Narcissists are always taking advantage of the others around them. Mentioned before, everyone essentially a piece of their master plan which involves getting exactly what they want no matter who gets in their way.

The thing with a narcissist is that they will find new and inventive ways to manipulate you, your friends, and anyone else who decides to be apart of that persons life.

There really is no other way to avoid this kind of behavior because they do it to literally anyone that wants to communicate. They see this as a weakness and prey upon those willing to give their help to just about anyone.

2. Always In Need Of Praise

Another thing that you will notice about a narcissist is that they are always needing constant approval from everyone.

If there is even one person who defies them this praise they will act out in a temper tantrum to the likes that no one has ever seen before. You may think that this is an over exaggeration but I promise you it’s not.

Narcissists thrive off of attention which is one of the reasons why they keep you and everyone around for so long is because they need that validation.

You may think that they could get anyone to do that, yes they could, but if you aren’t doing it then you will witness what it’s like to get on their bad side.

3. Extremely Arrogant With Everything

Narcissists are prone to being arrogant especially when you are trying to confront them on the things that are hurting those around them.

They will consider this a personal attack from you and decide that you are doubting them at every turn, that you’ve never supported them or their ideas, and that you are the worst person on the planet.

Again, you may think that this is an over exaggeration but this is truly how a narcissist feels whenever someone defies their wishes. These people will always prove to be toxic in the end.

4. Obviously Jealous

Narcissists do not hesitate with their jealousy and will proudly display it whenever they see something they don’t have.

They are the most envious whenever they see someone who is essentially better than they are and will act out in every single possible way to deprive that person of praise or attention.

All of this seems like a bit much for one individual to carry out but it’s true.

A narcissist absolutely hates it whenever they find someone or something that is just far beyond their league and they know it’s going to drive them crazy thinking about how much that specific thing is going to gain that much more attention than them.

5. Having Feelings Is Your Fault

Whenever you decide that you want to confront them about all of the things they’ve done wrong to you or someone else they will simply brush it off.

If you give them any kind of emotion or any kind of feeling that goes against what they want they will just tell you that it’s your fault for feeling that way.

A narcissist has no empathy or sympathy for the people around them and it will clear as day when that happens to you.

You may think that this person couldn’t possibly say such horrible things to you but with a narcissist it comes naturally.

6. Over Exaggerate Their Accomplishments

Above all else a narcissist will always boast about themselves as if they were the crown jewels. A narcissist will not let down any opportune moment for them to speak highly of themselves to others.

Again, it’s all about that false validation, they will do absolutely everything and anything to obtain it. This is one of the biggest indications that you are dealing with a narcissist right off the bat.

Especially if you are meeting this person for the first time ever. Since you are a clean slate this means that they can talk about every false little achievement they’ve made in their life up until this point.

If you’re lucky you might even get a chance to speak.

So, the next time you think you or someone you might know is dealing with a narcissist, try to keep these six things in mind. They will make themselves very obvious and you will know the truth sooner rather than later.
