Beware of the Covert Narcissist

An individual with overt narcissism is typically extroverted, bold, and seeks attention. These people may become aggressive or violent when their sense of status is challenged by others. It is less obvious to tell if a person has covert narcissism. People with covert narcissism often appear shy, withdrawn, or self-deprecating. Yet, they are still self-absorbed and believe they are superior to other people.
