When it comes to a narcissists arrogance, sometimes we can mistake this as confidence, and we can quickly be drawn in by their magnetic charm.
One thing we need to look out for to avoid getting in too deep with narcissists in the future is those larger than life characters full of charisma and charm. Only how do we know the difference between confidence and arrogance?
Confidence is a feeling of self-awareness within their own abilities, a willingness to raise others up, help others out, be happy for other people, often humble and kind, standing in their own truth without having to belittle others because they differ—acceptance of one’s abilities, as well as weaknesses, mistakes, flaws.
Arrogance is someone who is unpleasantly proud of who they are, can act superior to others or come across as impolite, offensive, as they believe they know more than those around them. They’re the most important person in the room.
Haughty is someone who blatantly proud of showing an attitude that they are better than others, whatever that personal attitude is to the individual narcissist. Acts as they are above others, vain, has to own the best home that they can afford or exploit from another, or the best clothes while talking badly of those around them.
Reds flags of arrogance are.
Someone trying to prove themselves superior to others.
Unpleasantly proud of themselves, often putting others down, to raise themselves up.
They cannot see their weaknesses.
They cannot see their own mistakes.
Refusal to admit fault.
Regularly breaks agreements.
Rarely to never saying sorry. “I’m sorry you.”
Argumentative with others, yet blames others for the argument.
Complains when things don’t go their way.
Pushy and loud.
Always wants to be in control, very demanding.
Points out others flaws.
Averse to criticism.
Always puts their needs before others.
Always observe when meeting new people, don’t absorb, take your time and make sure people’s words match their words, and their actions match to, listen to how they speak about others, those who talk badly of others to you will be talking to others about you. Stay in your truth, and don’t allow others to bring you down.
Hello, I’m Liz. I'm the slightly 🙄 dyslexic Blogger (So my grammar and punctuation aren't always the best.) who enjoys writing, and if I can overcome my fears and do it anyway, so can you. I have a YouTube channel which being dyslexic, my words are not always pronounced correctly, yet I still have some fantastic support from a fantastic community of survivors. If you want to do anything in life, half the battle is facing your fears and getting started. I am not a Doctor or a Councillor. I'm a mum and get the pleasure to raise five incredible boys. I'm a life coach. I’m a survivor of narcissistic abuse. I would like to raise as much awareness as possible about the Narcissist Personality Disorder, to give people more understanding of what they've been through, more knowledge so hopefully, people know the signs so don’t get involved in the first place, ways to get out safely, help with all the counter-parenting the narcissist throws in, help with whoever the narcissist is in your life, and most importantly recovery from narcissistic abuse, so you can move past it and have an incredible life that you do deserve.💜
