Humiliation serves as a weapon for narcissists to assert dominance. They have an overwhelming urge to put you down in front of others when they feel threatened by you. Narcissists aim to diminish your self-esteem and make themselves appear superior to you by humiliating you. This behavior is aimed at asserting their dominance and maintaining control. They want to ensure everyone sees their perceived superiority while making you feel small and powerless. This degrading behavior temporarily gives them power and control over you. It also reinforces their distorted beliefs that they are the center of attention and the most crucial person in the room.
