#65 Narcissists and Why We Love Them with Kevin Russell

Kevin returns to the show and we pick up right where we left off. From parents to romantic relationships to bosses to astrologers to politicians to Joseph Smith, Kevin and I have been influenced by quite a number of narcissists. We break down and define what narcissism is, unpack dark triad personalities, discuss how Western culture hijacks our desire to live and think communally, why we are so attracted to gurus and those with god complexes (+ why it’s so hard to get away from them), and how we can develop the self-trust and critical discernment necessary to avoid being manipulated by those who don’t have our best interests at heart.
