We talk about narcissism and gaslighting all the time, so when we found this clip, we knew it had to be shared. Perhaps you have experience with arguing with a narcissistic husband or wife. Maybe you already know what kind of cycle a narcissist will use when in an argument or trying to prove their point. Whether you’ve experienced an argument with a narcissist, it’s good to know what to look for and what to expect, should you find yourself in a “heated debate.” Here’s what arguing with a narcissist sounds like:

Now that you know what arguing with a narcissist sounds like, do you know about exposing narcissists? It’s tricky business. If you feel the need to expose them, be prepared for an argument close to what you just heard. They will stop at nothing to get their way.

Narcissists live in their fantasies, where they are the sole hero. In these fantasies, they are “perfect” and all-knowing. Everyone around them is at their mercy. This narcissist knows just how to justify his/her own poor behavior, which makes it nearly impossible to rationalize with them. So, anyone who attempts to shatter this dream world is a threat. In order to avoid losing their delusion, narcissists do and say anything to maintain their world.

Maintaining any form of relationship with a narcissist can be dangerous. From growing up in a narcissistic family to finding yourself in a relationship with one, it’s important to know how to protect yourself against their tactics. Once a narcissist has a hold on his/her victim, it can become difficult to find a way out, so be sure to proceed with caution.
