Wow! I’ve never seen this type of person (malignant narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths) called out so specifically and accurately as in this list of modus operandi traits you may recognize from some of your interactions with family, “friends” or acquaintances. Good to know, so you can recognize what’s happening before the worst “psychic whacks” occur, so you can disengage and save yourself a lot of unnecessary grief.

I’d usually just reblog this one, but the reblog format is funky. So I’m just going to say this:
Shahida Arabi, via her Self-Care Haven blog, recently posted an excellent summary of 20 often-used Bully and NarciPath tactics.
I shared Shahida’s “Five Ways Narcissists Get In Your Head” post some time ago, and mentioned her blog in my “Withholding as a Manipulation Tactic” post for the Empaths & Sensitives ‘readers favorite’ series (which spotlights other common tactics, like ‘leveling’, ‘off-loading’ and others as well).
The point isn’t to shame and blame — ’nuffa that going on — but to recognize the tactics and patterns so we can more easily step outside of them and respond rather than react from a place of awareness and greater resourcefulness.
That can be tall practice…
