We all run into people who we find to be overbearing, self-involved,  and who like to dominate every conversation.  But what if the domineering or difficult person in your life is truly a narcissist — not just somebody who's pushy or overconfident, but who may have a personality disorder?

It's a topic that seems especially timely, and thanks to one of the show's listeners for suggesting it — and in this episode, we take a peek at what makes a narcissist a narcissist, and why it can be so challenging to deal with one.
