The Narcissist’s Smear Campaign
can be dangerous to your career.
When you find out about the Narcissist’s Smear Campaign,
it will be too late for any damage control.
If the Narc is on the low end of the Corporate Ladder (Somatic Narcs in general are not well educated and so rarely end up in Management positions), then they will not have the power to fire you. As a work around, Somatic Narcissists become well versed in Back Stabbing and different types of Smear Campaigns.
Cerebral Narcissists can be way up on the Corporate Ladder and so can either fire you or ignore you. Smear Campaigns would be beneath them and if you clearly show that you will “not” provide them with Narcissistic Supply, you will either get fired or be very much ignored. One caveat is that the Cerebral Narc may listen to a Somatic Narc’s Smear Tactics. Different kinds of Narcissists do form relationships and can provide Narcissistic Supply to each other. To continue to get Narcissistic Supply from the Somatic Narc, the Cerebral Narc may act against you.
Somatic Narcissists need to be the center of attention when others are around. IMHO it is best to steer clear of Somatic Narcs and if you can, then just leave the room. Moving out of the Narc’s line of sight, means that they can focus on others and not on ways to entrap you.
