What Is a Narcissist?

Meridian Peak Hypnosis helps clients who feel like they attract narcissist partners in their relationships. Our hypnosis practitioners work with clients in our offices or from anywhere worldwide via Internet sessions.

A narcissist is someone who has an excessively inflated feeling of their own significance and is obsessed with themselves. They frequently overstate their own qualities, skills, and accomplishments and may think they are better than other people. Narcissists would do anything to satisfy their unquenchable desire for other people’s adoration and attention.

They frequently lack empathy and may take advantage of people without feeling regret. Even though they can be endearing and charismatic, narcissists are infamous for being violent, controlling, and manipulative in their relationships.

Typical characteristics of narcissists include:

• Believing they are unique and special
• A feeling of entitlement
• Lack of empathy and consideration for others
• Needing constant adoration and attention
• Using others for their own advantage
• Having envy for others and thinking that others have envy for you
• Easily intimidated by criticism or perceived slights and having a fragile sense of self
• Inflating their abilities and accomplishments

It’s crucial to remember that narcissism is a spectrum condition, therefore not everyone who has some of these characteristics is inevitably diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder.

Attracting a Narcissist

Attracting a narcissist can happen unintentionally, as they can often be charming and charismatic, especially during the initial stages of a relationship. However, there are certain behaviors and characteristics that can make someone more vulnerable to attracting a narcissist:

• Low self-esteem: Narcissists are attracted to people with low self-esteem because they are easier to control and manipulate.
• Codependency: Narcissists seek out people who are willing to put their own needs aside and prioritize the narcissist’s needs instead.
• Empathic and caring nature: Narcissists may be drawn to people who have a strong sense of empathy and a desire to help others, as they can exploit this trait for their own benefit.
• Desire for excitement: Narcissists can be exciting and engaging during the early stages of a relationship, and people who crave excitement and novelty may be more susceptible to their charm.
• Lack of boundaries: Narcissists often have poor boundaries themselves and may be attracted to people who have similar issues with setting and enforcing boundaries.
• Desire for excitement: People who are drawn to novelty and excitement may be more susceptible to the charms of narcissists in the early stages of a relationship.
• Lack of limits: Narcissists frequently have weak boundaries themselves and may be drawn to those who also struggle to establish and uphold healthy boundaries.

None of these factors are a guarantee that someone will attract a narcissist, and that narcissists can be very skilled at hiding their true nature until they feel that they have control over their partner. The best way to protect oneself from a narcissist is to cultivate a strong sense of self-worth and to be aware of red flags in relationships, such as a partner who is overly controlling or lacks empathy for others.

Hypnosis Can Help You Break the Cycle of Attracting a Narcissist

Meridian Peak Hypnosis practitioners help you understand the reasons you might be susceptible to their charm and deception and taking action to create healthier relationship patterns are essential to breaking the loop of attracting narcissists. Our hypnosis practitioners help you to:

• Build/rebuild self-esteem: Narcissists are often attracted to people with low self-esteem, so it’s important to work on developing a positive sense of self-worth and confidence. Hypnosis is very effective at increasing self-esteem to keep narcissists away.
• Address codependency/increase independent nature: Narcissists can’t so easily attach themselves when codependency is low and independent thinking and behaviors are high. Hypnosis can help break codependent behavior not allowing narcissists not so easily in.
• Develop strong boundaries
: Narcissists often have poor boundaries themselves and may try to push past yours. By using hypnosis to develop and enforcing strong boundaries, you can protect yourself from being taken advantage of.
• Seek out healthy relationships: Surround yourself with people who are supportive, empathic, and respectful of your boundaries. This can help you break the cycle of being attracted to unhealthy relationships. Hypnosis can help you increase the value in healthy relationships and seek them out.
• Practice self-care: Taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally can help you build resilience and reduce your vulnerability to manipulation and control. Hypnosis helps increase the value of self-care to reduce/eliminate others defining and interfering with how you feel.
