Victims of familial & relational narcissism are so conditioned to tolerate abuse in their personal lives that they often don’t recognize incivility, bullying, ostracism & harassment in the workplace.
Dysfunctional family & organizational systems may victimize scapegoats & celebrate favorites. In families, these roles are assigned by the narcissistic parent(s). In organizations, they are often assigned by narcissistic superiors.
In toxic familial & institutional cultures, unspoken rules of engagement often lead to systemic dysfunction.
