Oh, narcissists. They never fail to surprise me.
The individuals who create the “the dark side of this world”. From a psychological point of view, they are described as extremely entitled creatures who enjoy nurturing their huge ego.
They have a heightened sense of self-importance, crave for the ultimate power (while usually lacking in potential) and expect to be treated royally.
But, the one thing that makes their nature extremely hostile is their need for exploiting and hurting other people. Greediness is what leads them through life. Empathy is a word that doesn’t exist in their dictionaries. And manipulation is what usually helps them get away with their wrongdoings.
They will come disguised in the things you love the most. With that being said, you should know that they are incredibly tricky, and you won’t be able to recognize them.
That’s why here are some pointers about all the things that a narcissist will never do:
1. THEY DON’T LIKE TO REVEAL THEIR TRUE COLORS
Whatever they do, narcissists will never show their true selves. They are manipulative beings who will lure you in with their fake identities. And once you fall way deep inside the rabbit hole, you’ll sadly find out that it was all a lie.
2. THEY WILL NEVER GIVE YOU THE SECURITY YOU NEED IN A RELATIONSHIP
An experienced narcissist will have you walking on eggshells. They’ll never provide you with a sense of safety and security in the relationship.
Why? Because if there’s one thing that makes them feel powerful, that is being above you and controlling every aspect of your life.
3. THEY HATE LOSING CONTROL
They are the ultimate control-freaks. Once the relationship is established and you are trapped in their spider web, they control you.
But, when that control is slightly interrupted, all hell breaks loose. They become extremely angry and upset. And that is when you should take care of yourself the most.
4. THEY WILL NEVER LET YOU PROVE THEM WRONG
Narcissists tend to argue with you until they convince you that white is actually black. It seems impossible, but that is what they do the best.
They distort the truth and make you blind to everything around you. A narcissist will never let you prove them wrong. Admitting that they are wrong is something they’ll never do.
5. THEY DON’T CONSIDER OTHER PEOPLE AS EQUALS
Because of their delusional, entitled behavior, and the exaggerated self-confidence these people actually believe that they own this world.
They won’t consider anyone as their equal. In fact, they’ll use all their power to bring you down and stop you from achieving greatness.
6. THEY DON’T HAVE COMPASSION FOR PEOPLE
Narcissists don’t care that you had a rough day. They don’t care that your family is breaking apart. A narcissist won’t console you after a hurtful breakup. Because a narcissist doesn’t give a damn about your feelings.
They have zero compassion inside them. I truly wonder if they even have hearts.
7. THEY WILL NEVER DO ANYTHING THAT DOESN’T BENEFIT THEM IN ANY WAY
If you receive something thoughtful from a narcissist, or you feel like all of a sudden, they are being too nice for no apparent reason, be careful.
These energy leeches have it all figured out. Don’t even think for a second that they would do anything that doesn’t benefit them in a certain way.
Whether it’s your trust, your love, or some interest in a certain material value, they’ll find a way to gain it.
8. THEY DON’T TAKE ORDERS FROM ANYONE
Considering we already established that these people are the ultimate control freaks, they will never take orders from anyone.
If they sense that someone is trying to change their course, they’ll strike with the most frightening vengeance you’ve ever seen.
9. THEY WILL NEVER ADMIT THEY HAVE FEELINGS
Not sure if they really have any feeling inside their tiny, lifeless hearts, but if they happen to have some feelings left, they would never show them.
A narcissist never admits they have feelings and emotions. That would only make them weak. And weakness would be the biggest obstacle on their eternal quest for power.
10. THEY DON’T LISTEN
A narcissist will never listen to what you have to say. They’ll just wait for you to shut up, so they can start with their rants.
They don’t care about your opinions. It’s always about their needs and their problems.
11. THEY DON’T GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT’S DUE
Narcissists don’t like to make other people feel good about themselves. They are the only center of the attention. So, don’t be surprised when a narcissist doesn’t give credit where credit is due.
It is probably because they’re green with envy.
12.THEY DON’T LIKE TO BE POLITE
It’s the oldest story in the book. Narcissists are not polite. They might show you a nice, fake personality at the beginning, but then again, that is their most famous trap in order to lure you in.
You’ve been warned! Watch out.
