Books on "how to deal" with sociopaths/psychopaths

Postby Argv » Fri Mar 30, 2012 8:55 pm

I don't understand this, and maybe it's just me.

As a master of manipulation and versatility, how in the f*ck would a 'normal' be able to even attempt to compete with a pscyhopath?

I am well aware when someone is talking to me in a way that is other than genuine. I can tell if someone is trying to lead me, or trying to avoid me. I can tell by body language, voice tones, facial expressions and general behavior. Being that I study every person I am around. I watch their every move and gesture. I listen in on conversations. I listen when people talk to me. I evaluate what people are saying and how they are saying it.

So what book is really going to help you? The best book in the world for this would have one sentence: If you feel you are in the presence of a psychopath/sociopath (AsPD obviously, but just using laymans terms), be nice and thoughtful, but not trusting. Is this the sheeps guide to avoiding wolves? ha! good luck with that.

Oh wait. I know. Don't go out alone.. little sheepy sheep. ;)

The sheeple are f*cked. No matter how you look at it. They can't compete even CLOSE to a psychopath. If you're a big guy, I use a weapon, but prefer to prey on the weak anyways. I mean.. there is NO WAY a normal is going to be able to do anything but just "avoid trouble" and hope they don't stick out as a weakling.

That just shows how stupid people really are. I bet there are people that buy these books and think it'll do them an ounce of good. hahaha. You're kidding yourself, and you're trying to use a rule book on a person that doesn't have rules. christ.

Learn to spot them and then avoid dealing with them in the future.

That'll be $0.02

Which books are you referring to specifically?

And no, I don't think books will help the sheeple compete maybe just appeal to their emotional side and comfort them. Kinda like God, "Monster spray" for the kiddos, and other magical thinking, it's a false way people create order, hope, control, and other emotional stuff I don't have the words for, rather than admit the truth of reality, they comfort themselves by looking for ways to hide from reality.

Would you like some mint jelly with your sheeple?

When I notice people trying to avoid me, I have a tendency to make it a point to make sure they notice me and try to get them to talk. I won't let it go. Every time I see you, I remember. ;)

Nothing specific. Just was looking up random sh*t and saw all these books about psychopaths and dealing with them. Most of them refer to the workplace, which I suppose there are tactics you can use when you're not out in the open and a person is restrained somewhat from doing anything they want.. but I saw a couple that were about dealing with them in general. I just thought the idea of it was crazy at best.

First, you have to know that your're dealing with one, and when I suspect someone is trying to assess me, I back off and take a different route. Next time I see them, completely different approach. Some people just take more time to convince. Others jump right into it. Someone trying to control me or thinking they are smarter than I am is just going to piss me off, though I might laugh it off anyways and move on to the next subject. I will do my best to make the person feel uncomfortable around me though. ;)

OK, that's an obvious exaggeration... so what's the truth?
