Do you believe narcissists should be engaged as if they were in touch with reality, or should they be ignored? On the one hand, I believe we should treat people in the best way possible rather than damning them to a complete lack of regular interaction, but on the other, it seems like there's really a point of no return, at least as long as they show no self-awareness of any kind. Also, before that point is reached, it seems like people usually say and do things they define themselves by for good or bad. I vote Ignore, at least after you know they're a narcissist. If they show genuine self-awareness, you can Engage again, but you should never be the one to initiate that since there are much better people out there than people who may or may not sincerely or insincerely become reasonably mature if prodded. What do you think?
