Being Sensitive: Covert Narcissist vs Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) – The Psychology

What’s the difference between a covert narcissist and a highly sensitive person (HSP)? They seem to have so many similar qualities.

For example:

  • Both are sensitive to criticism.
  • Both HSPs and covert narcissists often have anxiety or worry about what will happen when they walk into a roomful of people.

But how are they different? We’ll go inside the private thoughts of both a highly sensitive person and a covert narcissist to see the difference today in this video.

Whether you’re dealing with a narcissist in a relationship (spouse or partner), or you’re dealing with a narcissistic mother or other friend or family member who may display narcissistic personality disorder, this video will help you better understand why they seem so vulnerable sometimes.
