Narcissists use this emotional baiting to create chaos that will push their target into a corner. They want a reaction, so they can use it against us for ANY number of reasons and usually it is negative, but it can also be positive when they want/need something because they use it both ways. It is behavioral conditioning and CONTROL. Every action from a Narcissist has a manipulative motive to achieve something for THEMSELVES or again conditioning and CONTROL. Once we ‘get this’ then we can avoid connecting to their words and actions!
