I You might not realize this but a small percentage of the population within society can be classified as psychopaths. At least 1% of all people fall into this category and most of them are not serial killers. However, many psychopaths are manipulative individuals who intentionally cause harm to other people. They do not have a real sense of remorse or responsibility for their actions.
So how can you tell if a person is a psychopath? Honestly, it is very difficult for most people to spot a psychotic individual. Why? Because most psychopaths are good at hiding their true nature. Psychopaths are fantastic social chameleons who have the inner ability to fit into most situations. They can blend in with just about any group of people by mirroring and impersonating their mannerisms and behaviors. They also use these skills to acquire money, sex and attention.
Keep in mind that most psychopaths are secretly attention seeking individuals. They will engage in a variety of manipulative behaviors just to get attention. Many psychopaths are charming, somewhat naive and like to have fun. Most of them use these likable qualities just to fool unsuspecting friends and casual acquaintances into believing they are great people. Underneath this facade lies an insidious nature that makes them dangerous and deadly.
When a psychopath becomes threatened or bored their true natures will emerge. They will draw friends and family members into an argument and have them believing they are the ones who started the incident. As the argument progresses, a psychopath will project their negative qualities onto the other person. It is hard to contend with a psychopath because they have the ability to pull up a person’s faults and bad qualities within seconds.
