Contradiction

The most telling thing that narcissists do is contradict themselves. They do this virtually in the same sentence, without even stopping to take a breath. It can be trivial (e.g., about what they want for lunch) or it can be serious (e.g., about whether or not they love you). When you ask them which one they mean, they’ll deny ever saying the first one, though it may literally have been only seconds since they said it—really, how could you think they’d ever have said that? You need to have your head examined! They will contradict FACTS.

They will lie to you about things that you did together or about what opposing counsel and judges state. They will misquote you to yourself. If you disagree with them, they’ll say you’re lying, making stuff up, or are crazy. (Ashmun, 2004)
