Before we embark on a series exploring covert narcissism in high demand religion, I think it’s important we address one of our collective biggest fears: Are we all just a bunch of narcissists?
In today’s episode, we discuss how you can recognize the basic traits that all clinical narcissists have and questions you can ask yourself to give yourself peace of mind.
We’ll also talk about why some of the behaviors we’ll be discussing in the upcoming weeks might feel eerily familiar, why we might have some maladaptive narcissistic traits, and how to deal with them in a way that is kind and accountable.
