The kings of manipulatorships

The inner, toxic thinking of the narcissist, as you might imagine, results in some pretty abusive behavior toward the people in their life. They are such master manipulators that some people refer to relationships with a narcissist as “manipulationships.” To deal with this, it’s helpful to understand the manipulative tactics that a narcissist uses. We’ll go over them briefly here, Here are a few manipulative behaviors and some general guidelines for how to handle them.

  • Verbal Abuse: This can take many forms, but typically involves blaming, shaming, and devaluing you. The goal is to shame you into falling in line with the behavior they want from you. When this kind of treatment begins, the best thing you can do is walk away. Let the narcissist know that you’ll be happy to have a calm discussion with them when they can do so respectfully.
