Why does my husband think he is never wrong? He blames anything negative about him on someone else.

    I have a solution.

    Lets switch spouses.

    Narcissists tend to demonstrate a lack of interest in warm and caring interpersonal relationships. [Campbell and Forster (2007)[10]]. There are several ongoing controversies within narcissism literature, namely whether narcissism is healthy or unhealthy, a personality disorder, a discrete or continuous variable, defensive or offensive, the same across genders, the same across cultures, and changeable or unchangeable.

    Campbell and Foster (2007) argue that self-regulatory strategies are of paramount importance to understanding narcissism.[10] Self-regulation in narcissists involves such things as striving to make one’s self look and feel positive, special, successful and important. It comes in both intra-psychic, such as blaming a situation rather than self for failure, and interpersonal forms, such as using a relationship to serve one’s own self. Some differences in self-regulation between narcissists and non-narcissists can be seen with Campbell, Reeder, Sedikides & Elliot (2000)[16] who conducted a study with two experiments. In each experiment, participants took part in an achievement task, following which they were provided with false feedback; it was either bogus success or failure. The study found that both narcissists and non-narcissists self-enhanced, but non-narcissists showed more flexibility in doing so. Participants were measured on both a comparative and a non-comparative self-enhancement strategy. Both narcissists and non-narcissists employed the non-comparative strategy similarly; however, narcissists were found to be more self-serving with the comparative strategy, employing it far more than non-narcissists, suggesting a greater rigidity in their self-enhancement. When narcissists receive negative feedback that threatens the self, they self-enhance at all costs, but non-narcissists tend to have limits. I think this is what you husband got! please read and thanks for jjharlan for pointing this out

    See the question referring to Narcissism......


    thanks for pointing that out! xxx

    OH Lord its hard to be humble when you are perfect  in every way . I cant wait to look in the mirror ! I never get lonely cuz I treasure my own company . Find this song and play it a few times maybe it will get through . You can control little or nothing in life ,but you have absolute control over how you respond to things ,that is your power . People will be butt heads ,liars ,cheats , scum bags ,thieves ,and cheaters ,how you choose to deal with the garbage is the only power you have . The problem always lies with the person in the mirror and being lazy . Sure life has difficulties ,every stinking day ,but others would consider your problems a party nothing of any concern at all . Tell your husband I said to MAN UP  and stop bitching like a school boy and get busy !

    Don't have children, because your married to one. Your life is about him...He will resent the children if they are not perfect; then they are not his.

    An old running wind-up clock is rarely, if ever. accurate. I’m more like a stopped clock, accurate twice a day. A narcissist may think they are always right and must defend their position constantly. But when they stop and look back, they see the error of their ways were all about denial rather than stopping to savor their own folly. The acceptance of the potential for personal error is, for the narcissist, the beginning of the folly of wisdom. 

    Introduce him to my wife, 3 days they will both be in an asylum.. 

    These are the symptoms of a true democrat.  Your life is only going to get worse.


    Respectfully disagree. For a poor person to vote Republican ,is the same as a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders ( In case you don't know that's a big fried chicken food chain) "Kentucky Fried Chicken" LOL ! You are entitled to your belief ,even if it is misguided , In this matter you are correct it will most likely get worse . If a career in stand up comedy is in the future this will provide an abundance of material so maybe sticking around isn't a total loss. Bill

    Considering the question, i cant argue with you.

    Tell him he right sooner or latter he going too feel foolish, when he wake up, if he ever does?
