Narcissists have a need to be in the physical presence of their Target.

This video brings forward an interesting point, that Narcissists have a need to be in the physical presence of their Targets. Pretending to be “oh so special” over the phone or via email does not cut it. Narcissists need to be in the physical presence of those whom they target.

That is also a defining difference between say a rather Malignant Narcissist and a Psychopath. Both share many traits, yet a Psychopath does not need to spend time with their target. 

A Narcissist gets Narcissistic Supply by being in the physical presence of their Target. That is a Red Flag to watch for. Narcissists will also try to isolate their Target, so that the Target does not spend any time being physically away with family or friends. Trying to Isolate the Target/Victim is a Major Red Flag.

Even in a work environment, a malignant Narcissist who plays Lord over the office will consistently call pointless meetings just so that they could be in the physical presence of their target(s). Psychopaths do not have this form of insecurity.

Watch for this Red Flag.

Narcissists get their Narcissistic Supply by being in the physical presence of their Target/Victim.

Reduced Laughter Contagion in Children Could be the mechanism by which Narcissism, Antisocial Behavior and Psychopathy are developed

This new Medical Study sheds some light on one area of development of a child which could impact that’s child’s future.

If the young child is raised in an environment where there are no times of laughter among the people raising that child, then  the child could be negatively impacted. One example could be a Husband and Wife constantly bickering and fighting and never having time to laugh together. The Child could grow up in a sad home where the family never shared laughter together.

So something as simple of having laughter in a child’s life, could  impact their development into Human Beings who care and have empathy for fellow Human Beings.

I also suspect that this could be used in Junior Kindergarten. Bring in really funny movies for the kids to watch. The children could laugh together, which just might help develop empathy in those children who have never experienced laughter at home.

Please note this Research Study was published Open Access, so there is No Pay Wall to cross to be able to read it. I personally am grateful for Open Access publishing of Research Studies.

Too often one has to pay to be able cross a Pay Wall to be able to read a Research Study and most Research is funded by Government Agencies which are funded by us the Taxed Payers. In my opinion it seems unfair to the Tax Payers to pay once to finance the Research Study and then have to pay a second time to be able to read the Research Study which Tax Payers helped fund.

One last note. William James (1842-1910) who was the first to offer a Psychology Course in the United States, created a great quote: “We don’t laugh because we’re happy, we’re happy because we laugh.

This could be another RED FLAG to watch for. Does the suspected Narcissist or Disordered Individual genuinely laugh along with others at a gathering? In a longer term relationship, do you both laugh together often or Not At All?

How to Spot the Difference between a Narcissist, a Psychopath, and a Sociopath.

Steve Stephens the Cleveland Easter Killer. Zero Empathy for his victims and Zero Remorse.

The Steve Stephens video has him talking about himself. He speaks of killing 13 people and hunting for the 14th victim. It’s all about him.

Zero empathy for anyone.
Zero remorse for what he has done and will do.

These videos are a rare view of a reactive Psychopath. Never forget that the Spectrum of Disorders run from Normal Narcissism (yes a small amount of Narcissism is normal) to Malignant Narcissist to Killer Psychopath. If someone is already towards the malignant end of the spectrum, it would not take much to trigger them to become physically abusive.

Never dare a Disordered Individual to hit you, because they may not know how to stop once they start beating you. Much like Steve Stephens knew exactly what he was doing when he was out hunting for total strangers to kill.  He was unable to stop, once he got himself started.

The following video is of a very long rant by the Psychopath Steve Stephens. It’s all about him. It’s not his fault. It his ex-girlfriend’s fault and his Mother’s fault. He justifies his action in a telephone conversation saying that he did what he did because has anger and frustration. He states that he killed 13 people and does so without any emotion. ZERO EMPATHY for anyone.

Discover Magazine post: Into The Mind of a Psychopath

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.

Society has not come very far. In 1961 an 11 year old girl was found adrift in the Atlantic Ocean around Bermuda.

Recently a visitor to this site left a comment, regarding the fact that we have not come very far. It was in reference to a recent post about an article on the Medical News Today website (from the early 2000s).

In 1961 (back in the DSM-1 days) an America family set off on a vacation of a lifetime. They chartered a yacht, named Bluebelle, in Fort Lauderdale to cruise the ocean around the Bahama Islands.

Little did they know that the boat owner had recently setup an insurance policy for his wife. He brought his wife along on this charter.  It was supposed to be perfect. He would use the family chartering his boat as his witnesses that he and his wife were all lovey dovey. He planed to murder his wife and dump the body overboard, claiming an ocean swell must have sent her overboard.

Remember this Quote: “Just because someone says the words I Love You, does not guarantee that they are not secretly planning to make you disappear”.

 

The boat owner’s plan fell apart when he was caught murdering his wife, by the Father who purchased the Charter. So the Father was killed as was his Wife and other daughter.

The 11 year old girl was asleep in her bunk when this happened. She awoke due to the terrifying screams of her brother. Yes a vacation of a lifetime…

Click on this line to read the full details of this true story.

Unfortunately we have “not” come very far. In my opinion society has moved backwards. Online dating sites make it easy for Psychopaths to find victims. See a prior post about 3 women who disappeared after meeting the same male on an online dating site.

Click on this line to visit the CBS News website which features an interview with that girl ( Terry Jo Duperrault ), about 50 years after the event.

One take away from this post is that yes not much has changed. Be very careful who you fall in Love with.

A more significant take away is that the 11 year old “Survived”. She was severely traumatized. With the help of Licensed Professionals, she was able to overcome what had happened. Many visitors to this site have suffered all sorts of different Trauma. With time and help you can overcome what had happened to you. That 11 year girl did and so can you.

Stepfather jailed for 100 years for repeatedly throwing his three-year-old stepdaughter in hotel pool and drowning her

Video is courtesy of the Daily Star YouTube channel

An adult can escape from an abusive relationship. A three year child cannot.

While her mother slept in a hotel room, her Step Father took the little three year down to the hotel swimming pool. He then proceeded to in effect torture the three year old, by repeatedly throwing her into the pool. She could “not swim”. In another scene he has entered the pool and is shown, in security camera video, to be holding the child underwater while calmly watching the child struggle.

Someone does not do something this cruel out of the blue. It is my opinion that this guy has had practice. Possibly starting with torturing and killing small animals in his youth.

No feeling for the suffering of the child. It’s possible that he may have enjoyed watching her struggle for her life. Other hotel guests left the pool when this started.

In my opinion the video shows the stark reality of a Psychopath. It’s not often that such actions are captured on video.

This happened about 1 year ago. He just got convicted.

There are more videos on YouTube. There is also another video of a Father trying to drown his two year old daughter. This in my opinion may be related to Narcissists being Misogynists. Both of these guys are very disordered (to put it kindly). Misogyny may also extend to Psychopaths, not just to Narcissists and they take their hatred of women out on their daughters and stepdaughters. Click on this link to view a prior post written by Dr. Sam Vaknin about Narcissists being “Misogynists and women haters”.

Had this child survived her ordeal, she would have been severely traumatized. This would have damaged an innocent child for her entire life. Had she not drowned, I believe that the abuse would have continued and escalated.

Folks please be very careful with whom you get into a relationship with, especially if you have a child.

They are not complimenting you. They are covertly using Indirect Persuasion, to Groom your behavior.

Once they have you hooked via their Idealization and Love Bombing. it will be time to covertly Condition your behavior. Indirect Persuasion will be disguised as compliments. Those innocent sounding compliments, are in fact covert Psychological Conditioning aimed at getting you to behave in specific ways.

There is a very good post, well worth your time to read,  on the Psychpathfree website titled :

Grooming is Not Always Idealization: Indirect Persuasion

3 missing women had met the same man online

Associated Press posted about this on Jun 25.

Click on this Link to visit the Associated Press website to read their post titled: “Arizona authorities say 3 missing women met same man online

The latest woman to disappear introduced the male to her daughter, who immediately disliked him. The Daughter begged her Mom not to leave with the guy. (suggestion – don’t beg – call the Police)  Mom did not listen and has since “disappeared”. Two other women had previously apparently “disappeared”, after becoming involved with this guy

Interesting that the woman sold her home and closed her bank accounts. That means she was carrying a heck of a lot of cash. Why would your new lover want you to do this?

When the police finally figured out who the last woman had met, they found him living with another woman.

Key points that in my opinion are interesting.

Woman sells her home and closes all her bank accounts. I assume that she bought the RV and set to travel with this guy she met online. When you leave your friends and family you lose your support structure. With no support you are at the total mercy of the person who talked you into leaving everyone. This is a Red Flag – and  a Major One.

Seems that the woman was financing the whole thing. The guy contributed the idea to get her to leave her family and friends. Do not allow yourself to become isolated.

This is a major financial risk and venture. Talk to the Police and hire a Private Investigator to check out your new Love Interest. When the Police caught this guy, he had multiple fake IDs on him. Finger Prints proved that he was the guy that the Mother had left with.

It does not state that her daughter knew about the closing out the bank account. If it were my Mother in such a crazy situation, I would have called the Police and had hired a Private Detective to check this guy out. I would have embarrassed the hell out of the guy and gotten him and my Mother to visit the Police Station together with me. The Police can do some quick checks right away, but a complete check would take time. Mind you guy was finally caught by the Police with multiple Fake ID.

Here’s an idea, force the guy to get finger printed. Too bad if he gets pissed off. Better he gets pissed off, than having my Mother disappear after leaving with some guy she recently met on an internet dating site. It takes lots of time to get to know who you are with. Sometimes after decades people suddenly discover who they thought they were living with was just a fake persona. Disordered people have to move quickly to isolate their target, before their mask slips too much and more people realize how screwed up they are.

Also make sure to get lots of photographs of the guy and your Mother (using this case as an example). Get him to remove any hats or other head gear (motorcycle helmet for ex). Put the photos and finger prints into a Bank Safety Deposit Box so they can’t mysteriously disappear like the Mother had.

There is no valid reason to close one’s bank account, especially after having sold her house. Hint – another Red Flag. You want access to money, get an American Express Gold card and other companies offer similar things. That leaves signatures and witnesses. Leave very large amounts of money in a Bank or even in a bank Safety Deposit Box. It amazes me that the Mother got suckered into doing that. Bet ya the guy in this scenario contributed “not one dime”.

Another Red Flag is that when family members and friends show a distinct dislike for your new lover. That was mentioned in prior post about a TedX Talks video given by Alexandra Redcay. titled “Tips on selecting the Right Relationship by Alexandra Redcay“.

I’ve posted this line a few times “Just because someone smiles at you, does not mean that they are your friend“.

Here is a new variation “Just because someone tells you that they Love you, does not guarantee that they are not secretly planning to make you DISAPPEAR.“. Wake Up people…

Hunting humans: A future for tourism in 2200

There was a paper recently published in the Peer Reviewed Scientific Journal called Futures, in the April–May 2016 issue (on pages 34–46). The paper was titled “Hunting humans: A future for tourism in 2200“. The author of that paper was Daniel William Mackenzie Wright, who is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire.

Hunting Humans is something which I believe Narcissists already do. Not to kill, but to secure sources of Narcissistic Supply. For example, Empaths and Codependents are sought out (ie hunted for) and targeted. You do not have to wait for the year 2200 to have Humans hunting other Humans.

Death as a sport is also not something new. The Romans did something similar eons ago, with their Gladiator battles. My two cents worth regarding this: is that something very large is hard to turn around. You can’t turn an ocean liner on a dime. Same goes for humanity. I am of the opinion that there has been an explosion in the number of Disordered individuals, be they Narcissists or Sociopaths or Psychopaths.

There is a saying in Investing Circles that “A Trend is your Friend“. Get on board when a stock is rising and the odds are that it could climb higher. Lets assume that I am correct and that there is a growing trend to having society filled with Disordered Individuals. Trends keep going. The Scientific Paper about Hunting Humans as a Tourist Attraction “could” become a  sick reality by the year 2200. Psychopaths would have a field day.

The paper presented the following question: “In what circumstance is it acceptable for one human being, for entertainment or leisure, (to) watch or even pay to see the death of another human being?“. It would be interesting to have said question presented to Psychopaths and to hear their answers. They just might answer back with a question “When is it “not” acceptable?” along with the look of dismay on their face, because to them it is always acceptable (and pleasurable). Not acceptable behaviour is a concept generally foreign to Psychopaths, who set their own standards of behaviour. If it suits them, they do it.

The following line was from the Abstract of the article: “Death as entertainment by form of detachment (emotionally and physically) will further influence the future fun aspect of hunting humans.“. The author used the words “fun aspect of hunting humans“. Makes me wonder how much “fun” the author would have, should he be the one being hunted. This article was not something out of say the National Enquirer. The article was in a Peer Reviewed “Scientific Journal”.

Those who physically abuse others, are emotionally detached from the person that they are abusing. Brain Scans of Psychopaths seem to indicate that the Pleasure Centers of a Psychopath’s Brain are turned on when they view images and videos of people being physically hurt and or killed. Psychopaths are wired to gain pleasure from hurting, torturing and killing a human being or animal. Psychopaths may lack a Conscience. Hunting Humans for sport, while on a vacation, is something that could draw lots of Psychopaths.

Being an Empath can open the door to Living Hell.

Being an Empath can open the door to Living Hell, for the Empath and those close to them.

The video is about the Tragic Life of an Empath, who was targeted by a Narcissist, Sociopath and Psychopaths.

Her Narcissistic Ex Husband, shot the Empath multiple times at close range. The Narcissist Ex shot himself in the head and died.

The Empath survived the shooting and took almost a decade to recover. A blood transfusion given during her ordeal was tainted with Hepatitis C. This Empath could not catch a break.

Then a Sociopath and Psychopaths targeted her and her new husband. The Empath and her new Husband end up being buried alive together, by the Psychopaths.

Michael Madison, who had strangled 3 women, gets Death Sentence

A Psychopath Serial Killer, who killed at least three women, has a Defense “Team”. Sadly the three women who Micheal Madison had strangled were not provided the same luxury. The amount of money being spent on this Psychopathic killer’s Defense “Team” could have enabled Cleveland to hire more Police Officers.

His Defense Team argued that Michael Madison should not get the Death Sentence because he did not kill the three women with “precision and calculation” (as per the news article). The Psychopath strangled three women.  Is there a magical formula to strangle someone with “Precision”? Some Lawyer had the audacity to use such an argument.
