HSP narcissists

Did you know that highly sensitive people and narcissists tend to be attracted to each other?

I’ve welcomed Nikki Eisenhauer onto the show today to discuss what a narcissist is and why HSPs can be drawn to people with narcissistic personality disorder.

I think it’s important for HSPs to be aware of this topic so they can identify and deal with harmful relationships.

Nikki is an engaging guest and does a great job of explaining this topic in a digestible way. She is a licensed professional counselor (LPC), chemical dependency counselor (LCDC), yoga and meditation teacher, and possible budding comedian.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • What is a narcissist vs. sociopath personality
  • The difference between anxiety and intuition
  • What it’s like to be an HSP and a therapist
  • What most therapists don’t know about HSPs
  • Why improv might be good for HSPs
  • and more!

Nikki specializes in trauma, grief and loss, addiction, and has come to understand what wounds, drives, and heals Highly Sensitive People. Her most recent passion project is Wise Owl Within, where she offers Sensitive and Healers support, evolution, and the life they desire. Get in touch with her on Facebook and Twitter!
