You probably work with a weasel

 

The Weasel Spectrum runs from Jerks to Sociopaths, with Narcissistic Weasels in the middle. Narcissistic Weasels are different from regular narcissists. We are all a little self-absorbed sometimes. People call us on our stuff, we see it, we apologize, and change.

 

That’s not what I’m talking about.

I’m talking about Weasels with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). These Weasels can’t see how their behavior is damaging to themselves and others. All they see is what they want and what they need to do to get it. Since they can’t see the havoc they cause, Narcissistic Weasels operate on the basis that everything they think, believe, and do is right (even when it changes every other day). Narcissistic Weasels won’t ever change.

 

This is the most important thing to understand when dealing with Weasels who are on the NPD, Borderline, Sociopath spectrum. They think they are fine. In fact, they believe they are amazing, awesome, and wonderful. And anything that does not fit their world view must be overcome, rejected, or denied. They can’t see who they are or how what they do
