They ( Narcissist) become paranoid and fear that others are out to attack them if they do not tolerate their abusive rages or if they are confronted with their own dishonesty. They take the resulting avoidance of themselves as an indication of hostile motives.



The above para describes something about particular traits of a Narcissist . Kindly explain..


1) Who is not tolerating whose abusive rages?

2) Who is to confront with whose dishonesty?

3)what does it mean by "They take the resulting avoidance of themselves as an indication of hostile motives"


Kindly answer me I shall be grateful for your kindness

Thank you

Perhaps this will help:

1. Who is not tolerating whose abusive rages? Answer: the "others", i.e., other people, whoever they might be, if those others do not tolerate their (i.e., the narcissists') abusive rages.

2. Who is to confront whose dishonesty? Answer: the "others", as above, are to confront the narcissists with their (the narcissists') own dishonesty.

3. What is meant by "They take the resulting avoidance of themselves as an indication of hostile motives". Answer: they (the narcissists) take the fact that others (as above) avoid them (the narcissists) as an indication of hostile motives on the part of those others toward the narcissist(s).

They and themselves in the 3rd question is still ambiguous...

That's why my response to #3 was long and complicated: I wanted to remove the ambiguity.

The root problem with this text is the "pronoun soup" it contains. The text makes reference to 2 separate parties -- the narcissists, and the targets of the narcissists. Both are simply referred to as "they". This is the problem that needs to be corrected.

Would you please replace the "Pronoun soup", (they) and modify the para.
