Do narcisists know what they are doing ( why) in the devalue fase?

Hi, just curious..

I would like to know how is the internal experience of someone with NPD who is in the phase of devaluation.

Do you know what you are doing, or is there a rationalization of the facts?

Even after discovering that you have NPD, do you still continue with the cycle of love, devaluation and discard?

without emotions there is no intrinsic motivation towards cooperation (although there may still be extrinsic motivators for it). so without that drive towards cooperation then the serotonin ends up driving the behavior more and more towards narcissism. they are loners so just gang up on them with all the friends you made with your emotions. which is exactly what society does when the police force arrests them for crimes and locks them up. increasing power over others is weaker then increasing power with others.
