If you have to work closely with them then try to deal with their attitude if possible. If it's affecting your work then it's time to see your Supervisor or the boss. If you do the latter don't say the person is narcissistic because they have not been clinically deemed so, but just say they are impossible to work with. Before you get too upset and do the above try asking this person out for a drink or a coffee and see if you can get to know them on a work basis a little better. They may have personal problems that comes off that they are narcissistic. Always realize that in a place of work there are always those that like to climb over the bodies of others to reach their goal. Marcy
