Everyone dreams of living life normally and peacefully with another person who is pretty much alike and understands each other. The sentence sounds like a stuffed fantasy, and perhaps, many couples amazingly find the privilege to live in the same desired world. But, unfortunately, some people end up with mentally disturbed partners, antisocial, and emotional psychopaths.
The personality disorder is harmful to an individual but most importantly it is hazardous to another person living with such emotional psychopaths. In many scenarios, the person living with such psychopaths doesn’t know the actual trait of their company and later falls into greater trouble in life. The emotional psychopaths basically are the people who are not capable to understand other’s feelings and emotions.
Such people are normal from the outside, and a normal person cannot identify between an actual normal person and the emotional psychopaths. The emotional psychopaths don’t have the ability to understand others but can easily manipulate them for personal gain or fun. They don’t care what happens to others (or even their own loved ones) but ultimately want what they need. The emotional psychopaths are cheerful, friendly, and appealing and easily influence others. So, how can you recognize emotional psychopath? You may not recognize easily but here are some ways, which might help you to find emotional psychopaths.
They are always right, and everything is your fault.
The emotional psychopaths never want to admit that they are wrong. When you are fighting with your partner (an emotional psychopath), he makes you believe that the reason for the argument is you and you have started it all. You will fall into their trap as they are charming and so convincing in making you realize that everything is your fault.
You are to be blamed, not they!
So, if there are any problems in your personal life or social life, the emotional psychopath blames you for that. Suppose, if you are having an unhappy marriage, these psychopaths will blame you and accuse you of being a bad partner.
They degrade the human being in you.
The emotional psychopath destroys the personality in you. They tear you down and fill your head that you are delusional and cannot do anything worthy. They won’t allow you to think for yourself because they feel that if you can motivate yourself then you might understand you deserve better (not them).
They cut-off your public-interactions and restrict socialization.
The emotional psychopaths never allow you to hang out with your friends and colleagues. They will even prohibit you from seeing others because they think that your friends will share an opinion about their behavior and eventually convince you to leave them.
The main trait that every emotional psychopath possesses is the ability to gaslight. They can easily manipulate the facts, and twist the lie if you caught one. When they gaslight you, they will make you doubt your own perception and reality. They intentionally mislead you into the dark.
