He's Lying Next To You...The Difference Between Psychopaths, Sociopaths, and Narcissists

Narcissists will manipulate others with anger and threats

Narcissists are incredibly manipulative. They use anger, threats, and aggressive or passive aggressive behavior to get what they want.

In some instances, a narcissist will behave like a spoiled toddler throwing a temper tantrum. They will deliver an indignant outburst and act out until they gets their way.

Narcissists employ both positive and negative manipulation techniques. Note that, in this instance, the word positive doesn’t denote something good; both positive and negative manipulation are methods of emotional abuse. The narcissist is basically training or conditioning the subject to behave in a desired manner.

If that sounds sick and twisted, that’s because it is. A narcissist will make you question and doubt yourself, rather than him, by putting you down and making you believe everything is entirely your fault.
