Found this very interesting as tons of people have asked me over the years why this person has lied and scammed them.
Here is an interesting example:
An Opportunist Psychopath Never Misses a Chance to Use the Pity Ploy
psychopath also can’t spell which is an inconvenience sometimes. He
said he was dyslexic, so people felt sorry for him and tried to help him
with any writing or testing he was required to do. But the real test,
was ontheir boundaries of responsibility. How far
would they go for a dyslexic friend who is just trying to get his
pilot’s license, so he can earn a living and feed his sick wife? Would
they falsify log books? Would they hire him to fly commercially and
illegally? Would they refer him to their friends and associates? No
license means no insurance. Would they take that risk? They did and
they still do. Now he has them ensnared in his illegal behavior. What
else will they have do to protect their own reputations, families and
finances, now that they’ve taken the first step down the slippery
slope? They’ll have to protect the psychopath first. What they, and I,
failed to consider is that the pilot’s license tests are MULTIPLE
CHOICE. To take the test, you don’t have to know how to spell. And the
psychopath reads just fine, he reads the maintenance manuals for keeping his aircraft airworthy and does the work himself. Duped again.
psychopath’s dyslexia may seem a disadvantage, but in a 180 degree
maneuver, he uses it as part of a pity ploy, asking people to make
exceptions for his disability –and nice people do. They expect
gratitude but they will get the opposite. He will use this favor, that
you did for him, to slide into your circle of trust. From there he might
offer to work on your aircraft or car to show his appreciation. He’ll
make you feel safe. Then he’ll sabotage you. Ted Bundy used a fake
cast, but this psychopath uses his real disabilities. It doesn’t matter
if it’s real or fake, since they both work equally well, in the pity
I’ve noticed that psychopaths rarely have just one goal.
They layer their goals. The first step is always to gather minions who
will do their bidding. Whether the psychopath wants sex, money, power
or just needs drama, he will bring his players together like a conductor
at a symphony.
They usually also plan an exit strategy, but it’s not very well planned because they don’t think they will lose.
example, the psychopath became friendly with the cops in three counties
and with homeland security. But he forgot the FBI. That was a chink
in his armor. He also thought I wouldn’t figure out that he was
planning to kill me, another mistake.
The last big mistake that
all psychopaths make today, is to underestimate the power of the
internet. Once everyone learns to recognize their behaviors and
strategies, they can’t hide and there will be nowhere to run –except off
an ice shelf in the arctic.
Why do psychopaths lie? Actually there is a method to their madness. The psychopath’s lies are
usually 180 degrees the opposite of the truth. These lies serve the
purpose of misdirection.
Disinformation : 180 Degrees the Opposite of the Truth
they use every single bit of information they learn about us, to
control us, they assume that everyone else, is doing that same thing.
They think we would poison their favorite food and cut their brake
lines. After all, if they think that way, doesn’t everyone? When
psychopaths lie, they are protecting themselves from being known and being vulnerable. All psychopaths are paranoid. One psychopath I know, fears and hates Google with a passion. He knows Google
is collecting information on him. I can’t imagine what he thinks Google
is planning to do to him! Instead of Google, he uses Duckduckgo as his
search engine. In addition to using Duckduckgo, psychopaths handle their
paranoia by giving disinformation at every opportunity. That
disinformation will generally point in the 180 degree opposite direction
to the truth and it creates their mask. There is only one thing that a
psychopath really values and that is, his or her mask. Because most
people can’t imagine lying about everything that they are, this mask
enables psychopaths to con and manipulate, to cheat and to steal, even
to kill and get away with it because nobody ever imagined what they were
really like. They view life as a game to win and they want to win by
lying, cheating and manipulating.
Turning the Table on the Psychopath
It’s ironic that empathic people trust the psychopath because we can’t imagine being so duplicitous. Yet the psychopath, who relies on our trust and naivety, still feels
paranoia, thinking that we will do unto them as they would do unto us.
The psychopath actually has good reason to feel this way. He or she,
knows that you might find out what they really are. You might
realize that everything they’ve ever presented to you was a malicious
lie. They believe that people will want revenge or will try to hold them
responsible for their evil deeds. For psychopaths, that’s a very good
reason to keep their identities, locations , “friends” and habits,
secret from you.
In the past, psychopaths have gotten away with
evil by playing this game of lies, deceit and manipulation. Most of us
observed some aspects of it, but didn’t know what it meant. Now the tide
is turning. As knowledge of psychopaths and their machinations becomes
more common, the lies that once hid these abusers, now reveal them. I
wonder where they will hide next?
