Many Narcissists are incredibly intelligent. They may even be at the top of their field, or perhaps you feel that they are really underachieving considering how intelligent they are.
They may tell you all about their degrees, their advanced military service, or other elaborate stories that paint them to be a highly regarded, and highly intelligent person. But don’t be too quick to assume that everything they are telling you is the truth–if they are a manipulative person, or have a history of lying, then the one thing you can count on is that they aren’t telling you the truth!
If you spend enough time with them you may start to realize that they always seem to get their way–it’s like they can talk their way into, or out of, almost any situation. At first this may seem as though they are highly intelligent, but over time you will start to wonder if their intelligence has less to do with IQ and more to do with them being a con artist (either emotionally or financially–or both).
Learn the red flags, and learn to be a few steps ahead of them.

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.
Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.
It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.
