When you start looking for it, you can find a lot of information out there with regard to narcissism. Some of it is valid, some of it is useful but they do not convey everything you need to know. Some of it is wrong and peddles myths about our behaviour which is unhelpful and misleading. Some of the information is downright dangerous in that it fails to recognise narcissism and/or encourages action and behaviours which are contrary to your best interests.
Some of you have had this misfortune before coming across my work but then realised you had found the Holy Grail and rightly jettisoned the poor providers. Some of you have been a little naughty and continued with other providers alongside my work and some of those other providers might not have assisted you (even confused you) to the extent you needed.
Where have you found poor information about narcissism? Where have you had a poor experience with regard to understanding narcissism?
Have you picked up a book which is meant to be about narcissism and thought ‘this is rubbish’? Have you consulted with a victim only to find they use it as a means of charging you for offloading and ranting about their own experiences? Have you seen something on a blog and thought that is nonsense? Perhaps you have encountered hostility on a YouTube page or on a supposed support forum from those operating the page of forum? Have you consulted with a relationship advisor who failed to identify you were with a narcissist and you found out later from my work or somewhere else that this person was a narcissist? Have you read an online page which passes narcissism off as something else and dangerously so? Have you had a supposed professional fail you?
Whatever it is, take the poll and you may choose up to three of the poorest experiences you have suffered or encountered and as usual do expand in the comments section.
