Set boundaries. Narcissistic men feel they deserve special treatment and often lack respect for the personal and professional boundaries of others. This could manifest itself in actions such as taking over control of a meeting or presentation, constantly over-talking or interrupting colleagues, patronizing others or becoming angry when they are unable to control a situation.
