist? How to Recognize a Covert Narcissist? Control and Manipulation Tactics The Isolation All the Stages of a Relationship with a Covert Narcissist Your Body Knew: Common Illnesses Divorcing a Covert Narcissist ...And many more! Perhaps it's telling that many people can recognize covert narcissists on sight and yet struggle to see them in their loved ones - and in this, I suspect there is a bit of projection going on. I'm sure we all want our relationships with family, friends, and colleagues to be more harmonious and less fraught than the truth sometimes is. Moreover, it's important not to make judgments about those we love based on how they present themselves; thus, we can unwittingly fall into a form of narcissistic injury that engenders resentment on their part.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 There are many types of narcissists. Some are overt, some are covert, and some are somatic. The difference between these types is the overt narcissist is the type of person who openly shows their attributes, while the covert narcissist hides their dark attributes because they want people to like them. #2 Covert narcissists have shorter marriages and romantic relationships. They are often pastors, spiritual leaders, therapists, and heads of nonprofit organizations. They know how to play people, and they thrive off the attention of others. #3 Covert narcissists are likable on the outside world. They appear to be giving, humble, and kind. They have wellpaying careers, and are not outwardly aggressive. They are often successful and charming. However, their destructive traits only become apparent when they are alone with you. #4 When you first begin to realize that a person you have loved and fully believed loved you is a covert narcissist, it is difficult to believe because you have seen them in such a different light for so long. It is a struggle for your brain to reconcile the two personalities.
