Narcissistic Filibuster: When a Narcissist Won’t Shut Up (The Opposite of the Silent Treatment)

Written by Angela Atkinson


What do you do when a narcissist gets you into an hours-long “discussion” meant to manipulate you into doing what they want
or into keeping your thoughts to yourself about something they have done wrong. I call this a narcissistic filibuster. It’s sort of the opposite of the silent treatment. This video is in response to a viewer named Kate, who said:

“I don’t get the cold shoulder or being ignored. I get hours, and hours of being talked to. It almost feels like I’m being preached to. At one point, he talked for 5 HOURS NON STOP! I now, to try and avoid it, I act like I’m asleep. Sometimes it works… Do you have any insight on this situation? Thanks.”
