    And actually, one of the best ways to deal with narcissists is to be both non-threatening and yet unmoved by their manipulations to be liked or respected. This is your lever against them. If they wheedle and try to earn compliments, remain aloof and unmoved (unmanipulated). If they try to evoke sympathy, remain aloof. If they try to provoke, remain aloof.

    This is a good way to deal with most people who seek to get something from you. Deny what they seek and yet support the hope that you will eventually relent.

    I think a true narcissist could not abide the idea that anyone would think they were 'weird' or 'bad' or 'broken' so they do really need to be liked and hence not serial killers. Unlike sociopaths, maybe their sense of superiority is merely compensatory against the reality of their insecurity? I don't know. I may be confusing all the different terms.

    Better a narcissist leader than a type-A leader.
