And another one from the same source:
“Narcissists tend both to come from and to create families that overvalue family. They have to. Who would want to be friends with a person who behaves so appallingly and so erratically? Family members are easier to brainwash and find it harder to escape.”
It’s all textbook stuff but it’s still interesting. Narcissists tend to form cult-like families that might actually look quite enviable – strong, devoted – from the outside.
