1) Think EVERYTHING is about them
2) See other people as all good or all bad
When an enemy refuses to give a narc something, the narc compulsively thinks:
“That person is bad, so the thing they won’t give me must be good.”
Narcissists truly can’t process that sometimes the other person’s reasons have nothing to do with them...
Anyone who has ever been through a custody dispute with a narc can tell ya abt this phenomenon.
“If ya won’t give me custody, I want it even more - even though I really don’t.”
Trump compulsively assumes any info they won’t give him MUST be valuable and helpful to him... and is only being held back to hurt him.
He is incapable of processing that the FBI might just be shielding a witness’ identity - because that reason doesn’t revolve around Trump.
It HAS to be about him. Who else exists?
They compulsively fixate on getting whatever enemies don’t want them to have - and they entirely ignore warnings that they won’t like the results if they “win”.
...and since that can’t possibly be their own fault, they then blame the people around them - as if others were somehow responsible for the narc refusing to listen.
The info Trump wants will actually be damaging. It will deepen his problems.
In his primitive, toddler mind, anything an enemy won’t give him must be super valuable though.
Trump truly can’t control his impulses. They control him.
Babyfingers will browbeat the FBI into revealing the info he compulsively wants...
...and then that info will prove hugely damaging to him.
Even then, he won’t get that he brought all of this on himself...
...and then he’ll rage on his inner circle.
