5 Weaknesses All Narcissists Have But Don't Want You To Know


Narcissists have a lot of weaknesses. They're not the big bad wolves that they pretend to be. They're very fragile. And there are many ways that you can turn the tables on them. There are many ways you can reverse the situation and gain the upper hand. And it all starts by identifying some of their main weaknesses.



1. Jealousy Narcissists are very jealous. They feel envious resentment of other people and their achievements, possessions and perceived advantages. So they begin to feel and show opposition and dislike. They become unfriendly. They become anxious to prevent and put an end to you. They disagree with you on everything. They always have to like and support something that is opposite to what you like. They're always contrasting and conflicting with you. Because that's how they gain control. And they need control because they're very insecure. They're very weak and fragile. They're always comparing themselves to other people. They're always looking at other people's lives. And wondering why they have what they have. Wondering why they don't have that. And believing that they are more deserving of it. Narcissists are very jealous. Because they're ungrateful. They're never happy with anything they have. Which makes them very weak. Because they can't be happy for anyone. They're always comparing themselves. They're always scanning the environment for threats. They're always looking for competition. 2. Greed Narcissists are very greedy. They have intense and selfish desires for wealth, power and even food. They don't know when to stop. They always want more. They are insatiable. They have an appetite that is impossible to satisfy. Which is why it's so difficult to reach an agreement with them. And to deal or bargain with them. There's never a resolution. There's never an act of solving the problem or finding a way to improve the difficult situation. Because they're never satisfied. They're never happy with anything. Which is one of their main weaknesses. Because just like anyone else, they want to feel satisfied. They want to be happy. 3. Lack of empathy They lack the ability to understand and share other people's feelings and experiences. They lack the ability to imagine what it would be like to be in another person's situation. They don't understand what you're experiencing from within your frame of reference. They don't share your feelings and emotions as if they were their own. So it's like they're deaf and blind. Because they don't see or hear anyone else's opinions and perspectives other than their own. So they're not open to any kind of resolution. Nothing ever gets resolved with them. Because people don't feel like they're being seen or heard with them. People don't feel like they matter. So they never progress. Because they don't see other people's opinions or perspectives. 4. Criticism Narcissists are very sensitive to criticism. Because they have no inner sense of value. So they're very easily offended. It doesn't take much to set them off. They can dish it out, but they can't take it. They can easily criticise other people. But they don't like it when other people criticise them. Even if it's constructive. Even if it's intended to have a useful and beneficial purpose. They don't want to hear it. They don't want to take accountability for anything. So they don't learn from their mistakes. They don't improve anything.



5. Paranoia They always think people are out to get them. They think people are against them. Because they have a black and white mentality. Where you're either with them or against them. And if you're not supporting them, then you must be their enemy. So they're always on edge. They're always waiting for the other shoe to drop. When you may be trying to cooperate with them. But they can't see it, because they're so paranoid. Their anxiety and fear takes over them.

I’m definitely dealing with a narcissist baby and all you said is right about them. They are just naturally selfish and sometimes they think thye are hurting which you are only trying to help the situation

I’ve seen all these behaviors in my encounters with them. They get easily offended which I find so odd. The ones I encountered always cracked mean spirited jokes at my expense. However, if I teased them in the slightest or unharmful way they’ll get their feelings hurt. But there is a somewhat bright side to this, I’m noticing just how petty they are. For example, they always have to one up someone, criticize or deliberately disagree with anyone & everyone. Because of this, I’m learning who they really are. It helps me know which ones to trust who aren't narcissistic from the ones I need to let go of. It’s like the saying goes, “It’s good whenever the trash takes…
