We all know it happens so your thoughts ? are you the type of person to knock a narcissist back to reality and show them they're not as high and mighty as they think they are or do you just stay clear of them and let them have their ways?

Wow, good topic.

It's a fine line. I would LOVE to educate people who think they know it all, but wouldn't want to come off as being just like them.

I have, in the past, tried to have discussions and debates with people like that. If it happens that I start to get frustrated with them not even trying to listen to other points of view or if they are becoming belligerent towards others and treating them poorly, I may just have to walk away.

People like that aren't going to be reasoned with, since they feel they know best already. It isn't worth the fight, IMHO.

All that will happen is that the person trying to reason and be reasonable will get angry and whatever good vibes they had will be gone.

Karma will bite the other person at some point.

I put assholes who are condescending and insult other people back down to reality. I only put those people who think they are "intelligent" and much more sophisticated as compared to everyone else, in their place.

I dont like insulting and or putting people down. But i will take up my pen against people who insult and put others down. (Might sound a bit hypocritical, since i do the same thing, but i do it to the people victimizing others... but i try to picture myself as a less douche anti hero)

I was always the one getting put down. I always day dream of retorts that would bring them back down to earth but I was never brave enough to voice those retorts.

I have not seen someone "make fun" of someone in a long time (other than kids). But if I did see it I would call them out for being rude.

More often I hear people talk about others behind their back. This is constant, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. I do let people know that I'm not interested in gossip if they try to include me though.

I do it to real life friends just to be an asshole, but online to random strangers, nah. Though it doesn't stop me from getting into conflicts. I'm pretty combative and I really hate pompous people who put others down. There's a difference between being "real" (being constructive and honest with the intent of helping or educating) and just being a douchebag.

Thanks this topic was actually inspired by a comment someone made about the word "shipped" aka pairings in anime. The person went on to say people who use the word ship and the anime community have low IQs and that only a select few such as him are "smart". Normally I'd just brush something like that off but today was just not one of those days lol.

i've called it out on strangers & friends before, but i've also ignored it. guess it depends on how much it annoys me at the time lol.

yup this has happened, trying to pull someone like that down to earth and that person always just acts like what you're saying is idiotic and dumb

in my imagination though i always tear them down from their pedestals many a man has walked away crying

that's super annoying too. very prevalent in teenage girls unfortunately *sigh* i guess it's just that age. Though some people do really believe those things about themselves and no compliments ever make them feel better.

good topic OP ^^

I'm not a narcissist, but most of what other people say is completely irrelevant to me. Why the hell would I care about what you have to say unless that knowledge somehow benefits me? Normally I only gloat when I've done something worth gloating about, so to try and "put me in my place" would prove foolish as it can easily be deflected.
