Understanding Manipulation Tactics.
Dr. George Simon was a past President of the Arkansas Psychological Association, and is a Board Certified Diplomate in Forensic and Clinical Psychology. Before retiring, Dr George Simon was a supervising psychologist for the Arkansas Dept. of Correction. You could correctly say that he is an Expert on the behaviour of Narcissists and Psychopaths. In his private practice he helped individuals trapped in relationships with personality disordered individuals.

When dealing with Narcissists, knowledge is power. When you know what behaviours to watch for, you can learn to pickout Narcissitic individuals. You may get a glimpse of what may lay behind their mask.
Knowledge may help to prevent you from
becoming their next prey.
The Discovermag website has an interesting article titled:
Into the Mind of a Psychopath
The article discusses the life long challenge which Dr. Robert Hare had set out for himself. That being trying to understand Psychopaths.
Psychopaths and Narcissists share a number of key traits. Both lack empathy for others. Both can be extraordinarily charming The charm is used to get the victim to lower their natural fight or flight defenses. The charm reels the victim in for Narcissistic Supply or Sadistic Pleasure. Both have no remorse for what they do to their victims.
The article is a good read about one of the pioneers into the research on Psychopaths. Robert Hare was the first to use MRI Imaging to show brain scans of Psychopaths.
Narcissists use Mind Control, Psychological and Persuasion Techniques to hook their Target.
I have mentioned Mirroring more than a few times, in posts on this site. Watching out for someone Mirroring you can become instinctive, if practiced. Mirroring is a very powerful Manipulation Technique.
Along with Mirroring, a person’s breathing pattern is a doorway into their mind. I’ll give two examples.
Mirroring the breathing pattern of your Target, will shut down their Flight or Fight response. The Narcissist will breathe in, when your Target does. The Narcissist will breathe out, when your target does. The target will have no clue that they are being manipulated big time. The target will then be receptive to the Narc’s further manipulations.
Another approach is the Narcissist giving the Target embedded commands and potential anchors “only” when the Target is breathing out. Once the Narc’s commands are anchored inside the Target’s mind, the Narcissist can trigger them whenever they want. The process does not have to be something that is repeated, though repetition helps to deepen the Narc’s programming of the Target.
What really amazes me is that Narcissists
do this stuff instinctively,
while the vast majority of the population
have no clue about these techniques.

Mind Control Techniques, also known as Psychological Manipulation – Control Techniques, are very real and are powerful. Narcissists use them, because they work.

Psychological Manipulation Techniques are real and are powerful. Narcissist use them because they work. Victims change so much from the person they were before the Narcissist targeted them.
Must view video filled with insights about Love Bombing and other Red Flags.
Her new Lover was talking about Marriage very shortly after their first meeting. This woman became so Psychologically Manipulated by the Love Bombing, that she bought her Wedding Dress within the first 2 weeks of meeting that new Lover. Classic Love Bombing and Major Red Flag. Love Bombing worked faster than Brain Washing / Mind Control techniques. The new Lover was in the mean time also seeing another woman.
The person Love Bombing you, is also Mirroring you. That establishes a very deep rapport and trust in the mind of the victim being Psychologically Manipulated. That deep Rapport and Trust is something which keeps physical Abuse Victim in Abusive Relationship.
The Victim dismisses being kicked down a fight of stairs and reminds herself of the beginning of the relationship when the Love Bombing and Mirroring were going on at full speed. She tells herself that he was so sweet and so charming and amazing and so lovable. The fact that he now punches her in the head multiple times and gives her Black Eyes on a regular basis, does not dislodge the Mind Control established during the Love Bombing phase. The abuse is dismissed because she is still “in Love” with the fake Persona she met during the Love Bombing phase.
Love Bombing is not about Love. Love Bombing is strictly about establishing Control over the Victim.

One thing to note is how this woman kept attracting Disordered Individuals. Christine De Canonville noted in a seminar that once you have been with a Disordered Individual, you have been primed and other Disordered Individuals will spot you in a crowd and target you.
A concise explanation of the power of using Mirroring and Matching. Narcissists are well versed in Mirroring and Matching. They use it all the time when Targeting someone.
Mirroring and Matching works, because the majority of people are consciously unaware of it. When you actively look for this major Red Flag and spot it’s use, you make it powerless.
It could be a danger signal, if you catch someone new persistently using Mirroring and Matching while interacting with you. In such a case, look for other Red Flags such as Love Bombing.
If you consistently spot multiple Red Flags, when with a particular person, then ask yourself why would they be using powerful Psychological Manipulation Techniques against you?
Learn about the Red Flags of Narcissists and then watch for them. Many websites discuss them. Many YouTube videos discuss them. Google is your friend, just do some Google searches…

In the past I have discussed Psychological Manipulations Techniques used by Narcissists, such as Love Bombing and Mirroring. Well their bag of Mind Control techniques does not stop at Love Bombing and Mirroring.
Next up, lets discuss “Pacing and Leading“.
“Pacing and Leading” is another Psychological Manipulation Technique commonly used by Narcissists, Sociopaths and Psychopaths. They will Love Bomb you. They will Mirror you. They will use Pacing and Leading. They want to establish Rapport without you realizing that it is all fake and is being done in an attempt to “control you“. Once Rapport is established, your natural defense mechanism will be turn off, “by you”.
Love Bombing, Mirroring, Pacing and Leading work.
That is why Narcissists, Sociopaths and Psychopaths are so well versed in these Psychological Manipulation Techniques. For you this is all new. The Narcissist knows that you and most people have never even heard of this stuff.

What wouldn’t anyone give to meet their “Soul Mate“? Someone who is attentive and oh so charming. The constant texting and or phone calls to tell you that they “Love You”. They say the things which you so much want to hear. They are sweeping you off your feet.
If your new Love Interest is a Narcissist, they eventually will be sweeping you under the rug. They are oh so charming, until you find out why they were so charming. Wake up, they want something.
Your newly found “Soul Mate” Narcissist is Love Bombing you. That is a Psychological Manipulation Technique used to get you to drop your instinctive guard when meeting new people. They want to totally shutdown your natural fight or flight response. Once that response is shutdown, then they can take total control of you, yes you. Do you still think that you have met your “Soul Mate”?
The constant communications and contact with your newly found “Soul Mate”, is also helping to isolate you from other people. They know what they are doing, as they have had lots of prior practice. You on the other hand are naive and trusting. Been there, done that.
Like other videos by Beverly Banov Brown, I’m glad that I can share them here via YouTube. Her videos are to the point and I hope that everyone finds them to be informative.
Love Bombing is a major Red Flag to watch for. Narcissist hide their Love Bombing in plain sight. They use Love Bombing because it works. The same reason why they also use Mirroring while they are Love Bombing you. Narcissists are very well versed in both of these Psychological Manipulation Techniques.
