Haughty Comments From Narcissists
In an effort to convey how narcissists think in real time, Dr. Les Carter draws upon testimonials from members of Team Healthy who have received haughty comments from narcissists.  Not only do these comments reveal egotism, but they also illustrate how illogical (to the point of ignorant) narcissists can be.  As you are able to see through their entitled attitudes, you will be poised to make the necessary adjustments so you will no longer be ensnared by their efforts to find control over you.

Narcissists Can't Grasp That Control Is An Illusion
It should come as a shock to no one that narcissists have a pervasive need to control people and circumstances, and in this episode Dr. Les Carter describes how it plays out.  But as you pull back and reflect upon the effectiveness of a controlling approach to relationships, you can quickly conclude...it doesn't work.  Control is an illusion.  Even as narcissists seem to score "victories" in their efforts to control, over time, their influence wanes greatly.  Simply put, most people who are on the receiving end of a narcissist's controlling agenda eventually seek the exit.  So what if you decided not to participate in the narcissist's control illusion?  What would that look like?  Join us as we zero in on practical ways to unhook from a narcissist's ill-advised strategy of control.  There is a much better path that you can take.

Here's How Covert Narcissism Works
Narcissism is defined by the need for control, a lack of empathy, an attitude of entitlement, self-absorption, and more.  Overt narcissists leave little to the imagination, and you can spot them rather quickly.  Covert narcissists have the same defining features, but they are much more deliberate in hiding their inclinations.  Over time, however, their real colors will eventually surface, and it can be a great disappointment to you.  Yet, as you learn to spot the indicators, you can become positioned to protect yourself with necessary boundaries.
