Episode 56: How Do Narcissists Manipulate People?

Dana Morningstar

Narcissists target people based on supply and in order to get that supply, they manipulate their vulnerabilities. They do this is in a wide variety of ways, most of which fall within the realm of what I call “I CHIVE” which stands for: Isolation, Charm, Hope, Intimidation, Violence, and Emotion. In order for us to prevent being manipulated, it’s really helpful if we know what manipulative behavior looks like in motion so we don’t keep getting sucked in by it.

…Towards the tail end of this podcast, I talk about the need for us to use logic and reason when interacting with someone and not go based off of our emotions. What I meant by this is to not go based off of the emotions that were being manipulated or the emotions of being blinded by our “love” for them. It’s important that we see their behavior for what it is and then respond accordingly.

I am a self-help junkie, former advocate for victims of domestic violence, current psychiatric RN, as well as being a recovering victim of Narcissistic abuse.

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.

Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.

It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.
