How to Manipulate a Narcissist? We all know that narcissists can be very difficult to deal with. But did you know that you can use their emotional weaknesses to your advantage? Everyone has different needs and wants. Some people like the enchilada, while others only want a small slice.

What happens when you ask a narcissist to spend time with you, only to find that they don’t care about you? Or worse, you ask them to do something for you, and then they do it for the wrong reasons?

This is a common problem that narcissists have. They are masters at manipulation and always try to get what they want at any cost. They are experts at reading people’s emotions and motivations to see what they can manipulate them into doing.

Some people want to buy a relationship, while others are content with a friendship. Some people want to make a lot of money, while others want to make enough to pay their bills.

And then there are people like narcissists who are very emotionally needy and want everything done their way.

In this blog post, I will share some of the most powerful techniques I have used to deal with narcissists and get them to like me more.

How to manipulate narcissists

Narcissists are difficult to deal with. They tend to view everyone around them as a threat.

Regarding narcissists, it seems like they’re masters of manipulation. They’ll do just about anything to get what they want. So it makes sense that they’d also be great at manipulating you to gain control over your finances.

As you can see, narcissists are pretty much a lost cause. They’re very difficult to convince and even more difficult to convince to do what you want them to. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try.

They often have a history of abuse and are often triggered by fear or intimidation. Their main goal is to protect themselves from those who might hurt them, and they will stop at nothing to achieve this goal.

How to get rid of narcissists

However, since narcissists often don’t have a healthy relationship with money, you must be creative when convincing them to do what you want. For example, you might get them to feel guilty about their spending. Or you might offer to pay for something that they want.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to feel special. Everyone does. But narcissists will never get it.

When you meet a narcissist, you will notice their inability to empathize with others. They’re self-absorbed and selfish but don’t realize it.

Narcissists crave attention. They’ll go out of their way to garner it. They’ll lie, cheat, and manipulate to get what they want.

Whatever you do, remember that narcissists aren’t happy unless they feel in control. So it’s important to give them that sense of control.

Narcissism is a mental illness.

As I mentioned in the intro, narcissism is a common relationship problem. It’s also a difficult topic to talk about. Narcissists are used to getting their way and often act entitled and controlling.

The good news is that you don’t need to be around them long to understand them. By knowing the signs, you can avoid a relationship that may have been doomed from the start.

They’re looking for someone to validate them and make them feel special.

If you don’t believe me, ask yourself why you keep falling for them; why do you keep giving them what they want?

In this article, I will teach you the manipulation techniques to help you control narcissists. It’s an art form and a very difficult one.

I am not a psychologist or a therapist. But I do know narcissism and manipulation.

I aim to give you the tools to help you navigate narcissists and their behavior.

Myths About Narcissists

1. When you say “I love you” or “I hate you,” they think it’s true.

2. It’s always their fault.

3. A Narcissist always gets attention and never has to work for it.

4. The Narcissist always has the money and never has to work for it.


When you meet someone obsessed with themselves, it’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to manipulate them. I’ve been guilty of it myself.

For example, when I was trying to help a friend with her business, she was extremely critical of every detail of her business plan. I tried to convince her to make small changes to her proposal, but she was completely uninterested in my suggestions.

She wanted to hear only what she wanted to hear. This type of person can be extremely difficult to deal with.

Ultimately, I had to let her go because I couldn’t change her mind, and she wouldn’t listen.

This is not a good way to conduct business.

I don’t believe narcissists are worth your time or energy.

So if you struggle with a selfish person, here are some steps to move on.
