According to one of the many published psychologists, Internet Trolls and Incels are considered covert narcissists.
I NEVER thought that these two could be considered that but now I find them very chilling in an uncomfortable way. :(

Covert narcissists are the scariest. I don't know what is worse, the outward ones or the convert ones. Also there is a overlap between autism and covert narcissism and an overlap between BPD and covert narcissism. My ex was definitely a covert narcissist but he also had BPD. Covert narcissism is so hard to spot it can be mistaken for autism to explain their behavior towards the victim. The the victim continues to let it happen thinking they don't know any better and it's not intentional. I believe lot of partners on AS Partners are actually narcissistits than aspies. The women there just place that aspie label on them. Men get upset if their wife is found to not be aspie and say she faked out the doctor.

I have a quilt of labels. I had a language disorder and a speech disorder. Then communication disorder NOS. My other diagnoses have been Language Processing disorder, dyspraxia, SPD, OCD, ADD, Asperger’s, anxiety disorder, adjustment disorder, anorexia nervosa. My mom’s labels of me are: eating disorder, anorexia, social anxiety, PTSD, just being sensitive and having the victim complex when I was a kid. And of course she says I’m normal and says the only thing I had as a child was language. Huh? I must have been a shitty person then and maybe a difficult child I was who had to be labeled because of incompetent school staff and mean kids who didn’t accept differences and because I was trying to be “normal.” :/
