Confusion is a tactic that highly narcissistic people use to control. Narcissists are inherently inveterate liars (practiced and skilled.) They are highly skilled manipulators. True narcissists lack conscience, this in turn allows them to lie without missing a beat. Narcissists count on the fact that when they first meet someone the person does not know what they are. Most people are trusting right off the bat. Most people. including many psychologists and therapists, are just as gullable as anyone else. Many people with NPD seek out these professionals as tools to manupulate others. A narcissists perception of others is that they simply "don't know the difference." Narcissists when confronted will passionately deny, cry, and become enraged that someone has the audacity to confront them. You can show them video, or play them a recording of them saying or doing something they may claim that YOU fabricated it. A narcissist IS NEVER At Fault. Ultimately, the ability to confuse is just another toolbox or knee jerk tactic to control another. Inveterate liars can even make the absurd sound plausable when they lie. Reflection as a way of dealing with a narcissist will simply make them enraged. Rage tends to be the narcissists last defense. When a narcissist realizes they can no longer manupulate someone, the narcissist has no more use for that person. I think that they do it as a matter of course. It's a natural by product of who they are..... of their conflicting emotions and over valuation and devaluation process.... their outside activities and feelings of entitlement. They pull you in when they feel you're drifting then get conflicted about that and feel sick with the threat of intimacy. It may seem out of the blue, but there's rhyme and reason there. If they persue other sources.... they may pick fights to do that. It's WHO they are.... not something they DO to you in a personal hateful manner. That's why it's so confusing to be involved with them. They're constantly flipping and flopping..... until we're walking on eggshells and find wer're frightened that we're doing, even that, wrong. That really is a sad statement...and it makes me very very sad for myself but....that's pretty much how it goes if you're dependant on the N's moods and good will. Think Gaslighting and don't take it personally. Tremusan I think that they do it as a matter of course.

How do you describe the behavioral patterns of a textbook NPD to someone who is not involved?

We ALL have a little narcissism in us and it boils down to "ego." Some are just more quiet about it and most of us (thank heavens) are not abusive in nature about it. Most people would understand what a narcissist is, but unfortunately it comes under verbal/physical abuse. Until a psychologist/psychiatrist has diagnosed a person as being a narcissist then it is just arm-chair psychology. It's best to relate to another person the verbal or physical way the person treated you and forget this new age word "narcissist" because it's confusing.

Can a narcissist really fool people into believing he likes them and values their friendship?

That entirely depends upon the value system of the "target" of the narcissist. For the naive, loyal, trusting sorts...the answer is likely "yes." For those who effectively learn from and use previous life experiences to form their value system and this results in useful critical thinking, healthy suspicions or healthy self-confidence....the answer is likely "no." I believe the most confounding characteristic of the narcissist is that "bait-and-switch-and-then-switch-back-to-the-bait" socializing technique of theirs! They're nice. They're a terror. They turn back to nice. On the receiving end, this is...confusing. And for many, especially those who believe all people are inherently "good,"...there's the inclination to cling to the nice-part of the narcissist; a personal hope/belief that the narcissist will somehow BE or RETURN to BEING that "nice" person that s/he first met or has known. It's hard to let go of that nice or charming person whom they initially knew or met...

If one is horrified because he just realized he was a narcissist does this contradict his own verdict of being a narcissist?

If one has narcissistic tendencies and characteristics then later in life when those are totally entrenched in one's character, even with self knowledge, my psychiatrist informs me that it is impossible to change them. She says that one has to learn strategies to deal with them. Surely, if one of the characteristics of a narcissist is to have a 'false self' then one is only creating a further 'false self' albeit with hindsight and awareness. Awareness of narcissistic characteristics is terrifying, and confusing, and I would question anyone that has not queried their own motives, or realised that they behave differently from others, at some point in their lives. Sometimes I feel that self knowledge is not always a good thing.
