explain to him what a narcissist is, explain that Narcissism usually develops at the age of 1 and 2 when a parent becomes weak, like getting him out of the crib when he cries for 3 seconds, when he learns to get away with things early on, he then becomes narcissitic, then say "you may have some of these qualities, if it gets real bad, then tell him, you have some qualities too, as does milions of american's ==Not sure== If that explanation to a narcissist would get any response but anger, exactly what the original questioner is wanting to avoid. I don't believe pointing out what our personal opinions of the cause of narcissism would help. I believe what helps is helping ourselves, victims of the narcissist. Refuse to allow their antics to have any emotional effect on us at all. Ignore their manipulative tendencies because it is a war we cannot win so why get into the battle. The one consistency I have read is to stay away from them. Once you determine you are truly dealing with a narcissist then get far away, if possible. If you allow them to have an affect on you and they see that they are then you are simply be feeding their narcissistic needs and they will continue to use and abuse you.

Should you tell a narcissist he is a narcissist?

There are different ways to approach this issue depending on the circumstances. here are some suggestions: You may want to do that. But if you don't like how the person's acting then don't be friends with them and just don't hang around them. If you are certain you know what behaviors identify a narcissist and that you are correct about your friend then tell it like it is. Encourage your friend to do some reading about narcissism, especially if they are young enough to change their ways.

How do you confront a narcissistic rage?

First of all, remember the rage is not about you, it is about the narcissist. Everything is always about the narcissist. Once you operate from that standpoint it is easier to deal with the issue at hand. Do not try to reason or explain anything in hopes to calm the narcissist, this will likely only draw you further criticism and confrontation. Essentially, without obviously backing down and providing another opportunity for enragement, defuse by accepting the narcissists view for the moment. I am not saying you should actually agree, but for the sake of the moment, agree with the key points without appearing condescending. As soon as possible, remove yourself from the situation and remind yourself that a narcissist lives in an imaginary world of their own making, and within that world there is often no room for logic or another's viewpoint. It's not personal, even though it can feel exquisitely personal, it's about THEM. THEY cannot tolerate feeling whatever they are confronting - lack of control, embarrassment, boredom, etc. If you are a close intimate of a narcissist you provide the role of easy target for many varied disappointments. Have you noticed how you are suddenly quite powerful, somehow causing events not even remotely connected to you? Sure sign you are the whipping-person of a narcissist. Do not think you can change this person. You cannot. Get away while you are still sane.
