I’m only five years into my career and I’ve finally found ways to identify narcissists at work. I’ve run into several self-centered bosses and coworkers between the two jobs I’ve done so far. A narcissist will make everything about him or herself. They will never admit or learn from their mistakes. They are extremely insecure and jealous about your successes and constantly try to put you down.
I used to think it’s just the org culture or the type of job I chose. But even after switching jobs, I still see similar type of people that I can’t really avoid working with. I’m trying my best to build the confidence and maturity to learn how to deal with them instead of running away from them. Any advice is welcome and wish me luck.
