What Emotional Baiting Is And How Narcissistic People Use It


What Emotional Baiting Is And How Narcissistic People Use It

Emotional baiting – Baiting is when someone deliberately acts in a way so as to elicit either an angry or emotional response from the person that they’re interacting with. This is often used between two people where one wants to start an argument and uses baiting to do so.

Narcissistic people view their sense of worth and strength by playing with the emotions of other people.

These people, these kidults, see other people like toys and poke and prod at us to elicit negative emotions is how these people feel good about themselves.

The way they will emotionally bait someone is by:

  • Teasing
  • Accusing Us Of Doing Things
  • Provoking Us To Attack Them (Female Narcs Do This A lot)
  • Setting Us Up

Note: I have been published in a book called “Empathic Warriors Survival Stories“. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration feel free to give this book a read. 

What Emotional Baiting Is And How Narcissistic People Use It

Teasing

Emotional Baiting

They will say sly remarks about you and how you look or do things — and then say, “I’m only saying this because I care.”

Yea…they care about getting a reaction out of you!

Accusing Us Of Doing Things

Emotional Baiting

This is a classical emotional bait that many of these CLOWNS do. They will do something wrong, such as “cheating,” and then accuse us as if we are the ones who are cheating.

They cheat for many reasons in their minds, and because they are cheating for all their batsh*t insane reasons, they assume we are also doing the same thing.

So they will accuse us and ask us repeatedly if we are cheating on them, to try and break us down emotionally and psychologically.

Provoking Us To Attack Them

Emotional Baiting

Female narcissists are notorious for this one. They will egg a guy on to attack her — do everything and say anything just so that a guy can lash out and strike her so that she can feel like the victim.

I am not arguing it is okay to hit a female, but no real woman acts to provoke a guy to attack her.

Just as we say, “NO REAL MAN WOULD HIT A WOMAN”…NO REAL WOMAN WOULD ACT IN A WAY TO PROVOKE A MAN TO HIT HER.

Many of these narc females provoke guys by standing in front of the door as he leaves, keeping valuable stuff from him and then burning it or destroying it, or getting her brothers or cousins to come to fight the guy!

Narc females are JUST AS BAD AS NARC MALES.

Setting Us Up For Failure ~ Emotional Baiting

Emotional Baiting

Narcs will spend their time working day and night trying to get us to fail. In their small minds, if we fail, then they succeeded.

What sense does that make?

Narc Logic.

That’s the sense it makes!

Struggling With C-PTSD?

I often say that living with a narcissist is like living in a war zone! This comparison may very well seem hyperbolic, but research has shown that living around narcissists can have the same effects on a person’s mind as people living in a war zone!

I wrote an article describing the “10+ Mental Illnesses Caused By Staying With Narcissists“.

These people are monsters, plain and simple.

If you are struggling with emotional flashbacks, dealing with mental and emotional battles that NO ONE but yourself seems to see and feel, and if you find it hard to get out of bed every day, you may be dealing with C-PTSD.

As great as support groups may be, or as profound as articles can be, they are no substitute for professional help. 

Sometimes the best way to heal and move forward is with therapy.

Speaking with someone and getting the hurt off your chest is a great way to unload.

I call myself the Rational Humorist. Narcs to me are cancer to humanity. The only way to beat cancer is to fight back against it.

The best way to defeat a narc is to see them as the jokes they are.
