6 things That Instantly Triggers a Narcissist

Today’s topic is about 6 things Narcissists hate, it is not difficult for them to suddenly view you as an enemy or a threat. So, I will provide some more details or examples of the types of things we may innocently do, but the Narcissist will take offense and will want to punish us for it.

Because these are things that can cause a Narcissistic Injury meaning they devastate or crush the Narcissist’s ego. Basically, the Narcissist’s pride is negatively affected by these things. So, whether they are done knowingly or unknowingly they will anger the Narcissist.

Number 1: They hate being challenged or criticized.

They will become defensive when you try to challenge their beliefs and actions. And they view it as a personal attack when someone questions the way they think about something or what they have done. They hate it when someone points out a flaw or openly finds fault with them.

They despise those who disagree with them on anything. Narcissists really do believe that they are superior and that whatever they do is perfectly fine and should not be challenged. Complements are always welcomed but not critiques. No matter how constructive you think the critique is, the Narcissist will still be offended.

Even those Covert Narcissists who in public will try and play it cool and are even grateful for the feedback, in reality, they are not, and you have just made yourself a target for their passive-aggressive attacks.

Number 2: Narcissists’ hate is being rejected.

They have a huge sense of entitlement so whenever someone tells them no, they hate it. No is a very small but powerful word. It communicates so much to the Narcissist, and I think that is why it makes them so angry. You are basically telling them they do not control you, that you do not owe them anything, and that there are limits to what you would or could do for them.

The Narcissist does not want limits being placed upon them. They want all of you. So, when they ask something of you, they expect a ‘Yes’, nothing else will do. So, not maybe or we’ll have to see what happens because the Narcissist will not be happy with any other response than a yes. So, whenever you reject a Narcissist be prepared for them to retaliate.

Number 3: Narcissists hate is being held accountable for their actions.

They love to blame others for their problems. They love to shift the guilt instead of taking responsibility. So, when someone refuses to be manipulated into feeling guilty or accepting the blame being placed on them it angers the Narcissist because you are choosing to hold them accountable for their problems, or their bad actions.

So, this will make the Narcissist very angry. There will be a lot of resistance from Narcissists as they never take accountability because even when they claim to be repentant and apologetic to appease someone it is not genuine. The Narcissist has either found a way to justify what they did, or they are still in denial that is their fault.

Basically, they have not accepted responsibility, but they are happy for you to think that they have. But forcing narcissists to take accountability for their problems will anger them immensely.

Number 4: Narcissists’ hate is being made fun of or laughed at.

Many Narcissists take themselves very seriously so are apt to become super defensive or aggressive when they are made fun of. Of course, they have no issues laughing at others and making inappropriate jokes but then they cannot handle it when someone does it to them. They have double standards with everything. And they hate it when people treat them how they treat others.

Number 5: Narcissists hate being told the truth.

They are pathological liars and manipulators and when someone calls them out for what they are it angers them. The truth is the Narcissist’s poison. They spend their lives pretending to be something they are not and are constantly running from themselves. So, when someone dares to highlight these negative characteristics, they will defend themselves and spew more lies to protect themselves.

Number 6: Narcissists’ hate is being overlooked or not being the center of attention.

So, if you chose to spend time with someone else instead of the Narcissist, or if you didn’t respond to a text message in a timely manner or returned a missed call the Narcissist will be seething with anger.

It is the same if someone gets more talking time or attention than they do, the Narcissist hates it, as they want to be the one who is always in the spotlight. They need that Narcissistic Supply as it boosts their ego and encourages their false image.

So, when someone does the opposite of that and takes their attention away from the Narcissist it messes with their head and causes them to become not only angry but paranoid.

But to conclude these are 6 things that really anger the Narcissist and it is enough for them to turn against you and make it their life’s work to make your life miserable. This is why no contact or limited contact is so essential because Narcissists are very petty, insecure people who hold grudges forever. And they will never be satisfied with the pain they can inflict on those who have offended them.
