Narcissist's Routines

Everything you Need to Know about Narcissists, Psychopaths, and Abuse – click on this link: www.narcissistic-abuse.com The behaviour of the narcissist is regulated by a series of routines developed by rote learning and by repetitive patterns of experience. The narcissist finds change extremely distasteful and unsettling. He is a creature of habit. The function of these routines is to reduce his anxiety by transforming a hostile and arbitrary world into a hospitable and manageable one. Granted, many narcissists are unstable – they often change jobs, apartments, spouses, and vocations. But even these changes are predictable. The narcissistic personality is disorganized – but also rigid. The narcissist finds solace in certainty, in recurrence, in the familiar and the anticipated. It balances his inner precariousness and volatility. Narcissists often strike their interlocutors as “machine-like”, “artificial”, “fake”, “forced”, “insincere”, or “spurious”. This is because even the narcissist’s ostensibly spontaneous behaviours are either planned or automatic. The narcissist is continuously preoccupied with his Narcissistic Supply – how to secure its sources and the next dose. This preoccupation restricts the narcissist’s attention span. As a result, he often appears to be aloof, absent-minded, and uninterested in other people, in events around him, and in abstract ideas – unless, of course, they have a direct bearing on his Narcissistic Supply. The narcissist develops some of

  1. it can help a bit.for more severe obsessions/delusions but the person must be willing to battle his fears and see that absolutely nothing has changed.But the person must be willing to observethis and not be caught up in fear.

  2. Helpful video.

  8. learned alot, thanks!

  9. great vid. thanks

  10. Hi Sam, thank you so much for posting these video’s. You are doing truly good work by sharing these.

  11. use a different microphone dammit.

    the scratching make your videos unwatchable

  12. lets say intuition exists. is it the same as narcissism?

  13. rule #1 don’t complain or blame things, and it is ok to have routines

  14. There is a TEDX talk that talks about this subject. It was done by a woman who wrote crazy love. and it isn’t love, per say. It is something called Traumatic bonding. Sam V. talks about it also. Watch that talk! I will message you with it linked.

  15. This is exactly how my Dad is.

  16. You can love him but not his behaviour. Sometimes you can love each other but you just can’t live together, it doesn’t work. His behaviour whether from a disorder or just bad upbringing is unacceptable for you, your soul is in shock as his set of values is so different from your own, you can’t comprehend it,so you let it go, but it nags at you… Love him from a distance, cut him off completely, and visualise something more beautiful and normal for yourself 🙂

  17. You have such a good attitude, stay positive and enjoy your freedom, it is so liberating to find out why they behaved so strangely. Sam is incredible in what he is doing.

  18. Cheers!
    

  19. Watch the video “Narcissist: Stable Life, or Roller Coaster” on this channel.

  20. Don’t fully agree w/what was said in the beginning- about narcissist moving around. The narc. guy who I was with stayed in same council flat for over 25 yrs & never moved – never wished to put any effort into holding a mortgage, getting a nice place or advancing himself- had all his exes as suppliers so he wished to keep that world & maintain it w/them – rigorous esp. about what he did from Nov. to Feb.- hibernated yearly during that period. Everything else said appears right on..

  30. I am a student of Psychology and am trying to differentiate between NPD and APD. As I understand it, APD often has parts of NPD, (as well as borderline), but after hearing your descriptions, and watching the documentary you were interviewed in, I suddenly can’t tell the difference between them Can you please explain the separation between these? Your information is very good.

  31. In some cultures you never abandon your parents, esp. if one of them is victim of narcissist. So, I don’t really need my father for anything but have to keep in touch with him because he is my father & my poor mother has to live with him. There.
