Jada Pinkett Smith is an expert of sorts when it comes to spotting narcissists. It's so much easier to pick a narcissist out of the crowd when you've been in intimate relationships with them.

According to PEOPLE, the 48-year-old Real Table Talk show host sat down with her co-hosts — daughter Willow, 18, and mom Adrienne, 66 — and a guest, clinical psychologist Dr. Ramani Durvasula, to discuss the negative impact narcissists can have on people's lives.

"In this industry, you come across all kinds of narcissists," Jada said on Monday's episode of her popular Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk.

She told Dr. Durvasula she was hurt and devastated "big time" by a narcissist.

"Definitely. Big time. Big time. Devastated," Jada said. "Because you bring people into your inner sanctum. They make you believe that they're one thing, and then something happens, and you realize that they are something completely and utterly different. It can be very painful and dangerous."

A new study shows that narcissists are happiest when they are making other people's lives miserable.

The study shows that narcissists who have an inflated sense of self-importance and disregard for others, are less likely to be depressed and stressed out than normal people.

Dr. Durvasula says certain personalities are drawn to narcissists despite being hurt by them in the past.

"People pleasers are very vulnerable to narcissism," she said. "They fall for it because they want to fix... they run around in circles, and they keep giving that narcissist all the supply the narcissist wants."

"Oh, God. Yeah," Willow agreed. "Low key, I might have a little bit of that."

"A lot of people do," said Durvasula. "A lot of people - again, especially women - grow up believing they have to do to earn love."

Jada, admitted she may be co-dependent on narcissists for her emotional well-being. "I need to start seeing her for my co-dependencies!" she said, referring to Dr. Durvasula.
