Codependence – Patterns and Characteristics

CoDA.org holds meetings similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. Those with Codependent tendencies can meet, share and talk.

Codependence stems from not receiving the Love, Care, Attention and Confirmation and Praise which “you deserved” when you were a child. The child’s sense of self is not allowed to develop. Codependence, is in my opinion, a survival mechanism developed by the child and carried over into adulthood.

There are people, such a Narcissists , who will search for and pick up on someone’s Codependent tendencies. Narcissists are well versed in Psychological Manipulation Techniques to reel in their Codependent targets. Codependents are easily duped by the Narcissist’s Love Bombing. The Narcissist’s Love Bombing provides the Codependent Target, that which the Target had never received from their parents, when they were a child. Unfortunately the Love Bombing was never something real. It was just another Psychological Manipulation and Control Technique used by disordered individuals such as Narcissists.

A Licensed Therapist can help one to figure out the Triggers of Codependent Tendencies. Realizing the Self Doubt and Self Sabotage and negative Self Talk is the first step towards healing. Healing opens the door to finding a Healthy relationship and could also help to limit you being targeted by Disordered Individuals such as Narcissists.

The Codependents anonymous meetings held, by CoDA.org, in your local area could be helpful tool on your road to recovery. Speak to your Therapist about CoDA.org. Also find out if your licensed Therapist holds Group Therapy sessions. You are not alone. Sadly many have had parents who were clueless about proper parenting and helping their children grow and develop their Self Worth and Self Esteem. It is my opinion that Codependence is created by abysmal parenting.

Mirroring quickly creates Rapport. Synchronizing Embedded Commands with your Target’s breathing, anchors them inside your Target’s mind.

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.

Narcissist Playbook. Eight of their Psychological Manipulation Techniques Of Mind Control

This is a “Must Read” article. It provides details of the Narcissists’s Playbook.

Bree Bonchay lists and details the key steps and in the order that Narcissists will use those Major Psychological Manipulations Techniques.

Covert Brainwashing is very real. Just ask the women who could not leave extremely physically abusive relationships. Most were still in Love with the Fantasy Figure, portrayed to them during the Love Bombing phase.

Once an Elite Hacker gets inside any major Corporate or Bank Computer Network, “they own it“. Once a Narcissist gets inside your head, “they own you“! Knowledge is Power and could act as your personal Firewall and Intrusion Detection System against Narcissists.

Have you ever wondered how narcissists and sociopaths (narcopaths) are so highly skilled at control and manipulation tactics without ever having stepped foot in a psychology classroom? Were you eve…

Narcissistic people use denial as a brainwashing technique

Good article about the Narcissistic use of “Denial”, which is yet another Narcissist Trait and Red Flag to watch out for.

I recall one time being told “Why would I have said something like that?”, How does a “rational” person respond to someone denying something which they clearly said or did? They also do not blink their eyes when making their denial. Non-Narcissists will generally blink their eyes when they tell a lie.

A short class on Mirroring, which is a Major Red Flag to watch for

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

“Pacing and Leading” is a Psychological Manipulation Technique used by Narcissists, Sociopaths and Psychopaths

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.

Have you just met your “Soul Mate”?

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.

Video is courtesy of the Beverly Banov Brown,M.S. YouTube channel

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.

Narcissistic use of Mirroring and other Manipuation Techniques to “Capture” their Targeted Victims

At first the title of this video (“Narcissism: NPD Theatre, Acting, and Your Brain“) left me wondering whether to view it. I’m glad that I did. It covers material which narcissists/psychopaths will never want you to know.

This video details the process of Mirroring, as used by Narcissists to “Capture” their Targeted Victims. Mirroring is a Psychological Manipulation Technique. It was initially formalized for use by Black Ops and Special Forces, during Interrogations and Conversions.

Video is courtesy of the Narcissist Free YouTube channel

Narcissists use Mirroring, Body Language, Shared Experiences (more than likely fake stories created by the Narcissist) and a process called Love Bombing. All this is employed to develop fake rapport to get their Target to bring down their guard. Thus making it easier for the Narcissist to establish Psychological Mind Control over their Victim.

Mirroring as used by Narcissists/Malignant Narcissists/Sociopaths

Potential victims are advised to watch carefully for Mirroring. Narcissists are very well adapt at Mirroring. Why? Because it works, allowing the Narcissist to quickly establish Rapport with their potential target.

When you know what to look for, you will spot it. I have watched Narcissists use Mirroring time and time again against potential targets, who had no clue that they were being manipulated.

Mirroring is very powerful, but can easily be spotted if you know what to look for…

Psychological Control Techniques used by Narcissists to Get What They Want

Psychopathy is the number one Health Risk, yet most people have no clue what the tell tell signs of Psychopathy are

This is an extremely important video, featuring Sandra L. Brown, M.A.,  the founder of The Institute for Relational Harm Reduction & Public Pathology Education. It speaks of the total lack of knowledge of the Pathology of Psychopaths, Sociopaths & Narcissists.

People without a conscience, who have a total lack of Empathy for others, Negatively affect Millions of lives.

The Brains of Psychopaths, Sociopaths & Narcissists differ from the Brains of those who do not suffer from such disorders. They Have suffered major Attachment Trauma resulting in the right hemisphere of their Brain being unable to wire itself properly. This occurs very early in childhood, even before the left hemisphere of the brain has started to develop.

Since Psychopaths, Sociopaths & Narcissists cannot be helped (psychologically), the best approach is to educate the public of the Signs and Red Flags to look for. To educate people about who Psychopaths, Sociopaths & Narcissists literally “Target” and “Hunt for.

Knowledge of the Signs and Red Flags  can protect people from being Targeted, Used and Abused by Psychopaths, Sociopaths & Narcissists who suffer from such disorders.

Please watch this video and share it with friends and family.

Don’t fall in love with a Narcissist. Learn the signs and “RUN” the other way.

An informative and helpful video by Monika Hoyt titled: “Don’t fall in love with a Narcissist. Learn the signs and “RUN” the other way.

Never challenge the Narcissist. They will commonly feel rejected, humiliated and threatened when they perceive even the slightest bit of criticism. If you trigger such feelings in a Narcissist, expect a “major Nuclear attack” directed at you. Trust what your gut (Inner Voice) is telling you about the Narcissist and get the hell away from them.

Narcissistic Emotional Abuse can be very damaging, even when there was no “Physical Abuse” involved.
