The narcissistic perfectionist

I know a narcissist. I know a perfectionist. But I didn’t know there was a new personality labeled with both traits, which I heard recently on a CBC radio podcast.

You can imagine this personality, right? Also known to damage people close to them. Have you met anyone like this? Have you tried working for one?
