Narcissists defined in 3 words:
Ever wonder why you can not discuss anything with a narcissist?
Do you leave any and all attempted conversations with these types confused, perplexed, questioning and a bit uncertain?
Do your best efforts at connection and resolution with this type leave you feeling symbolically impotent- with no hopes of ever getting it up again?
Never fear. The problem is not you.
Narcissists are forever, perpetually and contextually, challenged.
They can’t help it.
Narcissists have no awareness of context because the understanding of context requires an ability to move between self and other points.
Narcissists start at self, and well, stay at self.
Details, connections, interactions and engagements that create a web of context for most of us are lost on the narcissist.
This is why you can never believe what the narcissist says. Nor can you always anticipate the narcissist’s next move. You will link events in your mind leading to potential outcomes. The narcissist will ask “What events?”
There is simply no connection between “Me” and “The Rest of the World” for a narcissist.
There is “Me” and more “Me”.
And that’s all the context the narcissist seems to need.
