How to Deal With Impossible People
We all know impossible people. They tend to share three main characteristics:
They cannot be reasoned with,
they believe they can do no wrong,
and they are convinced that everything is someone else's fault.
Such kind of people even after a brief conversation can raise your blood pressure through the roof.
These people may also be known to some as narcissists.
Insights and steps for dealing with these highly difficult people
Recognize that impossible people exist; you will eventually encounter them. There isn't a thing you can do about it.
Be aware that some people simply aren't compatible.
Sometimes, a person who gets along with everybody else quite well is an impossible person for you personally.
Understand that it's not you, it's them. This can be surprisingly difficult, considering that impossible people have complete mastery of blaming skills.
Realize that you cannot deal with impossible people the same way you deal with everyone else. Give up all hope of engaging these folks in any kind of reasonable conversation.
Protect your self-esteem.
If you have regular dealings with someone who tries to portray you as the source of all evil, you need to take active steps to maintain a positive self-image. Remind yourself that this person's opinion is not necessarily the truth.
