"Since they are poor problem-solvers, I see coverts resorting to the ‘victim’ role as a semi-conscious and very dark tool in their toolkit,” says Slade. “Once in victim mode they are emotionally persuasive way beyond the ability of a neurotypical person. The sheer effective power of coverts’ ability to manipulate other people never ceases to amaze me.”

Hmmmmm. Any dots being joined anywhere?

This is very familiar. I was married to a covert narcissist and divorced some time ago.

He was emotionally and financially abusive and tried to ruin after I left. I didn't realise he was an abuser until I got out.
