How does a narcissist argue?
Don’t argue about ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ There’s no point trying to figure out who is “to blame” for something, as narcissists will never admit fault. They want to blame you for any negative emotions they are feeling, because they utterly rely on the image they are portraying as being faultless.
Does a narcissist blame others?
Because narcissists’ inner guiding voice is so critical and harsh, narcissists try to avoid all responsibility for anything that goes wrong. In order to avoid self-hatred, they project the blame onto someone else.
Do narcissists know they are hurting you?
Some may learn to be self-aware in time, and learn to notice when they are hurting you. But this still doesn’t guarantee they will care. “Narcissists are primed to be abusive because they’re so hypersensitive, and they don’t have empathy, and they don’t have object constancy,” Greenberg said.
