5 Signs to Spot a Narcissist in Conversation


Narcissists behave strangely in conversations, giving us a chance to spot them quite early on. They treat you in ways that make you feel insignificant, like you don’t know anything, or like a fool. In this article, we will explore and learn about five signs to spot a narcissist in a conversation.

They Keep Interrupting You

One of the first signs is that they keep interrupting you during a conversation. Here’s a small disclaimer before I explain this point further: people with ADHD and dyslexia may also display this kind of behavior, which does not make them narcissists. They do it because they’re hyperactive; it’s like having multiple tabs open at once, running in a hundred different directions simultaneously. Their intention is not to abuse or humiliate you. When assessing a person, I would like you to look at the bigger picture. A narcissist will keep interrupting you during a conversation because they like to talk at you, not to you. They cannot let you have control; they have to be the one talking all the time, especially when the topic isn’t about them. If it’s a covert narcissist, they will interrupt disrespectfully, start talking, and go on and on without giving you a chance to form a coherent speech. They mess up your thoughts, leave you confused, and make you feel like you don’t know much about the topic.
