    Some helpful information:

    Recent psychopathy research suggests that psychopathic individual’s don’t learn from punishment cues. They are more reward-driven. They basically are thinking more about what they can gain from a situation thn the consequences.

    Bottom line – psychopaths process punishment differently.

    Ha ha ha ha ha… aside from the usual gas lighting, lying, manipulation, projection and all that other bullshit, they all make mistakes and repeat them over and over again (probably for fuel); like that movie Groundhog Day. Narcs are some of the dumbest people that I know and I usually tell them in no uncertain terms how fucking stupid they are (fuel free or course) and then I get to see their dumb/confused face. It is so much fun to piss them off!

    Never accountable! In a shared psychologist session with my mother which she set up the psychologist asked her to share an example of a time she made a mistake or regretted something she had done. It took an hour, the whole session and she kept saying “i look at the posiives in life and dont dwell on the negatives”. The psychologist was so frusterated and we never went back. Looking back now i know why the psychologist asked this particular question it was bc she suspected my mother was a narcissist. Ive come across many resources that say if you want to see if someones a narc to ask this and it makes sense.
    I really believe my mother cant admit to fault or mistakes. Its that altered way of thinking that doesnt align with reality. Avoid the ugly truths and focus on what youd rather focus on. In her case i can see where it stems from. An abusive narc mother, cheating husband and her newborn baby boy dying. It doesnt make it easier for me but i can see why shes put up walls of protection. This however doesnt allow for inter growth of a person. Thats why many narcs are stunted in their personal emotional development.
