Can’t stand girl at work

Northern Ireland's number one agony aunt Fiona answers your problems

Dear Fiona, I absolutely can’t stand a girl I work with and I think she has a mental problem. Nobody likes her and it's not just me.

We’re all in shock constantly at the things she does and says. Why are some people so deluded?

R.T, Belfast

Dear R.T,

Everyone has a healthy level of narcissism. It becomes problematic though when someone has an unrealistically inflated self image. They seem oblivious to the responses of others and have absolutely no self-awareness.

However, it’s more to be pitied than scorned as this is usually a defence mechanism to hide insecurities.
