The reason I started this blog is to provide another online resource for victims of malignant narcissists and sociopaths. That's because of the old saying, "knowledge is power. This is especially true when dealing with a disordered individual.
I decided to focus on female bullies (another word for malignant narcissist) because they are so sneaky. They are every bit as destructive as male bullies, if not more so. There's no peace when a female narcissist is in your life, even if you're not her direct target. Just having one of these personalities in an office, or another setting, will add a great deal of stress to the group dynamics. Female bullies possess almost a superhuman ability to turn people against one another.
So, if you are closely associated with a female narcissist, it behooves you to learn how these bullies work. Read as much as you can about this disorder, so you can spot the telltale signs. Once you see it once or twice, you'll know what to look for. (However, there is also a type of bully known as a covert narcissist. These people appear very humble, yet they are anything but. Two signs of this are inappropriate anger and a sense of entitlement.)
If you work with a female narcissist, be particularly careful not to offend her. She will remember (you can bank on this) and strike back with a vengeance. If you have someone in your circle of friends with strong narcissistic traits, don't introduce her to anyone else you know. That's because she will sow discord in your other relationships. The best way to deal with a narcissist, if possible, is to cut them out of your life.
