1. Director - ESTJ

The Director, together with the Developer, are known for their bluntness, business acumen and ability to lead. As narcissists, however, their leadership would become a dictatorship. They would micromanage people and overpower them – not for the purpose of organizational efficiency, but for the purpose of feeling superior.

3. Results - ESTP

The Results, together with the Inspirational, are natural-born devil’s advocates so, as narcissists, this trait would be exaggerated in their ability to provoke and demean others. They would argue in favour of horrific crimes or blatant inequalities just to make the people they are debating with angry and / or upset. They would be hypercritical and abrasive, as well as emotionally abusive. Their cruel bluntness would be disguised as, "That’s just the way I am."

5. Persuader - ENFJ

6. Appraiser - ESFJ

The Appraiser would create enmeshed relationships and have no problem violating the boundaries of others. When healthy, they are empathic and giving. But as narcissists, they would ‘give’ only to get back. They may give the bare minimum to people and forcefully demand the maximum in return.


7. Promoter - ENFP

The Promoter when in narcissist mode would always be seeking validation and attention from others. These would probably be the more ‘vulnerable’ narcissists compared to the other patterns, using their relationships with others to hide their core sense of shame.


8. Counselor - ESFP

The Counselor is the party animal who tends to be the life of the party. As a narcissist, they would create harems of adoring fans that cater to their every need and ‘get off’ on all of the attention they are receiving. They love to be the centre of attention and would be perpetual spotlight-hoggers. They are also very into aesthetics, so they may present as a more ‘somatic’ narcissist – someone overly obsessed with their looks and appearance.


9. Specialist - ISFP

The Specialist, together with the Achiever, are gentle as non-narcissists but, as narcissists, would present as a pessimistic a person who hates or distrusts humankind.

They would work to underhandedly sabotage anyone who has what they covet.


10. Investigator - INFJ

The Investigator, together with the Agent, as a narcissist would abuse their power as the changemaker and would be ‘covert’ narcissists – a wolf in sheep’s clothing. They would take their perfectionism and ability to cut off relationships to the extreme by frequently abruptly cutting off all contact with someone (such as a former romantic partner) by no longer accepting or responding to phone calls, text messages, etc. and criticizing them to the nth degree. Rather than using their platforms to help support the populations they serve, they might attempt to use them to feed their grandiosity.

13. Practitioner - ISFJ

The Practitioner is generous to a fault as a non-narcissist. However, as a narcissist, they would present as the quintessential covert, shy and introverted helper with a hidden entitled streak. Although they will appear humble at the onset, make no mistake, they will be taking note of everything they do for you and at any time they feel they are not getting the attention or appreciation they deserve they will lash out. This can be in a terrifying display of narcissistic rage or passive-aggressive behaviour if they do not get what they want.


14. Objective Thinker - ISTJ

The OT, as a narcissist would stonewall their partners, shutting down arguments even before they have had a chance to begin. They would be extremely traditional in the way they view things and use moralistic thinking to control others, all while engaging in hypocritical behaviour behind closed doors. In the realm of work, they would gravitate towards careers in power – such as that of law enforcement – just to abuse their power and get away with it.


15. Perfectionist - INTP

The Perfectionist, together with the Enhancer, as a narcissist would take their rational side way too far. They would be the epitome of what we call the “cerebral narcissist,” using twisted logic to rationalize any mess or situation they have created. They would be prone to dehumanizing others all in the name of reason. Their logical side would be so overblown that they would fail to have any empathy for victims of unfortunate circumstances or crimes – including the crimes they themselves committed.

Black and White Knight Narcissists

The Black Knight Narcissist is evil in nature, influence, or effect. They get their narcissistic supplies from sadistically setting out to demolish other people’s self-esteem and pleasure in life.

The White Knight Narcissist likes to be seen as a good person. They get their narcissistic supplies by doing helpful, generous and kind things for other people. This means that they still: Have shaky self-esteem; Lack whole object relations and object constancy — they cannot see themselves or other people in a stable, integrated and realistic way as simultaneously having both liked and disliked traits; Are extremely self-centered; Lack emotional empathy and cannot feel other people’s joy or sadness nor care deeply about anyone else’s feelings; Are preoccupied with their place in whatever status hierarchy matters to them; Want to be seen as special; Devalue other people when it suits them.
Key observable characteristics of a White Knight Narcissist includes: They want you to think they are good people; They will do favours for other people that make them look good; If they are wealthy, they are likely to be philanthropists who give away large sums of money to causes that they support as long as they get public recognition for doing so. Some, however, are “the good neighbou narcissists.” They will offer to pick up groceries for sick neighbours or help someone to put up their window screens or do some other chore. Helping people makes them feel important and enhances their self-esteem.
In a relationship, one might think that they have hit the jackpot and are with someone who is genuinely kind and caring. They may have met at a charity event or as volunteers in a meals on wheels kitchen. But over time, they see less and less of the White Knight Narcissist's good side. Intimacy subsides. All the good deeds always seem to be done for someone else at their expense. In some cases, the White Knight Narcissist may take off the mask of “do-gooder” at home. After a while, their behaviour may become just as devaluing and hurtful to their spouse as any other type of Narcissist.
Who has not seen a White Knight Narcissist in the office? You might think that they would be loved by their staff, but that is usually not the case. Take someone who works for a charity. They were in therapy to find ways to handle a narcissistic boss. The boss was described as a public hero and a private tyrant. As the face of the charity, the boss was portrayed in the media as a fighter for the rights of the downtrodden. Those who worked for him saw his other side. He devalued his colleagues and everyone who worked for him was afraid of incurring his wrath. He had a bad temper and thought nothing of publicly humiliating anyone people who displeased him. In reality, he was more horror than hero, despite his public persona as a good guy. White Knight Narcissists get their narcissistic supplies from doing good deeds and being seen as great human beings. The reality is that doing good deeds is just another way for them to seize the spotlight and shore up their shaky self-esteem. It might be okay to tolerate the benefits from your friendly White Knight Narcissists’ need to be seen as special. That is preferable than them actively wanting to harm other people.
