I'm not great at putting people like that in their place, so I don't bother trying. I just ignore them.

Honestly I just stay out of it if I can, but at the same time I don't take anyone's crap either. I knock them down a peg or two if I really have to.

...so you're basically saying for them to become narcissistic. Plenty of people genuinely hate their writing/art/music etc...I for one am critical over my own writing and art and have a deep dislike for it, but that doesn't mean I go looking for compliments either. For the ones who really dislike their own work compliments just bounce off. The saying: "You are your own worst critic" does apply for some.

One thing that I've learned in these 28 Years I've been on this Planet, is that Human Beings are going to do what they want to do, regardless of whether You are trying to "put a speed bump" in the way of their actions or not. While of course I can't stand it, and I absolutely despise a Bully, one who is not willing to put any effort into changing their ways at all...I just let them do as they want. I try to stay focused on Myself and the things that I personally have going on in My life. Now if this was Someone who actually WANTED; TRULY WANTED to put some weight into changing their ways, then that would be different. I'd be glad to help. But someone like that who has no interest - Just stay the Heck away from Me. Though if I see You Bullying someone else, You're darned right I would make an effort to intervene. Not for the Bully of course, but for the Victim.

After a while I realise that those who attempt to put others down are trying to make themselfs look cool.
I realise this isn't always the best approach but I tend to not raise any fists and I say silent or speak my mind, if any conflict occurs it's not my doing it's the other person, in order for them to succeed I must fight back however I won't do this because that would lead to my downfall in the end.
I'll take any hits towards me (or most likely flinch in cower) and if I succeed with that and not attack the enemy will stop and walk away meaning that he now looks like an idiot for attacking someone who doesn't deserve it.
Fortunately this doesn't happen often but sure enough it does happen sometimes I just do the method on top and I'm never in the wrong.
Of course though that was physical violence and there was nothing verbal to it.
For verbal abuse I tend to ask why they're doing it, whatever answer they give I say carry on, I have no time to deal with people like that so I don't care what they do to my name or honor.
Sure there's now lies spread around about me but that's just what's going to happen you can't do anything about that, and everyone who spreads that around has no right too, so I couldn't care less what they say about me.
It's only if whatever they say concerns someone else I'll get defensive and stand the other guys ground which luckily I have only expirienced twice in my lifetime, probably more than that that I can't remember.

Just the thing to do when you are so worthless that your mother should have aborted you.

I'm not a narcissist however if I do see someone acting high and mighty then I don't care. If they are hurting someone then that's a different issue. I'm willing to call them out and ask them to stop. Heck, even asking a reason why are they doing so.

Besides, isn't one acting high and might themselves if they putting those "in their place"?

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.


Spoken like a true genius. I vote for this man as the next new top philosopher.

No I mean the people who actually do say negative things just to hear people say no you are pretty or no way your art is awesome kind of thing.

Knowing how and when to defensively "put people down" is a very important skill imo (for a guy at least). If you bite back too often or not enough, you unavoidably become a bit of a punching bag/joke.

I almost forgot you were a retard.

I made you. Of course I know what you are and what you seek.

No it wasn't. But you're forgiven. Always and completely forgiven.

I see no need to put other people down unless they need it. My girlfriend will sometimes do so to help motivate me, but rarely lol.

In the case of "knock[ing] a narcissist back to reality," there is also no need for that either. Reality will hit them eventually.

Haha why would I care what other people think of themselves? I remain neutral. I don't usually compliment or put people down. And if I do say something good about somebody, I'll have something bad to say about them too, and vice versa. It's not my job to babysit your ego. Live with it.
