Dealing With Narcissists – Fact Check Everything

.

Proverbs 14.15 – “The naive believes everything, But the sensible man considers his steps.”

.

Proverbs 18.17 – “The first to plead his case seems right, Until another comes and examines him.”

.

Matthew 18.16 – “so that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every fact may be confirmed.”

.

2 Corinthians 13.1 – “This is the third time I am coming to you. Every fact is to be confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses.”

.

1 Timothy 5.19 – “Do not receive an accusation against an elder except on the basis of two or three witnesses.”

.

Narcissists / those with insolent pride tend to exaggerate their skills, accomplishments, track record, commitment to the cause, etc.   They also will stretch the truth or outright lie in order to get what they want.   And they do not hesitate to trash the reputation of those who get in their way.  So while this basic biblical principle of confirming things instead of believing every thing you are told is always appropriate – it is especially applicable when dealing with narcissists.
