Chameleons are lizards who change their colors based on heat, humidity and their emotional state. Metaphorically covert narcissists are chameleons who develop personas that please those they want to impress.
The covert narcissist has the same corrosive personality structure as the grandiose classic narcissist.
The covert narcissist plays up your ego with a worshipful tone and endless compliments. Their pseudo humility and low key personality style is a clever camouflage.
Covert narcissists betray you, play up to you and earn your trust. All the while they are talking behind your back, spreading lies about your personal life and your professional shortcomings.
The numbers of narcissists are growing within a society that rewards them so handsomely.
You are very different from the covert narcissist. You are authentic, worthy of trust, have empathy, have deep integrity.
As you continue to move forward, pay close attention to your intuition which always tells you the truth. Your insights are very clear as are your keen perceptions.
