Wow! Narcissist –
If you really want a gold piece of jewelry, tell the Narcissist that you are highly allergic to gold. This way, you’ll definitely get a piece of gold jewelry for your birthday. If you want red earrings, tell him/her you have a phobia of red earrings. Bingo! You’ll surely get those red earrings for Christmas, or maybe even as an out-of-the-blue, “just because I love ya” gift.
If you suspect you are dealing with a Narcissist, tell him/her something vulnerable about yourself, but off-the-wall, such as, “I’ve got this horrible, pervasive fear that after I die, Green Gremlins are going to eat up my body!” Then when he/she discards you, you’ll likely hear from the Narcissist, “By the way, I know for a fact that after you die, Green Gremlins are gonna eat up your body. I have scientific research to prove it!”.
If your favorite color is peach, let the Narcissist know how much you despise the color peach, this way you might get a freshly painted bedroom, living room, or work office in peach color. If fact, the Narcissist might very well go out of his/her own way to do that paint job all by himself/herself (even without bribing the neighbor’s 13-year-old son to paint the entire 1,500 sq ft area for a 6-pack of beer).
Anyway, I’m not advocating lying, I’m just making a point.
