This is really important because sociopaths like to dominate and control.When it becomes obvious to them that they are expending more effort trying to control you then it takes you to keep them away, they often get fed up and move away to find easier prey. But is so much easier than doing this on your own...You declare war on your intuition and everything that you know to be true.Once your identity has been sufficiently eroded, the psychopath can use this final technique without any chance that you’ll leave them.If you think you are dealing with a sociopath in whatever kind of relationship, business, romantic, therapeutic or educational, here are some rules to follow (as much as is humanly possible!) This is an incredibly useful thing to do and very often overlooked when people are looking for help in dealing with a sociopath or a narcissist.A sociopath might see themselves as a fitting ruler of a country or even the world, but might also have delusional beliefs such as seeing themselves as a God or having super powers Charming While the sociopath is unable to fully understand the emotions of others, they are capable but rather highly adept at mimicking them and might appear to be charming and normal at first High IQ Often sociopaths will exhibit a high IQ which they can use to manipulate and plan Manipulative Sociopaths use their superficial charm and high IQ to manipulate others to get their ends, and their lack of empathy allows them to do this with no sense of guilt or remorse Secretive Has little need for others and is highly secretive in their actions meaning Sexually deviant The lack of remorse, guilt or emotional attachments means that the sociopath is happy to have affairs and to engage in questionable sexual activity without questioning their desires Sensitive to criticism That said, like all narcissists, the sociopath will desire the approval of others and will be highly sensitive to criticisms.They often feel they deserve adulation and admiration of the world and might feel victimized Paranoid Often their lack of understanding of emotion along with their incongruous self view means that they feel a lack of trust and paranoia Despotic/Authoritarian Often the sociopath will see themselves as a necessary authority and will be in favor or totalitarian rule Lawfulness Despite popular belief, a sociopath is not likely to be a problem to the law in later life, but rather will seek to find loopholes, to rise to a position of power, or to move to another area so that their behavior is tolerated Low tolerance for boredom Sociopaths require constant stimulation and get quickly bored Impulsive behavior A lack of regret and empathy means makes sociopaths more likely to make sudden rash decisions based on the current facts Compulsive lying As part of their facade, and as a means to an end, sociopaths are compulsive liars and will rarely speak truthfully making them hard to pin down The Mac Donald Triad In childhood sociopaths will likely have demonstrated the 'Mac Donald Triad' also known as the 'Triad of Sociopathy', traits that often are demonstrated in sociopaths from a young age.
They will leave you alone with your thoughts, planting subtle hints and suggestions over social networking to encourage your paranoia.
Every step after this one becomes so much easier when you understand the motivations and tactics of the sociopath as well as how mind control works.
A therapist who specializes in this area will help you to understand the steps taken by the sociopath to capture you and manipulate you. Firstly, it means you're able to see the relationship for what it is, something totally false that the sociopath creates in order to manipulate your emotions. He can no longer manipulate you in the same way and the effect he has becomes minimal.
Cult leaders also install a sense of superiority or elitism in the members.
They do this firstly because the members become clones of the leader and the sociopathic leader believes he is better than others.
