The Unheard Side of the Story on NPD

The comments are sad and revealing. I really think therapists should read some of them. See how they square with what the Ns are saying.

One author who has written very compellingly about emotional abuse as a result of "pretending" is Patricia Evans in her book on Controlling People. She writes that these people "pretend" as a way to control their environment, and will use whatever techniques they have at their disposal to coerce their target to play along, including emotional abuse.

And because emotional abuse is so hurtful, it is also very effective at getting immediate results, which unfortunately reinforces that method of controlling others in the mind of the abuser.

By the way, if I recall correctly, Patricia Evans does not have training in the mental health field. But I think her descriptions of emotional abuse really add to what is out there.
