8. Misunderstood Genius
Feeling at odds with most people, the covert narcissist is apt to claim it is others, not them who are to blame. They reassure themselves that they are “exceptional” and “ahead of their time” to justify their failure to gain acceptance or agreement with others.

It will hardly occur to the narcissist that they are in denial about their own ineptitude and short-comings.
