Does anyone around you always act like they know everything? Do they consider themselves smarter, more attractive, and more successful than everyone else? Do their conversations always start with ‘I,’ ‘me,’ and ‘my?’ Well, if your answer is yes, then this is an obvious sign that you have a narcissistic person at hand.
Narcissistic individuals are the most self-absorbed, conceited human beings that exist on planet Earth. These people simply defy logic and social norms and values don’t apply to them. They live their lives following their own rules and manipulations.
Therefore, never think that you know them. Narcissistic individuals have many disguises behind which they hide their true colors. Narcissists are ready to do anything to make themselves look and feel smarter, more beautiful, and better than everyone else and they don’t care whether they’ll hurt your feelings in the process.
However, there are certain things that narcissists will never do.
Here they are:
1. Listen to you.
A narcissist is not the type of person you go to when you want to vent about your problems. They’ll look at your eyes and act like they’re paying careful attention to every word you’re telling them, but the truth is that they’re not listening to you at all.
A narcissist will listen to you only when they want to take advantage of you, using your problems, insecurities, and fears to get what they need from you.
2. Show compassion and empathy.
Narcissists are incapable of empathy and compassion. These are just abstract terms for them. You could be going through a very difficult period in your life and struggling with problems or emotional pain, but they’ll never show you compassion or show interest in your problems. And if they’re compassionate or offer to help you solve some problem of yours, it’ll only be for showing other people what they did for you.
Narcissists never take responsibility for their mistakes and wrongdoings. They will criticize you, belittle you, lie to you, and hurt your feelings time and time again, but they’ll never admit to it. Whatever goes wrong between you two, it’s never their fault – they never make mistakes. They are always right. They’re simply flawless.
Therefore, know that no matter how many times they hurt you with their words and actions, you’ll never hear them say: “I’m sorry.”
4. Do you a favor for free.
A narcissist will never do you a favor unless it benefits them. If you ask them for help, they’ll agree to help you but not because they’re kind and generous but because this will help them get what they want from you. They’ll never do anything for you for free. They’ll always expect you to return the favor.
5. Express gratitude.
The phrase “Thank you” doesn’t exist in the vocabulary of narcissists. You can be good to them and put their needs, wishes, and problems before your own time and time again, but they’ll never appreciate it. They simply feel entitled to special treatment.
6. Express their feelings.
Never expect a narcissistic individual to show you the true, uncensored side of their character. These people wear different masks – each carefully suited to every occasion. They’d never show you their state of mind and how they feel inside.
