I think at some point or another, we’ve all had run-ins with sociopaths. People who get into your head, maybe seem innocent, but simply want to manipulate you for their benefit.
Sometimes they’re family members, sometimes friends, members of the clergy, or coworkers; they really can appear nearly anywhere in your life.
When it comes to the different types of people we find in our lives, narcissistic manipulators are among the most toxic of all.
They’re the type of people who only care about themselves and will stop nothing to get what they desire. Narcissists will always selfishly place their needs, emotions, and goals above anyone else when they’re making decisions.
They won’t think twice about taking advantage of someone if it is to the narcissists benefit. Their relentless quest for personal power and success is why they’re so manipulative, deceitful, and hard to be around.
Here are 6 phrases narcissists and sociopaths use to control you:
1. “You’re just ________.”
Fill in the blank. “Enamored with me”, “jealous”, “crazy”, “bipolar”, whatever. Sociopaths often get down in the gutter and resort to name-calling to diminish your self-worth and make you insecure.
By bringing you down, they bring justification to their unhealthy behavior and keep you hooked on them.
2. “You just didn’t understand me.”
Sociopaths will do something often referred to as “gaslighting.”
This is when you do something that causes a negative reaction and then blame the person for their negative reaction, saying that they didn’t understand what you were trying to say.
