Why Covert Narcissists Love Your Misfortune (Understanding Schadenfreude)

In this video I discuss the central role the emotion of schadenfreude (taking joy in the misfortune of others) takes in the mental life of the covert narcissist. I explain how schadenfreude is linked with envy and the psychological purpose schadenfreude serves for the covert narcissist.

In next week’s video I will be looking at practical red flags to be aware of when it comes to schadenfreude operating within an individual.
