Narcissistic Stare

By Nancy Duarte Life Coach | Aug 31, 2023

A narcissistic stare is so intense and penetrating that it seems to consume all the attention and energy in its path. It draws you into the Narcissist’s world, leaving you floundering in a mire of self-obsession and manipulation. Behind those penetrative eyes is an insatiable need for dominance, control, and admiration. A narcissist uses eye contact to seduce and create a sense of intimacy, intimidate, or assert control if that stare is devoid of all emotion. Narcissists also gaze into the eyes of their victims when searching for clues or signs of their submission and admiration. Whatever the intent behind the Narcissist’s stare, it has an unsettling psychological effect on the recipient.
