How a Person with Narcissism Responds to a Perceived Offense

When offended, a typical person might experience hurt feelings or feel insulted or angry. However, the offended person might ultimately talk it through with the individual who committed the transgression, with a willingness to repair the relationship and move on.

Not so in the narcissistic relationship. Offending a person with narcissism can lead to immediate, lasting, and perhaps irreparable fallout.

When dealing with a person with narcissism, the rules are different. This is true in all aspects of the relationship, but for this article, the focus is on the narcissistic wound. These types of wounds are unlike other types of interpersonal ruptures. These differences are listed below:

  • Extreme overreaction
  • Causes existential threat to relationship
  • Is never resolved
  • Dr. Jekyll becomes Mr. Hyde
  • Person with narcissism reacts with punishment, banishment, devaluing, or discarding of offender
