How to spot one... If only I had a dime for every time I crossed the path of someone that fit this list in "Corporate America"... I could have retired after my first year of work, lived until I was 100 and still left my children/grandchildren a very healthy inheritance! Sad to say.
There are many ways narcissists use to bait others into conflict. Some of them are: Dredging up incidents from the past, shaming, attacking your integrity, accusing you of lying/cheating, triangulating you against someone else. While the methods they use vary, their motivation for baiting others into conflict is for power & control. When a narcissist can antagonize others to the point of feeling or expressing strong emotions, they get a surge of abusive power.
