A narcissist is the opposite of an empath. the shield of an empath can be raised to take offense to a narcissist, but an empath is usually better aware of their defensive abilities and scarcely aware that they can agress.
a narcissist will say "are you crazy? do you like pain?" to pin the blame on sensitivity.
sensitivity doesn't mean liking pain but rather not running and hiding from pain only to be found by it later. refusing to play hide and go seek with pain. seeking rather to resolve it and send it back to where it comes from. ending the game once and for all.
this is the behavior of a man with a sensitive heart:
he would sense her emotions even without words and tell her things like, "when i am gone away, don't be lonely, i'll return." they had talks about the difficult emotions and felt the peace of release. his hand was always warm as it held hers. his gaze was always warm as it held hers.
at night, when she came in from the cold outside and came into bed by his side to rest, he stirred and said, "you're so cold." he covered her leg with his. he gently tucked his arm under her and the other over her, and pulled her body tightly close to him. he felt that even her stomach felt cold and placed his hand there. he covered her with his body and the blankets. he did not shy away from her cold and they were warm together.
