The Narcissist's Script
We've all seen children play "Pretend." Often one child really likes to take charge and direct the action, stamping her foot when the others don't pretend the way she wants them to, "No! You're not supposed to do THAT! You're supposed to do THIS!"
This is essentially what a narcissist does whenever you aren't playing along with his or her game of pretend. In it the narcissist is a god and you are bug. You must play the part. When you don't, narcissists get obnoxious to herd your behavior the direction they want.
Whenever you don't play the part of an insignificant bug compared to him or her. Whenever you act like their equal or like you deserve some consideration.
Translation: "No! You're not supposed to THAT!"
