In the tradition of The Sociopath Next Door, clinical psychologist Joseph Burgo’s The Narcissist You Know is a “clear, easily digestible” (Kirkus Reviews) guide to help you identify, disarm, and coexist with extreme narcissists. In today’s social media and selfie-obsessed culture, we are living in an age of narcissism—and a society that often celebrates this potentially harmful trait rather than understanding it as a psychological disorder. Scientists are beginning to learn that narcissism exists on a spectrum—much like autism—and most of us exhibit some mild narcissistic tendencies. But one in twenty people fall into a category the author refers to as Extreme Narcissism, in which these self-absorbed characteristics result in destructive behavior that harms not only the individual but everyone around them, including friends, family, and coworkers. With more than thirty years of experience studying personality disorders and treating extreme narcissists, Dr. Joseph Burgo has developed a useful guidebook to help you “spot narcissists out there in the wild” (Glamour) and then understand and manage the narcissistic personalities in your own life. Relying on detailed profiles, vignettes from the author’s practice, and celebrity biographies, The Narcissist You Know offers easy-to-understand tools and solutions you can use to defuse hostile situations and survive assaults on your self-esteem should you ever find yourself in an extreme narcissist’s orbit.

Wer ist der Teufel? Ist es Ihr Ex-Mann, der Sie belogen und betrogen hat? Ihr sadistischer Lehrer? Ihr Chef? Ihre Kollegin? Erschreckende vier Prozent unserer Mitmenschen - einer von 25 - weisen eine oft unerkannte Persönlichkeitsstörung auf, deren wichtigstes Symptom ein fehlendes Gewissen ist. Soziopathen empfinden weder Scham, Schuld noch Reue. Sie lieben nicht und lernen früh, Gefühle vorzutäuschen. Tatsächlich aber interessieren sie sich nicht für uns. Wie erkennen wir Soziopathen? Um uns gegen sie zu wappnen, lehrt Dr. Stout, Autorität in Frage zu stellen, Schmeichelei mit Skepsis zu begegnen und vor Rührseligkeit auf der Hut zu sein.

Do you know someone who is overly arrogant, shows an extreme lack of empathy, or exhibits an inflated sense of entitlement? Do they exploit others, or engage in magical thinking? These are all traits of narcissistic personality disorder, and when it comes to dealing with narcissists, it can be difficult to get your point across. So how do you handle the narcissistic people in your life? You might interact with them in social or professional settings, and you might even love one—so ignoring them isn’t really a practical solution. They're frustrating, and maybe even intimidating, but ultimately, you need to find a way of communicating effectively with them. Disarming the Narcissist, Second Edition, will show you how to move past the narcissist's defenses using compassionate, empathetic communication. You'll learn how narcissists view the world, how to navigate their coping styles, and why, oftentimes, it's sad and lonely being a narcissist. By learning to anticipate and avoid certain hot-button issues, you'll be able to relate to narcissists without triggering aggression. By validating some common narcissistic concerns, you'll also find out how to be heard in conversation with a narcissist. This book will help you learn to meet your own needs while side-stepping unproductive power struggles and senseless arguments with someone who is at the center of his or her own universe. This new edition also includes new chapters on dealing with narcissistic women, aggressive and abusive narcissists, strategies for safety, and the link between narcissism and sex addiction. Finally, you'll learn how to set limits with your narcissist and when it's time to draw the line on unacceptable behavior.

A timely and provocative exploration of narcissism, from Donald Trump to Kanye West to Lance Armstrong, that shows us how to recognize and handle the narcissists we encounter every day. Narcissists are everywhere. There are millions of them in the United States alone: politicians, entertainers, businesspeople, your neighbors. Recognizing and understanding them is crucial to your not being overtaken by them, says Jeffrey Kluger in his provocative book about this insidious disorder. The odds are good that you know a narcissist—probably a lot of them. You see them in your office, on TV, maybe even in the mirror. The odds are also good that they are intelligent, confident, and articulate—the center of attention. With intelligence, sight and wit, Kluger explains the startling new research into narcissism and the insights that research is yielding. He explains how narcissism and narcissists affect our lives at work and at home, on the road, and in the halls of government; what to do when we encounter narcissists; and how to neutralize narcissism’s effects before it’s too late. As a writer and editor at Time, Kluger knows how to take science’s cutting-edge research and transform it into perceptive, accessible writing—which he does brilliantly in The Narcissist Next Door. Highly readable and deeply engaging, this book helps us understand narcissism and narcissists more fully.

Ein solches Buch über Körpersprache hat es noch nie gegeben: geschrieben von einem FBI-Agenten, dessen Aufgabe es 25 Jahre lang war, Spione, Mörder und Verbrecher anhand ihrer Körpersprache zu entlarven. Denn nur 20 Prozent unserer Kommunikation laufen über das gesprochene Wort. Wir kommunizieren also zu 80 Prozent nonverbal und unbewusst. Der international anerkannte Experte Joe Navarro erklärt exakt, wie man sein Gegenüber durchschaut, wie man Gefühle und Verhaltensweisen präzise entschlüsselt, Fallstricken ausweicht und souverän Körperhaltung und Mimik entlarvt, die in die Irre führen sollen. Von Kopf bis Fuß werden Gesten, Haltung und Mimik unter die Lupe genommen und nach dem neuesten Stand der Forschung analysiert.

The word narcissism is being bandied about like a trend right now and it is getting confusing for those of us that actually have a pathological narcissist in our lives. Narcissism is not just another word for arrogant or conceited. You are not a narcissist because you post a lot of things on the web or take a lot of 'selfies'. Narcissism, in the purest sense of the word is a pathology, a dangerous pathology. If you can't recognize it, you can't protect yourself from it.
