The Narcissist’s Army

 

 

THE NARCISSIST'SARMY

 

Whilst we consider ourselves omnipotent, mighty and all-conquering it remains the fact that we are unable to do much of what is required to gather our fuel, execute our machinations and exert control without the assistance of our supporters. These are the people that form the Narcissist’s Army. Gaining supporters is important to us and it is not difficult for us to do so. Much in the same way that we seduce the person who we install as a primary source of fuel, we seduce people to become our supporters. What does it take to become one of our supporters? You must provide fuel, that is paramount and something that we expect from all those who we recruit to be our supporters. Predictably enough however we want more than just fuel. We want your obedience, we want you to speak well of us to others and accept our views over those advanced by other people. We want you to provide us with character traits which we can purloin for ourselves and pass them off as our own to the rest of the world. We want you to carry out our orders. Not everybody that we recruit is able to carry out these requirements and therefore this results in us having different classifications of supporter.

Where do these supporters come from? When you first become entangled with our kind you will notice that we have family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances who think highly of us. There will be occasions when someone who appears to be a stranger will stop and say hello to us on the street. We receive particularly good service from a waitress who evidently knows who we are. Our supporters are drawn from everybody around us. They do not all have to be friends with us, many supporters remain in the ranks of acquaintances, colleagues and minions without ever advancing to the status of being an inner or outer circle friend, but for every category of proximity of supply of fuel that exists, those people are our supporters. There will be an impressive infrastructure of supporters in place when we first interact but it will not end there. We want your supporters to become our supporters. Of course, those who support you are your supporters for completely different reasons to our supporters. That does not matter. Your supporters will also be subjected to the charm, pleasantness, kindness and magnetism in order to draw them into our sphere of influence and anoint them as one of our supporters and to place them into the relevant category. We regard it as fundamental that we recruit your supporters to be ours. At first it is not a mutually exclusive arrangement. Indeed, since you are firmly in the golden period then it is easy for these people to support you and I. It is once the devaluation begins and especially when a smear campaign is launched that the value of your supporters to us becomes greater. It is then that those supporters show their true worth to my kind by altering the way that they deal with you and/or refusing to alter the way that they deal with us. We always aim to recruit from your ranks.

So, what are the categories that we classify these supporters into?

The Façade – I regularly make mention of how the maintenance of the façade is important. We want the world to think we are kind, wonderful, interesting, charming, generous and an all-round decent person. Those people who are assigned to the façade provide us with fuel and think well of us. The façade is supported by a cast array of people ranging from family, friends, colleagues all the way through to strangers. We want all your supporters to buy into this as well, as a minimum, so that when the time comes to devalue you, smear you and dis-engage from you, you find that you run into a wall of unimpeachable individuals who all believe that we would never hurt you, that we are decent and you must be making it up, exaggerating or taking things out of proportion.

The Coterie – this is our stable of highly visible supporters. They can be relied on to provide us with fuel, more often and to a greater degree than those who are in the façade. This group will contain people who can provide us with those character traits which we like to steal. They believe everything that we say and are very difficult to persuade that the façade is just an illusion. They will gladly do things for us but are not engaged to directly carry out our machinations against you. We do not regard their loyalty and blind obedience to be that great. However, if we ask them to tell the world how great we are, they will do so. If we want to borrow money, get a lift somewhere, have them pick up a parcel and so forth they will willingly do so. The coterie is a competitive place where its members vie against one another for our favour, in order to show that they get to spend longer with us, or time with us alone, or that we have praised them over someone else. The coterie can be relied on to always agree with us, disagree with you, laugh at our jokes, stand and listen to our anecdotes and marvel at our magnificence. The coterie will embrace you warmly when we begin our seduction of you but do not be fooled. None of them like you. They only pretend to do so in order to gain our favour. They are jealous because they want to be our favourite, they want to be the primary source. They do not know what a primary source is, in the same way that you don’t, but they want to be regarded in the same way as the way we regard you during the seduction. This promise of a more intense golden period to the one that they already enjoy keeps them in line. Imagine a royal court and these courtiers are always to hand, gossiping, scheming and pretending in order to gain some royal grace and favour from their monarch; us. When we give the signal this group of people will turn their backs on you, happily disseminate our propaganda about you and support our smearing of you.

Turncoat Coterie – this group is as the above Coterie but contains those people who were once your supporters. Initially the person is admitted to our coterie because they are content to support both you and I and during the golden period there is no difficulty. This person has been earmarked for the Turncoat Coterie because they naturally promote the façade but they want more. They often contact us and not you, they talk to us without you being around and as time progresses we ensure that their loyalty to us becomes greater than their loyalty to you. To put it in your parlance, they start off as one of your friends, become both our friends and then decide they want to be my friend rather than remain friends with you. This person’s status is never apparent until it is time for them to make a choice between you and I, which is usually around the time of a smear campaign and discard. They will not actively do anything against you, but they will promote our smear to others and turn their back on you when we decree that ought to be done. Not only do we revel in such a recruitment since it bolsters the number of our supporters, but it also means that you will be hurt by their treachery and this provides us with fuel and emphasises our power.

Lieutenants – the agents who believe what we say, remain loyal and will carry out our demands in order to retain our favour and receive other tokens of our appreciation and largesse. Our lieutenants are not only those who will provide us with fuel, carry out favours for us but they will actively assist us in our machinations. Whether it is finding out information about a prospective target before we engage, administering one of our devaluing manipulations by proxy or utilising the lieutenant in a hoover, these are the elite of our supporters. They may not number many in nature and they do not know what we are, other than they regard us as a brilliant and magnetic person who has also done right by them. We will have undertaken favours for them in order to secure their loyalty. We will also have some “dirt” on them as well which we will use to apply pressure if we have any concerns that their loyalty is wavering. The Lieutenant can be called on for fuel in times of emergency, to assist us in our smear campaigns, to gather information for us and to remain loyal. I like to keep one lieutenant that you do not know about so that he or she can be used with impunity often during a hoover. Unaware that this person is connected to me, your defences will be lowered and this will enable my lieutenant to acquire information from you and initiate contact for me to improve the prospects of the hoover succeeding. You may find that not long after you have escaped us that you are approached by someone who seems interested in you romantically. There is a good chance this person is a hitherto unknown Lieutenant of ours. Not only does this improve the hoover prospects but if you happen to succumb to it and later escape or evade it in the first place and realise that a Lieutenant was involved, this will cause you to remain anxious about anybody else who engages with your romantically. This causes you to struggle to move forward and find someone new who will distract you from thinking about us.

Turncoat Lieutenant –  the ultimate supporter. This person is a friend or family member of yours who you think that you can rely on and trust, but in actual fact they are loyal to me and not only that they are actively briefing against you. It is this person who enables me to acquire your new mobile telephone number after you have changed it post escape. It is this person who tells me where you have moved to, where you will be on a particular evening and who you are fraternising with in order to maximise my attempt to hoover you. This person will operate on our behalf so that during devaluation when you are seeking solace from them and trying to understand what is happening this Turncoat Lieutenant will be advancing reasons which support my position and undermine yours. You can expect them to tell you.

“Are you sure that is what really happened?”

“I think you are over-reacting to be honest.”

“Maybe if you tried x or y, he may calm down.”

“Well, is it any wonder, he works really hard, he is probably stressed.”

“That’s not something to worry about, trust me.”

“You are becoming fixated with something that isn’t a problem.”

“He does a lot for you you know, often you don’t know about it.”

“I find that hard to believe, he is always fine with me.”

“He wouldn’t mean that. I think you are seeing something which isn’t there.”

“Take it from me, I know he has your best interests at heart.”

If you start hearing comments which sound as if they could be uttered by my kind, you are most likely dealing with a Turncoat Lieutenant. Often this individual has fallen for the lies we have told about you and the charm we have sent in their direction. If this person is of the opposite sex (or same if we are of that particular sexual orientation) there is a good chance they are your replacement and the reward for their loyalty to us and betrayal of you, will be to replace you as our primary source and as our intimate partner. This person will advance any smears against you and also persuade others amongst your supporters that we are right and you are wrong, causing confusion and doubt. Their impact is significant and we always aim to recruit such a person. They will often remain undetected, waiting for when we need to activate them and then they will cause havoc in your camp, undermining you to others, turning people against you and having you doubt yourself. A Turncoat Lieutenant is a dangerous weapon once recruited by us.

  1. Hello, H.G.Tudor.
    I don’t know what happened with my comment about Ted Bundy, I didn’t upload it correctly.
    What do you think of this serial killer, in his final interview, explains the reasons for his actions and the surprising thing about everything is that he details with his words, bearing in mind that we are talking about it was executed in 1989 and by this date there was nothing written on this subject. His description, of the process is totally terrifying, he talks about emptiness, his compulsion, his addiction to sex and alcohol, in the film in Netflix you see his seduction, his facade, his excuses to spend time fura, his double life, his triangulations, his Ipps, Niss, his lieutenants.
    The film was so real, with the life of an IPPS victim and so devastating, that it just needed to be a serial my narcissist. In his interview he said that he became addicted to pornography and that his addiction grew until it could no longer be mastered. His biography fits perfectly with a somatic narcissist. Attractive and seductive, sentimental rejection, he never finished anything and his work lasted a short time etc. He said that he lived or was always in the limit. And although he was aware of what was right and wrong, his impulse for energy moved him to do so until it returned to its normal state.
    Our narcissists, who are not aware of their problems, the same things happen to them and I wonder. You think it’s only a matter of time before these people can step up and jump the line. He gets to talk about this, in short, to cross all limits because of his sense of right.
    Go from an average Somatic type narcissist to one of the greatest serial killers in history.
    I know that not all narcissists are, nor will they be murderers, much less serial killers. But if this may become possible because of this type of disorder.

    The movie on Netflix and documentaries I think is highly recommended to watch. Without considering the part of their crimes. It was so familiar, seduction, the golden age, its double seductive life, its façade, its triangulations, etc..
    As his IPPS is destroyed by his manipulations and mistreatments, the emotional thought. The lieutenants Everything is reflected in this movie also made.
    His last interview, has no waste, emptiness, their addictions, the need for fuel, the monster, their consciousness etc..
    Simply to see these films and many concepts of the narcissistic theme if it is rationally analyzed sees them so clearly, so evident.
    Simply so recommendable to see and analyze and understand that this is how I do it.
    When you realize, that we have fallen with people like Ted Bundy, is to think twice the fact of wanting or continuing to maintain some mole of contact with these people. They take away your mental nonsense in two seconds.

        1. Dearest H.G. I was asking J.G, if he saw the 2002 Ted Bundy film, not H.G., if your `no` was directed at me. it is shocking, though.

      1. No, I haven’t seen her. I have to see her.
        But I recommend Netflix’s is brutal, because you see all the manipulations triangulations, seductions, façade we all go. He was a narcissistic Somatic. In his last interview he gave the day before his execution is also brutal, because it tells and narrates why, the fuel he calls energy, emptiness, his addictions to sex and alcohol. It is to consider his last words and reflections.
        I recommend everyone who can see it to do it. Simply brutal, if you focus more on his wife than on the whole narcissistic and hooking process. I felt so reflected.

        1. J.G. I just watched the 2002 version on youtube. And a documentary and I read Wikipedia. I will wait until or if you watch the 2002 version to see if you think I should still watch the Netflix version. I do not have Netflix, so I would have to sign up to watch. Tell me later if you think I need to add the Netflix version after you watch the 2002. Maybe, I have seen enough. I only remember Ted Bundy as a serial killer of women. I had no idea that it was so horrific. So many women were in love with him while he was in prison. I remember that as well. But, that happens a lot with serial killers. They have a lot of fans and a large following. And, I guess the better looking they are, their fandom increases for them. Many people felt desolate when Charles Manson died, as well. Maybe I should watch some films about him as well. And Son of Sam. And Jeffrey Dahmer…and the list probably never ends… It is amazing how much one can review history with the internet. I never knew so much about the horrors of Ted Bundy. I kept seeing his name mentioned on this site, and when one reader had Bundy as his Avatar on here of late, that was it. I had to investigate. What a guy that Ted Bundy was!!

    1. J.G. Did you read the Wikipedia works on Ted Bundy? You may find it interesting. In a documentary and on Wikipedia, they both state that he escalated when his first girlfriend of a wealthy background that he was impressed by, rejected him for not having enough ambition it is said. This was not developed in the 2002 movie. He later won her back, after he made a few accomplishments, just to drop her, he said to prove to himself that he could have her after all. And then he gaslighted her and never spoke to her again, to her disbelief. He discarded her after she accepted his marriage proposal. What a hoover and discard!

      1. Hello PrincessSuperEmpath
        if you know of these events with your first love or rich girlfriend. I saw him in a documentary and if he was rejected and then he began to study law and entered politics, when he managed to create a more stable and ambitious facade. He rejected his old girlfriend and never saw her again.
        Pure escape, hoover, discard and silent treatment.

        1. Hello PrincessSuperEmpath
          I haven’t even been there 25 minutes and this movie is even more brutal when I got it dubbed in Spanish. The Netflix film is more focused since the IPPS LISS victim.

          1. J.G. I know! I can not believe that movie is so explicit. It must have been heavily edited for TV or cable!!!

  2. Dearest HG: Since the Narcissist at my job has ensnared my friend as his NIPSS, for the months that I have been away, going on about 3 months now and counting, is she now a Turncoat Lieutenant? She has texted me around thrice since I have been away, and last week she texted me and she was upset that I did not return the first week of May, like I gave her as an estimate, in April, and she told me that I made her look bad, by not coming back when I told her. I just told her I am still sick and waiting for good weather of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit for my lungs, (sounds like a good temperature for my excuse of being out), because I have a lung infection (not true). I really have a case of the UNBELIEVABLE over all I have learned I have been dealing with for over 3 years, and I know my disbelief is in my eyes as a tell. I can feel it. So, I have been waiting until I know that my eyes will not show what I know about the Narcissist and his lieutenants and now possibly my friend in the company. And I can look at them all in a friendly manner, without the tell showing. The tell is in my eyes and I can feel it. It it has lasted longer than I expected. But, it is finally reducing. I hope you know what I mean: by the tell in my eyes. HG, do you think my friend may be a Turncoat Lieutenant now?

      1. Dearest HG: It is all so Unbelievable. I am glad she looked bad. I never required her to give reports or updates on me. She took on that role for whatever reason. Now, she is getting a non-glamourous glimpse of Narcville. It is no paradise. Good. The tell has just risen in my eyes a bit more. I need more time away from them all. Maybe I will go back the end of May or the beginning of June. Taking time away is helping me tremendously. I am alone in this and I come first, with me. No worries: They have each other. Thank you.
