Psychopaths, narcissists, sociopaths, manipulative individuals are all social predators or in other words, sneaky chameleons who know exactly what to do in order to get everything they desire.
They transform into the perfect listeners, the most loving partners, the insatiable lovers, the best of friends to fit perfectly into any situation. They have thousands of identities, each and every one of them suitable for a different occasion.
However, once their true colors eventually pop out you’ll finally realize that they weren’t the person they convinced you of.
Here are 8 positive signs that you are wasting your time arguing with a narcissistic, manipulative psycho and it is time to finally disengage and let go:
1. THEY LIE AND MAKE THE WORST EXCUSES
Okay, we all make stupid excuses and tell white lies every once in a while, but narcissists and manipulative sociopaths tend to recite them as poetry. They always say one thing and end up doing something completely different. So, watch out for this one!
2. THEY HAVE MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES
These people have multiple identities inside of them and use them as a proper disguise for every occasion. If you try to distance yourself, they’ll start apologizing, if you attack them, they’ll become a merciless monster, if you blame them, you are suddenly crazy.
If you’ve noticed this behavior in a person, disengage immediately.
3. THEY HAVE A CONDESCENDING APPROACH AND PATRONIZING TONE
Emotional psychopaths will always consider themselves superior to you. They will maintain a cool, calm collected exterior, but all the while they will subtly provoke to force an explosive reaction.
They know exactly what to do to put the blame on you and make you crazy.
4. THEY ARE THE ETERNAL VICTIM
It doesn’t matter what they did to you, because somehow, they will always make the fight about themselves. Even if they’ve hurt you, they will find a way to turn away the conversation and remind you of their painful past when heir partner treated them as a victim.
This is inevitable. It is one of their best defensive mechanisms. Just try not to let them fool you.
5. THEY ARE THE ULTIMATE MOOD SHIFTERS
Because of their multiple, crazy personalities, these individuals tend to swing savagely back and forth between their moods until your mind is confused and you no longer know who you are talking to.
They will go all the way from flattery and seduction to distasteful insults, abuse and a sick, disturbing way of manipulating your mind.
6. THEY HAVE A DISTURBING LACK OF EMPATHY
Manipulative sociopaths, emotional psychopaths, and narcissists also share another crucial trait. They have no empathy whatsoever. They have no sense of compassion, kindness or solidarity.
It’s either their way or no way at all.
7. THEY WILL NEVER ACCEPT A POINT WELL MADE THAT GOES AGAINST THEIR WORD
And no, it doesn’t matter how well-structured and proved your argument is, you’ll never be able to convince a psychopath to believe you.
No matter how stupid and unreasonable it may be, it is always their word against yours. So, let me tell you something. Don’t waste your time around these people. You will never win their fight.
8. THEY HAVE A WEIRD, UNREALISTIC VIEW OF REALITY
They live inside their own delusional, crazy bubble. What’s normal to them is probably, freaky, wicked and disturbing to another human being.
