Wonderful to see DT being referred to as a destructive narcissist by Fintan O'Toole in today's Irish Times. It reminded me of a manager I experienced at Wretchington University. She was simply awful, married to a functional psychopath and both of them manipulated and were manipulated by the Director of Human Resources and the Chief Executive - the man with the air of a public lavatory attendant. Neither of these people acted responsibly in dealing with the concerns of aggrieved members of staff who were being violently treated by the two sick managers. It was not in their interest to accept that such violence was happening on their patch, nor on their watch.
The Destructive Narcissist I knew allegedly had her fitness to practice as a counselling psychologist fiddled by a 'very close personal friend' - a clinical psychologist - and to this day she sits on the Professional Affairs Committee of her (un)Professional Body.
So it goes.
