What Makes a Narcissist PANIC and Lose Control

What makes a narcissist panic and lose control? Well, to begin with, it’s important to understand that, despite outward appearances, when we’re talking about people who land on the spectrum of destructive narcissism, we are talking about people who are, in reality, quite fragile, frightened, and insecure. Again, despite outward appearances, this is what’s going on beneath the surface, behind the mask, behind their phony facade, and all the performing they’ve got going on. They are completely shame and fear-based to their core, which is why they’re often such terrible bullies.

So, with all of that in mind, know that nothing terrifies a narcissist more and will send them into panic mode, and potentially even cause them to lose control, faster than the threat of exposure. Exposure is the threat of being found out for who and what they are. So, if you want to make a narcissist panic, point out flaws, shortcomings, inadequacies, and discrepancies. Like, for example, discrepancies in their story, present irrefutable proof or evidence.

Now, I’m not saying they’ll agree with what you’re saying or even acknowledge the irrefutable proof you’re presenting. But if you want to make a narcissist panic or barely squirm, shine the light of truth on all their nonsense. Again, the mere threat of being exposed for who they are will, without question, be the fastest way to send a narcissist into panic mode, and again, potentially cause them to lose control. There is nothing that will terrify a person with a destructive narcissistic personality pattern more than the prospect of being found out for the fraud that they are. The notion of them not having control over your perception of them or control over how others see and perceive them is a big problem for narcissists. In fact, few things are more destabilizing for someone who lands on the spectrum of destructive narcissism than not being able to manipulate or control how others see and perceive them.
