Using logic and facts during conflict with narcissists and borderlines doesn’t lead to mutual understanding and resolution. It has the opposite effect. Facts, logic reason and appeals to fairness only enrage the narcissist. Furthermore, the purpose of conflict with narcissistic and borderline individuals isn’t to resolve problems. The purpose of conflict is to provoke and emotional response in the target, which is then added the narcissist’s victim narrative.
