Code-Switching (Narcissistic)

The practice of a Narcissist changing their vernacular, behavior, or treatment of their Target in public or in front of those he/she wants to impress to appear kind, supportive, and loving. This Code-Switching confuses the Target and causes Cognitive Dissonance because the “public” behavior mirrors the Grooming (Love Bombing) treatment and is what they’ve wanted to return to stabilize the relationship.
