10 Sneaky Ways a Narcissist Will Try to Con You:
1. Irregular reinforcement
Narcissists use this as a means to keep you hanging on their side. For instance, they will sometimes be nice to you or give you a treat but that will happen fewer times than not. For the most part, you will not receive even so much as a small praise. When they do this they are keeping you attached as a means of waiting for a compliment.
2. Selective truth
The narcissist will only tell you what he or she wants to. They love to exaggerate things and speak in generalities. They do this because they want to con you into seeing things their way.
3. False flattery
The narcissist will give flattery to you from time to time, but not based off of who you are, simply based on what you can do for them. They will call you special, not because they care for you but because they can benefit from you.
