    Hey everyone. So I'm in a dysfunctional family with a tyrannical father, who has some narcissistic traits. So I know what it is like to be around a narcissist. So I wanted to ask, how can I stop having narcissistic qualities in me? Because I am writing this question, most probably I am not a narcissist. I am actually a HSP (I think so). So I'm quite empathetic. But we all have narcissistic qualities within us. So could anyone advice me how I can eliminate those?

    I'm about as narcissistic as it gets. I can't help you not to be a narcissist since I have no interest in losing this quality, but I can answer any questions you have if you like. As for empathy, it is a learned trait- even emotional empathy. I regularly practice it with some friends who help me better understand others' emotions so I can better manipulate them and remain undetected. It also helps me not push people to their limit of sanity or depression.


    If you wanna ask something, shoot a question and I will ^^

    I wouldn't want to be a narc cause chances are you'd be left alone in the end. my aunt is a narc and it's sad the condition in which she is now. no friends. eventually people figured out her manipulation tactics and i guess she herself couldnt stop it.

    How to stop being a narc... i dont think one can have a rulebook but there can be some guidelines of donts. i was a narc once. some things that i wish i had not done earlier:
    --dont be sarcastic and laugh at people all the time with snide remarks
    --when u see a red flag in a friendship, dont play some combat, that i'll betray you before you betray me. accept it and end the friendship.
    --dont make fun of others. laugh at others. i used to look down upon anyone and everyone. different race, different physical appearance. like i was a shallow person and was proud of it.

    I've developed the perfect counter to this. I think it's basically mandatory nowadays if you want to be a successful narc. There's quite a lot of things narcissists hold themselves back from by giving in to blind pride. That's just not how it works in this generation.
