Narcissistic Conversation Control

Narcissistic individuals who are also sadistic may use a variety of conversation control tactics to manipulate and control others. Some common tactics include:

  1. Gaslighting: A tactic in which the narcissist denies or distorts the reality of a situation, causing the victim to doubt their own perceptions and memory.
  2. Projection: A tactic in which the narcissist attributes their own negative qualities or behaviors to the victim.
  3. Blaming: A tactic in which the narcissist assigns blame to the victim for their own negative emotions or behavior.
  4. Invalidating: A tactic in which the narcissist dismisses or invalidates the feelings, opinions, or experiences of the victim.
  5. Triangulation: A tactic in which the narcissist involves a third party in the conversation or situation, often to create conflict or exert control.
  6. Intimidation: A tactic in which the narcissist uses threats or fear to control the victim.
  7. Devaluing: A tactic in which the narcissist undermines the victim’s self-worth, often through criticism or belittling comments.
  8. Love-bombing: A tactic in which the narcissist uses excessive flattery or attention to gain the victim’s trust or manipulate their emotions.

These tactics can be used in various combinations and may be difficult to detect, as narcissistic individuals can be highly skilled at masking their true intentions. It’s important for individuals who are dealing with narcissistic abuse to seek help and support from a mental health professional, as well as to set clear boundaries and practice self-care to protect their emotional well-being.
