I have a friend who is a really cool guy in most cases, but he has one problem. He directs almost everything in a conversation to himself.

Example: I wrote a song that I was proud of and posted it as a note on Facebook. And he commented on it, but instead of saying "Good job" or anything complimentary, he just says "You should read some of my songs and comment em :P"

Granted, that's not the end of the world, but he has that habit of changing a conversation to be about himself, even if someone is telling him about a problem they're having.

Should I just tell him he does this outright, or should I wait and see if he stops, or what?

You've clearly never read any Confuscius.

As I wait on the edge of the earth,
I can see the walls being torn down again
Only to be rebuilt in another name,

Tell him about it.

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

This. It'd be pretty hard for him to make to conversation about himself when it already is about him.

Just tell him. Narcissistic people often aren't aware of it.

Redirect the conversation back at yourself, then eat some pie.


I like this.

But seriously I'll probably just tell him.

Jizz in his socks. Only then will he know it's really all about goo.


Just tell him.

You should be careful what you say. Some asshole will probably sig it.

Obviously you should start the conversation about him. Then eventually with reverse psychology he will never talk about himself!
I let you get away so cleanly.

Take everything he says about himself and swap it around so it's then about you. Twist what he says into something very similar, or the complete opposite.

"I had pie last night."
"Awesome, I didn't have any pie last night."

"I hate that guy. He always pisses in my shoes."
"I pissed in somebody's shoes once."
"I hope they weren't my shoes."
"Maybe. They certainly weren't MY shoes, so it's all good."

etc.
You're = You are
Your = Belongs to you

There = Not here
Their = Belongs to them
They're = They are
Thx.

Gotta love that

Just have him sit down, hand him a beer. After her has had a few beers, tell him about his "issue".
But don't be an ass about it. Try to at least fake genuine concern.

I have problems like that too, but I redirect the conversation to something other than the person I'm talking to. My self-confidence is too low to direct it towards myself, buut I highly dislike talking about the person I'm talking to.

I suggest telling him straight out.
