7 Ways to Confuse a Narcissist


Want to confuse the narcissist? This article is for you. Let’s get started!

Now, for starters, why on Earth would you even want to confuse a narcissist? Why would that be even remotely useful? Well, believe it or not, there can be many benefits to confusing a narcissist, not least of which being it can be a good way to protect yourself. Protect yourself from being manipulated, protect yourself from being controlled and dominated, protect yourself from being gaslit, as well as protecting yourself from more severe forms of abuse.

And the reason being, when it comes to confusing a narcissist, doing so strategically can send a very clear message early on. A message that says you are not going to be a good target, a good and reliable source of narcissistic supply. You are not easy prey. And this, in itself, will be destabilizing for a narcissist. Narcissists like to be in control, and a confused person is definitely not in control. They won’t be in control of you or the dynamic, and a narcissist is likely to find that so uncomfortable that they’ll be forced to go elsewhere for narcissistic supply, which results in you being left in peace.

It’s a very good way to help you gain control while remaining calm and rational, which, of course, helps you to remain empowered and stop giving your power away.

Now, that said, keep in mind that confusing a narcissist isn’t something done out of spite or revenge, but rather a specific and deliberate action or non-action intended to lead to more positive results, preferably for all parties involved. But if not for everyone, then at the very least for you.

And also, keep in mind that some of these tactics may anger the narcissist as well as confuse them, so use wise discernment and caution, especially if your personal safety is in question.

So, now that you know the why, let’s talk about the how.
