Narcissists are some of the most arrogant, egotistical, and vane human beings that you could ever meet on the planet.

The story goes that Narcissus was a very stunning person with his looks, charm, as well as his own admiration for himself.

He was so in love with himself that he attracted the ire of a goddess claimed to be Nemesis, goddess of vengeance against beings who were consumed by their own arrogance.

Essentially, she made him fall in love with a reflection of his own image until he died from staring at himself for his entire life.

These kinds of people have a very cruel intent when it comes to being social with others.

They often times find ways to make people appreciate their beauty and charm enough for them to manipulate you at every single turn they can get.

Soon realizing that they no longer want this kind of attention from these people, they will then go off to find it somewhere else.

Here are some methods you can try when confronting a narcissist.

1. Like To Rush Bad Ideas

Narcissists like to rush people into committing to really terrible ideas. Do not allow them to pressure you into saying yes to something that you are not entirely comfortable with.

Slow them down, make them talk to you first about the idea, and then come up with a solution that both of you will enjoy.

If there is no pleasing this person and everything else you have tried doesn’t work, then you can always say no to this person and walk away.
