Cognitive Distortion: How (and Why) a Narcissist Twists Everything

Written by Angela Atkinson

In this video, I’ll explain how narcissists tend to fool themselves into believing their own lies and how this can cause extreme discomfort, drama and upset for the victims of their toxic abuse.

Narcissists have the utmost faith in their personal convictions, and they’re no less convinced of their own lies than “normal” people are of basic facts (the sky is blue, the grass is green).

Narcissists actually believe their own lies – and that is why they are so convincing.

For some especially charismatic narcs, that blind self-faith becomes pretty contagious. That’s because we’re programmed to only detect lies that are blatant – and since most narcissists actually BELIEVE their own bullshit, they can be very convincing. To them, their twisted perceptions have become real – so real, that they seem to be actual truth.
