Narcissists are probably the worst kind of people. They take advantage of every aspect they can, and they’re always looking for a way to make themselves look even cooler.
Narcissists are people who don’t think about a single thing except for themselves. They are always looking out for ways to make themselves look better than other people, tell people what to do, or just gloat on themselves. They are the centers of their own worlds and it is impossible to get them off of their pedestal. They make themselves out to have no problems whatsoever, but in fact, narcissists usually have deep psychological issues as to why they’re so self-obsessed. If you feel like a narcissist has been trying to control you or take advantage of you, just remember these eight weaknesses. They all have them, and sometimes it’s necessary to remind them that they’re not superhuman and they can’t just do whatever they want.
Abandonment and Rejection
Narcissists think so highly of themselves, but they’re nothing if there is nobody there to gloat to. They always have to be compared to other people, and subconsciously they hold themselves as ranked high. However, they might use their presence against you, but their biggest fears are abandonment and rejection.
Being Made Fun Of
Even if you are joking, a narcissist can not stand to be made fun of. It can something pointless and ridiculous, but if the group is having a laugh on them, they are extremely angered. They play all the jokes, but as soon as one is pulled on them it is the end of the world. They simply cannot stand being made fun of.
A narcissist thinks that their opinion is most important overall. They fully expect the world to be indebted to them and people have to worship the ground they walk on. One of their biggest fears is when people disrespect them and their opinion not mattering in a spotlight.
If a narcissist wants your attention they will demand it. They cannot stand being left behind or ignored. They have to be the center of attention, and if they’re not they will pitch a fit. If you ignore them it drives them crazy, an excellent way to combat their meanness.
Overall a narcissist’s biggest fear is being exposed for who they really are. They are terrified to let the world know that they actually have flaws. They always do what is most beneficial for themselves and it terrifies them to be exposed of this. They might get very angry at you because they simply cannot admit to their own faults.
Loss Of Youth
Youth has always been associated with a sense of perfection. Narcissists are terrified of aging because they feel as if they lose value as they get older. They want to stay young, fit, and dominant over other people. Once they lose their charismatic traits they are essentially powerless.
Not Being Successful
Narcissists are obsessed with materialism. They care about who has the newest iPhone, car, or mansion. They get their entirely of self-worth from objects, looks, and wealth. If they aren’t ‘successful’ in life it’s all over. Nothing else matters to them.
Ultimately a narcissist is afraid of death. They are completely and utterly afraid for to be unknown, oblivion is their biggest fear because they feel as if they can never be forgotten. They also love to feel like they are in control of every situation, and death is the ultimate thing they can’t control.
