Simultaneously, people who are delusional hear only what they want to hear, twist the words of others, put words in other people’s mouths, and lie to more than themselves. Anything to not threaten the reality they want — *need* — to believe because the truth is not the truth they want. Don’t bother with trying to get it out of them, or convince them of it, because it’s no use. They’ve fooled themselves, so they honestly believe they can fool you, too. These people will find people they can manipulate into believing they are what they say they are. It’s for self-preservation that people become deluded, so whoever challenges that will be seen as a direct threat. Hopefully when you encounter this kind of personality type/disorder you are in the position to move along or keep at a healthy distance.
