Types of people that are easy prey for the narcissists

i) Unhealed Co-dependents

Co-dependent people, usually have traits like fixing, rescuing, and enabling. All of these traits attract the narcissist in a dysfunctional way.

As co-dependent people are people pleasers and lack self-esteem, self-love, and healthy boundaries, they are easily manipulated and abused by narcissists.

ii) Unhealed Adult children of dysfunctional families

In other words, people who grew up in a household where alcoholism or other types of addiction were present. Especially, people who were neglected and suffered abandonment.

Also, people who suffered any type of abuse such as physical/ psychological/ emotional/ verbal/ spiritual/ sexual. The narcissist easily targets these individuals as they are more likely to tolerate the narcissistic abuse.

iii) Empathetic people

This type of people are sometimes unaware and lack knowledge about narcissistic abuse thus they can’t easily identify the red flags early on.
