Why the Narcissist’s Lack of Empathy Concept is a Myth
Narcissists don’t lack empathy in the way we typically believe – they lack compassion, remorse, and regret.
We tend to confuse emotions like compassion with empathy, but as mentioned above, a person can understand what another person feels, thinks, and experiences without feeling the human emotions that go along with it.
That’s exactly why the narcissist’s lack of empathy concept is a farce – and a dangerous one at that.
It tends to let them off the hook for very hurtful behavior. The narcissist’s lack of empathy idea implies that their abusive behavior is completely unintentional.
In reality, it’s extremely manipulative and extremely intentional.
