There are different types of a narcissist, one of them is being a covert narcissist. The covert narcissist believes they are awesome and the world largely disagrees with them.
Covert Narcissists are dangerous! You will never see them coming. They have a way of making you feel like you never even found the proof against them in the first place. They will flatter and charm you with their “shyness” to get close enough to you that they can get their fangs deep into you. All the flattery of the initial meeting is a phase in which they are sizing you up, quite possibly full to the brim with boiling envy and narcissistic rage that you have something that they “deserve” to be given the purpose of which is to learn your weaknesses and vulnerabilities so they can drain you dry.

- Has a grandiose sense of self-importance, exaggerates achievements and talents
