  1. I have seen this with all the narcs ive been with…
    My mum…she will copy and mimic anything about my brother, his wife or his wifes family. His wifes family is well to do and both my mum and stepdad are very materialistic and try to act the part. They come off looking foolish bc they are middle class and are no where near what those people are in terms of social status or wealth. Its blatantly obvious they want desperately to be like them and fit in but they are still who they are and their copying comes off so phoney baloney.
    My stepdad….hes a midrange cerebral who is a bit of a follower yet very opinionated. If your opinion is strong and you dont back down he will agree with you lol ive tested this and made up some bs but stated it clearly and he agreed about it. He is easily impressionable and if he looks up to someone will mimic them.
    My narc…i see him pick up traits from sources ive never met but know hes in contact with. The election being a main example. He follows his facebook group and their rantings and behaviors. He goes thru phases based on who his favor is at the time.
    I love these three narcs but i do see the way they copy others bc of lack of their own substance. Deep down they arent good enough for themselves and have to become what they envy and want to be …at that moment. It changes.

  2. My boyfriend would listen (gather information) to me talk about politics or the economy sometimes and once, when we were at a social gathering, he was in a group of 5-6 people opining his political views. He was simply echoing my words to his audience. He acted like they were his own views and I was puzzled because he didn’t give a rat’s ass about the economy or politics.

    1. A bit related but id taken my daughter to her pediatrician the other day and we were discussing her narc friend and he seemed quite shocked that this friend had these traits of narcissism. I said well it starts from childhood and is a learned behaviour. Her mother is a somatic narc. He said that he thought 12 yrs old was too young to become a narcissist. This is a prime example how health professions even psychologists may not fully understand narcissism and its roots. I think adults can acquire narc traits but to become a full fledged narcissist means to not feel any empathy and that is formed mentally in the early years of childhood.

      1. Thank you for your thoughtful reply I asked hGod these questions because I truly fear I’m becoming a narcissist but according to his answers thank god I am not because I only developed these undesirable traits recently and I do have empathy for people but not everyone I think I’m becoming this way because of the narcs in my life

      2. Hi kim…you definitely dont strike me as a narcissist!! If you are even asking that question then you are not and the fact you have empathy attests to that 🙂

      3. Thanks I’ve had so many fears that I am one lol its good to know I’m probably not lol
