Red Flag of a Narcissist #5: Charming

Narcissist Charm

(Here is a link to all of the “Red Flags of a Narcissist” series articles and videos in a list. I will be putting this link at the bottom of all the articles and videos so you can refer back to them in an easier-to-find way.)

This “Red Flag of a Narcissist” series is not designed to diagnose anyone with a personality disorder. It is designed to present a broad brush look at behaviors that most (if not all) manipulative people tend to have (not just Narcissists). Not all of these red flags are a signal to run for the hills, and a person doesn’t need to have ALL of these flags present to be dangerous or destructive. 

These red flags also occur on a spectrum, meaning that they will be more obvious and troublesome in some people, and not so much in others. 

At the same time, keep in mind that EVERYONE has some of these red flags—however, manipulative people tend to have them to a more troubling degree than normal, non-manipulative people. Keep in mind that Narcissists and Antisocial Personality Disordered people’s red flag behavior is more driven by their lack empathy and remorse, desire to manipulate and exploit other people for their personal gain, which is often not the case with those without these disorders. So don’t panic if you see some of your behavior in these red flags, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a Narcissist, or have a personality disorder. 🙂

I am a self-help junkie, former advocate for victims of domestic violence, current psychiatric RN, as well as being a recovering victim of Narcissistic abuse.

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.

  1. Hi,
    First I want to say that I find your videos very informative. You are so sweet, sincere and knowledgeable about this subject.

    But I have to say that I find them extremely difficult to listen to ONLY because of the constant lip smacking every few seconds. (you may not realize you are doing this)

    I know you MUST be aware that people like me (victims/empaths) are EXTremely sensitive to loud sounds (one of them being people who eat with their mouths open and smack their lips when eating or chewing gum)

    And I hope you don’t take this in the wrong way. That’s not my intention. Personally I would rather listen to the videos, but I just cannot.

    I’m sorry if this offends you, that’s not my intention.
    Andrea

  2. Thanks for the feedback. Someone else had mentioned this several months ago, and I’ve tried to remain more aware of doing that when I record videos. I think (hope) you’ll find in my later videos that I don’t do that–or at least don’t do that as much. 🙂
