Narcissists. You know the type of person they are, and the toxic behaviour that accompanies their scaly personality.
They are overtly egotistical, with a grandiose sense of self-importance. They have fantasies of endless success, expect special treatment, enjoy exploiting others, lack empathy, are jealous, and think of themselves as having unlimited brilliance. To say the least, they are arrogant.
While many of these characteristics might seem like they would be be easy to spot in someone, you need to remember that narcissists are tricky individuals. They are capable of manipulating you into thinking they “aren’t like that.”
No one wants to fall victim to the manipulation of a narcissist. Since it would be useful to know who to avoid, I’ve put together a list of 5 things narcissists will never do to you.
1. They will never make you feel safe.
One of the narcissists main tactics is to make you think you need them. They do this by instilling a sense of insecurity within you, making you question yourself, your friends, your family, and your relationship. They feel powerful, and therefore more secure, by being the force behind your doubt.
2. They will never be direct.
Have you heard of “double-speak,” or “word salad?” It’s how a narcissist speaks when they are confronted. Instead of being direct and saying what they mean, a narcissist will use manipulation and deflection. Asking them anything regarding responsibility or fairness results in misdirection.
