Have you ever met a person who seemed like the kindest person alive?
They immediately left a powerful impression on you, making you eager for more. They fed your curiosity with their own convenient stories, igniting strong feelings of attraction in you.
But, after a certain period of time, you realized that there’s something strange about them. They simply cannot be friends with everyone. Their kindness is just a way to disguise their true, vile intentions.
Oh, how the world is full of these tricksters.
A wise man called Aristotle once said, “A friend to all is a friend to none.”
So, here are 6 signs that a seemingly nice person secretly has vile intentions:
1. THEY AROUSE NEGATIVE FEELINGS
This is the easiest way to spot whether a person is toxic for you being or their nature suits you. If someone makes you feel emotionally drained, exhausted and triggers negative emotions inside your heart, you’ve come across an emotional leech. These people will use you to get what they want. Stay away!
2. THEY BEHAVE DEMANDING
Remember, a person who seems nice but surprises with their manipulative behavior is not a nice person. Don’t judge a book by its covers. If you notice a slightly odd, demanding behavior, beware. You might be in a presence of a control freak. Don’t let them dominate you!
3. THEY ARE THE MASTERS OF BODY LANGUAGE
It’s important to know that these tricksters are masters of body language and eye contact. They can study your behavior long before they meet you, they can read your body language and get everything they desire. You won’t be aware of their manipulative game, because they’ll have you figured out before you know it.
4. THEY ARE HIGHLY PERSUASIVE
Have you heard the term smooth-operator? Well, these people fit the description, perfectly. Their alluring charisma and irresistible persona will help them persuade you to do the things you don’t personally enjoy. You will be surprised at how ‘open to new adventures’ you are with them, when in reality they’ll only see you as their disposable puppet.
5. THEY USE OFFENSIVE HUMOR
What seems like a silly and innocent joke, it’s really their highly offensive and hurtful humor. They use it as a defense mechanism. Whenever their insecurities start to scream, they use insults and put-downs by “making fun” of you. It’s sick, but it actually thrills them, and it gives them the feeling that they’re in control of the situation.
6. EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS ABOUT THEM
Whenever you start a conversation with these people, you’ll notice that it all comes down to them. Every discussion, every idea, every expressed thought must always be involved with them.
You can try to talk about them, but they’ll always find a way to manipulate the conversation and make you less important.
