“As human beings, we all embody the philosophy of the third perspective. None of us neatly fit anywhere– We think we do, but we don’t.” – Dr. Les Carter


I am so excited to welcome my new pal and expert on narcissism, Dr. Les Carter (known as Dr. C) to the show to talk about the traits of narcissists. 

Dr. C walks us through the 8 questions narcissists can’t answer and why, and it’s incredibly illuminating. We talk about the inability of narcissists to be vulnerable, respect differences, manage conflict healthily, consider other opinions, and their need to be in control. 

Dr. C also shares his definition of narcissism and the most common misconceptions he sees about it. 

I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did!
