Everybody thinks they know a narcissist, but what if you’re one too? What if, deep down, we all have a bit of narcissism in us? It’s easy to throw the term around and try to diagnose others, but what is a true narcissist? That’s what we cover on this episode of Truth Over Tribe when Patrick sits down with Chuck DeGroat. Chuck is a Professor of Counseling and Christian Spirituality at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. He’s also a licensed therapist and author of the recent book, “When Narcissism Comes to Church.” Listen as he provides a true definition of narcissism, distinguishing between grandiose and vulnerable forms of narcissism. Plus, if narcissism is on a spectrum, are we all a bit of a narcissist after all? And how does your enneagram type correlate with narcissistic tendencies? Plus, what are the damages of narcissistic church leaders and what does he hope changes in evangelicalism over the next decade? Listen now!
