Do narcissists get healed by rationalizing?

I read that you should ignore them and they have to come to a conclusion that they were wrong on their own terms. Is that correct?

It is not correct because someone who is narcissistic believes they are always right.

If you ignore the person, then their thinking is that there is something wrong with you.

Ignoring the person to the degree this is possible in the situation or relationship, will spare you to be misunderstood further.
