Good article about the Narcissistic use of “Denial”, which is yet another Narcissist Trait and Red Flag to watch out for.
I recall one time being told “Why would I have said something like that?”, How does a “rational” person respond to someone denying something which they clearly said or did? They also do not blink their eyes when making their denial. Non-Narcissists will generally blink their eyes when they tell a lie.
Narcissistic people use denial as a brainwashing technique
