8 Characteristics That Make You Extremely Vulnerable To Fall For A Narcissist’s Tricks & Manipulation


Some people the moment they find themselves in a relationship with a narcissist, they walk away and avoid being involved with narcissists for the rest of their lives. Others, however, are not so lucky since they seem to attract only narcissists.

They leave one narcissist only to find themselves falling in love with another. Soon, it becomes a vicious cycle and they can’t seem to find their way out.

Why is this happening? Why are some people extremely vulnerable to fall for narcissist’s wicked tricks and manipulations?

Here are 8 reasons why.

1. You Treat Everyone with Respect

You value equality between people and that’s why you treat everyone with the utmost respect. You believe that you should treat others the way you like to be treated. This genuine trait of yours makes you vulnerable to narcissists who use your compassion to get into your head and manipulate you.

2. You Trust People and You Have Integrity

You naturally trust everyone you meet because you yourself are a very honest person and you believe that everyone is like you. However, not everyone has integrity and morals as you do. And your trusting nature makes you easy prey for the narcissist’s false words and promises.

3. You Are Very Compassionate and Honest

Narcissists see your sincerity, empathy, and compassion as your weaknesses that they can use to their favor. What others perceive as wonderful traits, the narcissist perceives it as a vulnerable spot that paves them the way into your life.

4. You Are A Natural Healer

Your pure heart believes that if people were surrounded with love that they can heal from anything and change their toxic ways. The narcissist knows this. They know your desire to heal them and they use this knowledge to their advantage. They neither want to be fixed nor do they think they need healing. They only look to find a way to get to you and use your nurturing side for fulfilling their own selfish needs.  

5. You Love Unconditionally

The narcissist knows that your love is unconditional. They figured that out from the very beginning because they’ve heard how you were talking about your friends and family with so much love and care. Of course, they will exploit this trait of yours for their own purposes. Namely, every time you confront them about something awful they did, they will start apologizing and swearing they did everything out of love for you because they know you are a true believer in unconditional love.

6. You Don’t Have Strong Boundaries

As a person who is incredibly trusting, honest, and compassionate you have trouble setting boundaries. Narcissists immediately see your lack of boundaries and they use it to their advantage. They are drawn to you because they know that you’ll put up with any shit they serve you. They think they can lie to you, cheat on you, manipulate you, gaslight you, and you’ll still stay with them.

7. You Refuse to Give Up on The People You Love

Your loving and forgiving nature stops you from giving up on people. You don’t leave the people you love because you don’t have the heart to do so. The narcissists exploit your trait and that’s why you can’t seem to get out from them even if you want to.

8. You Have Faith in Humanity

You just love everyone, and you truly believe that people are good at heart. This makes you vulnerable to narcissistic tricks and manipulations because you don’t believe that anyone can be so malicious toward another human being.
