The Concealed Narcissist.
One of the most difficult individuals to identify are the Concealed or Hidden Narcissists.
They are so clever at disguising their true intentions, lack of conscience and emotional threats to you.
Often they appear to be humble and self effacing, butter doesn’t melt in their mouths.
They give you just the right kind of attention that makes you feel that you are deeply appreciated and respected.
You breathe a sigh of relief and believe that you have found someone whom you can finally trust.
They have a way of putting you at ease and off guard.

That is how fine of an act they have honed down.
You will find them in every population.
Some thrive in religious circles, spiritual communities and in mental health professions.
However they range the gambit in formal education socioeconomic status, social status and circles of influence.
