Gall is a "brazen boldness coupled with assurance and insolence."

Hubris from ancient Greeks - "Exaggerated pride and self confidence" Ancient Greeks describe hubris as "a dangerous character flaw capable of provoking the wrath of the gods."

Quote from my book: Freeing Yourself From the Narcissist in Your Life:

"Today, society encourages the ascendance of high-level narcissists, rewarding them with extraordinary financial success, social status, public and private adulation."

"The world courts high-level narcissists; they are highly prized and envied, frequently treated like royalty. The narcissist's interactions with others are shallow and venal. He (she) keeps people in his circle as long as they benefit him. When they become an inconvenience or cost him money...they are dismissed without warning...Despite this craven ruthlessness, the narcissist believes that he is an honorable human being. "

"The narcissist is false at all times...He is practiced, a person playing a part. The narcissistic personality is the central figure in his own drama."

Trust your fine discernments and your intuition to identify the true nature of the high level narcissist.

Practice self care: rest, sleep, good nutrition, hydration, movement/exercise, use of your many unique creative gifts.
